Hey friendly folks!! I hope everyone is having a warm and comfy Sunday. As we begin our week, let’s make sure we are shopping and stocking our fridge with these key nutrient dense grocerys!
- Dairy anyone!?
Vitamin D and calcium are important for a healthy and strong bones. Stock up on some milk, low-fat yogurts, and low-fat cheese. (Moderation on that cheese 😉). And if you’re a vegetarian like myself, you can find some delicious non-dairy substitutions ( almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk, and my classic favorite Soy).
–read your food labels when it comes to yogurt for high sugar content!!
2. Red meat or nah?
Let’s get our daily recommended protein up!! But let’s have some better substitutions. Lean turkey and lean chicken are way healthier choices and just as delicious! And try to cut down the red meat to once every two weeks. There are also so many plant-based protein items. Please just read the food labels for high carbs and sodium content before trying.
3. Omega my life?
Omegas are so important for brain health. Fish should be consumed 2-3 times per week.
4. Is someone acting a bit grainy!?
The digestive gods have spoken!! “Whole grains”, and I say “whole” because you MUST read your food labels people. For a healthy digestive track and flow, whole grains are essential. Just don’t over do it on the bread. A little( 2 slices) can go a long way.
5. Don’t forget to eat your fruits and vegetables!!
My favorite items on the list!! There are so many dishes we can make from just vegetables and fruits. Brighten up your life(and plate 😝) with some mashed sweet potatoes, broccoli, strawberries, blueberries, spinach, kale, mangoes, oranges, and red peppers!! And remember!!
Write your grocery list out before you leave the house, research what vitamins and minerals you want to add to your diet, AND NEVER GO FOOD SHOPPING HUNGRY!!
