9 Tips for Easy Grocery Shopping
Here are my top 9 tips for easy grocery shopping:
1. Navigating the Aisles
2. Shop with Your Head, Not Stomach
3. Bottoms Up!
4. Bulk Vs. Pre-packaged
5. Frozen Vs. Fresh
7. Fat-free, what? More Like Flavour-free!
8. The Nutrition Facts Table may be Misleading
You might be thinking: “Hm..I can read the labels, but how do I know what’s actually good for me?”. It’s best to focus on the ingredients rather than the nutrition facts table unless you have a specific restriction (for diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure, etc…). Numbers on the nutrition facts table may look higher than you’d like depending on what’s in the product, but the bigger concern is about WHAT’s IN the food. Ingredients are always listed in order from greatest to least quantity within the food. One helpful tip is to avoid foods with a long list of ingredients, especially if you can’t even pronounce the majority of the ingredient names! Mystery meat? Ummm…
