Healthy shopping is perimeter shopping!
Have you heard the phrase “perimeter shopping” mentioned before? What does it mean? When you walk into a standard grocery store, the groceries located around the perimeter of the store tend to be the healthiest and the least processed foods. Whether its fresh baked bread, fresh produce (not canned) or different meats located in the butcher and seafood departments, these are fresh, raw foods that need to be prepared to be consumed. They are usually devoid of salts and preservatives needed to make food last in a can for storage on a shelf. Next time you are out grocery shopping try to stay out of the middle of the store and do yourself and you body a favor, try to buy from around the perimeter of the store.
