Don’t be Tricked by Marketing and Labels

I have been trying to eat Keto or at least low carb for a few months now and have realized that reading labels is a must!

I was going through the grocery store the other day and my husband texted me asking for some ice cream (we don’t normally have this at our house). I thought that it would be ok if we had some ice cream for a change. I figured that I would get the kind that is made from avocodos so it would be lower in carbs and get him his favorite death by chocolate which obviously would have more carbs.

Notice the total carbs and the price 31.1¢ per ounce.

Boy was I wrong!

Notice the total carbs and the price 8.5¢ per ounce.

Granted, the total fat is 4 grams different but overall, it doesn’t make sense to me.

Moral of the story…

Read the labels or better yet, don’t by foods that have labels.

  1. Yesterday I was looking at packets of dried fruit such as sultanas, raisins and current. On the front of the packet it clearly read ‘no artificial flavours or preservatives ‘. On the back of the packet the ingredients included 220 which is a sulphate….deadly stuff….Gives my daughter instant migraines.

  2. Often yoghurt & custards are the same or yoghurt has more calories.
    We tend to look at ingredients first then I will buy the ingredients substitute where I have to & make it myself, rather than following kJ, carbs & fats we try make our own everything where ever possible. Its a tricky world we live in.
