Need Help – Grocery Shopping

Just like everything else we do – our lives are really just habit.

I’m sure that you already buy basically the same things every trip to the grocery store.

So, let’s just adjust your habits.

Do you need help grocery shopping?  Do you need more fruits and veggies around the house?

Comment below – whether you are at the grocery store now or know that it’s an errand on your list for later today – and let’s share with each other suggestions for improving your grocery shopping.

    I saw your segment on the news – great stuff! My challenge is cooking for my family of 4 without gluten, eggs, or cow dairy…help!? 🙂

      I’ve had a few inquiries from families with allergies. Boy am I glad that we don’t have anyone allergic eggs! I don’t know how we’d cope. I do have a friend whose daughter is allergic to eggs – so I’m going to tap into her knowledge for ya.
      I’m not an expert in dealing with food allergies though. My son has a mild allergy to soy products and strawberries – mild rash and grouchiness (sometimes a runny nose) are the only side effects. But that is why I started making the breakfast foods that he loves from scratch. I was trying to avoid soy lecithin in packaged products.

      Let’s start with writing down what the family can eat – we’ll work from there! Hope to hear from you soon.

    We have some food allergies, plus my mom lives with us for the winter. She has different eating needs. Also some very extreme dislikes of certain foods.

      I’ve found that it helps by writing down what kids/mom will eat – we can work from there!

    Our family has been hard core junk food junkies all our lives. As a result (or at least partially as a result), I’m hypothyroid, my husband is Type 2 Diabetic, and our kids who are almost 4 & 6, are NOT open to trying new things :/ I’m trying to wean off my thyroid meds, but can’t yet because I keep eating processed foods. My advantages are that I’m a stay at home mom, and we are in the process of buying a home that has a kitchen that is MUCH more user friendly than our current rental house…I’m plotting making meals from scratch, with wholesome ingredients instead of processed prepackaged stuff. Canning and freezer cooking, maybe even Once a Month cooking are in our future 😀 I think I could be ok with eggs AFTER I stop eating processed foods. I’m pretty sure my body is just such a mess right now because of all the processed junk that it’s rebelling against food that I wouldn’t have problems with otherwise.

    Two of the best things that we have done in the past year that maybe your followers could do: 1. NO PROCESSED Foods in the house. I “perimeter” shop at the grocery store. Now I don’t make all of my own foods, like ketchup and mustard, but I do look at labels and buy organic when I can. We also order greenbeandelivery.com for our fruits, veggies, and I buy milk as well. For $35 (either weekly or biweekly, you choose) minimum, you can customize with fresh, organic fruits and vegies. It is the BEST thing that has happened to us. 2. We follow the “MY PLATE”, using a salad plate instead of a large dinner plate. Those two things have made the largest impact in our lives, including better mental fitness, better physical fitness, and healthier eating. Love your blog and look forward to many more posts!!
