Everyone knows those foods that are healthy and those that are not, right? You would be surprised at which foods, although advertised as the “healthy option”, really are anything but. In fact, some of the worst offenders are filled with ingredients that, on top of being unhealthy, keep those inches on your waistline and won’t let you take off those extra pounds. There are still other foods that, although they actually are healthy, they are simply too dangerous to consider eating. There are probably dozens of foods which would make this list, but let’s take a look at just the top 7 foods that you absolutely must remove them from your diet if you care at all about your health.
You will be surprised to hear that sprouts are unhealthy. There has been more than 40 recalls on sprouts due to either contamination or health issues in only 20 years. This applies to all types of sprouts including peas, alfalfa and bean. Sprouts grow in warm conditions, which are also perfect for the survival of bacteria such as listeria, salmonella and E.coli. In addition to that, you may not be aware of how long the sprouts may have stayed by the time you go to buy them from a store. This is considering the fact that sprouts can grow bacteria in a short period if they are not handled in a proper way.
2. Ranch Dressing
Most Americans undoubtedly love ranch dressing. We literally put it on everything from pizzas and fries to salads and burgers. As much as it tastes great, ranch dressing is not good for your health. There is more than 75 calories in each tablespoon. One ounce of ranch dressing has 7 grams of fat and 137 calories. Sadly, most people consume about 100 grams of salad, which transforms to 500 calories.
