I’m going to walk you through how to make a shopping list sustainble & healthy at the same time!
Once you get this right, this will be another clear passage way in your mind, another thing to not worry about…
I hope this brings you clarity.
How To Read The Labels 101
If you’re buying actual food, that is fresh, no packaging and so on, then you don’t need to, as you will know there is no label,as there is no need for one!
That is what comes with true wealth, which is your health, what makes your body better, and is good for you tends not to have a food label to read at the back.
For everything else then, you need to be aware say you look at product X, the first three
ingredients that they list at the top, is what the manufacturer used a lot of…
That’s the first three ingredients are the main things in the product, that’s why
they are at the top, and have to do this by law.
So if you see things like sugar, salt & refined grains, that’s a three way
you don’t want to end up on, you should then put the product down as it’s
no good for you.
Also truely healthy ingredients that have labels, are not very long, it’s simple foods, if it’s got words you
don’t know, really long, it tends not to be good 90 percent of the time, depending on you knowledge with food.
Two or three lines max to explain what is in it, just like if you were asked what’s in your meal that you was eating,and your waitor just errr, ahhh & rambels on and on, this is a red flag!
This would suggest that it’s highly processed food, or lab food, the reason why you struggle to read the labels is for that reason, not that you’re stupid.
Now I’m using the example that most of you eat in the mornings which is cereal right ?
If we use the colour coding as an example, half of these would be fit for the bin as they hit the reds
with their sugar content, coco puffs and all that is not healthy at all and will give you a sugar spike and crash.
If it’s showing you high sugar, or like cornflakes high salt count, then you must not purchase them.
So what are you looking for in your breakfast ?
Fiber & Protein!
Now you’re not going to get protein like that from the cereals, this is why it’s always best to eat fresh food,as it gives you everything you need over cereals.
However for cereals, you need to be focused on fiber, and they have a load of them that are high in fiber.
The reason why I say that is the fact that, you need this as it keeps you fuller for longer.
You will always feel hungry if you are used to eating sugar, as you get your spike and then you crash!
and need more food, thus you overeat and feel like crap.
So Porrige is very high in fiber for example, this is the proper porrige not instant porrige that is high
in sugar, infact if you check the labels you will see that, stay away from all this instant and quick this an that it’s all a scam!
If you top this off with some water & not drink coffee, tea & fruit juices you are doing what the 95 percent of the world is not doing, which is taking care of their bodies and treating their body like a temple that it is.
Let me know if this helped you please… Ciao for now 🙂
