Going into the supermarket or ordering online can be a daunting task at the start of your healthy journey. Well I’ve put together a very basic shopping list that should be the bones for your food shop. It’s full of healthy food that should start you off on the right path.
It’s really basic as I don’t know what food you like or don’t like. But I find these foods to help me keep on track with losing and maintaining my weight. Also don’t forget to check out my Seasonality Table blog post for a whole bunch of advice on buying fruit and vegetables in season.
Order these often and keep stocked up.
Mix these items up. You don’t need to stock fully up on them (and infact doing so might increase waste as we don’t tend to cook with more than 5/6 ingredients at once) you can just add a few in at the end that you fancy trying. Always make sure you do use them otherwise you’re just creating more waste.
These are items that won’t hurt you in small doses. Have a few bits every now and then as a treat.
