Set yourself up to be successful by making a few better decisions at the grocery store. Doing so will set yourself up to crush life all week long. Here's a list of 3 extremely easy things you start doing this week:
1. Grocery shop along the outside aisles.
You may have heard this tip in the past, but it's super important so you can benefit from hearing it again. The outside aisles are where you will find your fruits, veggies, meats, eggs, nuts & seeds, etc. Most importantly, the outside aisles will contain much less tempting trash that may trick you into bringing home with you.
2. If it's sold in a box or a bag, leave it alone.
There are obviously several exceptions, however for the most part if it's wrapped in a bag or packed into a box, you don't need it. So the next time you find yourself reaching for that bag of chips or that box of frozen mozzarella sticks, ask yourself it's something you should be taking home with you.
3. The ingredients list is king.
Most people these days have fallen into flipping over their food and reading the calories and fats. This is actually the wrong thing to be looking at. Most of the time it will benefit you better to look at the ingredients list. A solid rule to go by is the shorter the list of ingredients the better. One nutritional fact that you should actually pay attention to is sugar though!
