Read It Before You Eat It

There is a wealth of information on food labels, but most people have no idea that products labeled “trans fat free” can contain trans fats or that “all natural” is essentially a misleading phrase.

My book, Read It Before You Eat It (Plume 2010) will clear up the confusion by showing you how to make sense of the labels and sidestep tricky marketing ploys. Then I’ll walk you through a typical grocery store and point out the best food choices to make in every aisle.

Let’s go shopping together!

You won’t want to leave home without it!

Why Buy It?

  • Which foods help and which harm?
  • Can you trust the labels on your food?
  • What do all the numbers on the Nutrition Facts Panel mean?
  • How can you get the most out of your money when buying food for your family?
  • How can you shop smart, shop fast, and shop with confidence?

Read It Before You Eat It will help you find the answers to these questions and so much more…
