I Page 12- Thursday, August 7, 2003 UW Extension By Vicki Hayman, University Extension Educa- tor Shopping solutions for healthful eating Consumers today have many choices when it comes to food, especially at the grocery store. With over 30,000 items and numerous brand names, how does one go about choosing foods that are enjoyable, af- fordable and that provide proper nutrition? Here are some supermarket shopping solutions to help select the most nutritious food options in all aisles of the store easily and quickly. Before you head out to the supermarket, take the time to make a list. It will save you time, money and headaches. I. What's to eat this week? List out meal ideas for the week, keeping in mind which days you'll have time to cook from scratch and which days you'll be pressed for time to put dinner on the table. If you plan for pizza one night, shop for salad, milk and fruit to bal- ance out the meal. 2. Organize the list. As you create your shopping list, check your menu options against the Food Guide Pyra- mid to ensure you've remem- bered everything from poultry to produce. This will help en- sure you are purchasing a va- riety of foods that provide all of your nutrient needs. 3. Beyond the basics. Don't forget snacks! Everyone enjoys a little boost between meals, so stock the kitchen with nu- tritious, great tasting options such as low-fat popcorn, nuts and pretzels. THE STRATEGY • Don't go grocery shopping when you are hungry. Leave the decisions to your head, not your stomach. It's easier to stick to the list if you are not hungry, so plan to make sure to eat something before you go. • Set a routine. Establish a day and time that makes it easy for you to move quickly and easily through the store and stay focused on your shop- ping needs. • Save Money. Coupon clip- ping or finding stores that price match are great strate- gies for saving money. Cou- pons are also a great way to ex- pand your food choices. Use a coupon to experiment with a new meal item that you wouldn't normally purchase. • Kids in tow? An enjoyable grocery shopping experience with children is possible1 Use it as an opportunity to give your kids a lesson in color, smell and names of new foods. En- gaging them in the food selec- tion can turn a trip to the store into a great teaching tool about nutritious food choices. THE LABELS The Food Label can be a consumer's best shopping tool. You can compare nutrients and ingredients between similar products; determine which nu- trients the food contributes to your total diet, safe prepara- tion methods and much more. KNOW THE TRICKS OF THE TRADE,. Knowing how to shop and what to look for in each aisle/ section of the store helps guarantee a cart stocked with healthful products. Here are a few simple tips to help you ace the aisles: • Produce: Since fresh pro- duce doesn't last very long, buy or~ly the amount youql eat over a few days. And, remem- ber, frozen fruits are a great, longer-lasting option. • Meat, fish, chicken, tur- key, eggs: Get your protein! These foods are sources of high-quality protein. Stock up on meat, fish and chicken, es- pecially%vhen they are on sale. And don't forget the eggs[ • Milk, cheese, and yogurt: Call the dairy case Calcium Central. If you don't stop here, your diet may be short on cal- cium. Including low-fat milk, yogurt and cheese in your diet is an easy way to get your rec- ommended intake. • Frozen: The frozen foods aisle is a great place for con- venient, nutritious food choices for any meal occa- sion--breakfast, lunch, din- ner--and even dessert. • Bread, Cereal, Pasta, Rice: Your choices within this food group can make the difference between a high fiber diet and a low-fiber diet. Opt for whole- grain products whenever pos- sibld--such as whole-grain breads, cereals, pasta and brown rice--to boost your fiber intake. • Legumes, lentils, nuts: There is a wide variety of le- gumes, both dry and canned, "WHERE THE KID GOT HIS NAME" The Sundance available in the supermarket.
