93 – Grocery shopping and eating your veggies

(duration 29:58)In this show we discuss a trip to the grocery store, providing some insights regarding such things as coconut milk, meats, and peanut butter. As far as vegetables go, studies have shown that they’ve declined in micronutrient content over the last few decades. So, don’t skimp on them and preferably look for slightly healthier versions at farmers’ markets. In the grand scheme of weight loss, though, nearly any veggies will be beneficial (as opposed to processed foods), and there’s more need to focus on less carbs and healthy fats. More nutrients can be gotten from many vegetables when they are cooked (e.g., steamed, boiled, or microwaved).
