You know when you look up in a grocery store, they will have signs that direct you to where the coffee, flour and cereal are, right?
Well, in a store about an hour from me, I found the most amazing signs….”Nutritional Food”, “Natural Cereal” and “Nutritional Drink”. This is a chain supermarket (and I’ll leave them un-named).
While I don’t have to tell you that not all food is healthy, the fact that the grocer is now advertising this is telling.
Truly… it’s time for the consumer to beware. If you are looking for foods that are nutritional, make sure you are in the correct aisles.
Seriously though, learn to read the labels and check them for any products you buy. As much as possible, purchase plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables (no labels unless they say “organic”).
Of course, avoid prepared foods, excessive carbs/starches, soda and sweets, or if you have to get them…make it the smallest amount you can. As always…fresh is likely better. I never heard of anyone going wrong with vegetables.
While food shopping can seem confusing, it seems stores such as the one I visited want to make it as easy as possible for consumers. I hope your local store has nutritional food as well.
