Do delivery!! This way you are intentional about what you get and don’t forget the essentials. Plus you spend less.
When going in person or shopping online- think about shopping around the perimeter.
Get a few go-to healthy meals that you cook each week so it is less overwhelming.
Focus on protein! This is what fills you up and gives you energy! Lean proteins and healthy fats!
Low sugar is key!
No seed oils.
For grains and breads!
Use the Bobby Approved app.
Learn to read labels.
Consider food testing to see what you may be allergic or sensitive to.
Buy organic when possible and avoid GMOs.
Eggs & milk- organic and pasture raised
Chicken- organic (pasture raised or free-range even better)

Track what makes you feel great and what makes you feel sluggish or bloated.

Find healthy swaps to things you love - muffins or cookies.
Eat at home more - eat out less.
Bring your own dressings or desserts out with you. Don’t be embarrassed, it’s fun!
