DSC00957DSC00962 I am a “label reader”!  I try to buy or make healthy snacks to have in our kitchen.  I am also trying to add more gluten free foods in my diet this year.  So, when I was at my local grocery and saw these Multigrain Quinoa Crisps, I thought “Wow, I’ll try those”!  Multigrain, check. Quinoa, check. Gluten and wheat free, check!

Well, I was in a bit of a hurry and did not pull out my “cheaters” (my trusty reading glasses).  I had the need for a snack the next day and I pulled these crisps out of the cupboard and started to munch.  They tasted “fake” and too sweet.  So I put on my reading glasses and read the ingredients.  Yikes!  Quinoa was the 6th ingredient! And some of the other ingredients were: sugar and potato starch.  Uggg!  Then I read the nutrition facts and was also surprised to see that there was only ONE gram of fiber in a serving.  How can this company get away with calling the product “multigrain” and also a “good source of fiber” on the front of the package? Buyer beware!

So, I need to practice what I preach!  Always read the label, thoroughly!  “Nuff said!  I guess I will stick to whole foods that don’t need labels!DSC00965
