The right grocery list is a make-or-break for healthy meals. Use our shopping list for healthy meal prep every single week
The first step to meal prep success: getting your hands on the right ingredients. Our ultimate healthy grocery list is like your treasure map, guiding you to the good stuff so that you fill your cart with the building blocks for endless healthy meals. Plus, having a plan will fast-track your shopping trip.
Before you head to the store, take inventory of your cabinets, using our handy checklist, and then make your own shopping list to fill in the holes. By investing a little shopping time upfront, you'll help eliminate the two biggest hurdles to healthy cooking—not having enough time and not having the right ingredients, says Samantha Lynch, R.D., who created the list. It hits every food group, from carbs (like the best carbs for weight loss) to healthy fats (the high fat foods every diet should include) to protein (including plant-based proteins), as well as every aisle of the store, including canned goods and frozen foods (like these 10 healthy frozen foods).
