Dr. Tim Says....
There are so many different types of foods out there that make claims about being healthy.
The term "natural" is a good example of packaging that can be confusing. There is no regulation for the term "natural" and you could be purchasing a food that is made with 50% lard or is mostly sugar. The word natural doesn't mean that the food is healthy and you should assume that it is not.
One of my favorite examples is looking at some frozen vegetarian entrees. The packages are often labeled "Natural" or "Vegetarian" but they are many times full of fat, saturated fat and salt. They might be vegetarian, but they're not good for you!
Fortunately, the FDA has regulations for most terms that mandate what manufacturers can and cannot say about their products. 10 Things You Need to Know About Reading Food Labels

This recipe is low in sodium and safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users. Those who are lactose intolerant but can tolerate cheese may enjoy it. It is not gluten-free, however, and those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it as it will be too spicy.
