    You should consider ditching the canned crap. Go fresh instead and either cook as needed... or cook ahead of time to prepare for future feedings. And do away with lunch meats, too (i.e., sliced turkey).

    For more, check the FAQ and use the search function to read up on all things Berardi.

    And, uh, eat your yolks (lest ye be tormented by thine D&S brethren)!

    Some of my grocery staples:

    Buffalo (Bison) Top Sirloin or NY Steak
    Ground Buffalo (but not pre-packaged or pre-ground)
    Organic Turkey Breast
    Wild Salmon
    Organic Spinach (Frozen)
    Organic Broccoli (Frozen)
    Organic Asparagus (Frozen)
    Organic Shiitake Mushrooms (Frozen)
    Organic Corn (Frozen)
    Organic Peas (Frozen)
    ITOEN Pure Green Tea
    Organic Blueberries (Frozen)
    Organic Nonfat Yogurt
    Organic Lowfat Cottage Cheese
    Organic Almonds
    Organic Oat Bran
    Bragg Olive Oil
    Bragg ACV
    Bragg Seasoning
    Organic Pasteurized Egg Whites
    Organic Omega-3 Eggs
    Organic Red Pepper Hummus
    Organic Raw Honey

    Current Supplements:

    Fish Oil (800/400 per serving)
    NSI Creapure Creatine Monohydrate
    Greens+ Wild Berry Burst
    NSI R-Lipoic Acid
    TP Beta Alanine
    TP WMS
    TP Custom Protein (85 Hydro Whey / 15 Hydro Casein)
    TP Instantized BCAA Powder
    Endurox R4
    Heaven Sent Balanced Essentials

    Hope this helps...

    I buy as much whole foods as possible. Organic stuff is nice, but it's also really expensive. If money is no option buy as much organic as you can.

    I really think organic is basically a waste of money, not because "organic" isn't superior, but because the regulations involving calling something organic are lax enough that producers get away w/ far too much shit.

    My usual grocery list...

    Fresh:
    Brocolli
    Spinach
    Apples
    Bananas
    Chicken
    Lean Ground Beef

    Frozen:
    Brocolli
    Berries
    Chicken

    Dairy/Eggs:
    O-3 eggs
    Skim Milk
    Cottage Cheese
    Butter

    Dry:
    Olive Oil
    Sunflower Seeds
    Almonds
    Walnuts
    BestLife Wraps
    Pickles
    Oats
    Naturally More PB (this shit is amazing)

    Theres prolly more but thats all I can think of now.

    Why get rid of the canned tuna and salmon? I researched it a little and found some stuff on mercury levels which are obviously bad for you and if you don't watch it the sodium it is out of this world.
    But if you can't afford fresh all the time wouldn't the can be an only option even with the risk involved? Or is the risk really not worth it?

    canned meat......jesus we are not in a full fledged recession yet! Take a look at the nutritional info on one of your cans and see what the daily percentage of sodium intake will be from one can. My guess would be in the range of 50% or more. Ditch that crap

    I'm sure it's bad. Tuna and salmon here is around 8-10 dollars a pound fresh.

    NE-PATRIOTS888, agreed. It's pretty nasty. And Cat's love me. I just need more dedication. Thanks for the gut check.

    so whats the deal with frozen vegetables? I completely forgot they existed. Is it a pain to defrost though? I assume you get frozen vegetables because you can store them for a lot longer?

    You guys are right, the sodium and the preservatives should make one want to avoid canned meat. But it is might convenient.

    Just curious when I go to bed what can I have with cottage cheese?

    Just tried 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese, 1/2 of nonfat yogurt, cinnamon, 1 packet of splenda and a little bit of vanilla as my bedtime snack. It was pretty good. I can see myself eating this before bed with no problem.

    I have a dilemma on mon. weds and thurs. I have work till about noon, and then class till about 4:15 pm, then bjj or muay thai right after. I don't have access to a fridge after I leave work till I come home at night.

    My plan for tomorrow is
    breakfast at 6:20 am
    banana at about 9
    10:45 am salmon and veggies
    1 pm salmon and veggies
    3pm banana
    get to gym at about 5 and workout
    6pm greens+ with myoplex orignal packet
    6:30 to 8:45 BJJ
    9:15 pm veggies and prolly salmon again
    11:15 pm cottage cheese, yogurt snack

    My question is should I have another greens+ with myoplex snack at about 4 pm? My plan is to cut weight.

    You can always freeze fresh veggies for storage. I just prefer to buy them frozen from the get-go (for convenience and because -- if done properly -- frozen veggies can be fresher than the "fresh" stuff you see under the mist).

    I don't bother defrosting. I just toss them into a pan sprayed with the nonstick stuff and sautee with some seasoning. Others here choose to sautee their frozen veggies with a bit of EVOO.

    EVOO = Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Seasoning = Bragg Sprinkle (http://www.bragg.com)
