Conquering the Grocery Store

Grocery stores can be a confusing and even intimidating place, especially when one is trying to eat healthy! Think about it, every time we walk in the store, we are faced with hundreds of choices. Here are some tips to help you get in and out quickly and conquer the grocery store:

     Make a list - this saves time and eliminates temptation

     Never shop when you’re hungry - you’ll be less likely to make impulse decisions

     Make sure your cart is colorful - load up on fruits and veggies (fresh or frozen)

     Choose whole foods over processed foods

     Read food labels - generally the less ingredients it contains, the better (5 or less is optimal)
