    Twice a week:
    A selection of 3 fresh fruits (what looks delicious, what's cheap, what's in season, and what haven't I had for a while) - today I bought plums, loquats, pears; other regulars are pomelo, melons, pomegranate, pineapple, peaches/nectarines, apricots, passion fruit, figs, litchi/longans/rambutans, grapes, apples, tangerines, oranges.

    A selection of 3 or 4 vegetables for eating raw (same criteria as for fruit) - usually carrots, cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, rutabaga; occasionally kohlrabi or romanesco.

    Whatever vegetables I need for dinner that day and less-perishable vegs for later in the week (corn on the cob, artichoke, parsnips, onion, garlic, chili, peppers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, rutabaga, mushrooms, celery, celery root, carrots, asparagus, lettuce - not all at once, lol; I do my "real" cooking twice a week, the other days are "lazy cooking", freezer meals or planned leftovers).

    A quart of whole milk.

    Depending on where I am in the eating up-cycle:
    Crispbread - whole grains, rye
    Sandwich spreads - liver paté, cheese, smoked/pickled fish, "caviar"
    Fresh or frozen meat/fish/shellfish/surimi - pork chops, ground beef, T-bone steak, lamb chops, minced lamb, chicken thighs/wings/breast, salmon filets, lobster, scampi, mussels
    Greek yogurt or dessert cheese - brie, port salut, roquefort/gorgonzola
    Eggs
    Rice, oatmeal, pasta, other grains like polenta, semolina, tapioca, barley, white and whole wheat flour
    Dried beans/lentils
    Frozen peas/green beans/brussel sprouts/edamame/spinach
    Frozen strawberries/blueberries
    Canned tuna, tomatoes (passata)
    Pickles (pickled cucumber, whole small and sliced)
    Nuts - peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews (I've started making my own nut butters yay!), pistachios, chestnuts
    Seeds - pine/sesame
    Butter
    Cheese for grating (parmesan)
    Sliced bread, tortillas, pita
    Bananas for slicing and freezing
    Herbs, spices and condiments, stock, oils, lime/lemon juice, vinagers, soy sauce, sugar, honeys, maple syrup, mayo
    Coffee, tea, cocoa
    Cereals (don't eat often, but like to have one box, for instance Weetabix)
    Instant noodles (monthly "indulgences")
    As a backup I keep a stock of canned sauces, vegetables and fruit.

    Occasional stuff:
    Frozen pizza, lasagne, spring rolls
    Cream (use tiny amount for cooking; freezes well in ice cube bags)
    Ricotta
    Dried fruit - apricots, raisins, dates
    Jam
    Flavored yogurt
    Fruit teas and herbal teas
    Ginger, shallots, fresh herbs.
