Being a Registered Dietitian has caused me to have a very specific grocery shopping list. I admit that everything that I buy is not always 100% healthy(we all need our treats once in a while), but for the most part, it’s a solid list that will hopefully help others to make better food choices.
Dairy Products and juices:
2% or low-fat cheeses
Low-fat Plain Greek Yogurt
1% or Skim Milk
Almond or Soy Milk
Low-fat frozen Yogurt
Juice with calcium- avoid juices with added sugar or fruit drinks
Eggland’s Best eggs
Liquid Eggs- store brand
Light String Cheese such as Sargento
Light Cream Cheese
$ saving tip: Find a place where milk is the cheapest and buy it there instead of the supermarket.
Health tip #1: Almond milk is a great alternative to milk plus it has vitamins, minerals and is soy, dairy and gluten free. It has a low glycemic index and it is “diabetic friendly”.
Health tip #2: Don’t leave dairy products at room temperature as that increases your risk for food-borne illness.
