10 Grocery Shopping Secrets of Slim Women
Follow these tips and you'll be able to navigate the grocery store aisles as well as any super-fit health nut -- and still eat food that's delicious
Slim women buy snacks -- but not snack foodsSnacking can be a major diet pitfall, but it's unrealistic to keep your cupboards completely bare -- that'll only cause you to end up at a drive-thru. Instead, buy foods that will satiate your cravings without ruining your diet. House admits to having a serious sweet tooth. "I need something sweet after every meal -- even breakfast," she says. Instead of traditional desserts, she buys dates and keeps chocolate chips and cut-up bananas in her freezer. "A lot of it is about knowing yourself," she says. "If I had cookies in the house I would eat them all."
If savory snacks are your weakness, McGee recommends making a batch of hardboiled eggs in the beginning of the week. And both House and McGee always have cooked quinoa on hand. "It's a quick-cooking grain that you can make ahead of time," says McGee. "You can eat for breakfast with cinnamon and blueberries, or make it for dinner with beans, chopped cherry tomatoes, and cilantro."
