10 FOODS I ALWAYS BUY | healthy grocery essentials

And by shopping at the same time every week, you can more easily get into the routine of buying healthier food automatically. If you run out of something and have to go back to the store mid-week, only buy what you went there to buy (make a list!). Shop the perimeter of the grocery store, where fresh foods like fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat, and fish are usually located. Avoid the center aisles where junk foods lurk.

Choose “real” foods. “Healthy eating choices start with the groceries you have on hand. Grocery shop with a plan and shopping list. Do not attempt to grocery shop when you are hungry, as you will be surprised at the significant number of impulse buys in your cart.” -Vandana Sheth, RDN, CDE, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Use these tips to avoid the brain strain while shopping online or in-person at the store.

Read food nutrition labels, even for so-called “healthier” foods. Ingredients and nutrient content can vary a lot by brand and preparation. When there’s more than one choice, compare labels. “If you apply that general concept to grocery shopping, you’re automatically starting at a healthier place due to overall elimination of the added sugars, fat.

If you’re trying to shop healthy on a budget, choose generic items and store brands which are often significantly cheaper than name brands. In most supermarkets, the less expensive generic products are placed on the top and bottom shelves, while higher priced products are. Use up produce that will spoil quickly, such as leafy greens and thin-skinned berries toward the beginning of the week and rely on your pantry staples and frozen goods toward the end. Root. Well, some would argue that if your cupboards are bare you should invest in a starter pantry — an assortment of grains, canned goods, snacks, condiments, oils, seasonings and dairy products.

Pettis recommends having a grocery list to know exactly what you need and how much of it to reduce time browsing. “When you’re in the grocery store, you should only touch items you plan to buy.

  • I’m not overly impressed by this videos but we need less food shaming in this country and more food education. Half of the issue is the husband doesn’t think it’s his job to help raise his kid, and the mom is so stressed that she mentally checks out. I personally recommend sitting down and looking at bank statements, and calculate the cost of quick family sized meals/sized(E.I. Stouffer’s lasagna/Mac n cheese + home made chicken), vs eating out cost.

    A lot of times people feel overwhelmed by the initial cost at the grocery store, but end up forking out twice as much on fast food. Also, the oven is your best friend. I bake 4-5 nights or more just because it’s easy. Even if I’m having a mental break down or severaly depressed, I can usually throw some meat and veggies in the oven, and alternate spices combinations, and make some canned sides. I’m sure the YouTube culinary gods are going to jump down me, but if you are at the end of your physical or mental rope, bake bake bake and season the hell out of that food

  • LOL LOL… This video is so funny. I love that HUGE red X that pops up on the naughty foods… I laugh each time it happens coz that’s exactly where I head to lol. Great video guys. New Subscriber… thumbs up! London UK

  • Fun fact, corporations are guilty of the most pollution and carbon footprints. Not a single consumer lady on YouTube trying to do her shopping.

  • OLW sweet chili, nej, inte så “healthy” kanske som du säger i videon 😉 Ett bra tips är att läsa innehållsförteckningen. Kul video, alltid kul att se vad andra människor handlar 😉

  • pb and j?? come ON theres 100% something better, make a lasagna, pasta dish or even homemade pizza WITH the kids, where they can choose their toppings. Its 100% cheaper making your own pizza than buying one.. and the kids will find it fun to feel like they just cooked their own dinner

  • The whole part from the frozen raspberries and blueberries to the Pepsi Max was my favorite. “LOVE THEM” slams bags together and then patting the Pepsi �� soooo adorable!

  • I buy a lot of these as well. I have Gastroparesis so I am limited in my fruits/veggies, and can’t eat whole grains so I rely on lean proteins, rice, and easily digestible cooked veggies. fish, eggs, chicken, mushrooms, zucchini, cooked spinach (no raw for me), cooked carrots, potatoes, avocados, bananas.

