hi, i tend to buy a few main staples and then i also look at recipes i wish to make and write down a list of ingredients.
i also have recently been looking at anything in the fruit and veg section i have never eaten before and searched for recipes, then i go and try it. this has been good as it gives me variety. recently i tried mooli (daikon) and celeriac, and chicory.

AliCat, this is a sample grocery list for me:
Raw sunflower seeds
Acorn Squash (bought just recently, going to try out a soup recipe tonight)
Raw Honey or Agave
Raw Wheat germ
Raw Carob (ordered online) In food processor blend raw almonds, raw coconut oil and carob, tastes just like almond joy!
Also I would normally buy more fruit, but I have alot of frozen blueberries and blackberries that I picked from the orchards. I normally eat things like waldorf salad, spinach salad, I make gazpachos and soups out of the tomatoes and cucumbers, squash, etc. Pineapple, grapes and strawberries mixed together is wonderful! With the flax seeds and avacados I make flax chips and that helps with my bread cravings, they are really simple to make...You can also make smoothies out of the fruits..hope this helps! :)

bags of salad mix (endive, raddichio-spelling?, romaine)
blueberries & a whole LOT of em'
that's about all I eat these days... and I'm back to have little appetite. I'm wondering if I'm about to have another drop in weight.
I seem to get spurts where my body gets ravenous for greens & then I taper off to having a small appetite.
I have had some serious stress lately though. Plus hormones....
anyways just thinking & typing. That's my list though.
variety of nuts

I just went grocery shopping today (I go weekly to a discount grocery store) and this is what I got:
(everthing is organic)
I go to the farmers market weekly and I get collards and kale. I love collard wraps!
I go to the regular grocery store once a month and I get:
Variety of nuts and seeds (sunflower, flax, macademia, cashews etc)
Any other veggies or fruits that I can't find at the discount place.
I go to the health food store once a month for:
My weekly grocery shopping varies so much with whatever they have. Last week I got a whole case of organic raspberries for $3. Yum!

Mine's a bit boring, but here are my staples:

Since my husband and daughter are not on the same diet I am, a lot of what I buy wouldn't apply here. For me though, I buy my sprouting supplies online. The one order I placed has lasted me a long time and I don't make sprouts every week. I bought chickpea (several varieties), pea (several varieties), mixed beans, sunflower and a spicy radish mix. I get an organic produce box each week. What I buy at the store depends on what is in the box. But each week I eat tomatoes, bell peppers, celery, carrots, lettuce and onions. Sometimes eat cucumber, peas, mushrooms, hot peppers, radishes and other vegetables. I do grow some of these in my garden. I don't eat a lot of fruit. Mainly apples, pears and berries.
At the health food store I get coconut oil, olive oil, assorted nuts and seeds, dried fruit, flax crackers, pumpkin seed bars, seasonsings like salt, agave nectar, cocoa, and probably some other things I'm forgetting about.
I placed an order online at a special diet place and ordered some raw olives. Haven't gotten those yet, so I don't know if they are good or not.

Hum, well, this summer, I have purchased one case of peaches, some pineapple and some mangos.
oregano (3 varieties)
tomatoes (about 10 types)
peppers (4 types)
squash (5 types)
the only other thing I eat (during the winter) is
vinegar (for deoderant & cleaning)
dates (when they have them)
From the Health food store:
then I buy in bulk:
fronteir spices (anything I don't grow)
but mostly, I just walk outside and forage for my breakfast (warmed) tea, my fruit lunch and my dinner, although I still occasionally will eat some rawviolies with marinara sauce, or a burger patty and onionn bread, but most of the ingredients I grow, so I really don't do the store too much.
this past month I spent $16 at the store, as I had several pot luck parties to go to, or I wouldn't have had to go to the store at all.
I bought pineapple and mangos, to make into a few pies, with nut/date crusts, and fresh berries on top, but that is it, I wanted something kind of fancy for the parties.
I do buy TP at the store, and dog and cat food, bird food from a supplier back east, but that's it, I don't buy anything else at the store, no cleaners, no shampoos, no paper towels, no scrubbing bubbles, no tooth paste, no cosmetics, no deoderant, no room freshener, no nothing.
I use whatever fruit I have on hand for shampoo, or just water, and if I have some coconut water, I use that as hair condition, and that's only once a week, although I do rinse off my body and hair every day with water only.

I don't usually have a list, just things that I'm searching for ... and I will pick up whatever I run out of... I try to keep apples and oranges and cantaloupe around at all times though.
I can't find the much-coveted Durian!!!!
