Healthy Grocery Shopping


Grocery shopping is something we all have to do, even though choosing the right foods can be very hard indeed.  To help you with your healthy grocery shopping, the tips below can indeed help make things easier than ever before:

1.  Never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach.

2.  Select canned fruits and tuna that are packed in water, not oil or syrup.

3.  Look at the labels for the words “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated”.  The earlier you see them appear on the list, the higher the amount of unhealthy trans fatty acids the food will contain.

4.  Don’t buy turkey with the skin on it, and if you plan to buy chicken – buy a chicken breast meal.

5.  When you select frozen dinners, select those that are not only low in fat but low in sodium and cholesterol as well.

6.  If you aren’t consuming enough dairy products, go with calcium-fortified orange juice instead.

7.  Go for whole-grain bread, cereals, and rolls.

8.  Give cantaloupe a try.  With just 95 calories, half of the melon will give more than a day’s supply of Vitamin C and beta carotene.

9.  Don’t be tricked into buying yogurt covered with nuts or raisins, as the coating is normally made of sugar and partially hydrogenated oils.

10.  Get some of the low-fat treats, such as pretzels, ginger snaps, and angel food cake.

By adhering to the above tips when grocery shopping, you’ll avoid the bad foods and get those that you need.  There are many healthy foods at the grocery store, all it takes is the willpower to go past the bad foods and on to the good ones.
