My Grocery Store Staples

Do you love grocery shopping? Or is it the one task that gets moved further and further down your to-do list each week?

My Grocery Store Staples

I posted about this a few days ago on Instagram but I love grocery shopping. I’m one of those weirdos who loves the ritual of going to the store and checking out all the new products. It’s definitely the first place I think of going when I’m stressed. (Are you wishing I’d do your shopping for you yet!?) 

My husband teases me and says that I’m a Type-A person in every other area of my life until I set foot in the store. Then I just wander aimlessly, and could for hours. It’s just such a happy place for me.

But anyway, I thought I’d share just a few of my weekly staples with you. This is definitely not an exhaustive list or a full pantry run down. These are just a few of the things I get each week!

Refrigerated/Frozen Items

  • Eggs
  • Almond Milk or Cashew Milk (Here are some of my favorites + Forager Unsweetened Plain Cashew Milk) to use for smoothies
  • Meat and/or Fish
  • Riced Cauliflower
  • Large bag of Power Greens from Earthbound Farm 
  • Kite Hill dairy-free cheese
  • Swapples 


  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Avocados
  • A big clamshell of lettuce
  • Zucchini
  • Fruit 
  • Lemons/Limes
  • Mint or other fresh herbs 
  • Garlic, Shallots, or Onions  


  • Coffee
  • Almond or Cashew Butter/Tahini
  • Cashews/Hazelnuts/Almonds/Brazil Nuts for homemade milk
  • Dates
  • Sparkling Water (often I buy Spindrift!)

As I said, this is not an exhaustive list but covers a lot of the basics that I pick up week in and week out. Now that it’s Farmers’ Market season, I also pick up a lot of produce there each week so my grocery store haul changes a bit. In another post, I’ll give the rundown on a few of my pantry staples!
