Grocery Store Tour

Grocery and Health Food Store Tours

It's incredibly easy to feel overwhelmed by the variety of food products available now days and even harder to know which ones are actually good for you. On top of that, every new diet is telling you something different!  Healthy eating and grocery shopping have become daunting and confusing tasks, and they don't have to be.


I remember feeling so overwhelmed when I first started shopping in health food stores and eating more healthily. It was an experience that left me feeling uncertain and intimidated. Which is why my goal is to help remove this stress for you by meeting you at the grocery (or health food) store of your choice and helping you shop.  Aisle by aisle, I will help you make better food choices, show you how to read labels, introduce new ingredients, pick out healthy on-the-go options, answer your food and nutrition questions, and provide grocery shopping and meal planning tips.



Some of the things you will learn during this session:

  • Where you should begin your shopping (which aisles) and why

  • Healthier options within each food category: e.g. which breads are better and why

  • Is organic food better and why?

  • Top 10-20 food items that we should try to eat organic and why

  • How to read labels on packaged foods

  • Alternatives to artificial sweeteners and the reason why you should stop consuming them

  • What are the best foods for detoxification

  • Which oils are better for cooking and which ones for dressing salads

  • Butter or margarine? White bread or whole grains? Table salt or pink salt? NutraSweet or Stevia?

  • Are there any other sources of calcium besides milk?

  • And any other questions you may have! 


The grocery store tour is approximately an 1.5 hrs in length and can take place at the grocery or health food store of your choice (within the Ottawa area). 


Cost: $100 (or can be included in the 6 month program as one of the twelve sessions)

If you keep good food in your fridge, you will eat good food.
