I try to avoid most processed foods, or I should say, the highly processed foods like canned soup, boxes of macaroni and cheese, frozen pizza, stuff like that. Why? Partially because they usually have a lot of saturated fat that I don't want, but the main reason is that I'm sensitive to sodium. When I get too much I get puffy eyes and my fingers and feet swell a bit. Yuck.
