Ten Items to Scratch Off Your Grocery List

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

This article from Homemakers.com gives a list of foods that you should not buy for your family when going to the grocery store and their reasons. They also provide healthy alternatives. This is their list of no-nos.

  • Soft Drinks
  • Potato Chips
  • Fruit-Flavoured Drinks
  • Donuts
  • Bacon
  • Pre-packaged Lunch Kits (i.e. Lunchables)
  • Ramen Noodles
  • Chicken Nuggets
  • Canned Lunchmeats (i.e. Spam)
  • Meat Pies

Seeing a list like this makes me want to eat those things. I agree with all the reasons that they are items that one should avoid, but I still want to eat some Spam now. It’s very rare when I crave an item on this list, but seeing them all here together makes me think about them. I prefer articles that tell me all the great and delicious stuff I CAN eat.

    Oh, you have such a good point. I much prefer hearing what I can eat than what I can’t. Thank you for your vegetable tips. I now like California sushi rolls. yay! So, I have one quick, healthy alternative. Other than that, I’ve been feeling like eating corn dogs, licorice, chips loaded with trans fats, etc.

    I find your informations to be informative but I must ask, How do I stop the cravings for fatty foods and quick meat that has been processed. I live on a budget and do not have alot to choose from.It appears that prices are not fixed when it comes to fresh foods at my grocery store. I am wheelchair bound and it is difficult for me to cook meals constantly,not to mention that I am the worst cook ever Can you tell me what is the best foods that I can afford and stay healthy doing it?
