Theres no denying that grocery stores can get overwhelming with so many choices lining the shelves. Food labels are often difficult to decipher. Shopping every aisle gets time consuming. So what do you do? Our tip: skip the aisles. (Well...most of them anyway.) Your focus should be on the perimeter of the store. Heres how to best navigate it: Produce Youll get the best value picking up fruits and veggies that are in season, but theres no need to limit yourself there. If youre following a strict paleo diet, bypass sugar snap peas, corn, and white potatoes. Avocado is a great healthy fat, but plan accordingly. Darker skin means a ripe avocado, so if you dont intend to use it right away, choose one thats on the greener side. Meat and Seafood Go for lean cuts of protein like chicken breasts, pork, ground turkey, and steak. If your market has fresh fish, salmon and tuna fillets or shrimp are all excellent options. Deli meats are processed and can have fillers, so its best to skip that entirely. Dairy Grab some eggs and be on your way. Eggs are protein heavy and versatile, plus the yolk is a good source of fat. If youre a little more lax about paleo but still want to maintain a healthy diet, consider some plain greek yogurt. Add some chia seeds (make sure they soak for a few hours to expand) and chopped fruit into the yogurt and youve got a quick and easy breakfast or snack. The Aisles There isnt much youll need in the aisles because most of it is processed. There are still a few items worthy of your shopping cart though, like nuts, nut butters, seeds, and specialty flours like almond and coconut. Make sure your nut butter doesnt have added ingredients, and remember that peanuts arent paleo. Your last stop can be the frozen aisle for plain fruits and vegetables. Fresh is always better, but frozen is great to have on hand as a backup. Follow our advice and the result will be a healthier kitchen and less time spent in the supermarket.
