Week 24 Grocery List (For Substitutions See bottom of Post)
This grocery list is for my wife & I (Hopefully based on shopping last week you have a better idea about the quantity you need for your family) **Changes from Last Week’s Grocery List are Highlighted in Red** ** Please note that many of these items you still may have from LAST week’s list. Example: Salad Dressing. Only replace items you no longer have. No need to buy more if you still have some. ** Fruits:
2 containers fresh blueberries
1-2 containers fresh raspberries
1 container of fresh strawberries
1 16 oz containers of sliced mushrooms
6-8 Bell peppers of your choosing
6-7 small white onions
1 large containers of spinach
1 large container of a mixed green (dark green) leaf for salads
1-2 large bunches cilantro (optional for omelets but also using it for Sunday night’s recipe)
1 large bunch of asparagus
1 small stalk of celery
2 large bunches of broccoli
Salmon (Fresh or Frozen or ANY kind of fish- between my wife and I we will be using 8 small filets)
Turkey Lunch Meat (We will be using more lunch meat then usual as we’ll be using it as “snacks” some days too)
20 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (small size- If you’re buying larger ones you can reduce this amount)
1 package turkey bacon
Seasoning/Dressings/Condiments (As needed to replace last week’s):
Small Container of Sea Salt
Low Fat/Calorie Salad Dressing (Vinaigrette of your choosing & Raspberry Vinaigrette for Salads)
1 small container of Mayo with Olive Oil
1 small container of sun-dried tomato marinade (or other low sugar marinade of your choosing)
1 small container of Olive Oil
1 large container of salsa (red or green approx. 15-20 oz).
1 container of chicken broth (approx. 1 ½ cups will be needed)
Almonds (Many brands make different flavored almonds like sea salt, chile lime, etc. Any flavors are fine)
Protein Bars (LOW CARB/SUGAR, HIGH FIBER BARS. Be careful on this one to review the nutritional facts on the back of the box. Many protein bars have high sugar content. Right now my wife and I use Quest Protein Bar)
1 Small bag of Pumpkin Seeds
1 container of Eggs and a jug of Egg White Substitute (Or just Egg White Substitute if you prefer)
Unsweetened Almond Milk
Zero Calorie Butter Spray
Peanut Butter (be careful on this one too. You’ll want to find a quality “natural” peanut butter brand. These will have better oils for your body then normal peanut butter brands)
Packets of naturally sweetened lemonade or strawberry lemonade flavored powder
1 can Pumpkin Puree
1 container of cinnamon
1 small container/jar of nutmeg
1 small container of vanilla extract
1 box of Stevia packets (or Splenda or Truvia OK substitutes)
1 package of low calorie brown sugar
Substitutes and/or Further Recommendations
Feel free to substitute the fruits for other fruits you enjoy more: ie. Peaches, pears, etc. However, you will need the bananas for the spinach shake.
Feel free to substitute the vegetables for different vegetables you (or your family) prefer. Also, if cost is a huge issue and you don’t feel like you can afford fresh vegetables then buy frozen. It’s better to have frozen vegetables then none at all, though it’s always preferred to steam vegetables when possible).
If it’s necessary for you to eat processed carbs stay away from ones with: High Sugar, Sodium, and saturated fats. SO STAY AWAY FROM THOSE THREE S’s!!!
Try to drink enough WATER so that you have at least one clear urination a day
Prepare your meals in ADVANCE! I cannot stress this enough. I will discuss this is greater detail starting day one on my journey back to Fit. This will help you save TIME and better prepare you to avoid bad eating habits.
