Healthy foods that are actually not that good for you
Deciding what to eat can be arduous if you are trying to eat healthily. After all, a box of cookies always looks delicious.
According to a list by Cosmopolitan, it turns out though that some of the foods people think are healthy, really are not.

If you have been swapping frozen yogurt for ice cream in an attempt to make a good choice, it turns out, just because it has the word yogurt in the name doesn't mean it is a healthy.
There is sugar galore in frozen yogurt, so while it might be a little better than ice cream, it's not great.
Same thing goes for that nutritious fruit smoothie for breakfast.
Yes, it has fruit in it, but fruit contains sugar and that will not help keep the waistline trim. It's better to just eat a piece of fruit.
Frozen diet meals are also not the best choice. They might be low in calories and fat, but they are probably high in additives. It's better to just cook a low-calorie meal at home.
But, definitely, cook the meal and avoid the energy bar. These are quick meals on the go, but like so many other things that taste good, they are packed with sugar.
Well, if these convenience healthy foods aren't any better for you, I guess that means a trip to the drive through is just as good.
