Just because it’s organic doesn’t mean it’s automatically good for you.

1. Soda

You may find soda that’s free of artificial colors, preservatives, and even the dreaded corn syrup. However, it’s still full of sugar even if it’s called organic liquid cane syrup, evaporated cane juice, brown rice syrup, etc.

We suggest: Try some seltzer with lime or one of these calorie-free beverages.

2. Macaroni and cheese

Kraft’s ubiquitous blue box is now available with organic cheddar cheese! Gone are artificial colors and preservatives, but this food is still more of a snack than a meal. Plus it contains no vegetables and only 2 grams of fiber.

We suggest: Toss in some steamed vegetables to get more vitamins.

  1. Lame article stating the obvious. Now I remember why it’s called Reader’s Disgust.

  2. You forgot nutella, it is still a junk food. It is 200 calories and 110 is fat calories. Even Jif is producing their own brand now because Nutella has taken a chunk out of the peanut butter crowd. Anything with chocolate is still sugar and palm oil.

  3. for one organic food is delicous and healthy it does pay better to eat healthier than the gmo artificial crap. ill stick to my organic diet i have never felt so much better since i switched to organic

  4. If anyone actually believes that eating everything that is “healthy” for you will prevent diseases like Cancer , is a fool. It’s not the calories–it’s the moderation. We only live once so why not treat oneself to some food that is just plain delightful to eat.

  5. Maybe it is just my non organic fed mind, but when did organic claim to be fat, calorie,salt, sugar free?

  6. If you needed to read this article to find this out there is no hope for you. You will always be fat and dumb.
