Shopping list : Quick and Easy

A good diet starts with shopping. Don’t buy crap, don’t eat crap. It’s really that easy. Here’s a list with all the good stuff that needs to be in your basket.

Good Protein Sources:

 

Eggs
Liquid Egg Whites: More convenient but more expensive
Skinless Chicken Breast: high quality lean protein
Lean Ground Turkey: Lean high quality protein
(Wild) Salmon Healthy fatty fish: costly but quality protein + tons of healthy fatty acids
Canned Tuna: Lean, easy and inexpensive. Get the water based one, not oil.
Lean Ground Beef
Cottage Cheese: Source of Casein protein. Slow digesting so will provide the body with protein for a long time.
Pork Tenderloin: fairly inexpensive medium lean protein.
Protein powder: Convenient, usually tasty and pure (if you get a good brand) also helps sweet cravings
Protein snacks: protein bars / nuts / seeds

Good Sources Of Carbohydrates

 

Oatmeal— cooked or overnight. Slow digesting, tons of fiber and nutrients. Learn to love it!
Fruit— Favorites for me are Blueberries (lots of nutrients / antioxidants ), bananas and apples. Best eaten around the workout because they’re mostly quick digesting carbs.
Vegetables— The more the better really. Tons of fiber and nutrients.
Sweet Potatoes
Brown Rice
White Rice: Fast-carb. Best eaten around the workout
Whole Wheat Bread

Good Sources Of Fats

 

Olive Oil
Flax seed oil
Fish Oil—Staple source of omega 3/6/9
Almond Butter
Cashew Butter
Peanut Butter (watch the sugar content)
Almonds
Pecans
Walnuts
Cashews
Macadamia
Avocados
