Diabetic Grocery Shopping Tip of the Week:

Grocery shopping can be time consuming and frustrating for those with diabetes.  Focus on shopping around the perimeter of the store to choose less processed and more fresh foods (the aisles tend to have less fresh and more processed foods).  Many fresh foods will not have food labels, so follow these tips when shopping:
  • begin with the produce section, choose a variety of colors of fresh whole vegetables and fruits,
  • next stop is the bakery, this can be a tempting area but focus your attention on whole grain breads,
  • move to the meat department and choose seafood, poultry, and smaller amounts of other lean meats,
  • last stop around the perimeter is the dairy section - focus on fat free and low fat milk, cheese, and yogurt.

You are now ready to enter the aisles of the grocery store.  Be cautious of high fat and sodium items found in the aisles.  Select products to complement the foods you have chosen from the perimeter.  Happy Shopping!
