Makeover Monday! Shopping-Cart Makeover
Ever wonder what you need to help make over your diet? I found this small article in Parenting magazine, May 2010 issue.
Eyeball your cart before you hit the checkout line. Is it a sea of boxes and bags--or do you also have stuff for the fridge and fruit bowl? "Aim to fill two thirds of your cart with produce, whole grains, lean meats, beans, and low-fat dairy foods," says Kathy McManus, R.D., director of the department of nutrition at Brigham and Women's Hospital, in Boston. That way, you can't overload on treats and packaged snacks and meals.
