Grocery List

So here is my List that works for me.  I always have this in my house.

Lean Meats: (Read the labels, mom) We are looking for NO PROCESSING, NO HORMONES, NO ANTIBIOTICS, GRASS-FED.

Chicken Breast,Roast Chicken,Skinless Chicken Pieces,Chicken Cutlets

Turkey Breast, Ground turkey meat

Ground Sirloin

So if you don’t have time to go to the deli today to have the butcher slice fresh turkey and roast beef then go to the Publix counter and order:

Cold Cuts: Low Sodium Turkey,Honey Roasted Turkey,Ham(if you eat it)

Tuna in Water

________________

Fish:

Cod, Haddock,Flounder, Trout, wild Salmon (only), Tilapia(ask if the fish is corn fed…it’s a trick the USDA is playing on us.)  Don’t buy the tilapia in Publix. Only buy from Whole Foods. The tilapia farm that Whole Food uses feeds fish real feed, not corn.  Publix farms uses corn which make the fish high in Omega 6.  Not good.

Only Buy Fresh Produce: NO CANNED!!!!!!!!!!!

Broccoli, Baby Spinach(in the packages),asparagus, Lettuce,Cucumbers, tomatoes,cauliflower, onions, mushrooms,zucchini, potatoes, white sweet potatoes, carrots, celery
