    As a general rule, your healthiest foods are the ones around the outside of the store. The center of the store is mostly processed foods, foods that aren't as healthy.

    There's a really neat book called "Eat This, Not That!" that I use to do my grocery shopping for all of the "middle of the store" foods. Mostly I buy produce, skim milk, eggs, plain yogurt, Campbell's Select soups, canned veggies, frozen fruits and veggies.

    Check out that book. It'll give you some good ideas. A good rule of thumb is that the less processed it is, the healthier it is. If it grows or was alive, it's good for you.
