Most grocery stores are laid out so that outside aisles contain the produce, meat, and dairy items and the inside aisles are filled with all the processed/convenience offerings.
It’s taken me a long time to change my eating habits but I’ve come to learn to suspect any food with an ingredient list as likely not only a poor value, but nutritionally poor as well. Now, I’m not a complete purist in this regard and will venture into the inside aisles to pick up peanut butter.
I came across this 2015 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s consumer show, Marketplace, video that I think does a good job of giving consumers a balanced perspective about the nutritional and marketing claims made on food labels.
As people with diabetes, if we want to maintain our health, we need to be extra vigilant about how we feed ourselves.
Which aisles of the grocery store do you primarily shop?
Does the marketing label claims of the food industry as portrayed in the CBC video bother you?
