Check Yourself After The Grocery Checkout

Have you ever gotten home from the grocery store thinking that you had made healthy choices and then suddenly when you unpack your bags you realize that you done exactly the opposite much to your chagrin? Don't be upset. Fix the problem. Next time when you get home follow these steps:

1. Locate your receipt
2. Get 3 different colored highlighters
3. Mark up your receipt as following


For every fresh food that you purchase including vegetables, or fresh fish


to note the "not so healthy" products that you purchased such as cookies, pizza, cupcakes, or crackers


For those "in between" foods that are good for you, but packaged such as brown rice or low fat yogurt.

Your receipt should be mostly blue or pink. If its not 60-75% Blue or Pink, take the receipt with you the next time that you go shopping and it will remind you to make great choices and to not repeat the same mistakes!
