Grocery Store Decisions

If you’re serious about taking your health into your own hands there are a few videos that you should watch. Thanks to a rather insightful conversation with my sister-in-law, I found out about the following videos:

Each of these movies takes a different look at what we eat, the food industry and our health. This is not a review of those movies this is about how those movies have affected me.

Changing Attitude towards Grocery Shopping

I used to enjoy food shopping. That began to change the more I learned about food, health and how our food was processed. Learning about ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, trans fats and hydrogenated oils made grocery shopping a chore. My shopping trips took twice as long because I spent half the time reading the ingredients on the labels.

Food shopping became a constant conflict between following my gut and succumbing to outside pressures. If I didn’t buy the less than healthy items and stock them in my household, the kids would eat it over at a friends house and come home spewing forth the glory of the chemically laden food.Grocery Shopping Cart

I can’t blame my kids, their friends, the manufacturers or the advertising. I must blame myself for not standing strong in my convictions. I allowed outside influences to dictate my grocery shopping habits. I ignored my inner voice.

Inner Voice on Megaphone

With each movie I watched, my inner voice got louder as if it were handed a megaphone. By the time I was through with the movies I felt a sense of freedom. I decided to allow my inner voice to dictate what I purchase at the grocery store. I’m taking back my power, my groceries and my health.

If you had a similar tug of war at the grocery store, I suggest you view at least one of the above movies. It will help you with your grocery decision-making process.

PS: To view the movies I signed up for a trial Netflix account. The first 30 days are free. If you decide to keep it, the basic membership is $7.99 a month. If you don’t keep it, cancel before the 30 days are up and you pay nothing.
