Food Frauds from Frugal Dad

One of the most frustrating aspects of trying to eat mindfully is the "tricky" wording used to market different products. In the past we've lamented the "not injected with hormones" label for chicken (because chickens NEVER are injected with hormones, but they do eat growth enhancing food that contains arsenic), or fat-free on a food that is laden instead with sugar. 

The tricky wording extends to the gourmet food world as well. Frugal Dad has put together a great infographic that he was kind enough to share with Our Daily Green. Our advice? Don't get caught up in labels. Keep it local and fresh. Don't get caught up in designer food names.  Find a farmer you can talk to face to face. 

Thanks, Frugal Dad for this great infographic!
