Step 1: Learn How to Read Labels

Our journey to real food has officially commenced! If you are unsure what this video series is about, I encourage you to check out the introduction video here.

Step 1: Learn How to Read Labels

Out of all the possible things there are to learn about real food, I believe learning how to read labels is the most important one of them all. And I’m not talking about the nutrition facts. In the video today, I’m sharing my 3 best tips to help you read labels with ease.

In the video, I mentioned I did not want to go into specific details about GMOs because it can literally be discussed for hours on end. If you want literature that is easy-to-read and enticing, you’ll want to check out my eBook, Unraveling GMOs. Whether you are a newbie to GMOs or an avid activist, Unraveling GMOs gets the job done on educating and inspiring.

As promised, here are a few links I think will help you have a better understanding of what GMOs are and why they are so controversial. The first link I’ve provided is the list of derivatives (or hidden sources) of GMOs — make sure you check that one out first so you know what to look for.
