Quick Tips For A Healthy Food Shop

Below are a few tips to help you too become better with nutrition:

Try and start to do a few of these and you will soon find a positive change in your nutritional habits

 

WRITE A SHOPPING LIST

Plan your meals in advance (use a food diary) and make a shopping list, and stick to it! This will help to keep you on track as you won’t buy anything that you don’t need and anything that is on offer (which tends to be the sweet tempting things that are bad for you)

BUY SOME HEALTHY OPTIONS IN BULK

Whether this means a huge tub of Greek yogurt for the week or a big bag of quinoa, lentils, and almonds to last you a few months, your wallet will thank you.

AVOID RUSH HOUR

If you go when its busy you are less likely to read what you are actually buying. Go when its quiet and use the time to compare a few items, you will be surprised at the different nutritional values of the same product but different brand

CHECK THE FOOD LABELS

They can be deceiving but you need to know what you are eating!

  • Traffic light – aim for foods which are primarily green, avoid RED
  • Serving size – be careful here as what they suggest a serving size is will not be yours! Something that is 100 calories per serving may not be that good if you eat the whole thing and its serving size is 5 = 500 calories!
  • Ingredients list (see below)
  • Low fat/sugar/calories etc. – it is only lower than its original, other brands normal version may actually be better for you. It may have also just replaced with something else so cross check ingredients (most low fat products replace with sugar – if this is the case then buy the full one as you can burn fat off)

READ THE INGREDIENTS

Nothing is more important than the ingredients that you put into your body. If you don’t know what most of the ingredients are or if it has lots, then don’t buy it! The less ingredients it has the better.

CHECK OUT THE FREEZER SECTION

No – we are not talking about chips and frozen meals! Frozen vegetables can be just as nutritious as fresh vegetables since it can often take days between when the vegetables are harvested and when they end up on your plate. Frozen fruit such as strawberries are also a good option and cheaper than fresh too

DON’T GO WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY

Going food shopping when you are hungry is a bad combination. You will end up buying convenience food that is quick – which tend to be the bad choices. Instead, have a small snack before you go which will keep you going till you get home

AVOID THE BAD/TEMPTING ISLES

All of the bad food – crisps, chocolate, biscuits, cakes etc are all on one isle, the best way to avoid buying these foods is to just AVOID it!

 

Try these quick tips and start to change your diet. If your still unsure and need a helping hand at changing your lifestyle then join us on one of our weekend bootcamp retreats in the UK or Fitness Holidays and we can help you transform your life for the better
