Do you get confused while poring over labels at the grocery store, trying to determine the healthiest options? What makes one box of cereal better for you than another, and how are we supposed to decipher the extensive lists of mysterious ingredients on every package, and then determine whether they are safe or toxic to your family's health? With nearly 40,000 items populating the average supermarket today, the Rich Food Poor Food - Grocery Purchasing System (GPS), is a unique guide that steers the consumer through the grocery store aisles, directing them to health enhancing Rich Food options while avoiding health detracting Poor Food ones.

Rich Food, Poor Food is unique in the grocery store guide arena in that rather than rating a particular food using calories, sodium, or fat as the main criteria, it identifies the products that contain wholesome, micronutrient-rich ingredients that health-conscious shoppers are looking for, like wild caught fish, grass-fed beef, raw/organic cheese, organic meats, pastured eggs and dairy, organic produce and sprouted grains, nuts and seeds, while avoiding over 150 common unwanted Poor Food ingredients such as sugar, high fructose corn syrup, refined flour, GMOs, MSG, artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, pesticides, nitrites/ nitrates, gluten, and chemical preservatives like BHA and BHT.

So while other food swapping grocery guides may give the green light to eating Kellogg's Fruit Loops with Sprinkles, Oscar Mayer Turkey Bologna and Hostess Twinkies based on their lower calories, sodium, and/or fat levels, you won't find these heavily processed, food-like products identified as Rich Food choices in Rich Food, Poor Food. That doesn't mean this guide to micronutrient-sufficient living leads readers to a boring culinary lifestyle. Quite the contrary! The Caltons offer Rich Food choices in every aisle of the store including desserts, snacks, sauces, hot dogs, and other fun foods!

This indispensable grocery store guide raises the bar on food quality as it takes readers on an aisle-by-aisle tour, teaching them how to identify potentially problematic ingredients, while sharing tips on how to lock in a food's nutritional value during preservation and preparation, save money, and make homemade versions of favorite grocery store staples. Regardless of age, dietary preference or current health, Rich Food, Poor Food turns the grocery store and farmer's market into a micronutrient pharmacy--filling the shopping cart with a natural prescription for better health and longevity.

Remember, while all yogurts are made with those two strands of live cultures, many don’t survive the heat treatments. Don’t let the manufacturers fool you with “made with live active cultures,” or by putting them in the ingredient list. They may have started out there, but you can only be sure they survived by checking the labels for the words “contains active cultures, active yogurt cultures, or living yogurt cultures.” Many larger companies actually perform testing and proudly display the

Did you know that many of these areas stock a large assortment of rBGH-free cheeses? You may not, because many of them aren’t labeled as such. You should also know that all cheese that comes from Canada or the European Union is automatically rBGH free, due to their ban on this hormone. Don’t forget the

contaminants. Pole-caught fish are typically in better, tastier condition than their mass-caught rivals because they do not get battered and bruised in nets, nor do they die at sea hours before returning to port, as does tuna caught with long lines (a method of deep water, unsustainable fishing that should be avoided). Next, you will have to decide which type of canned tuna to put in your cart: white or light, which has slightly darker shading that white tuna. For light tuna, favor tongol or

It’s too bad that all of our due diligence shopping the store’s perimeter thus far to stock up on the most micronutrient-rich foods can be sabotaged simply with a few condiment criminals lurking in this aisle. Adding a dab or a dollop of an inferior product will bring the good stuff down with it. What is really unfortunate is these condiments were once innocent—that is, before manufacturers destroyed them.
