5 Grocery Shopping Tips for Healthier Meals
It’s that time of the month! Doing groceries can either be a fun activity or one bore of a chore. It can also be the perfect opportunity to restart your eating habits! But wait, where do you start?
Here we’ve compiled five nifty grocery shopping tips that will help you ease into healthy meals. Keep reading below to learn more!
Use lentils to make more filling meals.
Feasting on CDO Funtastyk Premium Boneless Chicken Tocino is one way to enjoy your protein intake. However, you can also switch it up with some lentils. You might know them in the form of beans and peas, which are high in protein and fiber while low in fat. You can use lentils to make soups even heartier. Filipino cuisine also incorporates lentils in its dishes nicely, such as picadillo, ginisang munggo, and fish with tausi.
Buy in-season greens for veggies.
Have you ever wanted to try a foreign recipe? Most of the time, the ingredients they use are not readily available or cost more than you’d want to. Maybe you can swap the cheese with Danes Cheese Spread, but you’d have to add a hundred pesos for that other vegetable. Off-season veggies are not only more expensive; they’re also not made to last with the current climate. All in all, working with peak season goods is easier to work with and will give you the best bang for your buck.
Surround yourself with healthy snacks.
As the old adage goes: out of sight, out of mind. If you want to stay committed to healthy eating, you need to make an effort to banish all unhealthy snacks. Graze on nuts, pretzels, or even some veggies with Danes Cheese Sweet & Creamy-infused dip instead.
Go for hardier vegetables.
Some items are just made to last longer. Whether you’re looking to cook sides for your CDO Karne Norte or just want regular consumption, hardy veggies like potatoes, yams, and carrots can go for weeks and stay fresh as long as you store them properly. They are also versatile enough to be used in healthier meals! Isn’t that nice?
Stock on canned goods in bulk.
Preserved food like canned meats is a grocery staple in every household because of its shelf-stable features. Healthier varieties such as San Marino Premium Yellowfin Tuna Belly in Olive Oil have become widely available across the market as well. If you’re new to eating healthy, start slow and easy by using canned goods in the meantime.
Here at CDO, we believe that there’s nothing quite like delicious food that tastes like home. Still, convenience and nutrition can also go hand-in-hand along the way. Nurture your body and soul today with these grocery hacks on your next supermarket visit!
