One of the most common questions that I get from my readers is how to EASILY know what to avoid when it comes to what to put in their shopping cart for their families.  The reality is that the food industry purposely makes it very difficult for us to be educated consumers.  After all, how are they supposed to constantly increase profit margins by continually adding less expensive, sub standard ingredients into our food supply if we are educated on what to look for?
