It’s important to note that this is not intended to be a complete grocery list. Nor is it a prescribed diet. Instead, this is a list of foods that make up a generally healthy diet.
With that out of the way, let’s look at the 16 foods on the healthy grocery list.
First on the list is produce. For one it’s the first thing you see when you walk in the grocery store. But the produce section is the best place to find healthy foods.
1. Leafy Greens
These vegetables are some of the most nutrient-dense foods available. Such as romaine lettuce, spinach, and kale. On top of that, they have very few calories. So you can eat as much as you like!
2. Mixed Veggies
In addition to greens, it’s good to add different colored vegetables. For instance, carrots, peppers, and broccoli (also green, but still very nutritious). That way you get a variety of vitamins and minerals in your diet.
