Boxed Chicken Buyers Beware

Hello Everyone,

I've arrived in Maryland for a conference today. It's a pretty gloomy day here, but that's not something to get me down. 

I was sent a great email yesterday regarding chicken that I would like to share with you. This is a staple of the Eat-Clean Diet and something I have in the house all the time. The author of the email wanted me to tell them if their box of frozen chicken was okay or not. She listed the ingredients off to me and they included: water, flour, salt, and thickeners. Hmmm... No wonder she was concerned. This doesn't sound like clean food to me. 

I'll leave this as a reminder to all of you to check the labels of your food. The big fancy print on the front of the box can be misleading, so take the time to read the packaging properly. The best case scenario is to purchase food with one ingredient on the label, such as oatmeal, where the one ingredient is.... you guessed it... oats! You can get fresh chicken the same way. Buy it fresh from the butcher. In my little town we have an organic butcher with delicious fresh meat options. He'll even order in bison for me when I need it. 

So when you're off to the supermarket today to stock up on your clean eats be a smart shopper and a label reader!


  1. Well that is surprising. Never thought to look at the label of boxed chicken. I'll certainly be doing that from now on.



  2. Hi my name is Nicole and today is my first day eating clean. I'm very excited on my new start in life. This decision could not have come at a better time for me. If anyone as any comments or suggestions i am open to receive them
