BetterU 2014 – Week 3

Thank you for making a commitment to a BetterU!

Better U

Welcome to week 3 of the BetterU Challenge! (New here or want to find out more about this program? Jump back to the week 1 information here!)

Week 3

This week we took a virtual tour of the grocery store, one of my favorite sessions! I remember learning so many things when I set out on my nutrition education, it was mind boggling! Lot’s of myth-busting that’s for sure, there is a lot of mis-information out there, as well as old habits (remember when the old standard margarine was supposed to be good for us – like I said, it is one molecule away from being plastic, it was developed to quickly fatten up turkeys for slaughter. Not for us.) I hope I brought some awareness of some of the wonderful healthy products at the store you may have never noticed, plus some of my favorite budget friendly items as well. If you would like to access my PDF version of the talk, click here and enjoy!

For those of you following along at home you can access tons of information from the American Heart Association about making your shopping trips healthier and stocking your home with delicious foods that will help you live heart-healthier! Click here to be taken to the American Heart Association page focusing on Heart Healthy Grocery Shopping tips. To learn more about reading labels click here.

The week 3 handout is also available for download here.

In class the participants are sharing some of their new found workouts, recipes and workout buddies! They are continuing to log their food choices (healthy or not), exercise and any feelings they are having. Each week the goal is to implement one new healthy change. Hopefully this week with the healthy shopping information you can implement more than 1!

Happy  Shopping!
