For the past year, I have been actively trying to get healthy and eat better. One of the key things I have found that helps me stay on the right track is actively shopping healthy at the grocery store.
I am the worst at impulse buying, especially if I go to a store hungry. In the past year, I have been implementing a system that has worked for me, and I hope it can help you, too!

6 Tips on Shopping Healthy At The Grocery Store
- Make a shopping list ahead of time. Keep a running list during the week of what you run out of and tack it to the fridge. This saves time and money in the long run, trust me.
- Create a meal plan before you shop. Add the items from your meal plan to the list. Creating a meal plan before you begin to shop helps curb impulse buys and keeps you on budget.
- Check for coupons and deals. Have your list and meal plan on hand while you look at coupon sites and booklets. If you are visiting a store like Sam’s Club, check online or in the app for instant savings you receive as a member! (This has saved my budget a lot! I love box stores.)
- Stay away from the processed foods by staying on the perimeter of the store. If you spend most of the time in the fresh foods sections, you won’t be tempted to take any junk food home.
- Look for pre-packed snacks and veggies. If you are pressed for time, like most of us are, make sure you look for healthy snacks and veggies that are pre-made. If you have those on hand, it can keep you from looking for things to eat in the house that are quick but unhealthy. I love the pre-made carrots and broccoli with ranch dressing!
- Remember to take care of your digestive health! If your gut isn’t happy, it may affect the rest of your body. We all know that we can’t eat perfectly all the time and sometimes we need a little help. I make sure I am getting some extra help for my digestive system with Benefiber® and Culturelle® Digestive Health Probiotic.** (I grabbed them on my last Sam’s Club run and got such a good deal with the instant savings!) A prebiotic and probiotic are an everyday essential that you can easily include in your diet. Supporting your immune system and making sure your digestive health is on point is a great way to total body wellness.

My morning breakfast
In order to keep myself in check, I have created a few items that I use every time I shop and an infographic that I have tacked on my fridge.
I also use a grocery list worksheet and printable that helps me keep track of my spending plus what I am buying.
