There are a few staple foods I like to include in the supermarket haul that ensures I'll stay on track and keep me fuelled! Of course, your nutrition all comes down to taste but I thought I would share with you what I tend to go for.
My greens come from Spinach, Broccoli and Green Beans for a variety of fiber sources and micronutrients. When it comes to colourful veg, it's mixed peppers, tomatoes and red onion!
My go to fruits for now are bananas (perfect pre or post training if ripe enough) and blueberries or mixed berries (great in oats). These also provide great sources of potassium, antioxidants and micronutrients too!
Main Carb Sources
My main carb sources of choice are Oats, Cereals (frosties or cheerios), White Potato, Basmati Rice, Bagels, Jam and Golden Syrup. Uses of these vary depending on time of day and if pre or post training when my carb intake is higher.
I buy most of my meats from Musclefood but I do pick up free range eggs, lean venison or steak burgers, sirloin steaks and minced turkey burgers from my local supermarket too. Occasionally fish, but went off this after last prep!
Whey protein wise I use "UMF Bio Whey Isolate" from Genetic Supplements.
As well as getting good fats from whole eggs, I also use almonds, olive oil (sometimes a little coconut oil), red meats, dark chocolate and peanut butter. Who doesn't love peanut butter nowadays!
