Sunday Afternoon Grocery Shopping

I don't mind grocery shopping, but putting everything away leaves something to be desired.  I made it everywhere I wanted except Sprouts and they are the only store around here that carries the Oasis Flaxseed bread- I will have to stop on my way home from work tomorrow.

Here are the goods that I keep on hand. Cheese, Spinach, Artichokes, Asparagus, Avocado's, Lettuce, Turkey tenderloin, Rotisserie Chicken, Whey, Unsweetened Almond Milk, and Sobe Lifewater.  

Artichokes and Asparagus are my all time favorite vegetables.  I need to enjoy them now because next month they will be out of season and ridiculously expensive.  

I hope that you all are having a great Sunday.  I sure hope Rosalie finished moving yesterday, because it was hotter today and I hear another heat wave is on the way- ugh!



  1. It is fun to meet you through blogging for Rosalie. So you guys are both in Southern California?
    Congrats on your success:)

    1. Thank you Kay. Rosalie and I live about 30-45 minutes away from each other.

  2. Lisa, you are doing a great job as guest blogger. Like your groceries too. I agree that shopping isn't the problem. I hate to unpack and put away too!!

  3. Lisa - I like it when bloggers post pictures! Sometimes it's easier to remember based on photos of a product versus remembering the name of the product!

    I will have to try out the SoBe Life Water. Any particular flavor you like or suggest?

    1. I stick to the 3 flavors that I know I like: Fuji Apple/Pear, Black and blueberry, and kiwi.

    2. Thank you. Sometimes the local stores have them 10 for $10 so I'll have to pick up a couple to replace my diet pop!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
