When it comes to buying healthy groceries, it can be easy to be misled by nutrition labels and packaging claims shouting things like "multigrain" and "all-natural," tricks meant to convince us to buy unhealthy products masquerading as good-for-you grabs.

Luckily, FitSugarTV has some fool-proof tips for healthy grocery shopping. A good rule of thumb is to shop the outer walls of the grocery store first; that's where you'll usually be able to fill up your cart with fresh produce before hitting the aisles of packaged foods.

Speaking of packaged picks: Look for labels with less than five ingredients, all of which you should be able to pronounce.

Watch the video above for more tips about picking the right veggies and meats, as well as the whole grains and fish you aren't eating, but should!
