Diets: Decoding the Mystery

As January continues on, so does the hunt for the perfect diet.

There are so many diet plans out there today and we often get questioned on which is the best one.

Most dietitians will recommend that the best diet is one you can follow long term and is balanced.  After all, if you want long term results, you need long term changes!

Can a price tag improve your life?

A price tag? Really? A price tag simply tells us what we can expect to pay for an item, right? At our stores a price tag really can improve your life. Let us show you how…

NuVal Scores

  • A food scoring system that ranks foods 1-100
  • The higher the score, the better the nutrition
  • These tiny numbers on the left hand side of the price tag help you trade up to better for you foods.
  • A third party company assigns the scores
  • It’s like a credit score-  It summarizes all the good and not so good into one simple number

Health Tags

We’d love to know how you’ve used NuVal or the Health Tags in our stores.

Build a Better Basket Expo

Can you believe that the New Year is upon us? 

2015 is here and as it arrives, many people make New Year’s resolutions.  One of the most common types of resolutions involves losing weight, eating healthier, dieting, exercising more, or something similar. 

One thing dietitians often recommend is to make slow and steady changes to help meet these goals.   Be adventurous and try new things.  Learn to build a better basket. 

When focusing on choosing “healthy items” many people assume they will not be very tasty and are hesitant to try new items for fear of not liking the product. 

Our Build Better Basket Expo at Market Street can help you learn about some better choices.  Come sample some of these items at your local Market Street on January 10th and 11th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m..  What a great way to start a New Year!  Hope to see you there!
