Grocery store secret: Shop the perimeter

Grocery store secret: Shop the perimeter

Picture your favorite grocery store. Chances are the fresh produce section, the meat and seafood departments, and the dairy case are all located around the perimeter of the store. This is where you should concentrate most of your shopping time. Why? Fresh foods are generally healthier than are the ready-to-eat foods found in the middle aisles. This helps you better control the fat and sodium in your diet.
