How to Grocery Shop

For years, health experts have suggested we shop the outer rim of supermarket shelves—where unprocessed food items are usually located—and avoid the inner aisles as much as possible. The counters and coolers along the perimeter of most grocery stores include fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, meat, eggs, dairy products, and sometimes raw grains, nuts and seeds.

“Elizabeth Ward, RD, author of The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to the New Food Pyramids, says we should fill our shopping carts with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, lean meat, fish, poultry, beans and nuts. “Be adventurous; aim to try a new fruit or vegetable each week.”

“When buying or eating food, always remember that the more processes a food has to go through before it gets to you, the quicker you should decide against buying and eating it. The more devitalized and processed foods you eliminate from your diet, the healthier you will be.” (Stormie Omartian, Greater Health God’s Way)

“…factory food is designed to make you want to eat more. And wanting to eat more is the polar opposite of being satisfied. How does the factory food industry get you to want to eat more? The primary addicting ingredient is sugar, but the deal clincher is the flavor enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG).” (Death by Supermarket by Nancy Deville)

Avoid factory food addiction. Eat real food. Happy shopping! Becky
