Shopping List

Here is a basic shopping list I created for myself. Buy organic where possible and always, always check to make sure there is no added nasties! Sugar is added to everything these days and it’s just not necessary.

* Fresh produce:

Apples
Asparagus
Avocado
Banana
Berries (frozen)
Broccoli
Carrot
Capsicum
Cauliflower
Celery
Corn (on cob)
Cucumber
Eggplant
Garlic
Grapes
Green Beans
Kale
Mushrooms
Pears
Pumpkin
Red onion
Spinach leaves
Sweet potato
Tomato
Zucchini

* Dairy

Low fat Greek yogurt (Chobani 2% – best I’ve found – buy it in Woolworths)
Low fat cheddar cheese (check ingredients!)
Low fat milk (skim, soy, almond etc)

* Meat/Fish

Chicken breast (skinless)
Salmon
Low sodium uncured lean ham
Tuna in spring water
Low sodium turkey
Lean lamb chop
Extra lean ground beef (check ingredients!)

* Beans/Legumes

Kidney beans
Chickpeas
Plus heaps more!

* Grains

100% Wholemeal bread (best I’ve found is Mias Wholemeal – no added sugar and no preservatives)
Oats (steel cut or rolled – NOT instant oats, especially flavoured ones)
Quinoa
Brown Rice
Wholemeal flour
Wholemeal self raising flour
Popcorn kernels (put these in the microwave in a paper bag and you’ve got yourself a delicious snack!)

* Nuts/Seeds/Oil/Herbs

Hummus (Woolworths Macro – dairy free)
Natural Almond butter (Woolworths Macro)
Natural Peanut butter (Woolworths Macro)
Flaxseed (linseed meal)
Chia seeds
Sunflower seeds
Walnuts
Almonds
Extra Virgin olive oil
Cinnamon
Mixed herbs

* Other
Dark chocolate (70% or higher) [only as a treat – one square!]
Pure honey
Agave syrup

Basically stay on the outside of the shop where all the fresh produce is. The only things you need to go in the aisles for are some grains (oats, quinoa etc.) and the spreads & nuts.
