Shopping List Ideas

Now what!? Let’s eat!! Here are some must-have foods that I make sure to always have on hand. I will update this list as I think of things but NOTICE the only “gluten free” foods that I purchase are just a substitute to rice and quinoa products. We love our pasta noodles so definitely check out Trader Joe’s and Aldi’s for those! NOTE: this is a list for those who are looking to eliminate the 7 common food intolerances.

  • coconut oil
  • quinoa
  • organic black beans, navy beans, kidney beans for recipes
  • organic tomato sauce(read the labels! look for ones with no soybean oil)
  • roaster chicken(throw it in the oven in my dutch oven with salt, pepper and butter on 375 F, pick the chicken and then add water for broth) We can get two to three meals from this
  •  quinoa/rice pasta(spirals) from Aldi’s or Trader Joe’s- I have recently found other good pastas in grocery stores but these are still my go-to pastas
  • quinoa
  • organic lettuce-romaine for salads, iceburg for lettuce wraps
  • organic bell peppers
  • organic cucumbers
  • organic carrots
  • cashews for snacking and recipes
  • almond and/or cashew butter for recipes
  • oats! Lots and lots of oats. If you start out gluten free, make sure that you use gluten free oats to make sure you are getting all gluten out of your system. Later on if you find that you are able to tolerate them, you won’t have to be so selective if you need to watch your budget.
  • local ground turkey and ground turkey sausage in freezer section
  • organic spinach frozen to add to recipes
  • Find a local farm for meats. We have been getting our chicken and beef locally. Otherwise get Laura’s ground beef and other cuts depending on the price.
  • onions for recipes
  • protein for smoothies- look for soy free! We carry a yummy protein powder 🙂
  • frozen organic berries for smoothies
  • dates to use in snack bars
