grocery shopping success part 2
Let's conclude with insights on personalizing your grocery list.
There are basically two approaches:
1. Enlist the aide of various recipes to create your food/ingredient list OR
2. Create a list similar to my sample list and prepare meals based on those items.
Frankly, I prefer the latter, and I'll tell you why. The # 1 reason people struggle with nutrition is the lack of time to prepare meals. Therefore, streamline your meal planning and prep by using the same list week after week.
Chicken, fish, beef, eggs, yogurt, veggies, fruit, nuts, and select complex starchy carbs will be your norm. Your taste buds won't complain, especially if you have the mindset of "eat to live", not "live to eat".
Obviously, you'll have some other "go-to" items on your list. Condiments, spices, cooking ingredients, and supplements, but these are usually not part of your "weekly" list.
Stay in the fast lane as you navigate through grocery store isles. Not only will you reduce your shopping time, but you'll stick to the foods that drive your successful lifestyle.
