This post IS about eating real. Using common sense.
Just yesterday a sales rep came to me with "organic" "all-natural" "healthy" pre and post workout bars, shake mixes and teas. A quick glance at the label proved that that all of his claims were not correct. Sugar and fake sugars make up the bulk of the products. The rest is ingredients made in a lab.
If you don't know what it is or if you can't pronounce it, don't buy it.
If there is more than 5-10 ingredients that is probably a red flag, too. Unless you are buying ratatoulle or trail mix ;)
I just love how the universe works sometimes. Just as I was having a fed-up experience with food and product labeling, I received an email from my blog buddy Katherine.
