The Effects of the Diet on my Grocery Shopping

I do not have a strict budget for my grocery shopping but, I know the good prices on many staples and I shop accordingly. My grocery shopping got pretty simple due to the menu plan the dietician gave me. Here is what my shopping list looks like:

Whole Wheat Bread
White Cheese (similar to Feta but not as sharp)
Plain Yogurt
Salad Greens, Tomatoes, Peppers and Cucumbers
Fresh Fruit

I have not purchased any meat or beans for a while since we had stocked up on them a couple of weeks ago and I had quiet a variety of beans in the pantry. We usually cook three vegetable dishes per week. We alternate between fish, red meat, poultry and beans. Since I am no longer buying junk food or any processed food, my grocery shopping is cheaper. Fish is cheap and I am planning to stock up on it these days for those months when there will be no fresh fish or when fish will be at a premium.

The daily menu is:

Whole Wheat Bread
White Cheese

Snack: Fruit

Veggie dish

Crackers and Yogurt
