8 Foods You Think Are Healthy But They Aren’t!

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Mar 02, 2017

It’s easy to assume that a food is good for you if it is advertised as health-promoting, or is sold in a health food store.  Turns out that a lot of the foods marketed to us for YEARS as “healthy,” are long on hype and short on facts.

Check out my video above about 8 foods you may think are “healthy” but the evidence shows they AREN’T.

How many of these do YOU eat on a regular basis? If your answer is ZERO, you get 100 GreenSmoothieGirl points! 100 more if you drink your quart of green smoothie every day!

And about food #8:  I’d love to send you a FREE printable chart ranking the good, bad, and ugly of sugar substitutes. You’ll learn which ones to avoid, which ones to use, and exactly how to use them.  Get it here–my gift to you!

    How about Xylitol sweetener?

  2. Love what you said about yogurt. I like to make goat milk kefir instead and add some berries to that. Great video thanks for sharing!

    What about Agave as a sweetener?

    Love what you said about soy – I know so many people who eat a ton of soy products thinking that they are being so healthy! I have to admit – I am a bit of a sucker for yoghurt… but only the unsweetened kind! I never eat the flavoured stuff, only plain, unsweetened yoghurt 🙂

      Soy is misunderstood and unfairly maligned when one knows what soy is good. I have been using a particular soy protein powder which is water-washed, not alcohol washed, for nearly 4 decades and I am the healthiest person I know. The benefit of soy for breast health is considerable. If you want another view of soy, let me know so I can provide you with the research I have.

  7. Was looking forward to getting Daily Dose for myself, significant other, son and daughter, but $95/$135 x 4 per month is just too costly.. :/

    1. Robyn says:

      yes. we do the discount to offset…..but the sad thing is, we’ve all been given so much processed, fillered, genetically modified, reductionist food and supplements that when someone makes something really QUALITY it does seem expensive. it’s super expensive to be sick too. hope you can give them a try.

    In your mind, is PureVia the same as Truvia? It says it’s “made from Stevia extract”.

    1. Robyn Openshaw says:

      hi rebecca, i don’t know that brand….but if the ingredients say organic stevia, you should be fine. Truvia is molecularly altered, not the natural plant.
