The Great Book of Lists – Chapter 4.1 – Groceries

What does your grocery list look like?

I very rarely make grocery lists, which is a bad habit I should purge myself of as it results in some terrible snap decisions and forgotten, desperately-needed staples. I’m also in race-training season, which means some dietary changes are important… otherwise those long runs feel absolutely awful.

Anyway, if I were to make a list, based on average at-home eating situations* it would probably look something like this :


  • Oranges
  • Bananas
  • Tomatoes
  • Red Peppers
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Onions

Bakery/Dry Goods

  • Baguettes
  • Apple Oatmeal
  • Jasmine Rice
  • Waffle Mix
  • Pasta


  • Shaved Turkey
  • Italian Sausage
  • Roast Beef
  • Chicken Breast


  • Skim Milk
  • Greek Yogurt (all the flavors)
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Swiss Cheese
  • About 10 other cheeses

Well, that covers about 90% of what I eat in a normal week.

*I also eat out way more than I should. It’s way too hard to make your own sushi…
