I know all processed food is not great for you. But how can you tell by looking at label which is OK or natural, salt or good sugar or carbs?

In brief: Healthy Diet!

Google 'food pyramid' and 'DASH' to learn about healthy diets.
Generally, try to eat more proteins and less carbohydrates & fats while maintaining portion control and remaining physically active. Salad dressings can convert a healthy food into an item loaded with fat & salt, so always ask for the dressing on the side and dip your fork in it, rather than drowning the salad with it.
