A typical grocery list



Here is what I get each week the thought process for each ingredient.


Grains

- Steel cut oats and roll oats. I usually have oatmeal for breakfast so these are the two grains I get. I also make my own granola with the roll oats so I get a lot of them.

- Rice. This makes up the "carby" part of most of my meals. I sometimes get quinoa but most of the time its rice.


Veggies

- Tomatoes for salads.

- Spinach for salads and smoothies

- Lettuce for salads.

- Bell pepper for roasted peppers

- Cucumbers. These usually sit in my fridge until they rot but I do make an effort to put them in my salad. I have been getting better at that.

- Brocoli for roasted brocoli.

- Carrots either for roasted carrots or making broth.

- Potatoes either for roasted potatoes or making broth.

- Leeks if I plan of making broth.


Fruits

- Oranges

- Bananas

- Pineapple

- Berries

- Frozen berries

These 5 I get every single week from my smoothies or to have in the morning. I'll usually get more fruits in the summer when there is a more selection.


Protein

- Chicken breast

- Frozen cod

- Smoked salmon

- Sardines

I usually do eat red meat unless I am planing a dinner with my girlfriend or with friends.


Dairy

- Feta for salads


Milks

- Oat milk

- Roast all the veggies I want to roast. Cut up the veggies in bite sizes, toss with o
