Wellness Shopping For The Beginner 

Did you know that everything you need in your diet is on the outer sections of the store? To me the only purpose for the aisles are sugar and fats. It is amazing how even our grocery stores are strategically planned to get us to buy things that are unhealthy for us. Now I have always been a strong believer of everything in moderation. Everything (including food) has its time and place. Here are some tips to keep your shopping on track.

1.Fill your basket with the outside. Grab fruits, veggies, meats, and dairy to add those major food groups in your diet. Fresh is best so be conscious and aim for the outside.

2. Go down the aisles with a plan. Create a grocery list of exactly what you need down what aisle. Let’s be honest, we have to go down the aisles for water, oil, seasonings, and other things. A list will allow you to stay focused on your health goal. 

3.Lastly… close your eyes at the register. Yes. I said it. Why do you think the candy and chips just so happens to be right there when you checkout. Avoid them at all cost. Also keep an eye on your kiddos. Remember chocolate is high (for adults), and fruity is low (for children).
Well there you go. It seems nothing is fair game in the grocery store, but you can be well prepared with me tips to play your own game. Take the steps to making your shopping experience “Well & Fit “.

Live. Love. Well & Fit .
