There are two types of people: Those who love grocery shopping, and those who'd prefer to do literally anything else.

But no matter which kind of person you are, navigating the store aisles looking for healthy staple foods that you'll actually want to eat—not looking at you, wilted lettuce—can make you wish you had a personal RD following you around. (And if you fall into the latter camp, it would make the shopping process a lot more satisfying, too.)

Which is why we asked Jaclyn London, MS, RD, CDN, head of nutrition and wellness at WW (formerly Weight Watchers) for the low-down on her grocery-haul habits.

No surprise, she starts with the basics: "My shopping cart reflects my personal food philosophy: more vegetables, more fruit, more often," London says. "Having nutritious ingredients on-hand is honestly one of the simplest, yet significant, steps to establishing an overall healthier pattern of eating."
