A healthy diet begins when we go to the supermarket to make the purchase. It is highly difficult to create nutritious and healthy dishes, if when we buy just look at pre-cooked products or full of sugar and fat. We are going to give you some tips so that you know how to make a healthy purchase, without much headache.
If you do not buy it, you do not eat it
It seems a no-brainer, but buying in a healthy way will make us have a better diet. Most of the products must be fresh to be able to make recipes with a good nutritional value, so it is necessary that in your shopping list you focus on all the primary foods you need.
And there are no whims? There may be, but that way almost imperceptible and in a limited way. Since you are going to sin, try to do it with your head and thinking about what products can bring you more nutrients. That is, some cookies can satisfy you more than a white chocolate bar. Their nutritional values do not have anything similar.
Reading the label will also help you to choose one product or another. In this article we teach you to read the nutritional labels and interpret the list of ingredients.
Here we will detail what else should abound in your shopping cart, according to the nutritional pyramid and focusing on a balanced diet.
- Impresindible. Fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, lean meats, seeds, fish, eggs, whole grains.
- Important. Spices, chocolate 80%, dairy products, frozen vegetables and fruits, coffee or tea, infusions, wholemeal bread, extra virgin olive oil, cheeses, red meats.
- To avoid. Sugar, ultra-processed, refined products, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks, juices, sausages, box cereals, sweeteners, precooked and frozen food, fast food …
Always opt for fresh and seasonal products, so you’ll make sure you’re making a pretty healthy purchase. Always carry a list and stick to it. Of course, do not go to the supermarket hungry or you’ll end up sinning.
