Mmm, tasty Doritos corn chips. I remember eating those chips growing up. My mom would buy the Frito-Lay variety pack, and I’d quickly run over and steal the Doritos. Those were the days of unhealthy and hazardous eating. Thankfully, I’m no longer addicted to those bad boys. I often ask myself, “Would I have been a lot smarter if toxic junk food never passed my lips?” Who knows… All I know is that I killed many brain cells during that era of “Standard American Diet” living.
Deadly processed foods are very addictive. Just try and get your family member off of Doritos and you’ll see what I’m talking about. They say it’s easier to change someone’s religion than to change someone’s diet. I believe that! Sadly, food manufacturers love adding harmful ingredients to their products – causing us to buy more and more of their foods. These foods continually contribute to us getting fatter and fatter – not to mention sicker and sicker.
All you have to do is glance at the picture above. That photo is enough to make any Dorito lover sweat. And to think I devoured bags and bags of those suckers!
So, how can you avoid dining on these toxic ingredients?
Well, you’re going to have to dig deep and find the will-power to abolish them from your existence. Scale down or cut out processed foods from your diet. I know it’s not always easy, especially if you’re starting out, but just start taking baby steps, and soon you’ll be on the road to wholesome food paradise. Fresh and natural foods are better for you anyway. But I’m sure you already know this.
Snack on fruit, nuts, seeds, healthy fats, or vegetable crudités and rice cakes with hummus and salsa – anything but deadly chips laced with chemicals from hell. Soon your taste buds will be like new, and you won’t even miss Doritos anymore.
Oh, and before I sign off… For the love of God, don’t go believing people who say Doritos are not bad for you. I say this because PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi said on a Fox Business Channel’s program that “Doritos are not bad for you. They’re nothing more than corn mashed up, fried in oil, and flavored in the most delectable way.” Yikes!
You know what I say about that? LIES! You’d have to be completely zombied out to believe that nonsense. All you have to do is research the ingredients yourself. It’s really not that difficult. Google makes it easy for us to become food label detectives.
Americans currently spend about 90% of their food income buying processed junk like PepsiCo’s beloved Doritos. Make a difference now by eating more whole foods. Get those greedy companies where it hurts the most – their bank accounts! Spend your money on quality food instead of poison. Maybe that will get them to remove the venomous ingredients from their best-selling products.
