The importance of reading food labels isn’t a new topic. It’s always a good idea to be informed and know what you are putting into your body. Overall, I feel like I have a handle on what I put in my shopping cart, but last week I had a wake up call. I took the lazy route and placed a carton of strawberry Greek yogurt in my cart without reading the label. I mean, it had all the healthy buzz words on it – so it must be good for you. Right?! Oh, how wrong I was. I was blown away by the amount of sugar packed into one serving!
Luckily, it only takes a bit more effort to transform plain Greek yogurt into a delicious berry bowl. I admit, it’s not as simple as tearing off a yogurt lid, but in the end it’s significantly more delicious. Plus, with a few glass containers you can divide out single servings to grab and take with you to work. Just proof that homemade can still be convenient!
