So what do you eat?

This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Lindsay too. After we tell people about all the things that we don’t eat; most grain products, wheat products, anything with sugar in it, dairy products, alcohol, lunch meat, most processed or packaged foods, after that people usually ask “so what do you eat”? So I thought I would take a picture of what we picked up at the grocery store for this week and then make a list of what we’re having this week. Mos of this will be gone by the ens of the week and some if it will last a couple of weeks.

I hope this gives you some insight as to what we actually eat.

So, what’s on the table?

  • London broil (BOGO free, hell yeah!)
  • Shrimp (BOGO free, more free food!)
  • Talapia (huge bag, lasts 2-3 weeks, on sale for $11)
  • Chicken breast
  • Tuna
  • Ground Turkey Sausage (93% fat free)
  • Eggs (there were more in the fridge but I was running out of room on the table)
  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Avocado
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumber
  • Lettuce
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinnach
  • Tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Frozen “Deluxe Stir Fry” veggies
  • Broccoli
  • Mushrooms
  • Peppers
  • Jalapeno
  • Watermelon
  • Green beans
  • Bamboo shoots
  • Refried beans (fat free)
  • Coconut milk (lite, 50% less fat)
  • Garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  • Lentils
  • Salsa
  • Almond Milk
  • Panda paws gluten free cereal
  • Mesa Sunrise gluten free cereal (Will last over 2 weeks)
  • Brown Jasmin Rice
  • Frozen Sweet Potato fries
  • Nut Mix (Roasted & unsalted; cashews, walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, philberts, dried cranberries. This tub will last me 3 weeks)
  • Hummus (not in the picture)
  • Crystal Light (not in the picture, one of the few “not so natural” things we have as it helps us to drink lots of water)

So there it all is, a week of food at our house. It’s not cheap, but we eat very well and we do not go out to eat very much (once a week for lunch and maybe one night on the weekends for dinner). Hope this helps some of you. If you notice, there are only a couple of packaged items on that table, the cereals and the tuna and some canned goods which have some very short ingredients lists, some only one ingredient.