  • Hi Megan, thank you for the awesome video again. I am a little confused about the oils. Isn’t canola oil better for cooking than olive oil due to the heat tolerance?

  • I agree to shop the perimeters…but sorry Chris and Heidi you forgot to tell people to stay away from GMO foods…to check labels for that…also a lot of produce is now irradiated people should avoid those you know they are irradiated as the sticker starts with a 3…GMO produce starts with 8, on the sticker, and more raw and less meat more vegetarian is much healthier as animals are being injected with hormones and have more cancerous germs in their bodies…there are many vegan body builders that do just find using nuts and legumes as their sources of proteins and vegan protein powders…. http://www.totaltruth.ca/health/ for amazing raw food recipes….

  • good tips; However, right at the beginning of the clip you folks started to pick veggies (especially peppers) that must be Organic, because they are on the list of Dirty dozen fruits and Veggies( laden with Pesticides).

  • Omg! Loved the Pepsi max! I cannot live without Coke Zero! I love how real you are! Super realistic “this is life and this is reality “ couldn’t have said it better myself! ����

  • 1. Root vegetables
    2. Leafy greens
    3. Frozen fruit/vegetables
    4. Bananas
    5. Nuts/seeds
    6. Nut/seed butter
    7. Protein sources
    8. Eggs
    9. Apple cider vinegar
    10. Good quality oil

  • Enjoyed this video very much and would also love to see some salad dressing recipes.
    My husband is suffering from throat cancer and I wonder if you have any suggestions for getting him back on the healthy track. After battling a long stretch in the hospital due to a bacteria he caught in the ICU he has lost a lot of muscle mass and appetite would appreciate any hints.

  • Heidi, I spent the 2018 year working on my dissertation and did not work out at all. How can I begin after a whole year of desk life? I feel lost. Help me please.

  • A quick tip for you!
    Carrots last long, but to make them last even longer I store them in a tupperware/jar full of water. Last time I bought a big batch of carrots was a month ago and I have just eaten the last one today. And it was as fresh and crunchy as if it wash just bought!!!!

  • Hi Bobby, Just wanted to say that I enjoy your channel thanks for the info. Can you please tell me what is carbalose flour is? I was thinking of trying carbquick baking mix and I’d like to know what that is. Thx

  • Our staples are almost identical lol except instead of the spring mix I just like Spinich. I usually use that for eggs, salads, and smoothies ��

  • $200 at week?!… Thats why you need to have a list and make a menu plan… Wow… I thought i was going to get coupon ideas lol

  • If you work out, your entitled to some indulgence. Basically when I worked out. We were allowed to have like a one day weekend binge. On anything, it has no effect because you’re that’s why you’re working out right! So you can have your one day off binge and treat yourself. ����

  • I have all these things weekly too ☺️ and funnily enough I learnt some of these food habits from watching your videos over the past year! For eg, like green leafy salads/leaves. I LOVE that in one of your recent videos you even say that eating your greens daily is an act of self careYES! That is revolutionary and so so true!! I remember that when I’m feeling low. BTW I much prefer your channel to Pick Up Limes�� looking forward to seeing you grow �� you deserve it xxx

  • I’m vegan. I’ve been trying to lose weight but I keep gaining. My iron is level 5, which means I’m constantly tired. I cant even workout. I literally tried eating only whole foods and I ended up gaining. I have made it to my goal before. I was 160, got down to 130 in a year. But after 2 years I’ve gained all the weight back. It’s so frustrating because I know the feeling of a flat tummy, and seeing the scale number be 30 lbs lighter. I’m so fed up.

  • Check the recent Consumers Reports magazine. They found no difference between triple washed and non washed greens. Both needed to be washed.

  • Thank u for this video! We have almost the same staples! I would love a video on herbs for cooking. Which ones are good for what. That would be amazing since I am just learning about them. ❤️

  • We always have rolled oats, rice, pasta, wow butter, salad greens, bananas, Strawberries, frozen blueberries and black beans, onion and tofu. We always have those things.

