If I know what TO eat and what NOT to eat, what’s better etc etc .. why don’t I ever know what to buy at the grocery store?! Do you guys just buy random healthy things you like? Do you think of meals you want to eat & buy from that? I don’t know why it’s so hard to get started when I know what to eat and what not to eat!

I eat the same breakfast everyday (frozen Jimmy Dean light bfast sandwiches)
I eat similar snacks daily (fruit, veggies and hummus, oatmeal, cottage cheese, yogurt, nuts)
I also eat a lot of the same lunches (chicken breast and veggie, turkey sandwiches, leftovers)
Every Sunday I make a meal plan with my Plan to Eat app, I have recipes stored on there, drag and drop into my calender, select serving number, and it makes me my grocery list. I also add my snacks and lunch ingredients to the list. It's so easy. Here's a screenshot of the site:
When I go to the store I stick to my list and don't buy what I won't eat. I've learned what kind of foods I will actually eat. I've learned which foods I shouldn't buy because I will eat the whole box/bag in a day. It is a learning process.
I'm a planner so this is what works for me! My boyfriend is not a planner and will eat anything which works well, he doesn't really like knowing what we'll eat ahead of time or planning future meals. So each night I surprise him with the planned meal. I couldn't stand coming home and having to make up some meal to cook, I like having all needed ingredients on hand. And I like cooking so it all works out.
