Organic Foods That Are Still Junk Food

Just because it's organic doesn't mean it's always good for you.

3. Ice Cream

We won’t deny that Stonyfield Farms Organic Crème Caramel ice cream is delicious. But with 260 calories per half cup serving it’s only 20 calories less than Häagen Dazs Crème Brulee ice cream.

We suggest: Stick with Häagen Dazs Vanilla Frozen Yogurt. It may not be organic, but it is all-natural and tastes just like vanilla ice cream. Plus, you get 9 grams of protein and live active cultures with every half cup. Just remember even this is a treat.

4. French Fries

Cascadian Farms Crinkle Cut fries have no hydrogenated oils and no preservatives. You cannot, however, deep fry them and eat them to your heart’s content.

We suggest: Portion control. They still have only 2 grams of fiber per serving.
