What are your top 3 grocery staples for weight loss?

Just wondering what everyone buys at the grocery store every week. Here are my can't-do-without foods, besides the basics like bread, eggs and cow's milk:

Oikos vanilla greek yogurt
Almond milk for my oatmeal
Bagged kale mix salad with poppyseed dressing

I'd also add bbq chicken, salmon filets and couscous to the list.

What are yours?

    V8 low sodium has super high potassium and usually kills my salt craving.
    York peppermint patty, relatively low calorie and usually solves the sugar craving.
    V8 energy drinks preworkout. I drink no other caffeine.

    Most everything else I buy is clean.

    bananas, nuts, apples, almond milk, english muffins

    nuts and fruits help me stay full and english muffins are perfect when i want a sandwich or don't have leftovers to bring to work. I spread homemade peanut butter on them yum yum. I use almond milk in my coffee and have a glass with dinner. Can't live without it now.

    I don't have any particular "weight loss" foods; it wasn't until I stopped having that mindset, that I could finally manage my weight. Now I eat anything I like, and I like most foods - in fact, not worrying about not "eaing right", has made me more adventurous and willing to try new foods and stop compulsively overeating, and a healthy diet is a varied diet and appropriate amounts.

    I think she meant foods that you eat very often and/or foods that keep your hunger in check, but yes, I totally agree.
