Here is a more colorful version of the SummerTomato graphic “How to Find Real Food at the Supermarket” found on page 114 of the ebook. It is amazing how little ‘real’ food is to be found at the grocery store.

Some of my favorites:
“Does it make a health claim” – Like “Gluten Free” or “Low Fat”
“Might contain Bacon anyway”

Which is your favorite ‘yes/no’ question?

The media, food manufacturers, and various self-appointed gurus seem to overstate the potential health benefits of certain foods. Why? Probably because it makes for a better story and helps sell more products. Because of this constant barrage of ‘facts,’ we end up following many fad diets and glorifying certain foods over others.

Below are the author’s ten picks for the most overrated health foods. In the book she provides why these make her top-ten list.

Top 10 Most Overrated Health Foods
1. Yogurt 
2. Soy 
3. Egg Whites 
4. Margarine 
5. Bananas
6. Fake Meat 
7. Protein Bars
8. Whole-Grain Flour 
9. Low-Fat Salad Dressing 
10. Fruit Juice

I must run in the wrong crowds, I never hear talk of the health benefits of fake meats but I do hear the praises of so-called whole-grains. What foods make your top-ten list?

Update: Just found this post on Darya Rose’s blog, Summer Tomato, detailing the Top-Ten.
