Confused at the grocery store?
Friday, November 16, 2012
With all the chemicals and stuff we are left to sort through when shopping for healthy foods for ourselves and families, the task can be very challenging.
If you are a smartphone user, I highly recommend the FOODUCATE APP. It does a pretty good job helping at the store. It is even working on creating database information on GMO products.
Www.fooducate.com is awesome too! Discovered that after the app. It's very easy to use!
Another website I get daily email from, that is often helpful is www.greatist.com some days I just delete without reading, but other days they have great information. One of the things I really like about their info is an extensive works cited at the end of each article.
Here is the one I got today. It is helping decipher through the labels on food products.
The list of ingredients I try to avoid:
ALL artificial sweeteners
High fructose corn syrup
MSG (tricky, because it has 13-14 names - some seeming to be good for you.)
There are others I try to limit as well.. But those are my biggest.
What do you look for when reading nutrition labels?
