What are foods / meals you put on your grocery list?

I'm trying to make a well -rounded and wholesome grocery list so we aren't stuck with the same foods we always get.

Which is primarily pasta, tbh.

And for the past month or so our primary protein source is chicken so I'm kind of getting sick of that, as well.

  • I keep my pantry stocked with different types of pasta and sauces, a blend of rices and quinoa, and beans and lentils. We buy a tub of salad greens each week and usually tomatoes, a Cucumber and Avocado for sandwiches, salads, etc. I often will stop on my way home from work to buy a meat or something for dinner, but we do typically have meatballs, burgers and steaks in the freezer. I prefer fresh chicken and pork. I also make big pots of soup and freeze them so that's always an option as well.

  • pasta is cheap and good for you so it's always good to get
    chicken... very healthy, cheap and tons of ways to prepare it
    ground beef... less healthy but in moderation it is fine. lots of things to do with it (burgers, tacos, meatloaf, meatballs, etc)
    steak... i usually have a bunch in my freezer that i buy when they are on sale. delicious and in moderation healthy to consume

    veggies and fruits.
    i steam a lot of veggies as side dishes for meals or otherwise usually go with salads

    rice/risotto... it's a great side or something to accompany with meat and veggies

    trader joes has really great prepared pizza doughs so we often have that and then obviously some good fresh mozz, sauce and toppings and you have a quick and easy meal

    less healthy, i usually have hot dogs, and chicken nuggets so if i need a quick meal they are available

    there aren't a ton of meats but it's really about finding different ways to prepare them

      if i can find fish on sale i always get it (only wild caught or "responsibly farm raised"). you can often find tuna and salmon on sale

  • When I shop I always try to buy the essential food groups, frozen pizza, bacon, candy, chocolate, cheese, and ice cream.
