Smart Cart Top 5

Grocery cart

Going to the grocery store can be a challenge; the colorful advertisements, bustling customers, and trying to shop on a budget and nutritionally. Where do we begin? Here are my top 5 tips to make your grocery shopping a breeze!

1. Whole wheat: Whole wheat pasta, bread, pita bread, english muffins, cous cous, orzo, tortillas, and rice. Given the opportunity choose whole wheat grains. Multi-grain can be a combination of flours and not pack as much fiber and protein as a whole wheat option. Whole wheat is loaded with fiber and protein, keeping you fuller longer.

2. Ground chicken breast or turkey breast: Buying ground chicken or ground turkey is a step in the right direction. However, it is best to choose ground chicken breast or ground turkey breast when choosing poultry. For 4 ounces of ground chicken you are looking at about 12-16 grams of fat per serving. If you choose ground chicken breast, you cut the fat to about 1.5 -4 grams of fat per serving. Big difference!

3. Low sodium: When choosing stock, soups, seasoning packets, or beans. Decide to choose the package labeled “low sodium”. Many prepackaged foods are loaded with salt. Choose the low-sodium option and if you need to add more salt, you can control how much salt you add and consume.

4. Skim or Low-fat Dairy: Cottage cheese, yogurt, milk, and cheese are all delicious! Here at H3, we use low-fat or non-fat dairy products most of the time. Try different brands and see which ones you can live with being low-fat or non-fat and stick with them. When making a sandwich or you H3 Pita Pizza, you can use a half ounce of full-fat cheese, such as feta or provolone. Choosing a full fat option and cutting the portion will satisfy you and will make it easier to use less.

5. Convenient Produce: In the produce isle you can find several fruits and vegetables pre packaged. This produce is already prepared for you, which will make throwing dinner together quick, easy, and nutritious. Buying fresh pre cut fruit is a great idea for your breakfast too, throw some berries onto your H3 Eye Opener Oatmeal every morning.

Don’t let the grocery store scare you. It’s easy, go in there with a Metabo Meal in your stomach and a shopping list; you will dominate that grocery store before you know it!
