A ‘hunter’s’ shopping trolley

18 Nov

My recent post talked about how to choose what you eat based on whether you can pick it, grow it or hunt it. A simple an effective way to get good nutrition. Now to go one step further and help out those people that are first starting out on their nutritional journey, I wanted to list out what I get in a typical weekly shop. This is by no means a perfect shopping trolley and there some things in there that do not fit truly with the ethos (remember the 80-90% rule), although should be a good starting point for most people. I’m calling it, the ‘hunter’s’ shopping trolley:

Breakfast foods:

  • Almonds
  • Sunflower, pumpkin and flax seeds (taste better if blended)
  • Seasonal berries (blueberries are my favourite)
  • Porridge
  • Almond milk
  • Spinach
  • Free range eggs (scrambled in grassfed butter with the spinach)

Snack foods:

  • Almonds
  • Seeds as above, although this time roasted
  • Seasonal berries
  • Other fruits such as apples and bananas
  • Honey

Foods for lunch and dinner:

  • Brown rice
  • Brown rice pasta
  • Quinoa
  • Sweet potatoes
  • White potatoes
  • Butternut squash
  • Carrots
  • Peppers
  • Courgette
  • Broccoli
  • Lemons & limes
  • Avocado
  • Chicken
  • Beef mince
  • Salmon fillets
  • Tomatoes (tinned and fresh)
  • Tinned lentils, chickpeas and blackbeans
  • Kale
  • Onions and garlic

There are probably a few items I have missed and I haven’t included other pieces like herbs, seasoning and oils (which I do use), although you get the idea. I would also challenge anyone who thinks the list of ingredients looks bland and boring, with a little creativity you can cook up some very tasty recipes, some of which I will post at a later date. Now get to your supermarket and get ‘hunting’.
