Frozen fruit blends with no sugar added for smoothies, baby spinach, broccoli, chicken sausage, brown rice and/or quinoa are some of my staples. For snacks, I like rf string cheese, nuts (almonds and walnuts right now) and popcorn.

Totally depends upon your Way of Eating or WOE. My WOE is low carb high fat, no grains, dairy is good (but not yougart and milk for the most part).

That being said I will do some 'generic' 'must haves'. Eggs, great, filling, healthy. Avocado (filling, good fat). Coconut oil. MUST have for me. It is our go to cooking oil and I just eat it straight. Any vegetable oil, margarine I would personally trash it, way too high in omega 6. Exception olive oil not cooked with.

Some dark greens, spinach is mild to me, kale if you like it. Personally new for me macadamia nuts. Great source of fat and so filling they are cheap as I don't eat much. Dark chocolate, 85% plus coca if you wish and can handle eating it moderately.

Grass fed butter. Awesome superfood.

I am moving away from most fruits. Dr. Lustig has a lot about fructose. In any case experiment. I don't eat bananas anymore for instance and I am very mild in other fruits. Lots of berries are fairly good on carbs. I personally would never do a smoothie anymore. All that pulp, or most of it, is fiber. Not a good idea. And fruit juice is totally out in our house.

I've become very cautious with fruits. We always have mushrooms, broc, carrots, tomatoes in our house.

Oh lots of cheese in our house. Willing to spend more on grass fed cheese. Very tasty, filling, and good for me.

pastured eggs, broccoli, asparagus, onions... The first 100 pounds or so I ate a lot of cheese, but I'm cutting back because I think it's stalling me.

Lamb. I can easily get bored with pork and beef, but I love the taste of lamb. Actually just bought a whole one and very much looking forward to always having it in the freezer.
