Hire me to do a Smart Shopping Trip for you and your family. It is a great way to learn about health and life-giving foods. Feeding your body well doesn’t have to be such a challenge. That’s why I offer “Smart Shopping” trips to answer most frequently misunderstood concepts. I even provide recipes to get my clients off to a healthy start as they go home from the grocery store. I love to teach folks how easy it can be to avoid nutrition-related diseases, improve learning and behavior, control weight, increase energy levels, prepare healthy snacks, and make great meals that your body will love as much as your taste buds do! I love food, and there is no reason not to love it, as long as you understand what is in it and where to find the best sources of fuel for the body systems you depend on every day. So many people let the aisles and aisles of choices at the grocery store intimidate them. They stare at the produce and think it will take hours to prep or don’t even know what they would use it for, or they are mesmerized wall of yogurt or eggs wondering what is best! The Get Fitters can now shop with confidence after discovering some of the secrets to identifying healthy foods and what to do with them. I believe they went home from the store more set up for success. My motto is “Work with me if you’d rather Die of Old Age than anything else!”
Tip #1 Eat Living Food and LOTS of it. Living foods are what I call “Go Foods.” To fit this category they need to be: 1) Grown, not manufactured 2) Colorful like the colors in the rainbow 3) Can be eaten raw. (Not that you must eat them raw, but you must be able to eat them raw.) These living foods help you to live long and strong. Natural immune boosters, anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, and phytonutrients just to name of few good reasons. So much more to say on this topic!
Tip #2 Avoid Processed/Manufactured Foods. These are the opposite of Living Food. I call them “Slow Down” foods and you want to focus on quality and quantity here. Also, the front of any box, bag, jar or can is nothing but advertisement so turn off the marketing manipulation and look at the ingredients first (the nutrition info second, but most do not realize the myths hidden here). You are looking for 10 ingredients or less, no High Fructose Corn Syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial ingredients or colors. Ingredients you can pronounce and would eat alone. Be sure you know that there are over 30 names for sugar – this way the manufacturer doesn’t have to claim sugar as the first ingredient, therefore the highest content in the container.
