Brownies!!! Yummy!!! This is the brand I used to buy before I discovered clean eating. I suppose my rationale was, “Hey, it’s Ghiradelli so it must be a quality product.” Ummm…no.

Here are a few of the ingredients:

Enriched wheat flour: All “enriched” means is that it has been processed and all the nutrients have been stripped out of the product.

Soy lecithin: Soy has been linked to many health related problems such as breast and thyroid cancer. Soy increases the body’s need for B and D vitamins and soy foods contain high levels of aluminum which is toxic to the nervous system and the kidneys. You can read more about the dangers of soy here.

Canola oil: Yuk! Did you know that up to 40 percent of canola oil comes from trans fats? Trans fats, as you probably know, have been associated with inflammation and insulin resistance.
