Small Steps to a Healthier You


While at the grocery, you should spend 75% of your time in the perimeters of the store and the bulk of that time in the produce aisle. Image Credit:

For most people, leading a healthy life doesn’t start at the gym; it starts at the grocery store.  Making the decision to eat more real foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs quality meats and fish) and fewer processed, chemical-filled items that merely act like food (they lack nutrients and instead fill you up with calories and stuff that leads to inflammation, high-blood pressure, diabetes, etc.) is what changes lives.  When a person begins eating a diet full of veggies, fruits, lean meats, healthy fats, fish, etc, their bodies will begin changing and they’ll have a lot more energy and self-confidence to not only get more exercise, but to try new things and live life to the fullest.  

So, my challenge to you is the next time you visit the grocery store, buy one real food and mark a processed food you normally buy off your list.   

One small step at a time, we can lead healthier lives!