  • I always rice the kale stalks and cook them until tender. Don’t waste those nutrients! There’s enough science telling us that they’re just as good as the leaves.

  • I watched extreme weight loss show �� I’m not obese but I’m overweight and I decided to change my life I didn’t want to keep gaining weight and be obese �� thanks Chris and Heidi
    ur videos from extreme weight loss motivated me to do better in life ��������

  • Yas you help keep me on track & pleases to say I have all that you’ve mentioned today. Thanks for the inspirationmuch love from Brisbane, Australia ����

  • at ranch 99 they have bananas that are super ripe they put them in a really big brown bag and sell them for dirty cheap 1-2 dollars. you could freeze them.

  • I love smoothies as well!! People ask me, “How do you love smoothies?”..My response, “How do you not?!” ����
    I relate to all these staples in my house!!

  • Have most that you mentioned and also dates. They last for a good long time in the frig if you need them to. I like them in salads and smoothies.

  • I order groceries online etc. Instacart stole from my debit card, so cancelled the card, and sorry I did not check hiw they stole from shoppers and customers.

  • A trick I learned is to buy chicken breasts and immediately toss them in the crockpot and shred them and divide into 3 or 4 bags for meal prep. Do it with hamburger meat and freeze it. I also learned to not go shopping unless you have an hour after shopping to prep.

  • OK so you mean to tell me they give their kids peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and they spent at least $10-$15 ordering pizza yeah really smart���� If they was smarter they would use coupons

  • Makes me laugh that there is an author of books out there, and probably more, that is creaming in mega dollars from the most basic of food management skills that all women and men should have competent knowledge of without shelling out to an author.

  • I HEAT TREAT MY FRUITS AND VEGETABLES EVEN MY LETTUCE…I FILL ONE SIDE OF MY SINK WITH WARM WATER WITH A FEW DROPS OF CASTILLE SOAP OR MY SEVENTH GENERATION DISH SOAP WHICH IS ALL NATURAL..I MAKE THE VERY WARM WATER SLIGHTLY SOAPY ENOUGH TO SEE SOME BUBBLES FLOATING ON SURFACE OF WATER, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SINK I PLUG AND FILL WITH COLD WATER WITH A PITCHER FULL OF ICE TO THE WATER I SWIRL WITH MY HAND TO ENSURE WATER IS SUPER ICY COLD I THEN LAY OUT ON THE COUNTER NEXT TO ICY WATER SOME BATH TOWELS AND I HAVE PAPER TOWELS UNROLLED AND KAY THEM NEXT TO THE BATH TOWEL AND THEN I START WITH MY FRUITS MY MANGOS ORANGES GRAPES APPLES AND I DUMP THEM INTO THE WARM SOAPY WATER I COUNT TO 30 WHILE SWILRING AND MANUALLY MOVING THE FRUIT TO ENSURE IT IS BEING WASHED THEN BY THE HANDFUL I QUICKLY SINK INTO MY ICY WATER BATH AND I LEAVE THE FRUIT THERE UNTIL I HAVE REMOVED ALL FRUIT FROM THE SUDSY SIDE..THEN MY HANDFULS I SCOOP UP THE FRUIT GIVE A SWOOPING SHAKE AND THEN SCATTER ACROSS THE BATH OR BEACH TOWEL.

  • Omg thank god you put some Pepsi & chocolate in there cause I started to feel bad about myself with all the veggies you bought �� question: do you ever eat pasta or rice?

  • Great video I really your the video it educated and helpful big respect ������ got inspiration for my next YouTube video keep it up

    https://youtu.be/vkBNLHtBbSo

  • Please think about using reusable cotton nets for your veggies ant fruits… its really not neccesary to use single use plastic bags. Think about the planet and the future… especially for your child who have to live on this planet even longer….

