A trip to the supermarket tends to result in one of two outcomes: a frozen dinner, chocolate bar, and tub of hummus—and another trip to the store the next night; or a whole bunch of leafy greens, berries, zucchini, avocado, chicken breasts, and some quinoa, at least half of which ends up slimy, moldy, or in another unrecognizable and inedible condition in the back of the fridge 10 days later.
Time to stop tossing bad food and money in the trash! This grocery list from Dana Angelo White, R.D., registered dietitian and fitness consultant, includes everything one person needs to eat healthy and delicious for one week. (Click on it to print it out!) Some items are staples, so only stock up on, say, oatmeal, if you’re running low. And for the sake of your budget, buy things like meat and seafood in bulk packages (just don’t go crazy on the 12-packs!) and freeze them to thaw and eat as needed. But be sure to get your produce and dairy weekly. And then start whipping up some amazing meals!
