This month’s Just Get Going tip helps you find the whole foods you need and includes an answer to Peggy’s question: Does eating whole foods mean you have to shop at the store “Whole Foods”?
Changing your diet does not necessarily mean changing your grocery store. That is probably a good thing for those of you who can’t swallow too many changes at once. But, that is probably a bad thing for those of you who were hoping it could be that easy-change stores and change your diet. Sorry to disappoint you. There are whole foods to be found in every grocery store. And there are junk foods to be found in every grocery store as well. The secret is to know what you are looking for and avoid the rest. As a general rule, this means shopping on the perimeter of the store (where you will find the fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy – food from living sources) and avoiding the aisles (where you will find the factory made, processed, enriched food items with labels as long as the box that are full of mystery substances). But, buyer beware, the processed stuff has made its way to the perimeter too, so make sure to stick to the items that don’t need a label to explain what it is. For those of you who need concrete examples: that means don’t buy the tube “yogurts” or the prepackaged lunch items just because they are on the back wall.

Although you can find both junk and real food at all grocery stores, the truth is, all grocery stores are not created equal. Some stores have a larger selection of local, organic produce and pasture-raised, grass-fed, hormone-free meat and dairy products. For those of you interested in having more of these types of local and organic choices at your finger tips, a change of grocery stores is probably a good idea. Or, better yet, get out of the grocery all together and get to a local farmer’s market or a local farm to find the best selection of fresh, locally grown produce and to look for new and exciting products you can’t find in every grocery store, like grass-fed beef dairy products. (My daughter describes her non-homogenized whole milk from pasture-raised, grass-fed beef as “liquid ice cream”). Get to know the farmers that provide the food and talk to them about their farming practice. This endeavor will make you more conscious about and grateful for the food that goes into your body. To find farmers and farmers’ markets in your area, go to www.localharvest.org and enter your zip code. You will be amazed at how many options are available to you.
