Surely in this big world that we live in, filled with
so much technology, there is another way!!
Another way to grocery shop, without having to read
every single label....but yet, benefit from the most nutritious
items...I guess we just need to go FRESH.
While being on this fast, I have learned so very much about the contents in the foods that I normally purchase without giving it a thought.....Take sugar for example....It is very difficult to find anything that does not contain SUGAR.
The label may not read Sugar....but there are plenty of other words like fructose, cane syrup, corn syrup, syrup, etc, etc, etc. that are the tell tell signs that our diet is full of sugars!
And how about Sodium.....Salt if you will!
Just take a look at this label...310 mg of sodium and this is
just from one can. The fast that we are on calls for "Sea Salt"
only. This limits a whole lot of foods!
No Salt, No Sugar!!
There it is....Corn syrup! Of course, we all know that the sweeteners are what makes all this food so tasty!
Honestly speaking....having to stop and read labels is very annoying for me....I do want to cook healthy, but I am just like most of you....I don't have time to spend three hours at the grocery store...
We are eating healthier right now and we are doing without all those sugars and salts....Sam and I both feel better, but it definitely requires a lot of work to eat right. Just take for example...I have been drinking coconut milk this past week...
This is something that I would never have thought of doing before we started this fast. And, I must say it is very good!!
I want my approach to food to become more about the benefits, rather than the taste.
Are you a label reader? Do you have a better way of feeding your family healthy foods? I'd love to hear about them....
Have a Blessed Day...
