4 Amazing Tips for Healthier Grocery Shopping

These days, grocery shopping is a regular task that you need to do once a week or every other week. But when a hectic schedules gives you little time to plan, you might end up with more unhealthy choices when you’re shopping for groceries.

Here are seven tips that are guaranteed to improve your experience when shopping for more healthy groceries:

1. Choose a place that’s clean and well-supplied.

When grocery shopping, the first thing you should be on the lookout for is spoilage. Products that are past their expiry date or look spoiled are ones that you should definitely avoid. This can also extend to items that don’t always show obvious signs of spoilage, such as those sealed in cans.

(However, it’s safe to consume products that are close to expiring if you plan on consuming them right away.)

But health and safety doesn’t just end with the groceries – it also extends to the grocery store or supermarket selling them, such as dust on the shelves or anything else that could indicate that the place is not properly maintained.

The good news is that most stores in Singapore are clean and well-supplied to have the items that you need, so that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

2. Check the ingredients for processed products.

Everything from additives, preservatives, and artificial coloring can lurk in your favorite food. While they’re delicious, they can also be really unhealthy for you in the long run.

This means that whenever you find an item that you think would be healthy for you, check its label for its nutritional content and its ingredient list – you’d be surprised at the number of additives you’ll find.

3. Your grocery list is your best friend.

When you’re tempted to buy on impulse because of all the ads, discounts, and promos, you need your grocery list to stick to healthier food choices.

While you’ll have to accept that grocery shopping means spending money, having a list not only allows you a better control of the foods that you need to buy, but it also helps you stick to your budget. This is indispensable especially if you’re seriously looking to save while eating healthy.

4. Take advantage of online shopping.

Supermarkets in Singapore now have websites that allow you to order from the comfort of your own home, which takes away a lot of the stress of having to physically go there yourself. All you need to do is select what items you want to buy and they will show up at your doorstep.

So if you’re too busy, tired (or even just lazy) to leave your home, then online shopping is definitely the choice for you.
