A guide to reading supermarket labels

Daily Staff ReportVail, CO, Colorado

Low-fat and organic and cage free, oh my! Have you ever wished your journey through the aisles at the grocery store was as easy as clicking your heels three times and your cart would fill with healthy, wholesome, enticing food? De-mystify your next trip to the grocery store by tapping into the wisdom of Kimberly Lord Stewart on Tuesday. The Vail Symposium and The Bookworm of Edwards will co-host a talk and booksigning for Stewarts new book, Eating Between the Lines: The Supermarket Shoppers Guide to the Truth Behind Food Labels at The Bookworm of Edwards in Riverwalk. In the introduction to her book, Stewart sets the tone for what is to follow: Right now the only way for anyone to understand all the labels in the grocery store is to call the manufacturer, read their literature and press kits perhaps snoop around their facility, spend hours searching the Internet, or review very boring government reports. Eating Between The Lines does all of that for you. The truth, it seems, is that some pf these very labels are designed to mislead us.Stewart is the editor-in-chief of Dining Out magazine and a columnist for Natural Home Magazine. She has received two Association of Food Journalism Awards and regularly contributes to Eating Well, Vegetarian Times, European Homes & Gardens, Delicious Living, Alternative Health and other publications.
