Grocery Shopping

How do you do grocery shopping? What’s the strategy? If you don’t have strategy, now is the time. Reduce your trip to grocery stores. Sharing some of my tips which I always do and I am still able to do same.

  • Buy fresh produce, fruits 1st . There are some vegetables, fruits which will stay good for longer on counter , fridge and some fruits need some ripening time.
  • Mix and match. Buy some vegetables like potatoes,sweet potatoes, pepper , carrots , winter squashes that will stay good after a week. Produce that goes bad quickly eat them first. Like spinach and other greens.
  • Oranges , apples etc will last for a while. Berries eat first.
  • Then buy some frozen vegetables. When no fresh produce , you can use them . You still have those root vegetables to eat.
  • Buy beans in a bag not the containers of cooked bins. Cans are for emergency. Raw Beans soaked and cooked makes a lot. Good protein. You don’t need to be vegetarian to eat beans.
  • If you have rice , quinoa, few different flour stored, then you will reduce grocery trips.
  • Try to make bread at home.
  • Shop your pantry . You might find good things that you can eat.
  • Start garden and see what you can grow.
  • These are just some of the ideas. Before heading to the store ,make a list and see you can last longer without going to store. Buy only when you ate up most of the things. We should try zero waste at least for now .
  • Navratri started from today and so I am fasting . It’s modified eating. Lunch was mango and some roasted salt less peanuts.
  • So, what’s your strategy? Think smart if you think you are smart.
  • Follow the guidelines.
