I love going grocery shopping and I often get asked what are some things that I purchase on a regular basis. So I am going to share with you just some of the things you will find in my grocery bag!
Ezekiel Bread (Sesame): This is probably one of my favourite foods on earth. Markus thought I was a little strange for loving this bread so much until I got him hooked too! We both love toasted Ezekiel bread and we eat it just about everyday.
Cottage Cheese: Quick and easy protein source and great to always have in the fridge. The percentages vary depending on my training and nutrition plans.
0% Plain regular yogurt: I like to add yogurt to my oats and cottage cheese.
Chicken Breasts: BBQ chicken breast is a perfect source of lean protein. Versatile in how you prepare it and use it.
Blueberries: I am not much of a fruit person but I do like blueberries and will buy them on a regular basis.
Ground X-lean Sirloin: Yes I do eat red meat. I use the ground meat to make delicious meatloaf and meatballs. I actually digest lean cuts of beef better then poultry… most likely because I use to think red meat was bad for you so I only ate chicken and turkey. You can actually develop a sensitivity to a specific food if you are regularly over consuming it.
Salmon/Trout: A few times a week I make sure to have some kind of fatty fish. I rotate between salmon, trout and arctic char.
Braggs Liquid Aminos: I put this stuff on everything! I even carry around a spray bottle version in my cooler bag. Always a must have condiment- Great alternative to soy sauce.
Kombucha (GT’s): This is a fermented tea that is very good for digestive health. If I am not sharing it with Markus, a single bottle will last me 2 days since I only drink 1/2 of the bottle at a time.
Vegetables: This changes throughout the year depending on what’s in season and what I am loving at the time. A few of my all year round favourites are; beets, broccoli, coleslaw mix, peppers, mushrooms, garlic, zucchini, winter squash.
High fibre Low carb wraps: For you wrap lovers — “Joseph’s” makes a really good low carb flat bread that tastes amazing. I have only found them at Ambrosia or you can order them online.
Organic shaved black forest ham: You all know i love my post workout sandwiches. I always use a black forest ham free of nitrates and other harsh chemicals.
Short grain brown Rice: I prefer the texture of short grain rice vs long grain. I prepare this in the rice cooker using organic chicken or vegetable broth for the liquid.
Eggs/whites: Lots of great nutrition in whole eggs. I use the whites for recipes and protein pancakes.
Oatmeal: Another regular source of carbohydrates for our post workout meals.
Canned tuna: Not a staple in our grocery bag but we always have a few cans handy.
Mustards: Mustards of all kinds!- especially any kind of sweet mustard
Stevia: I use the “Now” brand stevia daily.
Himalayan salt: No salt is not bad for you if you are using the right kind. We only buy and use Pink Himalayan salt…and we go through a lot of salt!
So there you have it! Just a few of my regular purchases from the grocery store.
