Better to know the guidelines and principles than for me to give out a "list" as products, as well as their profile, change often.

The majority of the food you consume should be "real" food and does not come in a box, package, wrapper, etc. These are fresh fruits, vegetables, starchy vegetables, intact whole grains and legumes. Spend most all your time and money in the produce department, a local farmers market, or your own garden. Consume these foods with as little processing and as close to their natural state as possible.

Limit all packaged, processed, canned, boxed items as much as possible.

The Guidelines I recommend are..

1) Check the calories first

2) Check the calories from fat second and make sure they are no more than 20% of the calories

3) Check the sodium and make sure the sodium in mgs, is no more than the calories per serving

4) read the ingredients
- avoid all forms of saturated, hydrogenated, trans, tropical, interesterified fats and oils
- avoid or limit the amount of refined sugars/sweeteners. The further down the ingredient list the better
- make sure the product is made only from whole grain if it is a grain product
