Foundations: Buying Groceries

A little direction goes a long way when buying groceries.  Having a basic plan can ensure that you've stocked up your kitchen so that making balanced meals remains simple and convenient.  When I write up my grocery list I like to partition the list into the subcategories of Proteins, Carbs and Fats. Here is my last receipt broken down as an example.

Proteins

4 oz Ground beef Patties (Organic, 90% Fat Free) x6
Bonless Chicken Breast (Organic, Free Range) x4
Applegate Farms Kielbasa Sausage x2
Dozen Eggs (Organic, Omega 3, Free Range)
Fage Greek Yogurt x2

Carbs

Red Delicious Apples x 4
Asparagus Spears
Broccoli x3
Brussel Sprouts
Frozen Mixed Berries

Fats
Almonds (Raw)
Almond Butter (.5 Pint)
Mozzarella Cheese

Try it out for yourself and see if your grocery list is as balanced as the meals you intend to make are.
