My Healthy Grocery List

Hey everyone!  I posted this cute photo on my instagram last week asking if y’all would want to see what I buy on repeat at the grocery store.  I had an overwhelming response (I’m sure the purse and flowers had a little something to do with that), but now I’ve put together a list for y’all!  I don’t even make myself a list, I just have my little drill down.  I do my grocery shopping at Kroger because we live super close to one! Their produce selection is always stocked and fresh, too!

LET’S TALK FUTURE BLOG POSTS AND HEALTHY GROCERY SHOPPING! 🌸🛒💖. . Since I’m working on my upcoming blog post calendar & want to keep sharing content that truly helps my followers: Who would want to see a post that covers grocery shopping? I was thinking of sharing products that are almost ALWAYS in my shopping cart. Let me know your thoughts below because my content is made for YOU! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼. . Also, my giveaway winner for the upcoming #FASTtracktoFit program winner will be named THIS WEDNESDAY at 8pm CST on instagram LIVE featuring me AND @lindsayrenefitness! We moved up the date so the winner can have time to start and get prepared to take prep week as serious as I did! Be sure to get entered on my blog (link in bio) or in my insta story! Can’t wait to see you babes LIVE this week WITH my hot fitness coach!

For those of you who are active followers and readers of mine, you’ll know I’ve been doing the Fast Track to Fit program since January of 2018. I don’t follow a specific meal plan, but I’m eating more carbs than ever before and love it! I haven’t yet put together any recipes for y’all because doing a full content creation blog in addition to running my own business and living life just takes a lot of extra time!  But, to hold y’all over I will link some wonderful that my fitness coach Lindsay has on her website HERE.  Her protein balls are super yummy!

I did put together a blog recently that lists some of my favorite healthy snack options.  You can read that post HERE.

Another recent post I’ve written that you might want to read is the top few reasons why I love the current fitness program I’m doing.  I’ll link that HERE.

Special thanks for my insta hubs for going into Kroger obvi in public to take my over the top/super happy grocery shopping photos lol. The grocery store is the most stressful place for me and Grant because he sticks to what he needs and nothing else. Meanwhile I’m counting squirrels and getting creative on what new recipes to try for dinner. Like I’ll be looking st Pinterest on my phone and accidentally running into someone else’s buggy. I am proud to say we accomplished this task with no stress. We did see 2 people we know, but I just took charge and told them I was blogging so Grant didn’t have to explain his super extra wife haha.

My Healthy Grocery List by Randa Carrabba

Fresh Produce

Red Lettuce

Romaine Lettuce

Spinach

Kale

Mushrooms

Cabbage

Cucumbers

Zucchini

Asparagus

Red and Sweet Onions

Broccoli

Celery

Sweet Potatoes

Bell Pepper (I always choose red first because it has the most nutritional value of all the colors!)

Fresh Fruit

Strawberries

Blueberries

Bananas (Fun fact, I always freeze mine when they go bad that way I can use them in future smoothies or for a homemade banana bread!)

Oranges

Lemons

Apples

Cantaloupe

Avocado (yes, it’s technically a fruit NOT a veggie!)

Dairy

Greek Yogurt (I love Greek God’s Brand in the Honey and Honey Vanilla Flavors)

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

Unsweetened Almond Milk (ok, so this isn’t TECHNICALLY dairy, but I still put it in this category!)

Extra Large Brown Eggs

Meats

Shrimp (Hello protein!)

Ground Turkey (I have basically replaced my ground beef with this leaner option that’s higher in protein.  Cattle people, don’t get angry.  I still eat my fair share of steaks and a medium rare steak is my favorite meal!)

Fresh Salmon (Purchasing this from the fresh produce case is sooooo worth it at Kroger!  Probably my favorite protein selection they carry!)

Cod (This is super high in protein and I have been eating far more of it than ever before these past few months)

Chicken Breast AND Chicken Thighs (because my husband prefers thighs)

Low Sodium Bacon (I do regular bacon, not turkey bacon because I like the flavor better)

Pork Chops or Pork Loin

If they have beef steaks on sale, I’ll grab those too.  We typically only eat beef or steaks for really special occasions or when we go out to eat rather than just an every day occasion.  I prefer filets or ribeyes!  Just DO NOT give me any grass fed beef.  It tastes like I’m eating grass rather than meat….yuck!

Whole Grains

Wheat Sandwich Thins or Double Fiber Wheat Bread

Honey Bunches of Oats

Special K Red Berries Cereal

Fiber 1 Bars (our personal favorite is the cheesecake one!)

Granola

Veggie Noodles (plus I always grab canned low sodium tomatoes and sauce for when we have a spaghetti craving)

Snacks

Popcorn – any low fat or reduced calorie option

Reduced fat graham crackers (cinnamon flavor is my favorite, chocolate is Grant’s)

Sugar free cool whip (I love to eat this with fruit, mixed with my jello or a frozen scoop in between my graham crackers)

Sugar free jello

Skinny cow ice cream sandwhiches

Peanuts/Almonds/Pistachios or Mixed Nuts

Peanut Butter (Kroger brand is my favorite!  I try to get reduced far.  I love crunchy but Grant loves smooth)

Miscellaneous

Coconut Oil

Olive Oil

Prunes (haha I sound like my grandfather, but they are THE probiotic to use!)

Flaxseed

Chia Seeds

Reduced sodium bone broth or chicken broth

Sugar Free Red Bull

Propel Flavored Waters

Things I Try to Avoid

Processed Foods

Sugars (I try to only do the natural sugars in fruit)

Anything where high fructose corn syrup is the #1 ingredient (I have to watch Grant who always tries to put the chewy chips ahoy chocolate chip cookies in the basket lol)

White flour (I choose wheat even though Grant still prefers white)

I always choose the low sodium, reduced fat or sugar free option of everything EXCEPT ranch dressing.

For condiments I do use low sugar ketchup and low sodium soy sauce, it’s just not something I have to buy every time I go to the grocery store.

 

Hope this helps encourage some of you to choose a little healthier options at the grocery store.  My thing is if I don’t buy it, then I won’t be tempted to eat it at home!

xo,

      I don’t have one particular brand, but I know I’ve bought the Kroger brand multiple times.
