In this video, journalist Michael Pollan helps us navigate the grocery store to find fresh, whole foods.
Ready for your next trip to the supermarket? Here are some tips to make you a savvy shopper:
- Shop along the edges: Fresh fruits, vegetables, and other whole ingredients are placed around the edges of most supermarkets. Skip the center aisles where junk food and processed goods are placed.
- Look at labels: Stay away from foods with lots of ingredients – especially ones you can’t pronounce!
- Shop at a Farmers Market: Whenever possible, buy directly from your local farmer to get fresh, seasonal and nutritious foods.
- Buy real food: As Pollan suggests, don’t eat anything your grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
