Whenever I shop in a grocery store that I’m not familiar with, I really like to walk up and down the aisles. It’s all about finding a new product that will inspire me. I have NEVER seen this brand or product before – have you?
Trying new products is a win-win situation. My opinion on eating mindfully and choosing healthier options is that when you do, it has lasting positive effects. If you never try new products, have different textures or new tastes, then your body (and mind) ends up getting bored and fed up of eating ‘mindfully’ and will look for other things to nibble on. And those nibbles and indulgences that you have every now and then, well, they’ll start to show up more frequently and take over. I think you know what I mean. It’s not about making drastic changes. It could be as simple as trying a new flavor of hummus or buying baby bok choy.
This week for me, it’s a new blend of brown and wild rice. Floating Leaf Fine Foods is a Canadian based company and has a nice product line of different rice blends. I purchased The Sprouted Black Bean, Organic Brown Rice at the Provigo grocery store (NDG) and the company website lists other places where you may purchase it as well. This could very well be the ‘something new’ to add to your grocery list!
New foods = inspiration = loving what you eat = making healthy choices part of your lifestyle
I’d love to hear from you!
