Hey guys,

Just wanted a quick opinion on these packaged foods. Some of them have a Gluten Free label on them. Let me know what you guys think.

I know some of these do have lentils/rice which are a red flag, however looking for other potential 'red flag' ingredients.

Thanks

You can add turmeric to a multitude of other things you make at home. You don't need boxed curry food and the other awful things that will set you back health wise to get a bit of turmeric in your diet.

I understand; but i asked because the packaging had so many things like gluten free, no MSG, no preservatives and what not, made me thinking that maybe its not that bad.

Also, the *organic* tag in the ingredients list suggest to me that it is trying to take more money with the appearance of being healthier. A few minor supposedly organic ingredients does not compare with fresh local produce from a trusted source so that actually can be a red flag for me in interpreting the health claims of the packaging.

Plus relying on beans and rice. There doesn't look to be anything 'good' about any of them. I'd put them on the first step of improvement from SAD.

I would not eat any of them...

First one has seed oil...

Second one is missing the egg yolks...

Third one has corn oil...

Fourth one just no... (can't read label on it) but very unlikey that it is good to eat..

Fifth one has seed oil in it...

It would be better to cook if possible.

If the ingredients list is more than a couple ingredients, it's probably not good for you.

Other red flags:

  • Cornstarch in #1 & #5.
  • Sugar in #3.
  • Carb count in #2 suggests sugar there, too. (Can't see ingredients.)
  • Sauce on #4 suggests hidden sugar--though all those carbs could come from the potatoes. (Can't see ingredients there, either.)

1 has rice, tomato (hello nightshade), cornstarch and garbanzo beans. 2 no egg yolk. low in cholesterol? (not a good thing). 3 Lentils, nigthshade, corn oil. 4 I don't see an ingredient list but anything from lean cuisine is not your friend. 5 Again rice, beans, nightshade,seed oil and cornstarch.

Anything pre made in a box I would steer clear from.

Legumes (lentils, beans) are not Paleo, either.
