My Fav Go-To Foods for Success - Shopping List Included

Saturday, June 01, 2013

I've found several go-to foods that I love, my tummy loves and they help me stay on track. emoticon

Unfortunately, no one grocery store around me carries all of my fav items. emoticon

I have to go to 3 different stores. Fortunately, they are within a 5 mile radius of my house. Unfortunately, I don't always make the time to shop on a regular basis, so sometimes run out of something. Then, I'm slipping and sliding on that slippery food choice slope. emoticon

Ideally, here's what I have in my house all the time:

--Premier Protein drinks- chocolate. 30 gms protein 160 cal
--Dannon Lite & Fit Greek yogurt. 12 gms protein 80 cal
--JUST FOUND: Yoplait Greek frozen yogurt pops. 4 gms protein 80 cal THEY SATISFY!
--Jarlsberg Lite sliced swiss cheese. 7gms protein 50 cal/slice
--Laughing Cow lite spreadable cheese wedges-garlic & herb 2gms protein 35 cal BIG TASTE!
--Lite mozzarella cheese sticks 7 gms protein 50 cal per stick
--FF Canned refried beans. Preferably Taco Bell brand. 8 gms protein 100 cal 1/2c
--Pace picante salsa
--Roasted almonds. Roasted & Salted, Habenaro (tastes like bbq potato chips) & cocoa roast. 6 gms protein 170 cal per 28 nuts THEY SATISFY!
--Starbucks ground coffee. Blonde Willow Blend- caf & decaf (I mix them)
--Hills Bros sf cappuchino mocha mix
--non-fat milk
--Alpine sf hot Apple Cider mix

I could survive on the above for a LOOOONNNNGGGG time!

I buy a bunch of each at a time and HOARD them to myself!!

    sounds like a pretty good list!

    I adore laughing cow cheese. I use them in egg mugs and chicken cordon bleu.

    I have to go to different stores too. What a pain sometimes!

    Can't get ANY of those here. Dead serious!
    But it is still interesting! Do you hide your stash?

    Have you tried the ff black bean refried beans they are my favorite.I use them for a base for soup some times besides just straight eating them. I will look for the Almonds and see if they are something I can eat. I'm glad the stores aren't very far from your house. We stock up on my husband favorite ff dressing and ss maple syrup once a year. emoticon

    When I read the title of this blog I thought I would find some new treats to try.....sorry you cannot find those things in one store....maybe talk to the manager of the one store you frequent most often and see if they couldn't get those items on the shelves.
