Example of my weekly grocery list

Anna's Sample Grocery List

One of the most important things that can either make or break your fitness and nutrition goals is grocery shopping. Buying the right kinds of food will aid you in achieving your target figure and health. The number one thing I consider when buying groceries is the amount of ingredients in a food. If you have read my other blogs you know I say this a lot, but the fewer the ingredients the better. Eating mainly whole foods, without added sweeteners and oils has helped me feel and look the way I want to. Below I will give you a list of foods that show up on my weekly grocery list and foods that I always have in my pantry.

The best part about being selective when buying groceries is that when you get a craving for something unhealthy, if you didn't buy it at the grocery store, then you literally can not eat it. For example, if you tend to get a craving to binge on chips, if they are not on your grocery list you can't eat them. Instead of chips you could munch on some carrots with peanut butter or humus or a handful of nuts instead.

I should also add that you can buy all these things at a local grocery store, Walmart or Target. You do not have to break your bank going to some high society, all organic, over-priced grocery store. I am in college and easily stay on budget buying these foods.
