Ditch The Diet for Healthy Habits

Shop the Perimeter

~Ditch the Diet~

Don’t know where to start when shopping for healthier food options at the grocery store?

Shop the perimeter.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to begin and end at the farmers’ market (although that is a good place to shop :-)).

Grocery stores have plenty to offer. You just need to know what to look for. Convenience and healthy can be in the same place.

Most whole, natural foods are on the outside aisles of grocery stores.  Think about where you shop for food.  The perimeter is where the produce, dairy, and meat sections usually are.

As you go deeper into the center of the store, you encounter more processed and packaged food.

Start shopping for foods that don’t have labels.  The fresher the food you eat the better you will feel.


I would love for you to follow me on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.

  1. Yup! We adhere to this guideline pretty much – all of the fruits, fresh meats, breads, dairy are on the outer perimeter. Not sure where I originally heard about this concept but it makes sense! We mostly go into the aisles to get condiments and sauces. 😛
