    So...what's your weekly grocery list like? or if you eat out a lot, what do you normally get? I would like to know how many of you fit guys eat compared to what my fat ass eats. icon_lol.gif Thank you.


    Mine this week:
    (I eat out for Sushi once or twice a week, and usually get a lunch salad three times a week (usually a grilled salmon salad from Panera Bread or a grilled chicken salad somewhere else)

    1- Watermelon
    1 pack (8 burgers) - Angus Beef Burgers
    2 - Sushi (1 rainbow rolls / 1 salmon avocado rolls) drenching in soy sauce ;)
    1 of each - Grilled Chicken Strips / Tortillas / Lettuce / cheese / salsa (to make wraps)
    3- Orgain chocolate meal replacement drinks
    2- Mixed Salads
    1 - Olives
    2 - Avocados
    1- Water (2.5 gallon)

    This summer's diet is rather tricky because I'm working out of state on contract, living in a hotel with nothing but a mini-fridge (no freezer) and a microwave.

    So, currently, a modified version of the caveman diet is about all I can do, along with my weekly sashimi platters and maybe one sushi roll (different roll each time - love it all). I also thrive on sandwich meat, which is the only processed food I'll eat.

    Once I get back home (after labor Day) my diet will substantially improve.

    PS. Why do bananas spoil so quickly? I never can finish a 6pack of them before they're spoiled. icon_lol.gif

    We mainly get cleaning stuff and paper products, and milk for coffee & breakfast. Most of our meals are eaten out. When my partner decides to cook at home, mainly when we have guests over but rarely for just the 2 of us alone, then we shop off his dinner list, everything fresh for that night. They tend to be Italian dishes, so pasta and tomato sauce, aided with fresh herbs from his garden.

    BTW, I had the most fantastic pair of whole Maine lobsters last night, at a local place we know to which we invited 4 other people for their first time. We're all from the Northeast, mostly the NYC area, and this restaurant specializes in seafood items from there. They were just overwhelmed, we were so happy with their delighted reaction. You always sweat a little that your guests won't like a place you've taken them, but this worked out perfectly.

    Second BTW: when we do go supermarket shopping, I use an iPhone app called Grocery iQ. I had a similar thing on my previous Palm PDA for years. I highly recommend it for iPhone users.

    It's amazing! It uses the iPhone camera to read the bar code of things we buy, and then automatically enters them into my Favorites list for future reference (except for local house brands). And I record what aisle number the item is in, of the store we always use, so that when I make my shopping list, it's sorted in aisle order.

    No running around back and forth, I just go to each aisle in sequence, and skip those aisles where I have nothing to buy. Quick & easy, in & out, since I absolutely HATE supermarkets! LOL!

    I feel you on the bananas. I make smoothies every now and again with them but they spoil so fast. I always get them as green as possible.

    I get lunch meat also, but I like to eat it alone with no bread. Love honey maple turkey.

    I got some green bananas a few days ago. They spotted before turning yellow, and were spoiled inside when they were finally yellow enough to look "ripe." icon_lol.gif

    when you walk in the grocery store, does the song from your profile play when you start running through the aisles shopping?
