My Weekly Healthy Shopping List / by Laura Scanlon

Hey guys, 

I know how hard it can be when you arrive in the supermarket and see hot cross buns staring back at you, but this is where willpower comes in. A shopping list is the best way to keep you on track. Have it written out physically or in your notes on your phone. Sunday or Monday is the best day of the week to do your shopping to ensure you start off healthy. Being in control of what you buy when food shopping is an important step, as the saying goes "abs are made in the kitchen". It's easy to forget the healthy choices and pick up bold treats so by writing a list and ticking them off as you go is a great way to stay on track.
