Grocery shopping the right way
There are 5 important rules to make sure you are grocery shopping the healthy way! Rule number 1: Buy as must fresh food as possible. This is one of the easiest rules to follow. If your food come in boxes and cans there is no way it can be fresher then the food coming from the farm and the fields. Pick the fresh vegetables fruits, seafood, juices and dairy. Rule number 2: Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. That is where all the fresh foods are located. The less you get sucked into the central isles the healthier your cart will be. Rule number 3: Try and think of the departments as separate stores. For example dairy, produce, meat and so forth. Target specific sections to browse through and steer clear of the dangerous sections (candy, ice-cream, potato chip aisles). Rule number 4: Shop with a grocery list. Organize your list based on the list above. Start by sectioning off the store by departments. This will not only make sure you are shopping healthy but it will save time and get you in and out as quick as possible. be prepared and think through your meal preparation for the entire week. Breakfast, lunch and dinner along with healthy snacks should all be included on your list. Rule number 5: Do not shop when you are hungry. Try and make sure you shop on a full stomach, this will make you less vulnerable to buying all those unhealthy unnecessary snacks!
