Let’s give your over-stuffed, uninspired grocery cart a little makeover. It’s going to be beautiful!  We’ll fill it with foods that not only taste delicious, but are healthy and budget friendly. Grocery shopping will never be the same again!

Where to start? Sneak a peak at some recipes you haven’t made in a while or things you’d love to try. Make a grocery list. Keep in mind these 4 easy ways you can give your grocery cart a slimmer, sexier, more energetic look. Ready, set, shop!

 

1. STICK TO THE OUTSIDE

Stick to the outside rows of your local grocery store next time you’re out grocery shopping. This is where you find fresh produce, bulk nuts and seeds, whole grain breads, fish, meat and dairy. These are some of the healthiest foods you can put into your grocery cart…eating a diet rich in these whole foods has been linked to being slimmer, healthier and more beautiful.

 

2. FIND A RAINBOW

Eating a variety of colourful, fresh foods that haven’t been processed is a healthy choice, and an economical one. A rainbow of foods in your grocery cart makes it more beautiful to look at. Ah, ha! See, grocery shopping can be a beautiful thing.

 

3. BUY IN-SEASON

Look for fruits and vegetables that are full of colour, look crisp and fresh. Fill your grocery cart will produce that is in-season as often as possible!

 

4. DIVE INTO BULK

Buying food from the bulk aisle is a great money-saving strategy to use while grocery shopping. It can be a healthy choice too!
