Make your own Pop Tarts

I had to share this idea with you. Why? Because this recipe struck a nerve for me. I read an article recently about foods that contain high fructose corn syrup, and PopTarts, my kids run out the door with food in fist favorite was listed on there. Yeah, I DID know they were not good for you because they are full of sugar, but that's not all. They are full of HFCS. So is Shake and Bake, Stove Top Stuffing and CapriSun juice. I wasn't surprised about the juice, but stuffing?

This is one of the best reasons that make scratch cooking the best way to feed your family. There is no processed food out there that can't be made in your own kitchen, minus the additives, chemicals and fats. I will do my best to find, try and share these recipes with you. I promise you if they are too difficult they won't be making it to this blog.

If you are interested in why high fructose syrup is considered even worse than sugar go to this site. If you want to find out what items contain HFCS try Googling "foods containing high fructose corn syrup".

Here is a really good recipe for homemade toaster pastries. I bet they freeze just fine too.  Laura’s Healthy Homemade Poptarts come from a great blog called Heavenly Homemakers. Enjoy.
