We’ve all been there. It’s Wednesday evening, there’s nothing in the fridge, and you’re hungry. You decide to do a quick run to the store to pick up some food; you'll make dinner when you get back. As you're walking through the produce section, you grab an avocado and a bag of spinach...you're feeling pretty healthy. Then you make it to the snack aisle. And the dessert aisle. And the ice cream aisle. By this point, your stomach is rumbling and all bets are off.
Your mind is telling you to get just what you need and what you planned on buying, but your stomach is telling you a different story. Before you know it, your cart is packed with a bunch of snacks and treats. You get home, start putting all the food away, and realize you don’t even have what you need to make dinner tonight. You grab a bag of popcorn and call it a night.
If you'd just followed the nutrition tip of the week, you wouldn't be in this mess!
Never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach.
Never! Don’t do it. Eat something…a cheese stick, a protein bar, ANYTHING before you step foot in that store. It’s amazing how the mind controls our actions when it’s hungry. Take control, make a plan, eat a snack, and grocery shop with confidence.
