Develop A Produce Shopping Habit

This Sparked Me!

When I go shopping I always go to the fruits and veggies section first and pick up ... anything. It saves me from wandering into the less healthy stuff and it ensures that I always have fruits and veggies around.

I look for items that work well as snacks if I don't have a specific meal plan in mind. Thinking of these items as snacks also seems to sate the need to buy unhealthy snacks.

    I often hear, "Don't buy bananas or avocado. They are too fatty." Even the world's fattiest banana or avocado is healthier than anything in the candy isle! There's no fruit or veg that is off limits.

    In addition to the secret, I also always check out the "buy this before we pitch it" section...I find this a great way to try produce that I have never had before...this has allowed me to discover a LOT of things I really LOVE!!!!
