Health Tip: Prepare for Grocery Shopping

Posted by: healthday (October 11, 2011)

(HealthDay News) — Stocking up on healthy groceries doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming, as long as you do a bit of planning.

The American Dietetic Association offers these suggestions:

  • Avoid shopping when you’re hungry, as you may be more tempted to buy junk foods.
  • Create a shopping list, and buy only the items on your list.
  • Create your list according to the layout of your store’s aisles, so you don’t have to wander past the cookies more than once.
  • Choose frozen fruits and veggies so you can eat only what you need and freeze the rest.
  • If buying fresh fruits and vegetables, opt for those that last, such as broccoli, carrots, cabbage and Brussels sprouts.
