Maybe after food journaling and a pantry audit, you may have noticed you gravitate towards the same foods. While there’s nothing wrong with routine, it could be fun to try new healthy foods. It’s also better to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables so you can get as many different nutrients as possible. If you’re looking to break out of your routine, or just try some new things, here are a few tips to get new produce or a new pantry staple in your rotation.
Try a New Environment
Where do you get most of your food? A particular grocery store or farmer’s market? Do you find yourself going to the same aisles and getting the same thing from week to week? Mix it up and go to a new place. This can be small, like going to a new aisle or section of the grocery store, to something bigger like going to a different grocery store or farmer’s market in your area. Check Local Harvest to see when and where the closest farmer’s market is to you. If you already go to a farmer’s market, try different stalls that carry different foods than your weekly haul. Or, try a completely different farmer’s market! Sellers vary from market to market, pushing you out of your comfort zone and into some new foods.
