    Don't you hate it when....

    You buy a food item which appears for all intents and purposes to be Grok friendly, only to casually read the ingredients whilst scarfing said 'primal' food and gasp in horror at what they put in it?

    I purchased 3 tubs of cottage cheese yesterday for my breakfasts. Today I decided to eat the one with pineapple (I normally eat plain but fancied a bit of a change)....munching away only to read added Sugar?!?! WTF? why would you add sugar? is natural milk curd and diced fruit not good enough?

    Why would you add sugar - cos most of the westen world is addicted to sugar and can't tast food properly unless it is sweetened, and pinapple clearly isn't sweet enough by it's self.

    Or when you buy something that you've bought before, and halfway through discover they've changed the ingredients .... specifically to add sugar!

    I usually read labels unless I feel it's unnecessary. I ate a couple of pots of 'natural' goats yoghurt without checking the ingredients. When I looked at the nutrition label I saw that fiber was listed. I was like WTF? When I checked the ingredients I found out that corn starch had been added.

    Unfortunately when I am doing a shop for a non primal family and me, I don't have time to read labels, as I hate food shopping I am in and out as quickly as possible. I guess if I am going to change my 'usual' list I need to make an effort to read labels

    I found the Sainsbury’s online grocery shop quite helpful. E.g. for the "be good to yourself" pineapple cottage cheese it does not only give you the contents but also a complete breakdown in proteins, fat and carbs, and fibres.
    Whilst I prefer do my shopping at the shops I use this as a resource tool quite a lot and my eyes also thank me for that as the nutrition labels are in general rather ridiculously tiny

    Call me crazy, but I don't buy anything that has labels or ingredients. These things are NOT Primal.

    If it comes in a tub or a box or a sealed bag...don't eat it!
    If it has more than one ingredient...don't eat it!

    Yep, guilty.
    As I'm new to all of this, it's definitely a learning process. I learned really quickly that "organic" means F-all as far as quality and ingredients.
