Ice cream is a high-fat, high-calorie, high-sugar food that is often consumed after a meal that adds extra calories to your day.

Pastries, donuts, and cookies are common treats found in many households.

Some oftentimes contain an excessive amount of salt and added sugars. 

So many of the most delicious snack foods—especially during football season—are processed meats. 

Processed Meats
