I've lately been trying to make sure that the food that we eat isn't poisonous. McKay's on board- in fact, last Saturday when we needed to make pies (pi day!) quickly, I was tempted to buy some pre-made pie filling. However all of pre-made fillings had high fructose corn syrup. If you hadn't heard, some foods with high fructose corn syrup also have mercury. Here you can find a list of which products were found to have mercury. We've been HFCS-free for a little while, now, but it is amazing how many foods have it.
When we went HFCS-free, one of the first foods I noticed that we had to find substitutes for was jelly. At the grocery store, almost ALL the jams and jellies had HFCS- and the ones that her HFCS-free cost $4/jar. We definitely needed a substitute. Enter the dollar store.
Our dollar store is amazing. We found jelly without HFCS! (see pic!)
Our dollar store is also awesome in that they will carry organic foods. And on Tuesdays, they have 88 Cent Tuesday! It's quite the deal.
So, try the dollar stores. You might be surprised at what you can find. Dollar stores work for me.
