Congratulations, you have made the decision to start eating healthier and remove and replace poor dietary choices with a healthier choice. The next important step is getting those healthier items into your grocery cart and into your cabinets. This is where many people fall short, get frustrated and give up.
Making educated guesses about the food you eat is tougher than ever these days. New products that tout healthy, quick-to-make, local and organic are continuously showing up in grocery aisles around the country. Making solid and safe choices is a challenge for even the savviest of food shoppers.
