Trying to buy food in a grocery store can be a challenge. You could be very tempted to get junk foods and products that have many bad ingredients. Here are some tips to choose the right foods:

  • Stay in the produce section and the outer perimeter of the store
  • Stay out of the aisles
  • Avoid too many foods in bags or boxes
  • Avoid consuming too many products that do NOT have an expiration date – means the food has too many additives and preservatives
  • Avoid foods that contain more than 4 ingredients
  • Avoid foods with ingredients you cannot pronounce
  • Shop at local farmer’s markets
  • Consider a home or community garden
  • Hunt wild game, fish in rivers, lakes, and oceans
  • Consider trading foods with farmers and hunters for food or services
