Good article. People should be more aware of the limitations of so called "Light" or"Healthy" labeled foods in the processed foods sections of the supermarket. It is better to stick to the outer rims of those stores, where you find fresh fruits, vegetables and meats. But - most of us do occasionally indulge in prepared dressings, soups, lunch meats, and even ice cream treats. I cannot face a tuna sandwich without a dab of mayo, and both Best Foods and Kraft's lighter version of olive oil mayonaise taste just as good as the heftier old fashioned kind, with healthier oil and less calories. That weight watcher's ice cream bar occasionally keeps my dh from stocking our freezer with gallon buckets of the stuff, from which he would dip a huge bowlful nightly. That lighter lunchmeat beats the heck out of thick sliced bologna, my dh's former choice. I still have little time to cook at lunch, tho am trying to "plan-over" remnants from dinner's entrees for that purpose more. There is some sense in making these relatively painless changes as we try to retrain ourselves to cook more at home, using less salt and no sugar.
