Grocery Shopping for Special Diets
Grocery shopping for special diets can be a challenge. To make it easier, check the store for special diet items and make a list of items needed. Compare the list against the store's inventory, making a note of any items that are not available. Look for special offers, discounts, seasonal items, organic and locally sourced products, and items that are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, low in sugar, sodium, fat, and calories, as well as high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Additionally, look for items fortified with probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, plant-based proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and vitamins and minerals.
