I love teaching people “how to food shop”…
For some it’s a TOTAL game-changer, and for others, it simply adds new options and strategies to an already strong style of “grocery management”
It’s something I used to do as a specific service for individuals and families back in my ‘one on one’ training days…
But this one was for a “Bonus Extra Event” for the ladies of our local SCULPTAFIT Studio… And I turned on the ‘Voice Recorder’ app during the tour and then uploaded it to youtube so I can share it with all our clients who could not make it that day – and to also share it with you…
Here it is (click on it to hear it). Enjoy and please use the colorful share buttons below to share it wherever you wish, so we can help others who need this kind of guidance:
Here are a few of the key take-aways some of the women made note of (there are a bunch more so keep listening):
1 – Pre-purchase all staple items from Bulk Warehouses (Costco, etc) and/or online sources, such as Amazon, Thrive Market (20% Off Orders Today), etc…
KEY TIP: Use “monthly auto-ship” on the items you use on a regular basis. By doing this, you usually get preferred pricing, and cuts down on the amoutn you need to buy when you go food shopping – hence making those local trips faster and easier.
2 – If you’re addicted to diet sodas, GET OFF ASAP… (you DO NOT want to keep consuming the chemical sweeteners in those)
You can easily do that by switching to ZEVIA All-Natural Soda here <<==
They have a bunch of amazing flavors, including decaf Cola.
3 – Frozen Veggies and Fruits are a #1 item to “Have On Hand”
Lots of people still don’t know that “frozen” fruits and veggies are awesome for you.
They think that since they are not “fresh”, something is sacrificed… which is not true.
Most of my veggies start as ‘frozen’ from the freezer. Having s full supply of bulk bags from Costco makes eating right so EASY.
I’m all for fresh ones of course – BUT, in a busy hectic life, having a stash of frozen items ready to steam or sautee is a life-saver.
4 – Many supermarkets are “cleaning up” their salad bars and hot food counters. Leverage These Regularly…
For example, the store where did the Food Tour in the audio above, Earth Fare, has an incredible selection of salads and prepared foods…
THE KEY is to still be mindful of choices and volume.
My point in mentioning this is that it gives you another viable option when your days get tight and you have no time to cook…
You can stop by a market on the way home from work, pick up what you need, in the amount that suits you and your family – and BOOM, dinner is done and you’re still “in the zone” when it comes to your healthy nutrition.
5 – One way to avoid certain destructive foods or beverages is to simply “drop them” from your personal menu.
For example – about 18 months ago, I decided to “drop” alcoholic beverages for good.
Now, when I roll through the market – I don’t spend any time in the wine, or craft beer section because I don’t consume any of those. My food shops are even more simplified because of that – and ‘life is better’ (saves me a lot of money too) 🙂
There are MANY more tips and gems in the audio above – so please listen, takes notes and then…
