Stocking Up At The Supermarket…

I go to the store almost daily – I think for some people, that sounds like an alarming rate. . .but going once a week simply doesn’t work for me.

I go through my food at a rapid pace, but given the quality of it, I’m okay with that (I’m not going to beat myself up for devouring all of my vegetables, whereas if I was mauling bags of potato chips, I might have to second guess my restocking habits!)

The usual suspects:

  • Fresh vegetables
  • Fresh, packaged greens (spinach, mache etc…)
  • Frozen vegetables 
  • Still water 
  • Carbonated water without chemicals (flavoring from natural fruit)
  • Ground chicken (I prefer organic, but sometimes can’t get it)
  • Popcorn (the lightest kind I can find, non-greasy, just a touch of oil and salt.  PERIOD.)
  • Almond milk (unsweetened)
  • Coconut creamer (which I mix with the above)
  • Chia bars (Heath Warrior, chocolate peanut butter)
  • Hummus
  • Organic eggs
  • Egg whites 
  • Nitrate-free sliced turkey 

There are a few other things I pick up, but those are the typical cast of characters.  I think it’s important for us to shop often. . .and NOT to shop hungry.  

Food preparation is always a wonderful thing if you can do it (that can be done once a week, maybe twice – there are fabulous blogs out there specifically dedicated to this, not only for fitness competitors, by the way!)

What kinds of foods duo you buy?  Are you shopping several times a week?  I see the store when the snow comes and I’m always shocked.  *LOL*
