HG takes a new approach to pocket grocery guides
on October 11, 2011
If you were looking for the usual grocery pocket guide with endless lists of brand name foods with calorie/carb/protien/fat counts - this is not it. This is a totally different type of guide.
HG goes aisle by aisle, food by food and explains in a paragraph or more why she recommends a particular brand or type of food. Let's start with the first section which is all about Dairy products. She explains the difference between reduced fat, low fat and no fat cheeses, milk and yogurts and offers the top HG recommendations for which ones to buy. She also covers pudding desserts and dessert toppings in this section.
The grocery aisle sections are as follows:
Meat and Seafood
Frozen Meals and Meal Starters
Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts
Sauces, Salad Dressing and Shelf Stable Condiments
Baking Products, Pantry Staples, Spices and more
In the back of the book there are a few more sections that are typical HG recommendations:
HG Top Ate Items worth ordering online
Complete HG Supermarket List
Thankfully the book has an index so you can easily find any food item you want to read about. If you have followed her newsletters religiously and watched her show - especially the section when she is walking the grocery store, then you have seen it all before.
I recommend this book for die hard HG recipe lovers who like all their HG tips and tricks neatly packed into one book.