  • love you Heidi and Chris, but you failed miserably with healthy choices. I didn’t see anything organic, that wheat bread wasn’t the best, how much sugar was in that sauce? and the pasta wasn’t the greatest either.

  • Wow! We must have the same pantry and fridge ��. I would also add almond milk, a variety of dry beans and rices, and for sure bone broth. This was great, thanks.

  • i lived in sweden for 4 months and also ate the raspberries you bought, but did you know that they can cause diarrhea or even norovirus because they’re from serbia if i remember correctly, and they should be boiled always before you eat them. it’s a shame because they’re really tasty but i’m am afraid to eat them after reading about the virus thing��

  • June Cleaver never fed Wally and Beaver peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Ward Cleaver would never put up with pizza after a hard days work.

  • The plastic thing I think here in the north is because not to ruin food in the winters.. otherwise it freeze from the store to home..

  • Hello love you, you are awesome just FYI If you wrap hard avocados in newspaper and place them in a kind of dark and cool place they’ll be good in one or two days try it just saying

  • My list is basically exactly the same as yours! Also, I buy frozen kale for my smoothies. I use the spring mix containers for my salads everyday, but I like the frozen kale for smoothies better and it lasts way longer

  • For all the women complaining about how men never help out… were they raised in households where the boys did chores and helped out? Probably not! Old habits die hard and in this case never die! Lesson: please have expectations from your sons to help out in the kitchen. Teach them how to cook and clean as young as you can so it will be habit for them when they settle down. We have to change the cycle.

  • Oh dear so bad. I guess they need extreme cases like this or they wouldn’t have a show. Hard though to believe this couple were as bad as that giving peanut butter and jelly for dinner.

  • the more a n apple is Shining the ore wax or pesticide is on it, I truly hope that there are organic store sections from Farmers in the area each stores.soon.

  • Double each recipe… cook 3 times eat 6 times. Salmon over rice and broccoli on Monday and Wednesday…pasta with red sauce on Tuesday, with white sauce on Friday. Bags of salad with Both. Thursday and Sunday ( the same meal) work smarter, not harder. Or batch cook on Saturday all the weeks meals and freeze for upcoming. Just common sense.

  • Also there are a lot organic fertilizers and insecticides that are just as harmful so buyer beware. I like your channel, have give a lot of useful information.

  • Not only is my freezer is my friend, I use my crock pot alot too to cook meals. Any leftovers I either freeze or I have it for lunch the next day.

  • So many people in the comments section are retarded. Why would any sane person assume that they eat like this regularly? People take a nearly 7 Minute video and judge these people’s entire lives. It’s stupid.

  • Is no one going to mention them eating pizza with a FORK AND KNIFE? Oh hell no. They don’t eat pizza they just did it for the cameras. It was like watching monkeys navigate an iPhone.

  • Sandwiches are not a dinner. Sandwiches are lunch. Have parents not discovered grocery shopping online??? No wasted time going to stores!

  • We are a big family and we try to eat healty as much as we can… but it is hard… nuts, seeds and frozen berries are really expensive to buy every week.

  • That mother looks confused and overwhelmed by the info and assessment. If she doesn’t know what’s in her own fridge or pantry….maybe address that first.

    Having done that this is yet another example supporting the idea that there should be mandatory classes WITH VALIDATION on raising kidsincluding nutrition, exercise, safety, healthcare, economics and money management for new parents. It’s just information everyone has instant access to on the world wide web… at your fingertips LITERALLY.

  • Note: RoundUp is known as a
    “post emergence” herbicide, meaning that is cannot be used until after
    the weed species has sprouted, or ’emerged’. RoundUp is an extremely
    effective herbicide, but it is also non-selective herbicide: it will
    kill almost all species of, both wanted (crops, grass) and unwanted (weeds).

  • When you use olive oil for a salad dressing do you store it in the fridge? I make my own dressings regularly but I mostly make just a salad worth at a time. I wanted to save it in the fridge but the olive oil gets so thick. What do you do?

