I love this article!! I'm pleased to see that after almost 3 years on Spark, this is already what my grocery list looks like. I focus on finding and creating meals from fresh, minimally processed foods (although I still like my extra Fiber Wheat Thins).
I wish I could save this article to my SparkPeople profile! Jocelyn
I refuse to drink anything but full fat milk. Anything less and it just taste like milk flavored water. In any case, I like to use milk as a meal substitute when I'm too lazy to cook or realized that there is nothing else in the house.
I also agree with ACERENO, low fat cheese is disgusting. But I can only buy cheese once in awhile. That's the food that really got me down this bad road.

I was so pleased to see full-fat cheese listed as long as it is eaten in moderation. I can drink skim milk and eat low-fat yogurt but refuse to eat low-fat cheese. I needs my Havarti from time to time: in moderation of course :)
Awesome Article! Everyone needs to know the basics to a healthy shopping cart. I was at the grocery store the other day a I wanted so badly to talk to a woman about nutrition - her cart was loaded down with Lean Cuisines and 3 cases of Coke.
