How To Navigate The Grocery Store
Most grocery stores have the same layout, with fresh foods (produce, meat, and dairy) on the perimeter of the store, and processed foods (with longer shelf lives) on the aisles in the middle of the store. Since we try to primarily eat whole, unprocessed foods, we tend to stick to the edges of the store as much as possible.
Craving some mashed potatoes? Rather than grabbing a box of dehydrated potato flakes, which is chock full of preservatives, pick up some potatoes, milk, and butter. With less than five minutes of prep time, you can have delicious, and more nutritious, homemade mashed potatoes.
Got a hunkering for some salsa? Don't reach for the jar conveniently located next to the bag of chips. Instead, pick up some tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic, and red onions. Throw them all in your blender and in no time you have fresh salsa that can be as salty and spicy as you choose.