  • My Staples (cheap & simple)
    Eggs
    Spinach (could be blended with orange juice for smoothies)
    Frozen berries
    Red peppers (contains 3 times more Vitamin C than an orange, per 190mg)
    Tuna
    Oats or whole wheat bread
    Light mayonnaise for sandwich making
    Turmeric powder (can be used in tea, cooking, smoothies)
    Olive oil
    Potatoes, onions
    Bananas

  • a lot of great value brands…and those tortillas are white bread. this haul is hardly healthy, pretty basic and cheap. Most people are aware of these cheap options.

  • GoPro filming for grocery shopping video is such a good idea because you have a very clear frame of items (no fumbling with traditional camera) while respecting the privacy of your fellow shoppers. Amazing content, Hanna ❤️ We love you!!!

  • Love your informative videos! Would love to see you do a video on which varieties of each fruit and vegetable are the most nutritious! Jo Robinson has written a book, “Eating on the Wild Side The Missing Link to Optimum Health” which discusses this topic. Am thinking I can save on grocery bill and boost health of my family by buying varieties of produce that are nutrient dense as well as low in pesticides.

  • Did he just touch all over those skinny peppers and then throw them back?! Otherwise more informative video than I thought it would be.

  • I did that with the curly parsley right before the pandemic started and change the water maybe once a week and it lasted a month-and-a-half without yellow. every time I change the water I slightly trim to the bottom of the stems again. So that was about 6 or 7 weeks.

  • Hi Meghan. Can I ask you something related with your video making process? Do you shoot all your videos by yourself? Or you have a cameraman? Love all your videos

  • Awesome Content!!!! I feel so much more knowledgeable about the foods I purchase and consume. This is like taking the little red pill. Grocery Shopping will never be the same again.

  • Found you last night and I am not letting go…You are awesome…Your knowledge is astounding…Thank you…Oh and baby Rose is the most beautiful wee one…

  • Bobby could you please make a video on spinach cause I´m prone to anemia and I try eating as much of this as possible you mean no baby spinach that has no iron? what about mushrooms? maybe a video on how to get iron?

  • I absolutely love your channel! I like that you’re living mindful, simple and sustainable without going to extremes, like I blame myself for not being zero waste… Nobody is perfect and if we all make small changes we will change the world. I love you so much! ��

  • Aseel got the keys to saving money, store brand definitely saves you a couple bucks. Lol btw you caught me when you picked up the Nutella.

  • Inflation fighting foods or good meals to beat inflation, does and don’ts and arthritis killing foods��Do you ever get over load on rules how do you keep this in your minds? Speaking of that what should we avoid eating to stop from getting Alchimers?

  • Price should be a bit different here in Holland. But i like to buy food in bulk. Especially chicken. Beef is still a bit expensive here.

  • Thanks for sharing your list, mine is similar and I always have avocados and ACV as well. I had a cyst and once I started to added to my water my cyst shrunk!

  • Bobby, thank you. (Art too.) I’m learning a lot from your videos. You often mention keto and paleo diets. Might you consider plant-based preferences?

  • Send the husband to a culinary classes at night class. He’ll become a better helper when it’s about cooking and spend time on simple dishes are better than a delivery pizza each night.

  • I enjoy your videos. I’m changing my eating habits and I am learning soo much from you.. I also shared your link with my friends and family.

  • I just started watching the videos and I am so excited to go on my next shopping trip. I am learning so much. It’s a shame that you have to ask permission or dodge employees at these stores. Keep doing what your doing. Do you have a video on how to get rid of all the bad foods that are in our pantry and frig?

  • Stories like this are very disappointing and fodder for the argument should women work at all. In 2014 when this posted the crock pot has been invented and 200 budget is entirelyy to much for 5 meals I can cook five meals in an. Saturday afternoon. Hey smart couple you’re lazy……..thaw meat the night before so you are not starting with frozen……..so much wrong with this couples thought process

  • Just when I think I am done watching I am looking form more videos to watch. I would say that I am addicted to your videos, so much to learn. Great job.

