Grocery List Breakdown: Shop for healthy carbs, fats, and proteins.

Happy Wednesday! See below a small list of items I tend to always buy at the grocery store. These are all foods that are healthy choices of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins that will provide you with high nutritional content and satiety value. These products are quality sources of nutrition. Remember quality > quantity. The higher the nutritional value, the longer you stay satisfied, the less you feel inclined to over eat and snack 🙂

Try to make every one of your meals contain a carbohydrate, a healthy fat, and a protein source. That is a balanced plate.
