Paleo/Zone Grocery List

Hey,

Anyone care to show what's on their Paleo/Zone Grocery List each time they go shopping for food at the super market or whole foods?

I thought this might be of interest to some people as it will give people a general consensus of what food people like to eat and cook when on the Paleo/Zone diet.

And if you want, you could also state what ingredients from the shopping list you use for making the different breakfasts, lunches, and dinners you eat.

Hopefully, with this, we will be able to get a glimpse of what everyone is eating, and perhaps adjust our own selections; as well as learn a few recipes or two, or learn to be more diverse in our food selection and cooking.

Re: Paleo/Zone Grocery List

I like to keep my shopping easy and simple. This is what I buy generally and just restock as necessary:
Apples
Oranges
Grapefruit
Strawberries (fresh when possible, frozen otherwise)
Lots of broccoli
Cauliflower
Tomatoes
Cucumber
Almonds
Walnuts
Eggs
Chicken breast
Canned tuna
Salmon (smoked and fillets)

Sometimes make a trip to the butcher for some grassfed beef and bison.

Just eat it block by block, nothing special for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Re: Paleo/Zone Grocery List

I second Sean with the easy and simple plan:
Apples
Strawberries
Peaches
Raspberries
Brocoli
Carrots
Almonds
Walnuts
Pecans
Olive oil (rarely, the bottle I buy is big)
Chicken Breast
Salmon (lots of it because I love it)
Turkey
Ham


I use ham and turkey to make sandwhiches because I golf and theres no way I can eat chicken on the course. Usually have them with some fruit and nuts. I know it's not paleo, but it is the healthiest option available to me while I am golfing, since the halfway houses only have hotdogs and snacks.

Re: Paleo/Zone Grocery List

Flank Steak
Rib eye Steak
Arugula
Romaine Lettuce
Grape Tomatoes
Red Onion
Yellow Onion
Swiss Chard
Strawberries
Blueberries
Rasberries
Walnuts
Macademia Nuts
Cashews
Coconut Milk

Great topic. I've managed to simultaneously inform somebody and compile my grocery list for today. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

Re: Paleo/Zone Grocery List

Anything Paleao is strictly coincidental for me...

Apples
Strawberries
Rasberries
blueberries
chicken breast
peaches
lean steak
shrimp
tilapia or salmon
lowfat cottage cheese
whole milk
eggs and egg whites
cucumbers
broccoli
cauliflower
romaine lettuce
almonds
deli meat: chicken, turkey, ham (for delicious omelletes)

My meals are simple, usually just portioning out the ingredients and not cooking anything fancy.

Meals are pretty zone friendly, but I need to work on being more paleo...

Re: Paleo/Zone Grocery List

Not Zone or Paleo, but these are the staples in my diet.

I buy in bulk with the exception of the eggs (weekly from a young man who enjoys raising chickens) and the vegetables (every third day from the Co-op or farmer's market).

Raw milk (for drinking and making kefir, yogurt, cream cheese and whey)
Raw milk butter and cream
Free range chicken and eggs
Wild caught Salmon
Grassfed beef/lamb meats and organ meats
Local organic greens/vegetables from the Co-op or farmer's market
Organic berries, apples and limes
Olive oil
Coconut oil
Organic spices
Young organic coconuts (for making coconut water kefir)

Fruit:
Apples
Blackberries
Two Banana's a week - (I know, Not great for the GI area).

Meat:
Free Range Chciken Breast = By the pound per week.
Free Range Beef = Once or Twice a month from TJ's or Whole Foods.

Nuts:

broccoli (with all meals including my omlets)
carrots
spinach leaves
celery (to go with the peanut butter)
(working on a better varity of veggies)

apples
bananas(just learned they are not GI friendly)
grapes every now and then

cashews
almonds
adams peanut butter

organic whole milk
cheese(for omlets)

balsamic vinageratte

every now and then I get

canned tomatoes
