I bought the bottle of juice because I’m trying to include healthier options in our refrigerator. The combination of flavors was one of my favorites and it was a thicker blend more like a smoothy.
Not until I’d drank several servings did I look at the ingredient list. I’m sure I heard some sort of music of doom when I saw it: 28% sugar
So shoot me because I didn’t care.
These days you can’t go into a restaurant without reading the calories of each item. Whose idea was it to include things I didn’t want to know?
When you know better you do better. At least that’s the hope. And, yes, I have made different menu choices because of this added information.
At times, I’ve also avoided digging deeper for information because I didn’t want the accountability. Or, I don’t want to invest more emotionally.
We have choices. We can be the ostrich with its head in the sand oblivious to what is going on around us. OR, we can be informed. The danger is, information might make you care. And caring is tiring and burdensome. To paraphrase Mother Teresa, care anyway.
What do you choose?
