Do you ever feel like when you read a book it was written just for you? I feel that way about my newest read called, Eating Between the Lines: The Supermarket Shopper’s Guide to the Truth Behind Food Labels. The book was sent to me via one of my Tweeps, Annie’s Homegrown. It couldn’t have been better timing.
I strive each day to make healthy choices for my family to consume. It can get a bit confusing along the way with all of the labels promising to be healthier than the next. Do I buy organic, all-natural, vegetarian, free-range, grass fed, or just bite the bullet and buy what’s on sale? You really have to go above and beyond these days to fully understand what you are fueling your body with.
Kimberly writes gets right to the point and even has great charts along the way to take with you to the supermarket/farmers market to help you stay on track and not get overwhelmed. I think that’s part of my problem. I stand in the isle reading labels and trying to remember the latest, healthiest article I just read. I don’t want to keep up with all the latest fads, I just want to know what’s healthy and I’ll eat that way.

This morning I had a cup of American Classic Tea, from Charleston Tea Plantation. Surprisingly, this is the only tea plantation in America and is located in the Lowcountry near historic Charleston, South Carolina. I’ll be daydreaming about walking through the plantation with Spanish moss overhead and sipping on tea the rest of the day.

P.S. I have fun ideas rolling around in my head for a fun giveaway with EBTL and maybe even a recipe exchange…
