You Are What You Eat: A guide to navigating the grocery store aisles

I don’t know about you, but I used to walk into grocery stores and be overwhelmed by all the options. All the products available had labels such as “fat free”, “sugar free”, “organic”, “free range”, etc. As I started researching the meanings behind such labels, I became more aware of how many of these labels are misleading and essentially mean nothing. Therefore, I learned to never believe the front of packages and started looking at the contents and the nutrition facts instead. This video tries to help you understand what different labels mean and how to make the healthiest food choices.
