Please understand that prior to 8 months ago, I didn't read or care about nutrition labels. That's what makes the following situation all the more funny to me...
I went grocery shopping this morning, and another shopper and I struck up a conversation while waiting to get a price check. Well, I pointed out the high percentage in the hamburger after she asked me about another package of Angus ground beef. The package she held up was 14 percent fat, as opposed to the other package that was a whopping 43 percent fat!!! By now, we had a small circle of interested people around us and another woman pulled me aside and thanked me for pointing that out. And said that she's now a better shopper because of that.
Well, you know, maybe I wasn't the only person who didn't pay attention to labels. And now that I do, whenever I can answer someone's question, I'm always amazed that I know the answer! (smiling) However, there is soooo much more to learn and I am a slow student when it comes to changing lifelong eating patterns. But I am determine to put one foot in front of the other and keep on keeping on.
