Break it Down: Shopping Easy Peazy during COVID-19
Today on Break it Down: Fluent in Wellness we chat with Nutritionist Zonia Phillips about making Shopping Easy Peazy during COVID-19
Nutritionist Zonia Phillips: “To make your shopping day experience as stress free as possible start with a plan
1. Make a shopping list
2. To save money – reduce your purchases of high sugar, high fat and high salt snacks instead get more fruits and veggies
3. Try new recipes especially those ones you have wanted to try for a long time and didn’t have the time. Make sure that all the ingredients that you need are on your shopping list
4. Make some soups and stews, this is one way to use up any wilted vegetables and also soups are a way to stretch your food dollar”
Azania: What about snacking? I feel like I’ve been at the refrigerator all the time since COVID-19 started…what can I do about that?
Nutritionist Zonia Phillips: “We have something for that.
We understand that it is easy to practice random eating now you’re at home. Instead stick to your regular meal times. Also, to make life easier create one day a week a comfort food day…make sure you put on your list all your favourite foods. Make a short list because if you don’t have it you can’t eat it.
You deserve one day a week with all your comfort foods.”
