Health tip #10 - Do not go to the grocery store hungry. Make sure you have eaten a healthy snack to avoid binge buying products you would normally not buy. This tip comes from Zema’s Creator, Jill Motew(bio on tip #9).
We’ve all done it…not enough time to eat a sensible snack, rushed off to the grocery store before school lets out and purchased over $100 of junk in the meantime. Eating that healthy snack prior to shopping will not only help you avoid making bad, quick-fix decisions in the aisle, but will also prompt you to choose healthy foods around the perimeter of the store instead of down those processed food aisles where those hidden empty calories and sugars live. Come home with healthy, happy grocery bags full of natural vitamins and minerals.
Try this quick wrap before rushing off.
1 brown rice wrap
1/2 cucumber, sliced lengthwise
1 cup baby spinach
Spread hummus around the wrap and lay down the veggies in middle. Season with sea salt and pepper. Roll up tight and enjoy. Simple, quick, light and filling. Perfect for a quick fix.
