Boy the authors are so right about needing to read ALL LABELS. I have found added sugar in places I would never have dreamed would have it: dill pickles and sauerkraut (both Claussens brand), lemon pepper seasoning, not to mention places where's there's no earthly need for it like tomato sauce. The sugar industry really has it's claws in us. I once saw a chart showing sugar consumption in the US. It was basically a low flat line for a hundred years and then in 1941 it suddenly shot up to the top of the chart. Not sure what happened at that time but it was definitely a turning point.
I am on day 3 and focusing on reading ingredient labels. I got excited when I heard about the Kirkland Low Sodium bacon being compliant so I decided to go check it out. Sadly, it has maltodextrose in it. I did get the Aidell's chicken apple sausages, and they also have a compliant deli slice option! And the frozen tilapia loins - ingredients: fish. Unless you go to a farm, or to a natural foods store (not Whole Foods) it is not often you will find compliant bacon. I had to spend $8 for half a pound at a meat shop. Other finds at Costco: bagged greens, Pellegrino water and Good Earth tea 4-pack. On to the next 27 days.
