I buy most stuff in bulk when it's on sale or at Costco, but this is what I buy or eat every week:

Breakfast:
Fage 0% greek yogurt, in the big tubs
Cascadian Farms Organic cinnamon raisin granola
Apples, either Fuji or Gala (whatever's cheaper)

Snacks
Baby Carrots
Hummus
Kellogg's Fiber Granola Bars
Cheese Sticks, I prefer Precious Stringsters but will buy others if on sale

Weekend Breakfast
Whole Grain English Muffins (I like Thomas Light)
Peanut Butter
Raspberry Jam or Honey

Lunch/Dinner (these vary from week to week depending on sales, see comment below)
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts or Thighs
Boneless Pork Chops
Ground Turkey/Chicken/Beef
Chicken Sausage
Steaks
Bone-In Chicken of different kinds

For veggies, it varies depending on what's on sale etc, but every week I at least have broccoli and/or green beans in my cart. I'll also buy other fruits, like cara cara oranges, if they're on sale.

Everything else all just depends on my meal plan for the week, or what's on sale. Like this week my store will have whole chickens, and bone in chicken thighs and drumsticks for 98 cents a pound. So, I'll probably pick up a whole chicken, and a package of the thighs, and portion out and stick in the freezer. That way I don't have to buy multiple proteins every week when they're not on sale. Did the same thing last week for chicken breasts and pork tenderloin.

Black beans, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, spinach, string cheese, Greek yogurt, and chicken (either boneless or whole), basmati and brown rice, and whole wheat pasta are staples for me. Also whatever fruits are in season.

Going to grocery shopping and need to stock up on all kinds of things - basic meal components, healthy treats, things my family will eat. What do you consider the basic necessities for your healthy diet?
