My Clean Grocery List

by Sheri on April 15, 2013


Since starting my new training plan I have had lots of questions about what I eat.  Since my meal plan is something I purchase from Fitness Print I cannot share exactly what I eat and when but I am willing to share what my Clean Grocery List looks like!

When grocery shopping one way to think of it is to shop the perimeter of the store trying to avoid the processed food aisles in the middle. To answer many of the questions I get about healthy choices here’s what I do. I buy organic when I can (think the dirty dozen) and I usually buy groceries once or twice a week depending on what I need.  I also go to Costco to buy our most used items in bulk like egg whites and lots of veggies!  I will prep my meals for the week on Sunday and Wednesday.  This works for me best since I am a stay at home Mom I am a little more flexible with my schedule.

Here are my staples:

  • red peppers
  • celery
  • carrots
  • cucumbers
  • zucchini
  • broccoli, green beans or asparagus
  • Cauliflower
  • yellow and red onions
  • squash (usually spaghetti or butternut)
  • Portobello or cremini mushrooms
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • arugula or Kale
  • baby spinach
  • avocados
  • grapefruit
  • Gala or Fuji apples and Honey Crisp when in season!
  • Berries (blackberries, blueberries and strawberries)
  • lemons and limes
  • chicken or turkey breast(s)
  • Beef (we purchase grass fed beef from a local farmer)
  • extra lean ground turkey
  • white fish (like halibut or tilapia)
  • Shrimp
  • Wild salmon
  • Organic eggs (my favourite comes from the Farmer’s Market)
  • egg whites in a carton
  • unsweetened almond milk
  • 0% Greek yogurt
  • 1% cottage cheese
  • Light cheese (such as Babybel or Allegro)
  • one other stronger cheese like low fat feta, swiss or goat

In my pantry and fridge I always have:

  • brown rice (varieties like brown basmati, brown jasmine)
  • quinoa (black and red)
  • brown rice or Whole Wheat pasta
  • quinoa/amaranth pasta
  • Mary’s brand gluten free crackers (super clean!)
  • gluten free flours: brown rice, coconut, arrowroot, and almond
  • legumes (chickpeas,lentils and black beans)
  • stevia (liquid and powder, plain and vanilla)
  • Coconut sugar
  • Vanilla Extract (the good stuff not artificial!)
  • Cinnamon (love it!!)
  • raw cacao or coco powder
  • cacao nibs
  • raw nuts: almonds, cashews, walnuts, and pecans
  • chia seeds
  • ground flax seeds
  • hemp hearts
  • unsweetened shredded coconut
  • natural almond and peanut butters (in the fridge once opened!)
  • unsweetened applesauce
  • sugar free low sodium tomato sauce
  • sodium free diced tomatoes (preferably BPA free can)
  • sodium free/fat free chicken broth
  • a MILLION herbs and spices!
  • Vinegars: apple cider, balsamic and red wine
  • Hot sauces (love them all kinds!)
  • coconut oil and coconut butter
  • olive oil
  • different mustards (sugar free)
  • fresh garlic
  • coffee, green tea and lots and lots of herbal teas! (DavidsTea is my fav!)
