Shopping for healthy + whole foods can feel overwhelming if you’re unsure where to start. You may think to yourself, “What do I even buy”. Well, to help simplify things I have written out my current personal grocery list below. Feel free to use it as a guide. I consider these foods essential and have them in the house every week if I can.
Add or subtract as you wish. And remember to choose *organic when possible.
Almond milk (Soy-free /dairy-free / gluten-free)
Bananas (2 bunches-peel and freeze the ripest bunch to use in smoothies during the week)
Low GI frozen fruit (and any type of frozen berries)
Wild caught Salmon or Organic free-range Chicken (whole or breasts) + keep in mind that it is best not to eat animal protein everyday or at every meal for that matter
Longer lasting items that you can buy less often:
Almond butter (if you are NOT allergic to nuts)
Turmeric Seasoning (powder)
Pink Himalayan sea salt
*You can check out the EWG’s shoppers guide to show you the most important produce to buy organic. Keep in mind that this is the list for the 2014 year as the 2015 list has not come out yet. Nevertheless it is still great info to be aware of.
Can you think of any other whole food essentials to add to this list?
What are your favorites?
