I believe everything in life is about moderation. It's okay to indulge in that piece of cake or ice cream once in awhile, but when it becomes a habit, that's when we get in trouble. So if you were to have a lesser quality shake once in a while, then it's not going to be the end of the world. BUT if you're consuming that shake daily or even a few times a week, that is when I believe QUALITY MATTERS.
As my readers know, I have a very specific and sensitive diet. 95% of the food I consume is organic, non-GMO, grass-fed meat, grass-fed dairy, pastured-raised organic chicken, and wild caught fish. I won't touch factory farms and I certainly won't touch conventional dairy.
The goal of this blog post is to empower you as the consumer. Until I became properly educated 3 years ago, I didn't know what to look for on a nutrition label. As a consumer I feel that it is frustrating to decipher nutrition labels, and unfortunately what I have found is that reading the label isn't enough any more. I have learned if you want to know the TRUE quality of ingredients in your products, you have to call the manufacture to confirm and understand where their food is sourced from. I challenge you to do the same, and to take a stance on impacting the quality of food that is fed to our nation.
