Grocery Store Tours

A grocery store tour is a hands-on education session where we take our clients out of the clinic and into the real world. You will meet at a grocery store and walk through what a healthy shopping trip looks like, aisle-by-aisle. This is a great chance to share our brand favorites, introduce you to new foods and teach you shopping tips to simplify your life. Sessions are typically one-on-one, or a group of up to 3 individuals.


What To Expect

Start in the produce section: We emphasize color and introduce clients to new produce items they might not typically gravitate towards. We teach them about diversity and offer strategies to incorporate a wider variety of plants.

Walk the perimeter: We review meats, grains, and dairy making suggestions based on clients’ unique needs. Teaching clients how to get most of their ingredients from one store will make shopping super simple for them and increase compliance around healthy changes.

Head to the bulk section: We discuss nuts, seeds, dried legumes and teach clients how to select a good quality cooking oil.

End in the aisles: We discuss label reading, ingredient lists, and share our favorite healthy snack brands. We ensure clients have some pre-made options to save them time during the week.

Label reading is one of my favorite parts of the tour because so many people have an idea of what to focus on when they read a label, but fail to truly read it through. They make sure the item is the lowest in fat, or only look at sugar – rather than looking at fiber, protein, or healthy fat. The ingredient list is where I spend a lot of time, showing clients what types of ingredients to look for, what they should watch for, and what some of those lengthy, confusing ingredients really are. Again, knowledge is power in the grocery store and I want clients to feel empowered when they come up against misguided claims or hidden ingredients.