  • Unbelievable that she is so lazy, that she doesn’t cook a home cooked meal for her 2 little angels. Children need good healthy food for their brain developing and their immune systems, so they can grow up to being strong adults. I don’t understand how a mother can be like that �� and for the dad, he is not interested in his family period! The dad is equally responsible for his children well being!!

  • Hi Meghan,
    I would love if you could make a video explaining when to use the different types of oils and its different benefits, I get really confused with this topic.
    Thanks

  • Walmart has a program to reduce food waste, and it donates to charity meaning that it has been helping people already before you knew it was there. It is doing its best. Instead of criticizing it, how about you try to be 100% perfect, or be in that man’s shoes?

  • We have the same things! I use rice vinegar instead of apple cider, and I have to avoid anything spicy or everything I can no longer digest (like onions).

    You make me feel good about my choices, when other people only see my body and assume bad things about me.

  • I really wish influencers would show that they’re responsible consumers by buying domestic products and using less plastic! You have a great platform to be a good example to your fans (btw I’m a huge fan too) and it would bring more interesting content too

  • I’m halfway through your shopping trip but as far as I can see, you actually use way less plastic than most people I know in the states. Are you supposed to just have a bunch of parsnips rolling around your cart or something? I think you did fine.

  • They taught her wrong look u want to spend time with your family and stay on top of every thing get u containers that store well in the fridge dice u up a container of yellow onions.. red onions… bell pepper.. then do another one with chopped yellow onions I do meal prep those are the hardest things to do is cutting and dicing.. the night before u can have your meat seasoned and marinating in the fridge so u can just cook it when u get home.. She needs to do a crock pot meal where u have your meat potatoes carrots and onions. To. I had a rotisserie cooker to so she could just season the chicken and put it in there while kids are getting baths homework and things and I think its done in like 40 minutes. They already had salad in the fridge to so it’s really easy..

  • I loved the red crosses. I want to lose 40 pounds this year and I hope I lose at least 20. I shopped today this way mainly loading up on spices, salts and dairy and leaving out all the sugary and starchy kinds of stuff. We do get our vegetables from the market fresh.

  • Thanks for this.i have written them all down on my food shop ideas list. I never think to get nut butter. It looks more healthy than nutella or maple syrup

  • Very similar to my choices �� Except that i dont like artificial sodas..But i really like to treat myself with some bajadera and raffaellos �� aaaand i love m&m candies ��

  • Yea the real issue is they don’t know how to cook…Spanish and black people can throw a meal together out of eggs rice and potatoes

  • Did that $60 for groceries include everything she already had at home? They purchased that at some point and it should have been counted in the total.

  • Why everything in separate plastic bags?? Girl, you are Looking so good for your own health����BUT…..what is about the Health our mother Earth

  • Greetings from Denmark! ���� So great to see a Scandinavian vlogger doing a shopping haul, because we have quite similar products.

  • Girl! Please get yourself some reusable produce bags ❤️ Especially with all the veg n fruit you can save the planet from all that single use plastic!

  • To keep boxed spinach fresh, place a few paper towels inside — I wrap it around the bottom & top of leaves to absorb moisture. Keeps them fresh a few days linger!

  • I just wish you didn’t turn up the tune at the end of every single statment. You sound awful,but what you say is good. It’s still painful though

  • Dude you know nothing about farming and present what you ‘heard’ as fact. What are some facts about you? Are you just some guy on the internet or someone with real exp that can actually proof what you claiming to be right and wrong. You sound like a talking blog with no real evidence.

  • Hello!
    How did you become a holistic nutritionist? I’m very interested in the work you do. I’m currently healing my tummy while pregnant. I’m on a all cooked diet right now. Thank you for your videos.

