boxerkate_04 Posted June 22, 2012 Share Posted June 22, 2012 Help! My husband and I are on day 5 and we are majorly struggling when buying groceries and making diverse meals. We are both somewhat picky eaters as far as veggies are concerned and have had some form of onions, peppers and chicken or onions, peppers and beef all week. Every time we go to the store I get completely overwhelmed with the ingredients on the back. The book and tools always refer to reading the ingredients, but there are so many that I am not able to identify whether it's okay or not. I get the concept of little to no ingredients, but need to know how/when to make exceptions. For example, last night at Trader Joe's he picked up some bacon and it had dextrose in there. So I looked it up on my phone and it's from grape sugar - that's not okay right? Also, we've been eating PERDUEÂ® Hot Italian Chicken Sausage in the morning with eggs - it says it has less than 2% of a few things, one being sugar- is this acceptable? My main question is - what IS okay to be in sausage, bacon, beef broth, sauces, spices etc.? I wish I had a list of all these ingredients and if they're okay or not. We want to follow this program we are getting burnt out fast because I seem to be eliminating almost everything I see in the stores. We have a Trader Joe's and Kroger local here. We have a couple small farmer markets that sell select fruits and vegetables. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
