Keep an ongoing shopping list at home to take with you. Choose a few recipes from a healthy cookbook and jot down the needed ingredients. Shop every week to make sure your kitchen is well stocked. Never shop an empty stomach. The fatty snacks and sweet foods look a lot more appealing when you are starving! Visit the outer parameter of the store first. That's where you'll find the basic fresh foods. Breads, fruits, vegetables, milk products, lean meat, chicken, and fish are all found on the outskirts ("shop the walls"). Buy enough to freeze breads, bagels, low-fat muffins, flour tortillas, berries and light frozen dinners for those nights that you can't put a meal together.