  • The tough kale makes excellent cream soup or smoothies.
    I grab it when its on sale and throw it in the freezer whole. When ready to use I cut it up and use it.
    You may have to strain it if u dont like the fibrous texture.

  • Hello Megan! Great video as usual! A staple I get are avocados. I’ve started to have one a day for a while now. Also, I started having greens like salads with every meal since I saw that you did that in one of your videos. I found it interesting to have greens for breakfast when I first tried it, but now I do it each day.

  • Really love these kinds of videos. I am looking for new things to try and new ways to eat healthy,but get some variety. I would love to see more lunch and dinner ideas

  • For nonUS Citizes, it is very difficult to really find healthy Food, no healthy full grain bread, everything is added with sugar or Aspartam, (sweetner), Nothing that Comes Fresh is truely healthy. Everything precooked, There should be some packages with easy signs to recognize what is organic and what is free from sweetner, too much sugar or other added Things as Glutamate etc ….so much poisionong precooked Food, I really do not want to eat Food there longer then a month and i`d get tired of all the junk temptatoin, it is truly difficult, possible but difficult. I hope that farmer will fight back with real frsh vegs and fruits for totally vegan and organic Food in america in the future

  • I also do have a little addiction on Pepsi max, haha I laughed so much when you pretended that you took 4 Pepsi max bottles!
    Btw I love you and all of your videos, you are such an inspiration to me.
    I do also like that you are Swedish, because then I can recognize some food you are buying because I am from Norway!
    I like to watch videos where you are shopping food, please keep on doing that:)

  • Hej Hanna. Jätte bra video. Vet att det beror på var man handlar och vilka märken man handlar men hur mycket handlade du för? Ett stort problem för mig är att jag vill äta fräsch mat men inte riktigt har ekonomin för det (är en fattig student). Skulle bara vara kul att veta på ett ungefär och om man faktiskt har råd att ta några av dina tips. Kram ❤️

  • here in Germany, I found potatoes from mexico. Fresh potatoes can you believe that?? And that was close to a landscape area close to Hamburg. ;O

  • Being an ex-florist, I would change your steps just slightly, cut the parsley last just before you put it in water. The stems will be more receptive to the water as it will not be exposed to the oxygen in the air to long.

  • Hanna!!!!! I used to follow you on insta but I didn’t get to know you well. I just found this video and omg I LOVE HOW YOU ARE and ACT!:) super helpful video thank you!! Ill be subscribing:)

  • It’s amazing what you can cook from your pantry Money was really tight one week and I was able to make it stretch and just get a few fresh veggies one week to the point my fridge was completely empty, meal plan and you will save money also shopping every 2 weeks saves you a lot of money

  • Gluten is poison. sorry. Thomas’s English muffins? oh my god. I am a nutritionist and would NEVER allow what you recommend. Pasta? Storing it in plastic? oh my god…Have you heard of BPA?

  • Would love a show on how to reduce plastic bag consumption..and those plastic spinach boxes are awful. Don’t think that all that plastic is being recycled properly.. it isn’t!

  • I too buy most of your list except carrots as I always tend to forget it and throw it away. You forgot cucumbers and Lemons or Lime.
    Love you ❤️

  • I’m glad I’m shopping right. Looks like my cart when I go! I avoid the snack/soda aisle like a plague. And I’m glad you said whole wheat bagels and English muffins are ok, love them!

  • For a minute there I thought you were vegan, and while I love vegan vlogs and try some meet free meals to reduce my meat cosumption, sometimes I want to see something healthy that isn’t vegan. As I said, I was almost certain you are until I saw the salmon and just then I knew I had found the perfect channel for me❤

  • 1. hearty-root vegetables (carrot, squash, potato, parsnip)
    2. leafy greens (kale, letucce, arugula, spinach)
    3. frozen fruits/veggies (berries, pineapple, peas, green beans)
    4. bananas
    5. nuts/seeds (walnuts, pecans, hemp seeds)
    6. nut/seed butter (sunflower, almond, tahini)
    7. protein source (chicken breast, ground turkey, fish, lentils)
    8. eggs
    9. apple cider vinegar
    10. good quality oil (olive, avocado, coconut)

  • They have chicken and bell peppers and canned goods and yet they ordered pizza and make peanut butter jelly for dinner? Laziness! Laziness is what it is. Don’t even get me started. ��

  • I would love to see a video on boiling eggs. I can’t consistently boil them so the shells come off easily. Thanks! Love your channel!

