Shopping for food can either be a fun adventure or a treaded task. If you find yourself pressed for time, confused by the latest diet trend, or just overwhelmed by the vast amount of products lined up on the aisles, you definitely fall in the latter.
Thank fully, we’ve enlisted the assistance of famed celebrity trainer Amy Rosoff Davis, whose clients include Selena Gomez, Emma Roberts, and Taylor Schilling, to help us navigate through the supermarket maze. Take notes, because here are 6 things you should always buy at the grocery store.
"Cucumbers are refreshing, delicious, low-calorie and full of skin-friendly minerals and vitamins—the Persian varietal is smaller and sweeter than the larger ones. I love to dip them in tahini, drizzle with olive oil and Maldon salt, or slice them and marinate in rice wine vinegar, mirin (a Japanese sweet rice wine), sesame seeds, a dash of sesame oil and Bragg liquid aminos
"I love snacking on fresh local veggies—especially carrots. Whether consumed raw or roasted, carrots are delicious and full of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants, plus they help lower cholesterol. I love to use them in the base of soups and sauces, and cooked with olive oil, herbs and Maldon salt."
"Celery is crunchy, refreshing and full of water. I use celery in everything from chicken salad to soup, and it's also great to snack on—it pairs well with peanut butter."
"I eat half an avocado almost every day. Whether you put it in a salad, on a sandwich, mashed as guacamole or even sliced with your eggs, it is a delicious, versatile food that has a ton of vitamins, minerals and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Avocados are good for your skin, help you absorb vitamins, can aid in weight loss ... the list goes on."
"I use fresh-squeezed lemon constantly to add flavor to everything from water to salad dressing to grilled fish. Lemons are the most alkalizing food, which means they balance acids in your body and restore your pH level—they also aid in digestion and detoxification, contain a high amount of vitamin C (which helps with anti-aging) and clean your liver and bowels, among other things."
“Finally, a sport hydration beverage made for people that care about their body. HALO Sport is the most wonderful and healthy drink on the market both for the rigorous worker outer and the light yoga or pilates fan.”
