Think about the last time you bought meat from the grocery store. There’s a lot of choices, right?! And SO MANY LABELS. What do they all mean??

As a registered dietitian, I often have to bite my tongue when I’m at the store and see someone struggling with a food label or package, trying to decipher what it all means. But sometimes, I can’t help myself and have to offer some unsolicited advice.

Like a couple weeks ago, I was in the deli section. I needed to grab some cheese and a package of Teton Waters Ranch Thuringer Sausage. But right before I turned around to head back to the front of the store and check out, I noticed the lady beside me.

She had two packages of sausages in her hand, and looked completely confused. I could tell she was trying to figure out which one to buy. And who can blame her? There are so many labels slapped on different food products these days, and I often forget not everyone knows what they mean. Us dietitians, live in our own little nutrition-nerd world sometimes.
