White Powder Free

Posted by terrepruitt on October 26, 2010

On the way home from teaching a Nia class a week or so ago, I went shopping and I remembered — finally — to take a picture of the non-dairy powdered creamer.  Since I never got back to putting the picture in my original post about my powdered creamer I decided to add the picture here to a new post giving you an update.  Its been about a month and a half and I am still NOT using that white powder.  Seriously, that is what it is.  It is not food.  Just because the ingredients have been deemed edible by the FDA, does NOT mean it is FOOD.  It is DEFINITELY NOT NUTRIENTS.

I think I need to have this label adhered to my arm as a reminder.

Corn syrup solids . . . . doesn’t even sound good.  While the label might tout 0 grams of trans fat (I don’t know if the label does say that because I didn’t look) it has partially hydrogenated soybean oil in it . . . . so it has trans fat.  Then it has sodium casinate . . . something they know no one will know what that is so they kindly describe it for us as a “milk derivative”. . . . then more “stuff”.  Yeah, I really needed to be drinking that EVERYDAY!

Again  . . . . . I am not a perfect eater.  I wish I was, but I am trying to eat healthier than this stuff.

As I said in my other post . . . this (the first picture) was my powder of choice . . . the store brand, whichever store I was at.  I preferred that over the “national” brand, but I took a picture of that too.

White powder free 2.5 months and counting.  🙂
