  • once you pass the learning curve it becomes second nature
  • we find that going first thing in the morning to the grocery store works well for us. It isn't very busy and it really doesn't matter which day of the week we go - except Mondays, which seem to be when they are restocking the shelves from the weekend shoppers
  • advance planning is the key to eating healthy
  • I love it when I get usable content from an article!
  • These are great ideas! Now I need to do them!
    Love these ideas. Never even thought to do some of these.
  • Great ideas! My fast food is fresh fruit or carrot and celery sticks.
    Thank you Tanya for this filling article. Being on a hurry doesn't mean you're going to skip a meal or even neglect eating the right kind of food. Your article is a good reminder for all of us. Please do recommend this to your readers. Thanks.
  • I'd like to add to the reasons for not buying in bulk: if you're not very selective, you can end up either giving away or throwing away a good portion of your purchase, negating any initial savings.
  • We have it down pretty good.
  • eating and driving is one bad habbit that i try to avoid. It is not only really unsafe it also wrecks my diet cos at the end of the day it doesn't count as a 'real' meal and i end up consuming too many calories. in addition to the wonderful shopping tips, planning 10 mins for a meal ought to be priority.
    I LOVE the ShopperLite app. I never worry about where my list is because my phone is almost always with me. I can add to the list as things occur to me. Plus I can check off the items as I shop (I don't need to bring a pen shopping) and I can sort the list by aisle. Plus it remembers past items so I don't have to retype each time. There is also a place to keep your favorite recipes or explore the ones already loaded. Check it out!
  • or many years I earned a living in construction, where I would often work 7 days a week 12 hours a day, out of town, living in a motel, rooming house, tent, or whatever. Most of the guys I worked with ate at restaurants; I usually went to grocery stores instead. And now at 59 I still have very good health while those who ate less healthy are either dead or close to it. There were other factors; they tended to spend time at bars while I was going to gyms and martial art schools...

    I always carried a good spoon, fork, and paring knife wrapped up in a cloth napkin in my lunch box, and a can opener. Here are a few of my favorite grocery store and quick shop meals. Avocado; cut it in half and eat it with a spoon. Individual container of fat free yogurt. Peanut butter, eaten with a spoon out of the jar. Nuts and beef jerky, both available from quick shops. Fruit, whatever is in season (should have done the same with veggies). Lunchmeat sandwiches on whole grain bread. Canned olives and various veggies. V8, fruit juice, or milk, found even in quick shops. Salad bar and other buffets often had more or less healthy food too.

    While none of this might seem ideal, it's infinitely healthier than whatever else you might find when you're on the road with not a lot of spare time.
