Eating better by shopping well: what’s in your cupboard?

“…research shows that even when we’re actively feeding ourselves, most of us are not doing a very good job of it. We’ve gotten used to those cheap and gigantic restaurant servings, so we’re using the super scoop at home more often. We’re busier, so we’re buying more quick-and-easy processed items and less fresh food. We’re eating in front of the TV more, so we’re cramming down more foodunconsciously while we’re distracted by our shows. In fact, you could argue that a lot of the problems Americans have with their eating habits are due to unconscious habits, rather than that they’ve made conscious choices in spite of their better dietary judgment.”
