I’ll admit, I actually love to go to the grocery store and buy healthy foods, so I wanted to share with you some of the top things you should never buy at the grocery store.

Many people actually hate shopping for food.

I don’t understand this, but do understand why.

Most of the time, buying food can seem like a dent in the budget, take up too much time and thought, and just generally get in the way of people’s schedules.

Therefore, many people pick up unhealthy convenience options because they just want to hurry up and leave.

The grocery store markets to impulsive customers and uses processed, convenience foods to do so.

They’re on the end of every aisle, corner and even at the checkout line.

Keep these 11 things you should never buy at the grocery store out of your cart, and you’ll be well ahead of the game.

Don’t forget to be sure to pick up some healthy options instead.

1. Frozen Meals

Frozen Meals

Frozen meals are one of the top things you should never buy at the grocery store.

Frozen meals are packed with sodium, chemicals, preservatives, unhealthy fats, refined sugars and refined grains.

Even some organic options can have too much sodium or fat.

Don’t buy diet foods either, which may be low in calories but are high in sodium, and not enough food to fill you up.

Buy frozen foods such as plain frozen chicken, frozen fish, plain frozen veggies, plain frozen fruits and base your meals off these foods instead of frozen prepared meals.

2. Vegetable Oils

Vegetable Oils

Vegetable oils such as canola, soy, peanut, vegetable oil and safflower oil are all high in unhealthy Omega 6 fats.

These oils are also one of the top causes for weight gain, diabetes, heart disease and inflammation.2

Along with vegetable oils, don’t buy vegetable oil spreads that are often marketed as diet butter alternatives.

Stick to extra virgin olive oil, flax oil, coconut oil and organic grass fed-butter and coconut butter, which are far better options than the processed stuff.
