I see some similarities to mine but no jalapeños or habeneros, too boring for my tastes. Also, where's the beef? I gotta have a bit of beef.

A lot of things similar to my own list.

 

Meats - Beef (mostly steaks), pork (shoulder roasts), chicken (I get the whole roasted ones from the store), fish (a lot of salmon, this is Seattle), sausages (pork, hot Italian, Aidell's Chicken and Apple), bacon, eggs etc.

 

Veggies

Fresh: spinach, broccoli, broccolini, asparagus, cucumbers, mushrooms, various peppers, onions, green beans, radishes, green onions, and whatever takes my fancy at the moment.  Some cabbage and lettuces.  I'm more likely to buy the pre bagged salad mixes since my husband won't touch them and 1 person can also eat so much before they go bad.  Honestly I dislike salads in general but once summer hits, I'm more likely to have them since I try to avoid hot things.  Favorite at the moment is Dole Summer chopped salad mix.

Frozen: Green beans, chopped broccoli.

 

Fruits - Avocado, cherry tomatoes, occasional blueberries or blackberries

 

Dairy - cheese of just about any kind.  I adore cheese.  HWC, butter, sour cream

 

Condiments - Mayo, various mustards (I adore mustard), vinegar, olive oil (for dressings)

 

Reminds me of the salad dressing I made for dinner last night.  Sour cream, avocado, dijon mustard, a little apple cider vinegar, dab of lemon juice, and olive oil til I got the consistency I wanted.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Had to add a lot of olive oil.  The stuff got thicker as I mixed.  :)

I just like mustard.  I like its heat and spiciness.  :)

 

Its also a great emulsifier for dressings.  Its helps keep the oils/fats from separating from the rest of the ingredients.  A little is all you need.

Pommery Meaux Mustard (in a stone jar) - It's pricey but this is the only mustard worth putting on and in anything I eat. ;)

I shop for myself and my husband (not a diabetic), so I buy more than just low-carb goodies.

 

Meats:  Chicken breast (not a fan of dark meat), ground chuck 80/20 blend for burgers or meat loaf, thin sliced pork tenderloin.

             Meats for bag lunches:  1 lb sliced turkey breast, 1 lb roast beef

 

Cheese:  Usually a couple Kraft blocks of sharp cheddar which I grate or slice as needed.

Breakfast:  Carton of 18 eggs, lb of bacon or sausage (which I bake or fry all at once, then we eat throughout the week), Frozen biscuits (for hubs, he can fix them 2 at a time in toaster oven), cereal (again for hubs, as I can't tolerate cereal blood-sugar wise) and Eggo waffles and syrup (for hubs). 

 

Bread: Hubs likes wheatberry or potato, I buy Trader Joe's sprouted bread (4 carbs/slice after subtracting fiber)

 

Veggies:  I keep a good supply of frozen veggies in the freezer, including frozen onions and peppers. I also buy tomatoes and lettuce for sandwiches and baby spinach, cucumbers and spring mix for salads. Occ. i'll buy a couple sweet potatoes and couple ears of corn when in season.

 

Fruit:  Hubs likes bananas, so we buy them weekly.  I'm not a big fruit eater, probably only eating a serving or two a month.

 

Ice cream:  I always keep some type ice cream on hand, we prefer the Carb Smart bars for portion control.

 

Misc:  I keep almonds in various varieties for snacking and salads.  I also buy s/f jello and s/f jello pudding.  I buy Hood Calorie Countdown low-carb chocolate milk for myself, 2% for milk for hubs.  Pork rinds for snacking, low-carb tortillas to bake or fry to have with salsa, pretzels or tortilla chips (for hubs).

 

Condiments:  Mustard (all kinds), Mayo, Sour cream, cream cheese, ketchup, worchestershire sauce, soy sauce, hot sauce, pickles, pickled okra, pickled peppers/jalapenos.

Drinks:  I basically drink water and green tea, but buy canned drinks (Sprite Zero and Diet Dr. Pepper for hubs), coffee, tea.
