    Shopping list tips + pantry tricks
    + Eat organic. You knew it was coming. As often as you possibly can, shop and eat organic. While prices may be slightly more expensive at local groceries, if you visit farmers markets or produce markets the prices are comparable or even less expensive. Organic foods have a higher nutritional value than conventional foods sans additives, pesticides, fertilizers and preservatives.

    + Eat seasonally and locally. Locally grown produce and foods taste better. Buying local foods also supports the community and local farmers which are essential in maintaining local ecosystems and preserving wildlife.

    + Buy in bulk (when possible). Buying in bulk is more cost-efficient and save you at least a trip or two to the market.

    + Use glass jars to maintain freshness and longevity (and it looks pretty too!). Being able to see your products is encouraging, and you’ll see that being prepared is easy.


    What to avoid at the market
    + Avoid products that make health claims. Don’t be fooled by claims such as “all
    natural”, “no sugar added”, “sugar free”, “zero trans fat” and so forth. Many of these
    labels make false claims or bend the truth to seem like healthy options when in
    reality they often times have replaced natural ingredients with artificial and synthetic substitutes.

    + Avoid eating foods containing words you can’t pronounce. On the subject of
    synthetic ingredients, additives are often used by manufacturers to enhance the flavors
    of food and to preserve its freshness, the downside is many of these ingredients are
    potentially harmful to your health and can have long lasting effects. Make sure to read
    up on the ingredients listed on the nutrition table of the items you buy.

    + Avoid eating foods that don’t expire. Hopefully this one is self explanatory. While we
    definitely want you to continue eating RAW honey and beans — which virtually have no
    expiration date we don’t want you to continue to eat processed foods that have a long
    shelf life. These items are found in those middle aisles you want to avoid as much as you can. Set a timer in your head for the middle aisles and stay at the periphery of the supermarket where you will find all the fresh foods.

    + Make it a point to eat fresh foods — not dead food i.e. packaged or processed foods.
