The things I don't see listed are what I'll add. I think I buy many or all of the healthy whole foods listed.

Grains: Barley, Cornmeal and Quinoa.
Just bought whole grain flour which I will try with my pizza dough.
Fat Free Ricotta
Tomato sauce & tomato paste (plain)

I do buy ice cream and other treats and usually have something like that once a week.

For me, so much revolves around recipes. What good is having an item if I don't know what to do with it?


But my staples are (in no particular order, and assuming I'm living normally with a kitchen, fridge, and all that):


soy milk
protein powder (like hemp)
tofu
seitan
vegi burgers
vegi dogs
rice (wide variety, like Forbidden Black, Lundberg brown, Bhutanese Red, etc.)
beans (wide variety, black, mung, garbanzo, kidney, pinto, etc.)
lentils
Tomatoes (canned and fresh)
avocados
onions
garlic
leek
tomatillos
oranges
apples
chermoyas
berries
cherries
quinoa
buckwheat
millet
whole grain bread
almond butter
popcorn
vegan butter
Vegenaise
vegan cheese
nuts of all kinds
seeds of all kinds (like pumpkin, hemp, sesame, sunflower)
olive oil
sunflower oil
sesame oil
herbs & spices galore, refilled as needed
leafy greens of all kinds (kale, mache, collards, spinach, lettuce, dandelion, watercress, beet greens, etc.)
celery
cucumbers
jalepeno or serrano peppers
bell peppers, and other mild/sweet peppers like lipstick or hungarian
mild peppers & chilies like anaheim or poblano
broccoli (all colors)
cabbage (all colors)
carrots (all colors)
potatoes (all colors)
sprouts (all kinds, alfalfa, pea, sunflower, etc.)
scallion
shallot
All kinds of faux meats like lentil loaves, tofurky, and the like.
winter & summer squash

Oh, I'm forgetting a bunch - I eat so many fruits and vegetables on a regular basis. Most likely if it exists, it's on the list. But then again, I mostly go seasonal, and with a menu plan.

Don't eat a lot of pre-made or processed foods.

Chargrilled Boca Burgers-tastes really close to Burger King for those fast food cravings, 90 calories per patty and lots of protein

100 Calories Breyers Yo Crunch Cheesecake Yogurt-Little bits of "crust" and vanilla flavored yogurt, a tasty dessert

Lean Cuisine Cannelloni and Ravioli's-under 250 calories and delicious.

Beef Jerky-Low to no fat and carbs, high in protein, 60 calories per serving

Weight loss shakes for when I'm rushing in the morning before work, I usually only have 1 or 2 of these in a week, lots of protein and fiber, filled with vitamins and don't taste too bad either.

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts-we buy these in bulk at Sam's Club, great for changing up recipes to be healthier

Ground Turkey Breast-Same as the chicken except we don't buy this in bulk. Replaces ground beef recipes.

English muffins-I make mini pizzas with these and they are filling and satisfy pizza cravings with less fat and calories.

by moving I assume you mean London , England? Not sure where you are to start with so can't suggest anything as to products for comparison, but you might join the British team here on SP for ideas (think there is a team here from London as well, not sure).

As to always on my must have list? Hummus and Carrots are the two must have's on my grocery list (though I am trying to get into the habit of making my own hummus - but not working out to well as yet).

I'm not a vegan or what have you, but some other items on my must have list are local berries that are on sale what ever they might be, if they are local and at a good price I get them. I also try and shop as much as possible at Farmers Markets (I know that london, england does have these as well, but depending on where you are in london to what and where they are found, since its such a large city).
