Yes indeed those marketing people are SO tricky!! "Market Fresh"... sounds healthy. And the places that promote "Low Fat"... which does NOT mean they haven't jacked the carbs up sky-high, to make up for the lack of fat. And it seems like every restaurant uses a ton more salt in their recipes, than I ever use at home. Eating out always makes me thirsty.
sigh. I think a lot of us are just like you, and found out the hard way that what sounds like it'd be okay, or looks like it's not *that* much food, is really something different when you get the nutritional info on it.
No big deal. One of those "live and learn" things. I try to remember to grab some stuff before I leave the house-- piece of fruit, single serve size of nuts, a water. Maybe a protein bar if I've got any. Just something to keep me from needing to stop anywhere for food. Even if I don't think I'll be gone that long.... you just never know.
