I haven't actually had a bag of microwave popcorn in ages, but seeing as how the first result that comes up when googling that phrase is a food babe link, I'm not going to worry about anything in that product.

Very happy that you're enjoying the cold soups AND that you think they're helping with weight loss!! Definitely having soup ready in the fridge (cold or to be nuked in the microwave) is a mainstay for me!!

I know that I am a binge drinker...I managed to just have 2 , two days in a row so that is better.I am looking at a restart date Sept 1st. Going to do another 100 day challenge.
thank you for your note. I am a nurse and know what damage potentially can come of drinking.
