Healthy Eating: Grocery Haul Video from Whole Foods

Hello loves! For a while now I have wanted to introduce a healthy eating/lifestyle portion into the blog. This is something that I enjoy learning about as much as shopping and fashion and it is a big part of my life since I drastically changed my eating and work out habits in January. I have never ever been an unhealthy person, but I come from a family of restauranteurs and foodies. My father owns restaurants and he has always taken me and my family to the best restaurants all over the world. I love food and I love to cook, but one thing I had to realize and face is that food is just food. It is fuel for your body. Yes it is okay to indulge every now and then - you better believe when I move back home I am having a steak from our steakhouse with steak fries and anything else I want. I am not lucky to be one of those people that can eat whatever I want. I really have to watch my weight and workout consistently to be where I want to be. I have lost 20 lbs since January and I am so happy. I still enjoy life, I cheat on the weekends and I still drink (no way in hell I would ever give that up)

But anyway - here is a sneak peak into what I buy at the grocery store. Whole Foods is amazing but it tends to be on the pricier side. I usually shop at either safeway or trader joes for most of my protein and vegetables.
A good thing that my trainer taught me is to not buy ANY bad food at the store - that way when you crave something bad - well... you don't have anything bad to eat! haha. Some good healthy snacks are roasted unsalted almonds, lowfat string cheese, hummus, hard boiled eggs, greek yogurt, and fruit like apples and bananas.
