Nutrition labels are packed with valuable information, but can also be incredibly overwhelming. Let's break it down! In part one of this two part series I am diving into what ingredients to watch for, along with discussing what sort of foods you shouldn't even bother to look at the label for (seriously, that's a thing).
I've developed a 3 step system to determine if something should hop into your grocery cart:
Step 1: Consider how frequently you are eating the food (and if you should even bother checking the label)
Step 2: Investigate the ingredients
This episode offers a deep dive on all of the following ingredients to keep your eyes peeled for and why:
Artificial Food Coloring
Sodium Nitrite + Nitrate
High Fructose Corn Syrup
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
Artificial Trans Fats
Low Quality Oils
Step 3: Make sure the macros measure up
Tune into part two to understand how the macros measure up for your specific goals!
