As a personal trainer, I get asked many questions like what some of my favorite leg exercises are, how many times a week I work out and what I do, and what I eat. My meal plan is pretty simple and consists of foods that are going to help me recover and provide me with the energy I need to get through the day. I typically go to the grocery store once every week or so, and if you ever perused my pantry and refrigerator, these are the items you would always find.

My Grocery List

  • Steel cut oats
  • Dried cranberries
  • Grapefruit
  • Fresh berries
  • Tart cherries
  • Cucumbers
  • Lemons and limes
  • Avocados
  • Ground turkey
  • Salmon
  • Baby kale
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Broccoli florets
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Jalapenos
  • Red onions
  • Freshly ground almond butter
  • English muffins
  • Ezekiel bread
  • Mixed nuts
  • Ginger
  • Tajín seasoning

These are just my go-to items, and as the seasons change, so does my grocery list!
