Check your cereals for TSP :-(

It has been brought to my attention that several cereals from General Mills such as Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch have TSP (Trisodium Phosphate) in them!!!! This is alarming. Well, I’m taken back to the days when I was “handy” and wanted to do a lot of things on my own. One of them, painting the walls. It was recommended that before I paint, clean all the surfaces with TSP. Why is it in cereal?

This is not good! I would not buy anything that contains tsp. Look at the warning label on a box of TSP:

There was guy on line that said it best. He said, “If I give my kids food and sprinkle some trisodium phosphate on it, I’m going to prison” IKR!!!! So don’t do it. Just buy something else. Plus, I don’t care what the nutritional value is, if it’s one of those sugary cereals, there are no nutritional benefits at all. Fun, YES, yummy, YES, once in a while, SURE!! Part of an everyday healthy lifestyle, not even close!! Here’s some healthier options:

oatmeal with fruit and nuts (heck, even sprinkle some brown sugar on it if you have to)

egg sandwich with turkey bacon

southwest omelette wrap


protein shake if your short on time

waffles with fruit and yogurt
