How Healthy People Shop

Putting It All Together
Once our astute shoppers get all their goodies home, they keep preparation pretty basic: a piece of grilled tilapia with citrus glaze, a vegetable, a salad and maybe a side of bulgar wheat is a typical dinner at Katz’s house. Lipski likes to make brown rice and dal, an Indian lentil dish, which takes less than 30 minutes if she puts everything in to soak in the morning.

Stir-fries are also popular with this group — as are most simple dishes that allow high-quality ingredients to do the work for them. It really doesn’t have to be more complicated than that, Lipski says. “We are so spoiled with such an amazing variety of beautiful foods. Just take a few deep, relaxing breaths and enjoy the experience.”

What if all the energy the plants put into fruit and seed production was instead just juice placed into a pitcher plant. This idea is further elaborated in the following site...

Really interesting. Seeing a lot of habits similar to my own, so good to know I'm doing something right, though I prefer to buy from farmer's markets and health food shops.
Thanks =)

I hit up the farmers market once a week to get local produce. I don't buy disposable plastic anymore and bring my own mesh bags for produce. There are quite a few items even in the produce section at the supermarket that I cant buy. I have to go to a cheese shop to get my cheese wrapped in paper, and a butcher if I choose to buy meat (although I'm cutting down on both drastically) I want to eat healthy but a lot of healthier options still use too much packaging.

That all sounds great but I'm not sure that great-looking fruits and vegetables on stalls are grown without pesticides and are as healthy as they look.

Sounds like tips for a healthy lifestyle not just the brain! Good reminders.

Interesting. The article is really only focused on rheumatoid arthritis.

Such a great article! Not sure why my page is loading so slow though :(

I've been trying Greek yoghurt and cumin, so now I'll add these two bacteria and hopefully get good…
