Grocery List

I found this grocery list in a book called the Abs Diet, which helps navigate you through exercises and meal plans that help you shed extra weight and burn calories, even when you're not exercising.
One of my favorite things in the book was the grocery list. It consists of all natural food, its not expensive, and its easy to remember.

All you need to remember is this saying: ABS POWER DIET

Beans (and other legumes)

Peanut butter (or almond butter, sun butter, etc)
Olive oil (use as dressing, and to cook with on low heat)
Whole wheat (tortillas, english muffins, etc)
Eggs (egg substitute if vegetarian)
Raspberries and other berries

Dairy milk, yogurt, cheese (soy if possible)
Instant plain oatmeal
Extra protein (flax seed, walnuts, almonds, hemp seed, etc)
Turkey and other lean meat (if vegetarian, add extra protein)

This list hits almost all of the basics that your body needs to function. If you are going vegetarian, substitute the meats and eggs for tofu, beans, lentils, quinoa, walnuts, almonds. 

Remember that a legume (like beans) combined with a grain (like rice) make a complete protein. So going veggie doesn't mean that you will be protein deprived!! In addition, by buying less meat you are at less risk for ingesting hormones and anti-biotics, you will be standing against animal cruelty, AND you will be doing the planet a favor by eating what Mother Earth naturally provides (organic vegetables are still grown from the earth while farm animals now-a-days are kept in their cages in terrible conditions)

Nevertheless! Remember ABS POWER DIET whenever you are in the store (or set my website as a favorite in your phone) and you will never come up empty handed! Not to mention you will
