The best defense is a good offense.
This strategy can be quite useful with many things in life, but have you ever thought about applying it to food shopping? When you step foot into a supermarket, you are immediately bombarded with an overwhelming amount of food choices.
If you aren't equipped with a "good offense", in this case a shopping list, then you might end up succumbing to designed traps imposed by big food corporations.
So, I ask you this. In addition to the shopping list, try to be as mindful as possible when you are making your food choices. Take that extra moment. Take a step back and really try to grasp the fact that the food you eat can either help you or harm you. If you remember that small piece of information, you'll have a much better chance at making the healthier choices.
