Low Carb Grocery List! 🍅🍈🍒😄👍
Health & Fitness
Many people would be willing to try sugar free/low carb if they had guidance as to how and where to start. It's not difficult, but can certainly be overwhelming to start. This is a shopping list that I keep myself. I may not buy everything on the list every time, but its an excellent reference. Some of these items may not be essentials for the sugar free/low carb newbie, but keep it on hand for when you are more comfortable with low carbing.
ALWAYS READ LABELS! Look first at the Carbohydrate content. Keep it as low as possible! Usually, if it is low in carbs it is low in sugar, but not always the other way around so ALWAYS CHECK THE NUTRITION LABELS!
-Meat and Fish (all kinds, but opt for leaner meats and try turkey instead of hamburger and sausage as a much healthier alternative)
-Shellfish (all except imitation crab meat)
-Deli Meats and hot dogs (watch labels - nitrate free is preferable)
Veggies: scroll for more
Green, Red, Yellow and Orange Bell peppers
Tomatoes (go easy on these as a general rule)
Peppers (jalapeño, etc.)
*The following fruits are not off limits, but they are a bit higher in sugar so go easy on them*:
Heavy Whipping Cream
Half and Half
All hard and soft cheeses
Other Items used for snacks or
low carb cooking:
I've included some of them here, but altogether do try to avoid "Sugar Free" products as much as you can because they contain artificial sweeteners that just aren't good for anyone's health. Plus, for some people, artificial sugars can cause a stall in weight loss.
Sometimes I do eat these though as a special treat or when i'm really craving something sweeter, but I really try to do my best to stay away from them. Also, always opt for Stevia Products over other artificial sweeteners such as Splenda. Stevia is plant derived and is the most natural option. In fact, you can grow a Stevia plant on your own and use it to sweeten your food at home!
-Sugar Free Jell-O
-Sugar Free Pudding Mix
-Diet Hot Cocoa (read labels)
-Crystal Light (mix is better than pre-made)
-Sugar Free Kool-Aide
-Low-Carb tortillas (read labels)
-Nuts (watch portion sizes! Almonds are best. Cashews are the worst)
-Nut flours and Guar or Xanthan Gum-(Not an essential this minute but when you get more comfortable with everything and want to start baking low carb you'll need this to replace the gluten in flour which you wont be using.
-Protein Powders (no-carb protein powders)
-Davinci Sugar Free Syrups for deserts and coffee (health food stores or bought online)
-Beef Jerky and Slim Jims
-Peanut Butter(in moderation) but try other nut butters such as almond butter too-sooo good!
-Miso soup (you know that soup with tofu and seaweed that they serve as an appetizer at Japanese restaraunts? Well, its verrry low carb and really tasty! They have individual packets to make instant Miso Soup at Walmart in the Chinese Food section)
-Tofu (extra firm is usually easier to work with)
-Pickles (Dill only)
-Pepperchinis -Sugar Free Syrup to use on Mock Pancakes is fine (check carb content)
