It’s easy to make bad choices when you go tot he grocery store without a list. So I created an easy grocery list for you to follow. First here are some tips when you are grocery shopping…

  1. Keep eating simple.
  2. Eat whole one ingredient foods.
  3. Eat same meals. You do not HAVE to eat the same thing everyday however I find it helpful from making bad choices. (I mix it up and get different in season fruits and veggies every week.)
  4. Avoid pre-packaged foods as those are the ones that contain harmful ingredients.
  5. Read labels. NO more buying foods that have added sugar. Look under ingredients, if you see sugar listed put it back on the shelf.
  6.  Make sure you buy enough to last you a week so you don’t have to go to to the store again. 
  7. Meal prepping helps. Try to use one day a week to make a couple entries in large quantities so you don’t have to think about what to make after work.
