Quick, Smart, & Healthy Grocery Shopping

Quick, smart, and healthy grocery shopping for busy horse grooms

Grooms have limited time – or none at all – to go grocery shopping. And when they go, they are in a rush, often hungry and tired. Kimberly Maloomian shares tips to avoid impulse buys and bad choices.

Make a List!

“Make a list before you go to the store. I’m sure people have told you this before. If you go to the store hungry or in a rush, you will make impulse buys. Be organized and have a plan, and then you will cruise through the store with ease.” 

The Logistics Inside the Grocery Store

“Remember that produce and anything cold is typically on the outside walls of the store; go there first and make a pass around to gather your items. Then hit up the few aisles in the middle that have nonperishable foods worth eating like nuts, prepackaged tuna, dried fruits, peanut butter, etc.”

Healthy Options When Staying in a Hotel, Truck, or Camper

“A few healthy options that work well in a hotel or truck in Europe or in a camper environment are vegetable platters, eggs, cocktail shrimp and frozen vegetables. Eggs and frozen vegetables can be cooked in the microwave if you don’t have a stove top, and cocktail shrimp is already cooked and ready to go. Eggs and shrimp are great sources of protein, and all involve almost zero cooking ability. Vegetable platters usually come with some kind of dip, or you can get a container of hummus, tzatziki or guacamole to go with them.” 

Deli Counters

“You can get some great things these days at deli counters. Please pass by the fried items (as they aren’t as healthy), and find the precooked chicken breasts or roasted eggplant that you can reheat in the microwave, as well as salads and soups. All would be great options to stock your hotel fridge with and then just reheat.”
