Lurking at Labels

Hi Friendlies!! Adding to my post earlier this week on grapples I’ve been inspired to talk about…grocery shopping. I know, I know. It’s not the most inspiring thing in the world, but it’s a necessity. And it’s a necessity to pay attention to what we are buying (because it will eventually go in our mouths!), so I’d like to shed some light on it!

Tonight on the HeyMonicaB Radio Show I’m going to be talking about what’s in our food. It’s pretty easy to make smart choices if we know what we’re looking for. In a nutshell, the least amount of ingredients, the better!! See the Lara Bar photo below. THREE ingredients! Yumm!!

Now! Check out the ever popular Power Bar below. Do you SEE (well, it’s a blurry phone photo, but you know what I mean) aaaallll those ingredients!? Why? Why do we need all those additives, preservatives and fillers!? We don’t!!

Together we’ll talk about how to choose foods wisely even if we can’t get to a “health food” store. I find “health food store” kind of ironic…because why should we have to go to a special store to get “healthy” food? Shouldn’t all grocery stores be healthy? Anyway, I’m not an expert in this area of food labeling and nutrition but I definitely have some tips to fill our lives with better food. Also, because I’m not an expert I see am able to see through the eyes of YOU and the majority of America. I make the best choices possible to work around the crappy foods. Yeah…I got some stuff to say tonight and I welcome your comments and questions. If you are an expert I’d love to hear some of your ideas too!!

If you miss it, I’ll attach the archives to this post so you can listen later :) XOXO!

    Such a good point! ‘Health Food Store’ conjures images of hippies and tofu, doesn’t it? When, in fact, every store that sells food ought to be a safe haven for shoppers where we can put faith in the products.

    Ah, well. It’s a dream I have….

    i agree! *and* actually ate a banana bread larabar today for a snack– they’re my fave {well, really i like all of them, but you know what i mean, right?}! :) i totally agree with label reading. i am so thankful for Trader Joe’s and other natural/whole food markets that stock their shelves w/real, simple food. it makes such a difference in the way i feel and look! :)
