ME AND JACK SPRATT

It seems like since I am older, it takes me forever to go grocery shopping. I think I am just going to stop for a few items and it shouldn’t take that much time. Wrong!

Now, since I am older, it takes me quite a while to grocery shop, as I spend more time reading labels. My husband has to watch salt and sugar intake. We both have to watch fats as well as carbs and proteins.

If I read a label on something it may be low in sugar and fat, but high in sodium. If I find a food low in sodium, nine chances out of ten, it is high in carbohydrates. It seems as if our diet and menu has evolved into chicken, turkey and fish.
