  • i noticed that the links weren't working. - 10/30/2010 1:57:39 PM
  • 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!

  • 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. - 9/17/2010 10:47:18 PM
    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 :) - 9/17/2010 5:36:48 PM

  • 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. - 3/11/2009 9:02:55 AM
  • Very informative! And I've been playing basketball since I was 10 and never was told what to buy and not to buy. - 1/22/2009 1:01:17 PM
    Awesome article! - 12/19/2008 8:02:36 AM
  • Shop the outer edge of the grocery store. - 8/23/2008 10:57:52 AM
  • This article is terrific. Every new memeber should be invited to read this off the bat (or rather the keyboard, to coin a newer phrase.) Maybe listed on our start pages? - 1/16/2008 8:47:09 AM
  • One thing NOT to get in the produce section is Sunny D 'fruit' drink. It is false advertising to even have this product displayed so prominantly in the produce section. It is NOT A FRUIT JUICE DRINK. - 1/16/2008 6:48:03 AM
