5 Secrets to Shopping Smart
Shopping Smart on Healthy Food
We all want to eat right and save money on food, but where do you start?
The grocery store is a maze of boxes,
cans and packages. The produce section is no help either. Fortunately for you there’s Eden’s Corner. We’ve got meal planning advice, healthy recipes and fabulous cookbooks. Healthy eating is just a few clicks away!
1. Plan your meals
Making a list will ensure you buy only what you need. Impulse buying can be costly. Buy only what you’ll need for a few days or week. Stick to your plan. Check out Eden’s recipes and healthy cookbooks below for nutritious meal ideas.
2. Buy "Safe" Produce
Consult the Environmental Working Group’s list of The Dirty Dozen and The Clean Fifteen. This gives you guidelines to the most harmful non-organic produce and also produce that is safe to buy if not organic.
Organic produce is especially important for children as their little bodies are more vulnerable to chemicals. With the rise of childhood cancer from pesticides you’d be wise to safeguard your little one. Organic produce contains vital minerals. Non-organic produce is virtually devoid of life-giving minerals which lead to illness and disease.
3. Share the Savings
Buying in bulk can save you a lot of money. Go in on large bulk items with friends and family. Shop where you can purchase bulk items such as organic peanut or almond butter, rice, flour, oats, etc. Buying raw, unfiltered honey in bulk can save you a lot of money also.
Share, barter or purchase produce from your neighbors. Perhaps you have extra fruit or vegetables they need and vice versa. Even if you don't know them it doesn't hurt to ask. Do inquire about any chemicals they may have used.
As a youngster I watched my grandmother and aunties 'cull' fruit from trees and during the spring we'd venture to nearby apple orchards to wild harvest late spring asparagus.
4. Leave processed Foods on the Shelf
Boxed, canned and packaged foodstuffs are expensive. Most contain many harmful ingredients that are addictive and lead to weight gain. Because they contain empty calories not nutrients, your body is starving, making you feel hungry.
5. Empower Yourself
There are basic foods that create health.
It isn’t rocket science and it need not be difficult. Having a cookbook that offers healthy ingredients will ensure your success and lead you to health and longevity.
