Food Label Reading Lesson

Food Label ReadingFood label reading can help you make healthy food choices.

For instance, last weekend I went hiking and the Fall color was astonishing.

I went along for about two hours at a brisk pace enjoying the fresh air.

Much of my exercise is teaching fitness classes and creating new routines for exercise DVDs. So, it was refreshing to just free my mind, move my body and drink in all those trees dressed in red, yellow, orange mixed with green. Sometimes its good to mix up your exercise routine. I felt renewed breathing in all that fresh air and being surrounded by fabulous color.

When I finished my hike we went into a little country food market because we were starting to get thirsty and hungry.

So cute with all those red and white checkered tabletops filled with fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade jams, honey, maple syrup and cider. I spotted a bottle that said “Fresh Apple Cider” thinking how fresh it would taste, this being apple season and all. I continued my walk and I’d gotten a considerable distance from the store when I decided it was time for swig of cider. As I was about to sip, I glanced on the back of the bottle to read the food label expecting to see APPLES. But instead it read

Food Label Reading

APPLES, and Potassium sorbate, a preservative.

I wanted to throw that cider against a wall!

I was thirty so I drank a little and whether it was in my mind or not, it seemed to taste not as fresh as I imagined it would. So the lesson here, is just because you are in an adorable country market, don’t take for granted that all the foods will be fresh and adorable too.

So caveat emptor: let the buyer beware!
