Skinny Shopper: Grocery List & Reading Labels

I quickly put together an easy shopping guide to take along to the grocery store.  For me, if there’s nothing to tempt me, then I can stay on track.  But I’ve never been one to have just the serving size of granola, or trail mix… or ‘healthy’ cookies.  So when I’m trying to slim down, I just don’t buy them!

Keep your eyes peeled for the organic label and you’re off to a good start.  I look for low sugar, low sodium and ingredients I’m excited to put in my body.  I don’t want soy, artificial flavors or colors, dairy or gluten.  It’s also important to take a peek at the number of servings — that’s usually where I run into problems!  I can easily munch on 5 servings of peanut butter without even realizing!
