Tip of the Week! Be mindful of the middle aisles

carrotNutrition experts are fond of telling people to only shop the peripheries of the grocery store since that’s where most of the whole foods, like fruits and vegetables, are located. The highly processed foods, meanwhile, are usually found in the middle aisles.

Well, turns out this advice isn’t always true because there are a lot of not-to-be-missed healthy foods in the central part of the store that should be in your grocery cart. These include whole foods like beans (dry and canned), whole grains, and frozen fruits and vegetables.

So be sure to venture to those middle aisles, but detour around the highly processed junk food, including sugar-sweetened cereals, chips and cookies!
