KEY WORDS: LOW-FAT

Good words in the dairy sectionbut not necessarily words that signal a nutritional advantage otherwise. Your goal is to moderate fat intake.

Fat-free? Why go there? Many fat-free products are loaded with sugar or refined carbs. And remember that good plant fats like olive, canola, soybean, corn, sesame, sunflower, or peanut oil can help you feel more satisfied with your meals.

KEY WORDS: PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS

These are trans fat tip-off words (see here). Trans fats lurk in large amounts in vegetable shortening, stick (hard) margarine, pound cake, and microwave popcorn. Okay occasionally, but try to minimize these.

Check the ingredients lists (see here).

THE CORNER STORE

Don’t have access to a supermarket? Not everybody does. If your neighborhood convenience store or corner market is the only store close to where you live, you can shop there for nutritious food.

ADVOCATE!

If you don’t find the foods you want, ask the storekeepers to start stocking them. Speak up. Let them know there is a demand!
