Shopping for healthy choices can be a real challenge. The supermarket's goal is to get you to spend more and the selections of glamour packaging and promotion often make finding healthy choices difficult on a budget.
Factor in your time and energy to inspect labels and contents and you will see that it can lead to “easy” choices which may be poor ones. In the long run, it costs more money if your health is impacted and your spending on medical care increases.
1. Plan your meals in advance and use that plan to prepare a shopping list at home. Use your sales flyers and coupons, and check your pantry before heading out. Check unit prices while you're at the store.
