grocery list

What’s on a dietitian’s grocery list?

Ever wonder what a dietitian buys when they go grocery shopping?* Today, Iā€™m going to share with you my must-have grocery list. There’s some variation here and there, but generally, this list consists of foods I eat on a regular basis. These foods are nutrient dense, delicious, versatile, affordable and accessible. The rule of thumb that I stick to and love sharing with my clients when it comes to grocery shopping is, buy most of your items from the outer parameters of the store (where the fresh, unprocessed foods can be found) and minimize buying items found in the inner aisles of the store (where most of the processed foods are). Treat your body with the nutrition it deserves. It will thank you for that!
