Aisles to avoid at the grocery store – Candy

The next aisle that should be avoided at the grocery store is the candy aisle. IMG_20140301_145226_761 I remember when I was a kid there was maybe two or three shelves worth of candy at the grocery store and the shelves full of candy that are located at the checkouts.  Today the candy aisle is huge and the candy up by the checkouts is still there.  That’s a lot of candy.  I say avoid it, don’t look, you don’t need it!

Candy is loaded with sugar, fat and bunch of other ingredients that I can’t pronounce, which if truth be known probably aren’t good for you.  If you must venture down the candy aisle here is a link to the best candy choices and other treats that may be better for you than that Snickers.  Healthy Candy Choices.

Here is a website I found that may be worth a look, Natural Candy Store.  This website has all kinds of candies in several different categories that include; organic, dye free, GMO-friendly, allergy friendly, gluten-free, vegan, fair-trade and Made in the U.S.A.  There is also a list of brands in the menu bar you might want to check out for your best options.

The best idea I can give you, instead of candy, would be to buy fruits instead, which comes from mother nature and is naturally good for you.  It has natural sugars and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.  All natural is always the way to go in my book.
