Health Tip: Avoiding Processed Foods

(HealthDay News) -- Processed foods often contain lots of fat, salt and other preservatives that make them considerably less healthy.

To avoid processed foods, the American Heart Association suggests:

  • Cook your own meals, instead of eating ready-made meals.

  • Skip bottled salad dressings, and create a dressing yourself.

  • Instead of flavored yogurt, buy plain yogurt and add fruit.

  • Grow your own fruit and vegetables.

  • Choose less processed snacks, such as cut crunchy vegetables, popcorn, nuts or seeds.
