What’s on your shopping list?

There are a lot of temptations in the grocery store aisles. The sugary cereals, processed food and high sugar drinks.

Before going to the store it is best to make a list of things you need. This will help you avoid impulse buys (that usually fall on the not so healthy side.)

Be disciplined as you go through the aisle and keep your main nutrition goals in mind. If your main goal is to eat fresh and healthy as possible, stay to the outside of the store. The perimeter has all of the fresh fruits, veggies, and meats. In the aisles is where the traps lurk with processed foods.

The grocery store can be a place where your meal plan falters or really shines. Make it shine by being prepared, staying to the outside and using discipline.

Make it the best day!
