What's on YOUR weekly shopping list?

What foods do you all buy? I'm tired of eating the same foods and am looking for new meals to prepare. What healthy items do you buy or recommend?

    I always have in my cabinets or fridge: oatmeal, 2% milk string cheese, Libby's pure pumpkin puree, spinach, unsweetened coconut milk, broccoli slaw, eggs, fish/chicken/deli turkey/meat of the week, PB2, some sort of Back to Nature snack, ultra thin Sargento provolone cheese, broccoli, and whole wheat bread. I bake a low calorie baked good for myself every week too to use daily as a snack, so having all the baking essentials is really important to me.

    Ribeye, bacon, pork chops, lamb rack, ground beef, whole chicken, eggs, cream, butter, organic frozen vegetables (asparagus, kale, spinach, broccoli, rapini, cauliflower, etc), cabbage, organic canned tomatoes, Lindt dark chocolate, 10% fat Greek yogurt, creme fraiche, raw nuts (macadamia, Brazil, almonds, walnuts), cheese (grass fed high quality from Europe, like kerrygold, parmigiano reggiano, Comte, etc), wild caught fish and seafood (salmon, scallops, oysters, halibut), tuna in cans, cold cuts (salami, prosciutto, mortadella), coffee beans for espresso, earl grey tea, chamomile tea, extra virgin olive oil, organic fresh herbs (parsley, basil, rosemary, thyme, bay), fresh garlic, shallots, leeks, celery, carrots, and lastly....a nice bottle of red wine.

    My favorite weekly buy is Oikos Greek yogurt. It's amazing tasting and only a $1 a container at Wal-Mart. (Apple Pie flavor is amazing!)

    Right now I'm heavy on proteins and I don't eat red meat (I can't physically digest it! weird me!) so I get a lot of turkey and chicken. A bag of frozen Tilapia filets is on my list for next week. You can put them frozen in the pan and have a hot fish filet a few minutes later.

    I eat Special K vanilla almond cereal, Special K popcorn chips and baked chips, and Special K strawberry protein bars for a quick breakfast on the run. Bananas, almonds, carrot chips, and egg beaters.

    Also, I buy two-cup containers to store turkey chili and soups in the freezer for a quick lunch. Snack size Ziplock bags for making up snacks to take to work.

    Not a meal, but my new treat that totally helps me stay on track is Dole Dark Chocolate Strawberry Dippers. (They have bananas, too, but I am highly allergic.) They are an awesome nightly decadence. So Yummy!
    Other "staples" are MSF Grillers Prime, Chicken, Nappa Cabbage, Grape tomatoes, Dannon Light and Fit Greek yogurt, SF Jello and seltzer water. :bigsmile:

    Mixed vegetables (carrot, beans, cauliflower & broccoli)

    Chobani 0% fat greek yoghurt (for my sour cream alternative)
    Chicken thighs
    Shredded tasty cheese
    Cayenne pepper
    Coconut oil

    Before dinner & after dinner:
    Chobani 2% fast lemon/passion fruit/apricot greek yoghurt (my ice cream alternative & so much healthier)
    Pane Di Casa olive loaf (my work makes this so it's free for me & I'll eat one loaf a day)

    Depending on if I'm going out or if I feel like a change:
    Chilli tuna sushi

    But then I buy daily... so daily is the chobani plain, chobani flavored (I buy 6 a day& eat them all), olive loaf (free so I need just pop into work on my way to shopping) chicken (had that daily since feb 8th 2012)

    Today's 30 minute "speed shopping" on a tight schedule: spaghetti squash, ground turkey, part skim ricotta, part skim mozzerella (add pasta sauce which we have at home and you have spaghetti squash lasagna-a new favorite of mine-so filling and tasty! And good calorie-wise)....also portabella mushrooms (use the caps as mini pizza crusts), broccoli... Would have gotten yogurt but the store I was at doesn't have the kind I like.

    Spinach, broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, onions, bell pepper, lettuce/salad mixes, celery
    ground chicken/turkey
    turkey sausage
    cheddar cheese, 2% string cheese,
    water (our tap water is nasty even with a filter)
    chicken breasts

    Always on the list! Usually end up with some fashion of spice rack item or condiment like bbq sauce or olive oil in there as well. Fruit depends on season more so now it's more the apple, banana, orange range vs summer where there's a lot of melon.
