Easy Guidelines for Healthier Grocery Shopping

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”)
