Beware of Food Dyes

Over a year ago, I remember our real estate agent telling us of how red dye in food products had awful effects on his young son, and both my husband and I were baffled that food dyes would be the cause. Last night, I read this article aloud to my husband about the dangers of food dyes and how they're found in so many of our American staples, like Mac 'n Cheese or breakfast cereals. And while we're not doing the 100% organic, because I can't get our budget wrapped around it, I'm leaning more and more in that direction. If you have time, read the article.


  1. I never new all the complications food dyes have. I try to cook all natural but sometimes life does not let me. My daughter has asthma and allergies and after reading the article I am going to be a lot more careful.

    Found your blog on Nestworks and I am a new follower.

  2. I have heard the same thing about red food dye. I am the same as you I find organic foods to be expensive.
