How to shop for great tasting healthy food!

When you decide to eat healthy, the thought of shopping for healthy foods can be intimidating; it doesn’t have to be if you follow a few simple rules!

  • *Shop the perimeter of the store – produce, meat, fish and dairy departments contain a plethora of healthy foods. Items on the shelves in the middle of the store contain the chemicals, preservatives and high sodium items that can be very bad for your health.
  • *Plan your weekly meals before you go shopping – create your shopping list from your menu and stick to it! You’ll be tempted to purchase impulse items, resist the urge, you’ll be glad you did.
  • *If you have to purchase something that is boxed, read the ingredients and the nutritional information. Choose an item that has the lowest sodium, fat, carbs and calories.
  • *Remember that nutritional information on packages is per serving; to get the amount in the full package, you need to multiply the nutritional amount by the amount of servings in the package. Sometimes, these numbers are staggering.

Shopping for healthy foods doesn’t mean that you have to ‘break the bank’ every week; you can plan your menu from the grocery flyers you receive in the mail each week. Take advantage of sales and use coupons when it’s possible, this will save you a lot of money.

Homemade foods are the healthiest for your family; you control the ingredients going into it and the nutritional value incredible. You may not think that you have time to prepare food; ‘you’re tired after working all day, you want to relax, and you have too many other things to do…’ and the list of excuses goes on.

Many people think that preparing a healthy meal means slaving over a hot stove for hours; nothing could be further from the truth; preparing a healthy meal takes less time because you are using fewer ingredients and you can do a lot of the prep work before hand.

By using kitchen gadgets such as a crockpot, you eliminate virtually all of the work. You can add chicken and veggies while your coffee is brewing and it slow cooks all day and is ready when you get home. How easy is that?
