Short & Sweet Shopping List

I know I've posted a much more comprehensive food list previously (see here!) of pretty much everything I could ever have in my home, but it's nice to have a shorter list when going to the grocery store.  Here is a list of items that I need each week.  Some of the foods I buy more biweekly.  Hope this is helpful! 

Grains:  brown rice, barley, quinoa

Bread:  Ezekiel sprouted whole grain bread

Grain products:  Brown rice noodles, udon noodles

Beans:  lentils, black beans

Other Protein:  tofu, faux meat crumbles (or faux chicken nuggets)

Veggies:  kale and/or collard greens and/or baby spinach, sweet potato (3), onion, garlic, ginger, broccoli crowns, baby carrots, celery

Fruit:  apples (bag), oranges (bag), bananas

Seasoning:  shoyu, vegetable broth

Oils:  olive oil, coconut oil, safflower oil

Nuts/seeds:  almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds

Milks:  almond milk (vanilla), coconut milk (unsweetened plain), daiya "cheese" 

Misc:  larabars, peanut butter, rice crackers, organic ketchup, kukicha tea, raisins

Reminder:  if you're just starting to revamp your kitchen with healthy & happy foods, there are many other ingredients that I buy less often on this list that I like to have in stock, but in general, this shorter list is what my shopping looks like most weeks. 

I'm off for a run!  Half marathon is only 45 days away...time to work hard!!!

Do you tend to use the same grocery list each week? 
What's your favorite food from my list?


  1. I like all these items!! I LIVE for sprouted grain breads!!

  2. Ha! It must be grocery post day! I just did one late last night! You're more than welcome to check it out! :) One of my favorite things is a granny smith apple (organic!) with sunflower butter. I have this as part of my breakfast every morning!

    1. I've never tried sunflower butter! How cool. I love apples too! I will check out your post as well!

  3. This sounds like my ultimate grocery list! Can you buy the same for me and send it on over? ;)

  4. I admire you being vegan so much!
    And I do the same groceries usually... until I find something truly good or get inspired by some amazing bloggers like you ;)

    1. thank you!!! I'm so happy to have found your blog - I am a coffee lover as well!

  5. That is one great grocery list. Very healthy indeed. Good luck with your training!

    1. I try to keep it healthy - of course dessert does slip in...and thank you! :)
