Living a healthy lifestyle through exercise and diet are very important to me, so when I was asked to give Simple Nutrition, a new online personal nutrition tool for Safeway, Tom Thumb and Randalls grocery chain a try, I was thrilled. The program is developed by registered dietitians to help make it easy to shop for products that fit your nutritional needs.
It is so easy, you simply sign-up, sign-in and tell it what you need or want and the tool gives you food choices based on your criteria. You make your choices, create your list, and then go shopping.
Armed with my list, I was ready to shop! First stop was fresh veggies and fruits, my favorite place in the store.
I love this stuff.
I can’t drink regular milk, so non-dairy almond is my choice.
Love myself some greek yogurt.
I’m trying to reduce the sugar in my diet and this cereal has less of it.
I put some of those fresh veggies together to make these awesome dishes. I roasted the veggies in the oven once, but used them twice in two different recipes. Dish one was roasted veggies served on top of creamy polenta with chopped kale, dish two, an open-faced sandwich served with romaine and spinach salad.
My overall thoughts about this program is that it’s a great tool to help anyone meet their nutritional goals, and that ‘s a Marvelous thing.
