Exercise of the Month - July 2009: “Shopping List to Fuel Your Workouts”

I continue to get asked a lot of similar questions relative to nutrition. One of my favorites is, “What should I buy when I do my grocery shopping to ensure I have enough energy for my workouts?” That being said, I thought this month I’d provide a list of some suggestions for you to consider next time you go shopping. The dozen suggestions that follow collectively possess ample antioxidants, lean protein, fiber, etc…

  • Wild salmon (try “sockeye” version if you haven’t yet
  • Bison meat (Trader Joe’s sells it as “Buffalo Steak Burgers”)
  • Rotisserie chicken (save money and head to Costco)
  • Avocado
  • Bell peppersgrocery list
  • Kale
  • All berries (buy organic if you can swing it financially)
  • Beans (all types)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (for salads/stir frying)
  • Canola oil (for baking)
  • Greek yogurt (I live for this stuff)
  • Omega 3 eggs (great protein source @ breakfast)
