Day 80- Nutrition Bite

Eating healthy at convenience stores:
  • Convenience stores are stocked with unhealthy food choices but look for fruits and vegetables. 
  • Look for single-serving whole grain breakfast cereals and low-fat milk. 
  • Protein bars can make a good meal substitute, but watch out for extra sugar and calories--read the labels. 
  • Substitute 100% fruit juices for soda. 
  • 'Search' is the key when shopping in convenience stores because healthy foods are hard to find!

Sugar Preacher's Experience

I just traveled across the country from the east to the west coast and stopped at gas stations frequently. Prior to departure, I purchased healthy snacks at Trader Joes minimizing the purchase of foods from the convenience stores. However, I did purchase a sugar-free crystal light drink. The aspartame and all the other added ingredients tasted disgusting. When you eat a whole food diet, other products can taste like chemicals.
