Healthy Grocery Shopping

Dallas, TX, January 24, 2006 -- Dining out is seldom a healthy choice. Between the oversized portions, the chips and salsa or the bottomless bread baskets, restaurant patrons often find themselves leaving full – full of calories, excess sodium and fat.

Unfortunately for many Americans, eating in is not always healthier. With the plethora of frozen foods, fast foods and prepackaged foods, a “home cooked” meal can be prepared in minutes with a microwave or a drive-thru window as the ingredient of choice.

Grocery shopping can be overwhelming and many shoppers find themselves opting for a quick meal, instead of venturing into fresher, more nutritious ingredients. Dallas-based Lady Trainers To Go nutritionist Anna Yuschak, M.S. Nutrition, advises how to grocery shop for meals that are tasty and healthy.

Yuschak suggests covering the basics. A healthy everyday diet will incorporate fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats. Meat should be at least 90 percent lean. If it does not say so on the packaging, the meat is probably not lean.

When shopping for whole grains, look for the official Whole Grain Stamp. It is a national designation that ensures products are made with whole grains, which reduce the risk of heart disease, strokes, cancer, diabetes and obesity, according to the National Whole Grain Council.

To spice up healthy meals, check out the spices and seasonings. Look for spices with low to no sodium. Yuschak suggests seasoning by Mrs. Dash.

Pick out fresh vegetables in the produce section. While shopping, repeat the mantra, “the brighter the better.”

“Orange and red vegetables tend to be higher in Vitamin C and the bright colored berries are loaded with antioxidants,” said Yuschak. “Green colored veggies, such as broccoli and green peppers, are high in all vitamins.”

When shopping for quick meals, such as breakfast cereals and frozen dinners, pay very close attention to labels. Yuschak suggests cereals high in fiber (at least 5g/serving) and low in sugar. Frozen food can be healthy; look for meals low in sodium. Frozen meals are pre-portioned so you are less likely to overeat.

Finally, a good rule of thumb is to do the grocery shopping on a full stomach. “If you’re hungry at the grocery store, then everything looks good,” emphasizes Yuschak. Her suggestion is to make a list and stick to it.

Yuschak provides nutritional counseling and both long and short-term meal plans for clients with Lady Trainers To Go.
