Eat This Not That! or That and That and That...
The other night I had a mission: go to the store and pick up a few things (some refried beans, tortillas, cheese, popcorn, milk, etc.). As I wandered through the store looking for said items, I found myself frozen. I couldn't find some of the specific items in the book - was the better popcorn to buy Jolly Pop's "Healthy Pop" or Pop Secret's "Light?" Did I want fat free refried beans or organic black beans? I tried applying some of the lessons learned from the book but started getting them all mixed up.
I felt that this was a test of my supermarket skills and I shouldv'e studied better and written better notes. But to be fair, the questions were different - none of the products I wrote down were carried by the store! In the end, I think I ended up doing ok; yes, non-organic banana's were acceptable and it was good to stay away from products with huge ingredient lists.
Next time, I'll just bring the book.This book: http://www.amazon.com/This-That-Supermar
