When going to the grocery store, we are faced with endless options of foods and products. This, sometimes, could be tiring and even overwhelming.
What's the right option to buy? How can I know I am making the right decision? Don't fear! Choosing the right product is not as hard as you think. Here are some tips that will help you make the best decision when buying groceries for your family.
Breads and cereals:
• Select breads, cereals, and crackers that are rich in fiber and whole grains and low in saturated and trans fats (for example, whole wheat bagel instead of croissants).
• Prepare pasta with homemade tomato sauce instead of cheeses or cream sauce.
