There’s a lot of “conventional wisdom” out there about healthy food that just doesn’t hold up when you look at the numbers. Learning more about some common food myths can help you avoid consuming too much sugar, too much fat or even too much sodium. Below are the 15 “healthy food” myths you shouldn’t be falling for.
1. Juice is Healthy
Not all juice is created equal. Fresh squeezed orange juice is packed with goodness and vitamin C – but orange “drink” labeled as juice could just be orange flavored sugar water. Prepackaged apple and orange juices can be packed with sugar – apple juice contains more sugar than Pepsi or Coke, so proceed with caution if you are trying to cut calories.
