Lost in the supermarket? A nutritional guide to today's good marketing

Even the most confident person with a fool-proof grocery list can have trouble maneuvering through the maze of marketing in a supermarket. It can be a daunting, confusing, and even overwhelming experience.

But don't stress, we're here to help you navigate through it.
The more you prepare and cook your own food at home, the healthier your diet can be.
When you choose to prep your meals at home, you take control of your health. You not only choose what is on your plate, but how it is prepared, produced, and where it’s from.

Many of the important health decisions you make start in your local supermarket.
TIPS FOR MANEUVERING THE MAZE
____
Displays of fresh vegetables and fruits often greet you as you enter a grocery store. The goal here is to make sure you're fully stocked on produce so you'll have healthy options for meals and grab-and-go snacks.
____
If you are shopping for the week and are concerned about food spoiling, check the frozen section for healthy and organic goods (you may even find frozen organic burgers!).

There are some great snack brands that are championing for a healthier way -- it can be a great treat finding a minimally processed bag of sweet potato chips cooked in coconut oil. Just check ingredients before you buy, including gluten-free options.
____
Heavily processed foods don't need to be kept cold and are packed mostly in the aisles. Hidden sugar, chemicals and preservatives are only a part of the concern: they may be hiding trans fat.
Shop the store perimeter and avoid heavily processed and packaged goods.
 
BEFORE YOU SHOP
 
Eat a healthy snack, never go in hungry.
Make a list to save time and keep you focused.

WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK.
