Cherish your body
By Mary Friedel-Hunt

I decided that it is time for me to shed a few pounds and clean up my diet so I am counting carbohydrates. It is a start. As I shopped for food this week, I was shocked to see how many high carbohydrate foods fill the shelves. I consider myself well informed about good nutritious food. I know Americans are sugar-dependent but I lost sight of just how much sugar we eat.
As I walked the aisles searching for low carb foods, I was reminded that healthy foods are around the periphery of the grocery stores. Certainly there are healthy foods in the aisles — oatmeal, nuts and seeds are among some of the good foods in the aisles. But as I walked each aisle, picking up foods here and there, I saw mostly high-carb and/or high-fat processed foods.
