I quickly put together an easy shopping guide to take along to the grocery store. For me, if there’s nothing to tempt me, then I can stay on track. But I’ve never been one to have just the serving size of granola, or trail mix… or ‘healthy’ cookies. So when I’m trying to slim down, I just don’t buy them!
For Label Reading, I have this quick video that explains how I decode a nutrition label:
Keep your eyes peeled for the organic label and you’re off to a good start. I look for low sugar, low sodium and ingredients I’m excited to put in my body. I don’t want soy, artificial flavors or colors, dairy or gluten. It’s also important to take a peek at the number of servings — that’s usually where I run into problems! I can easily munch on 5 servings of peanut butter without even realizing!
