POD: The Importance of Reading Labels

Tonight I ran out to the Real Canadian Supper store to pick up a few thing. It’s a bit out-of-the-way but we needed Sun Butter and we haven’t seen it in any of the closer super markets. So I found myself walking down the organic aisle looking at the different spreads. They had organic peanut […]
