Always choose whole foods when you can to avoid processed junk.
For instance, when choosing a peanut butter, there are many options.
Some brands have added sugar, corn syrup and hydrogenated oils while other brands just have peanuts. Making your own peanut butter is another option to be in control of ingredients.
The same principles apply to common processed foods items like jams, nut milks, breads, sauces, etc.
Eat Well, Live Well
