Start the new year right by following these simple tips for making healthier choices at the grocery store.
Buy less-processed foods and more whole fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and simple dairy products. Fresh and frozen produce is nutrient dense and low in calories. When you do purchase foods with a label, follow these guidelines:
- Less than or equal to 10 grams of sugar
- Greater than or equal to 3 grams of fiber
- Less than or equal to 250 mg of sodium
- No trans fats and minimal saturated fats (Avoid “hydrogenated oil” and “partially hydrogenated oil”)
