Where Trans Fats Typically Hide

Although trans fats are much less common in processed foods than in years past, they still haunt our food supply. Here are the foods that most commonly contain them. Many are kids’ favorites—so beware!

  • Frozen pizzas
  • Cookies
  • Pie Crusts
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Stick margarine
  • Cake mixes and frostings
  • Pancake and waffle mixes
  • Frozen dinners
  • Refrigerated and frozen desserts
  • Refrigerated biscuits and pastry dough
  • Frozen breaded fish and chicken products

If you plan to purchase any of these foods, be sure to scan the “Nutrition Facts” box and ingredients list to be sure no trans fats are present.

Are you ready to get healthy for the summer ahead?

It may be just what you need.

From a recent retreat attendee:

“Thank you so much Dr. Ann! It was an awesome experience, especially your garden and cooking with you in your own kitchen. You did a great job during the info sessions of packing in a lot of material without overwhelming…I learned a lot about better ways to present material to my patients. I have even more confidence moving forward about the information I am giving out knowing that an M.D. like you wholeheartedly believes in, practices, and preaches the same…I have already read through all of the books and materials you gave us haha. You do a great job of explaining difficult and complex science in a way that people can understand, but also then take the more important step of applying it day to day. Those “Secrets” to success are absolutely KEY and I plan on showing that YouTube clip in my class along with Peggy’s story…So thankful my mom signed us up for this and would recommend that anyone trying to optimize their health make every effort to sign up too!” –Christie G
