Next Step…Shop

Next Step…Shop
Now that you know what you are going to eat, the next step is to shop. Keep your refrigerator, freezer and cupboards stocked with healthy food choices and the ingredients for quick, healthy meals. In the store, choose fresh, unprocessed food when possible to get more nutrition and less potentially harmful additives. Select a rainbow of fresh fruits and vegetables. Each color group provides different key nutrients for good health–fresh foods taste great and enhance the eating experience. To speed your prep time, take advantage of frozen fruits and vegetables, pre-cut produce, and pre-cooked poultry and meats. Read labels to keep the added sugar to 2 grams or less per serving.

Armed with a plan and healthy foods on hand, you are well on your way to healthy eating.
