Grocery Shopping Tomorrow
I've been keeping my diet on track, but cheated today and yesterday. I feel so guilty. It's time to buy some more groceries, so I'm getting back to sticking with my diet.
This is what I have so far:
whole wheat/whole oat bread
lean ground beef
fat-free cottage cheese
whole wheat pasta
sugar-free Jello pudding mix (for shakes)
Any other suggestions? I'd really appreciate it. I don't wanna leave anything out and I'm willing to add plenty more to my list.

Everytime I go to the store I always get avocados for healthy fats and blueberries for a natural source of b-vitamins. Other than that your list looks about identical to mine.

Never had avos before,interesting, I eat them on omeletts, with salads or just scooped straight out of the skin theyre awesome tasting. Im amazed that youve never had them before. Im wondering howll youll like em.
EDIT: Make sure theyre ripe before you eat them, they should be semi soft when you squeeze them .

I'd get some sweet potatoes to roast/make fries with.
I also love pea/lentil soup, but that might be your thing.
Fresh fruit and veggies have more benefits that many of us realize, so when you're out at the store I urge you to try and pick up a few fruits that you rarely eat or have been meaning to try. Perhaps a kiwi, or pomegranate, or get some grapes (frozen grapes are quite a fun treat!). Throw a little healthy variety into your diet!

Other than that you have a great looking grocery list there!
By the way, why do you feel so bad about cheating? There's nothing wrong with cheating here and there...Hell, I think I'd have lost my mind a long time ago if I didn't do my weekly cheat...

Just throwin a few items out.If you have the $$ maybe pick up some shrimp and/or fish maybe some yogurt for probiotics. Protein is very important but don't skimp on the fruits and veggies. I like to snack on apples throughout the day, a bag of ab 10 macintoshs at Stop&Shop is only $2.50.Otherwise your list looks great. Don't feel bad about cheating once in a while, it keeps us sane, you don't want to deprive yourself totally.

fat free cottage cheese and greek yogurt! the greek yogurt has a tart taste and is a gread dressing for sandwich meats.
About the avacados, I lived most of my life in california and now live in florida, and there are two different types popular here in the US.
The Hass avacado is most popular on the west coast. it's higher in fat, but they're good fats and they have a more solid texture. I prefer these. I can't remember the name of the ones here on the east coast, but they're more watery textured and have less fat. they're both good, but as far as just eating an avacado straight, with some salt/seasoning of choice, you want the hass.

get an all natural honey, don't worry about the sugar in it, it's perfect for you just the way nature made it.
