Shopping Tips & Online Groceries
- 9 Months ago
Last week, a team of dietitians' spoke about shopping and cooking healthily in Contours gyms across Bangalore. Here are some shopping tips they shared-
- Always go with a shopping list.
- Keep a list on your fridge and write down the items that are nearly over, immediately.
- Plan a weekly menu whenever possible.
- Make a budget.
- Don't shop when you're hungry.
- Read labels - look for expiry date, ingredients, calories, fat, sugars and sodium. If in doubt, speak with the dietitian.
- Buy in bulk when it makes sense.
- Cut back on 'one-item' trips unless you're walking or cyclling to the grocery store.
- As far as possible shop when your kids are at school so that they do not clamour for junk foods.
- Do not get carried away by advertisements or attractive packaging.