  • I would love to see a video like this where you use vegan foods:) also explaining what you can have on high and low carb days. I’m still confused about the sauces if I can have tomato purée (100% tomato) on my food for example!

  • I will always commend the Powells for their life time of health and wellness and for ever changing people’s life in a for the better. the only problem with what they are not bring to reality is Money, Time and more money. I should know because I have spent the better part of my life in the gym and I cannot tell you how that has made me a better man, husband and dad. The truth and the fact is. Eating healthy and what we in fitness or body building call clean eating is very hard. The time it’s takes to plan, spend and do is why most people give up on that very important goal. So if you take most average families there is no way they can put that into their budget. I was very lucky because when I started body building I was only 16 and long before I got married and had kids I was is top shape and still I always look at it like this for my self. I am always trying to improve my self, my work outs and that is so hard to do. So because I was so much into fitness long before I met my wife I already was living a healthy life style so when you are trying to do all that right in the middle of a busy life and with a family. That’s very difficult to do.But and yes there is a but. Never give up. Never believe in the word I cant. You just very much have to limit what you do intake through out the day and mostly at night and I know how hard that is. The night time with kids and you look over and your little girls are eating their snack and that thought go’s thru your head. woohoo. A bag of pop-corn sounds so good and yes it does of course it does but walk away. Put it down. Don’t give in and that’s the hardest part to living and eating a healthy life style. Make sure that a lot of vegs are eaten. I get it. Not all of us has a personal assistant running around for us all day taking care of errands while your working on your self to be bigger and better at what ever your goals may be. Eating healthy, Protein and just trying to do the over all right thing for your self and family can and will get costly. Proteins ok people please to your home work before buying proteins. Just because a product say’s 30g of protein that doesn’t mean it’s the right protein for you or your health. Look, research and learn before you buy. That’s a big part of living a healthy life style. So many proteins have fillers in them that there is no way I personally would ever use. Again. Thank you to the Powells for all the hard work they do and the message they put out there for us all to learn. P.S. Ok Chris. Any time you want to work out, Bring it. I’m ready. Christopher

  • They are ziplock whores. How many times did they need to prominently show them at they end? I’m sure they didn’t need three packs of reusable containers, they should have some. Their video was regurgitated simplistic nonsense, this was just a ziplock commercial.

  • Love all the information. Thanks so much for making these videos. Please though, DON’T WEAR THAT SHIRT AGAIN A BIT DISTURBING.:-)

  • I love this video! You forgot beans though and other carbohydrates like rice and quinoa. Would like to see what you guys recommend. Could you do a video on slow burning vs fast burning carbs and how to utilize them effectively for weight loss?

  • Based on the color of that Salmon, that’s farmed Salmon and not wild caught. One way of getting in masses amounts of antibiotics and hormones right there. Run �� sickest food in the universe.

  • Love all of your pantry staples…I also always have flaxseed, wheat bran and apples on hand, also canned black beans (no salt) and lentils, for protein. Btw: you are so beautiful! Love your channel!

After watching Catchy Cravings, please swing over to my channel: @MichellePhammy! and check out my videos. Would love the support and lets continue to share ideas!

  • 5:57 You make a good observation about the level of stress induced by shopping when the store is really busy so, whilst I have thought about making a list in an order that accords with the store layout, I haven’t really thought about stress. Yet, I do find that I resist grocery shopping until almost closing time (which, of course, sometimes presents its own annoyance when I find that an item I want has already run out!).
