Grocery Shopping Made Healthy

Shopping healthy made simple thanks to Darya Pino (scientist and self-described foodie) at the Summer Tomato blog, who took the general rules for shopping healthy and produced a useful graphic.

My advice for shopping healthy includes steering your shopping cart around the outer edges of the grocery store where you find the produce, dairy and meats. Anytime you go down an aisle, you risk buying processed foods that may not be healthy for you. Make a habit of reading the ingredients list on the product's label to decide whether it fits the food category. And BTW, when you start reading the ingredients, you will be shocked at how much sugar is found in processed "food."
