Your Food Environment Matters

If you’re like most Americans, the never-ending stream of ultra-processed, highly palatable foods that define our modern food supply have hijacked your taste buds. And it is no wonder – 71% of the foods available in the grocery store are ultra-processed, typically with added fats, sugars, sodium, and chemical flavor additives that readily stimulate the parts of our brains that create cravings and food addiction. Thus why this Healthy Costco Foods List is so valuable!

What’s more, the food industry invests heavily in employing teams of scientists to guide them in producing processed foods that don’t readily fill us up (because the more you eat the more money they make) AND that take sinful advantage of our palate’s innate love of sweet and fatty foods. Yes, they purposely dial in flavor to create what they call the bliss point: the point at which the addictive powers of a food crescendo.

But have no fear! Fortunately, our sense of taste is highly malleable. This means that your taste buds can be coaxed into loving the simple and less intense flavor profiles typical of the healthiest foods: Mother Nature’s disease-busting foods, like vegetables, fruits, beans and whole grains. And the Healthy Costco foods I am sharing are perfect for giving your taste buds a healthy makeover.

If you make a commitment to incorporate a few key practices into your daily diet (taking advantage of this list is a great start), you too can reach the “ultimate goal” of healthy eating as a way of life. In time, I know from experience that you will truly crave and seek out super-healthy real foods like leafy greens, beans, dark chocolate, and berries, and simultaneously lose your desire for sweets and the other processed foods we now know trash our health.
