Supermarket Tour with A Registered Dietitian

What is a supermarket tour?

A supermarket tour is a personalized, dietitian-guided grocery education trip. During my grocery store tours, the aisles become our classroom, and there I teach you all about which foods will support your health goals, taste preferences, and budget.

During these tours, I take the complicated science of nutrition and break it down into bite size pieces that you can apply immediately to your menu plan and shopping list. 

Most grocery stores have more than 40,000 food choices – that’s a lot of potential decision-making! Together we sift through the foods available so you can narrow in on foods you love that will support your health.

What will we cover together?


We’ll explore produce items you may have never tried before as well as many standard fruits and veggies that enrich any eating pattern with flavor, fiber, vitamins and minerals.


Well review cuts of meats, plant proteins, seafood, and dairy products to help ensure you’re getting the protein you need in a form that you like. We can discuss cooking methods, safe handling, recipes and storage, too.

Grains, Beans and Carbs

You know eating grains and beans will support your energy needs, but what are all these fancy grains like farro, quinoa and millet? How do I find whole foods? And which ones taste good? I’ll resolve all your questions about carbs and share lots of ideas and recipes.

Fats and Oils

If you’ve ever stared at the sea of choices in the cooking oil section and wondered, “can you use the same oil for cooking as you do for baking and salad dressings?” From extra virgin to cold pressed, I’ve got you covered.

Canned, Frozen and Packaged Foods

We’ll read labels together so that we can demystify the thousands of convenience foods in the center aisles of the store. These aisles contain nutritious foods that can save you time in the kitchen and money on your grocery bill.

What clients are saying about Britt's Supermarket Tours:

I would spend a lot of time thinking about foods I would like to buy, but don't have the knowledge around what to do with them once I got home. I end up wasting a ton of food!!! [Britt and I] walked down the aisles and I told her where I would stop and ponder [unfamiliar] items. She explained to me what they were and how they could be used. I showed her the items I mindlessly put into my cart and asked her to explain the nutritional labels. I needed to be educated on refined sugars, whole grains, proteins and fiber. This information will lead me to make better choices. Britt is amazing! She is patient, thoughtful in her responses and non judgmental.

Supermarket tours are available after an initial visit. During this session, we review your medical history and current lifestyle so that I understand your health needs and goals. This helps us customize your store tour and use our time most effectively.

We also discuss food preferences and allergies or sensitivities. That way we can focus on foods that are aligned with your likes and health needs when we get to the supermarket.

Think about any questions you have about grocery shopping, food selection, and your health goals. Are there foods you haven’t tried but want to?
