The Grocery Store Pathway

The most important rule of thumb for the grocery store pathway is to shop the perimeter.  The outside aisles are where you will find the fruits, veggies, lean meats, whole grains and dairy.  The majority of your Superfoods will be found here as well.

Allow yourself brief trips down the center aisles only for things that are on your list.  The center aisles contain the lower quality food items and are often filled with enticing JUNK!  Stay focused!  Remember to leave with everything on your list and nothing else.
