Life is about feeling and living well.

The beginning of a new year is a time when a lot of people push the reset button and resolve to be happier and healthier. Publix is all about health and wellness, but we’re not about completely restricting yourself. We believe life is about balance, and living and feeling well is different for everyone. For some, it means going for an early morning run. For others, it may just be a morning walk. Increasing your physical activity a little bit, watching your portion sizes, or adding more fruits and veggies to your usual recipes are just a few small changes that can have a big impact.

 

Another small change toward achieving balance is shifting your shopping habits. Try these tips to help you make wise selections while shopping the Publix aisles:

In the Bakery, occasionally swap white bread for Whole Wheat Italian Five-Grain Bread for added whole grains, or choose our line of GreenWise breads that contain 100% whole grain wheat and provide 16 grams or more of whole wheat per slice.

In the Produce department, add your favorites to your cart to achieve the MyPlate recommendation that fruits and vegetables cover at least half of your plate at each meal.

 

In the rice and pasta aisle, swap white rice and pasta for brown rice and whole wheat pasta every once in awhile.

In every aisle, look for our Better Choice tags to identify items that have more of the nutrients you need, like fiber, and less of the things you don’t need, like saturated fat, or added sodium, or added sugar.

 

Our monthly Health Center articles are full of helpful information, new tips, and delicious recipes to inspire you to put the focus back on you. However, the best way to stay informed and inspired is to sign up for a Publix.com account and opt in to Health and Wellness information.
