There are two kinds of people: Those who genuinely enjoy shopping for food and those who dread their weekly trip to the grocery store. We totally get it: Whether you're pressed for time, confused by the latest diet trends, or just overwhelmed by the vast amount of products on the shelves, grocery shopping can be seriously daunting.
Thankfully, we have Amy Rosoff Davis, trainer to celebrities including Selena Gomez, Emma Roberts, and Taylor Schilling, to help us navigate the maze that is the supermarket. Ready to take notes? Here are the 6 things you should always buy at the grocery store:
1. PERSIAN CUCUMBERS
"Cucumbers are refreshing, delicious, low-calorie and full of skin-friendly minerals and vitamins," says Amy. The Persian variety is smaller and sweeter than the larger ones. I love to dip them in tahini, drizzle with olive oil and Maldon salt, or slice and marinate them 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 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 or cook them with olive oil, herbs and Maldon salt."
3. ORGANIC CELERY
"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."
4. ORGANIC AVOCADOS
"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 benefits go on and on."
5. ORGANIC LEMONS
"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 hydration beverage made for people who care about their body. HALO is the most wonderful and healthy drink on the market both for the rigorous worker outer and the light yoga or pilates fan.”
