Not everyone loves grocery shopping but it needs to happen, the more often the better.  Here are some tips to make your trip a healthier one:

  • Eat prior to shopping, you’ll be less likely to make poor decisions.

  • Shop on the perimeter of the store, the middle is where the highly processed foods sit.

  • Use a list and stick to it.

  • Read labels (ingredients listed first make up the largest content).

  • Buy perishable food items, the shorter the shelf life the healthier.

  • Buy fruits and vegetables, preferably fresh, but frozen and canned are good alternatives.

  • Leave the pop, chips, fruit juice, and light breads for those less informed!

Remember . . . If you don’t buy it you can’t eat it!
