I love sound bites as much as the next nutritionist. These are the catchy, easy-to-remember phrases that are meant to make healthy nutrition choices memorable.
A few of my favorites: Eat your colors, consult your gut and eat when you are hungry, not when you are bored.
But there is one sound bite I would like to retire, that is, “Shop the perimeter of the supermarket.” There are great fresh foods on the borders of the store but avoiding the aisles means missing some super staples. Three to consider:.
If I had a magic wand there is one aisle I would change, the candy-loaded checkout line that sends children begging and adults sneaking in one more purchase.
