The grocery store is temptation-central for unhealthy foods (frosted sugar flakes, anyone?). The best way to avoid processed food traps? Stick along the edges, where fresh produce, lean meats, dairy, and whole grains are normally located. Aisles are generally home to boxed, sugary, and high-sodium treats — stuff we can definitely afford to avoid.
The Takeaway: Stay along the edges of the grocery store to resist temptation and select from healthier foods.
Sneak in Veggies
Get creative with fitting more nutritious vegetables into those favorite dishes.
There’s nothing accidental about how things are arranged in the local store. Don’t be tricked!
