On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m showing you the fitness foods from my grocery haul to stay lean and build muscle.
It’s been a while since I shared a grocery food haul, so today I’m going to show you the foods I just picked up at the grocery store.
Let’s check it out.
First, let’s take a look at the good stuff, protein.
Protein is a greek word that means, “of prime importance”.
Note: I didn’t pick up very much protein during this grocery haul because my kitchen is already pretty well stocked with:
However, I did pick up the following high protein foods:
I eat a pile of eggs, but not just the egg whites, the whole egg.
Roughly 90% of the nutrients found in eggs comes from the yolk.
I also picked up some canned tuna.
I don’t eat canned tuna very often, but I’m going to use it to make some tuna salad.
I also picked up some frozen shrimp to make some delicious and healthy shrimp marinara.
Let’s move on to some fruit.
Mixed berries are always a staple in my diet as they make great snacks.
Although dried cranberries are not a staple in my diet, I did pick some up to add to my tuna salad recipe.
I usually add either pineapples or bananas to my post workout shake.
When it comes to the bananas, I always pick the most ripe ones.
Then when I bring the bananas home, I put them in a baggie and store them in my freezer.
I then add the frozen bananas to my post-workout smoothie.
I also picked up a mango as they are one of my favorite fruits.
I’m going to make a fruit salad using the pear, orange, and limes.
For beverages I have a coconut and almond milk blend.
I use this with the mixed berries and protein powder to make delicious dairy free ice cream.
I also picked up a big jug of water, since it helps me drink more water in a day.
I also picked up some nuts and nut butter.
Since I still have almonds in the fridge, I decided to go with some walnuts.
In addition to walnuts, I also picked up a staple in my diet, raw almond butter.
I also love ripe olives.
Avocados are always a staple in my diet.
I love adding them to my salads.
I’m not one of those guys who just eats boring food.
I add flavor to my fitness foods by making healthy dressings using:
I add mustard to my baked chicken recipe quite a bit.
I sometimes add honey to my post workout shakes.
Let’s move on to some of the vegetables.
What’s up Boston?
I use Boston lettuce as a wrap since I don’t usually eat grains or tortilla shells.
For example, when I’m making a tuna salad, I’ll wrap it up with some Boston lettuce leaves.
I also have some arugula for salads.
Yes, real men eat salads.
Cucumbers are an excellent high water vegetable source to add to your day.
I like to keep it spicy, so I enjoy the occasional jalapeno pepper.
Here are a few of the other vegetables that I picked up:
For more proof that I’m not just some dude who throws boring and tasteless food together, I love smells, tastes, and aromas of fresh herbs.
I picked up the following fresh herbs:
Oh you think potato chips and pizza is not Living Lean?
Well, cheat foods in moderation can be enjoyed as part of your cheat meal, when you follow these 6 cheat meal rules.
So based on this, I’m going to let this junk food slide this time.
Don’t forget this.
Living Lean is not about eating the same boring foods, day in and day out.
I’ve been there too.
If you are in a meal rut, meaning you’re bored with every single thing you eat, it’s time you go back to school and pick up a healthy recipe book.
Nothing adds creativity to your kitchen and taste buds more than a collection of healthy recipes.
