My Favourite Products at the Grocery Store

produits epicerie

Did you ever wonder about what you would find in a nutritionist’s grocery cart? Here are my 10 favourite products that always find their way into mine:

1. St-Méthode 100 % whole-wheat bread
pain-100-ble-entier-500-g
If you tend to eat too many grain products, I recommend you try it. With this bread, one serving of starch is equivalent to two slices rather than one. That’s a good way to indulge yourself a little more while saving on calories!

2. Allégro cheeses

allegro
Allégro cheeses are great because they are low in fat, a source of probiotics and calcium, lactose-free (for those with an intolerance), and on top of all this, they are delicious! Try using the 4 % M.F. jalapeno cheese in the black beans and yams burrito recipe!

3. Seasoned canned tuna (in water)

thon

These small canned goods are perfect for rush mornings: tuna, a few crackers, raw vegetables, a fruit, a yogurt, and hop! Lunch is ready! There are several flavours: tomato basil, hot peppers, lemon. These cans can be stored for extended periods of time, and they are quite convenient!

4. 0 % fat plain Greek yogurt

LiberteNatureGrec

Greek yogurt is perfect to add proteins to your breakfast or snacks, in a smoothie, or with fresh fruit. I also use it in my marinades, or as a substitute for mayonnaise in my recipes. Try it in the tuna, apple, and cheddar salad sandwich recipe from the Zero Diet book, or in a Greek-Style Pita.

5. Nature’s Path blueberry, cinnamon, and flaxseed cereals
CER-ES-OP-BlueberryCinnamon-CD-A1L1
I love these cereals, crunchy, not too sweet, and really delicious! Each portion contains 9 g of proteins, 9 g of fiber, and they are low-fat.

6. Fountain of Health Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Forget mayonnaise for your sandwiches, and substitute it with roasted red pepper hummus! Absolutely delicious, I use it as dip with raw vegetables or crackers, on oven-baked potatoes, and chicken skewers!

7. Kale
2012-9-16-Kale
Everybody’s talking about kale, and for a good reason: it’s a superfood bursting with antioxidants! I use it in my morning smoothies, as well as my salads and soups! Try this green smoothie recipe for breakfast, and substitute the spinach with kale.

8. Veggie Patch Ready-to-eat Falafel
0061012906634
You are in a hurry? You don’t have time to cook? These falafels are great, as they are oven-baked, healthy, and convenient! Reheat them in the oven, and put them in a whole-wheat pita garnished with tzatziki and spinach.

9. Triscuit low-sodium Roasted Garlic and Herb
pkg-triscuit-lowsodium-roastedgarlic-FR
They pair well with cheeses, soups, and salads, and are so flavourful that it doesn’t even feel like they are low-sodium! Because they are made from whole grains, they are just as good for your health as they are to alleviate your hunger!

10. Lärabars
larabar-bars
These bars are absolutely delicious and make a perfect snack. They also contain no preservatives, and no more than 9 ingredients, all of which are whole ingredients, such as dates, nuts, and spices.

Tell me, what can we find in your grocery cart?
