What Does a Health Conscious Shopper Look Like?

March 26th, 2015 / admin / 0 comments

It is incredibly easy to be an unhealthy consumer in America. The truth is we are constantly inundated with fast food commercials and quick meal options that are laden with sugar, salt and other preservatives. Even at the grocery store the aisles are loaded with 30 minutes or less meal boxes and unhealthy snacks that ultimately leave us feeling unsatisfied. It doesn’t have to be this way though!

Here is what it looks like when a health conscious person goes grocery shopping:

  • A health conscious person will stick to the outer perimeter of the grocery store filling up their cart with organic fruit along with free range meats and lots of protein and fiber rich greens. The perimeter takes less time so they will be in and out quickly.
  • When looking for snacks a health conscious shopper grabs fruits for sweet snacks, raw nuts for savory salty snacks and veggies for crunchy snacks. Every item in their cart is identifiable and easily pronounced. Oh, and their grocery bill won’t be nearly as high as most people think healthy items are.
  • The health conscious shopper also has plenty of energy to get through their day, glide through the supermarket and even has enough energy to go home and cook a healthy meal after shopping.

If this doesn’t sound like you, then you might not be a health conscious grocery shopper. This doesn’t make you a bad person; it simply makes you feel less energy and cost more, and often cause huge weight gain. The good news is you can change it!  One step at a time, fresh spinach rather than a store bought salad. Maybe this week you will swap canned fruits for fresh fruits! Next week you add a lot more greens in your cart, and a new veggie to your plate. It doesn’t have to be hard to be healthy. It just takes the willingness to decide to do it.

Here’s to your health! Real FOOD Rocks!
