Keto Grocery Shopping With My 7 Year Old Son
In a recent video that I posted, I shared my experiences exploring a modern Tokyo supermarket while I was traveling, and I was amazed by the variety of ingredients and the cultural differences that I noticed.
This video is very different. This is myself and my eldest son, Christian, shopping in our local supermarket. Christian loves the camera and this was spontaneously inspired by his wanting to be in a video and by the fact that people frequently ask me what kinds of products I buy when I shop, not just for myself but for my family, too.
To tell you the truth, most of my produce comes from the farmers’ market every Saturday morning (a future video perhaps?). This is for a couple of reasons: firstly you can’t find fresher or higher quality produce than directly from the source, and secondly, I believe in supporting local organic farmers in my community.
I would estimate that around 20% of the food in my home actually comes from a supermarket, but nonetheless there are certain items that of we naturally won’t find in a market and some that my son can’t get enough of (and he’ll tell you all about them himself in the video!), so we decided on the spur of the moment to get it on video and to give you an idea of the types of foods we typically gravitate towards when shopping in a grocery store.
I absolutely love the fact that my son loves healthy foods. He was raised on quality foods and his body now naturally craves them. Although, to him they are just tasty foods, he isn’t aware this is a video on health and what to shop for; this is what he actually loves. Trying to get him to stop eating it before we’ve even checked out is another story and always challenging, but the boy has good taste, what can I say!
So I hope you enjoy our little video adventure! And hopefully this will answer some questions about the kinds of foods that are Keto safe and provide some insight. When Christian isn’t trying to break the record of how many seaweed chips he can fit in his mouth at once, there is hopefully some valuable information in here 🙂
Thanks as always for watching and let me know in the comments what you like to buy for yourselves and your families as part of your Keto lifestyle.
Happy shopping, and see you on the next one 😉
