8. Processed Meats
No more processed meats or bacon! Nitrates help processed meat look more appetizing. However, nitrates become cancer causing chemicals in your body. Avoid processed meat with nitrates – even organic nitrate.
Processed meat is extremely high in sodium (we’ll talk salt next!) and in saturated fats. Since we’ve already talked about fats, know that saturated fats are hard on your heart and your waist line.
Support that thirty-year-old heart and give up processed meat.
