Eating healthy is doable for EVERYONE. But it can be difficult when grocery stores tempt you with all of their processed, sugar-laden items.
I’m here to help make the grocery shopping process easier for you so that you and your families can remain healthy!
Check out your local farmer’s market
Farmer’s Markets generally sell only fresh fruit and vegetables, and so the likelihood of you purchasing too many boxes of cereal will be close to none. And even though farmer’s markets can be quite pricey, there’s usually at least one stand that has a great deal. I’ve paid 6 dollars for 3 bundles of kale before and made this Coastal Kale Salad. Fresh kale for 6 bucks? Yes, please! Our local farmer’s market also has the deal of mixing and matching 10 pounds of fruit for only $15. Our fridge is permanently stocked with pluots, nectarines, peaches, and grapes.
In a nutshell, look in your cart when you’re checking out at the grocery market. If most of your items are perishable foods from the perimeter of the store, and there are mostly vegetables and fruits, then you’ve probably done a great job of purchasing healthier foods to feed your family with!
