Feel free to refer to this basic shopping list to get ideas of what your new clean kitchen environment will consist of:

Whole grains—Brown rice, quinoa, barley, millet, etc. You can buy these in the bulk section or in bags.Dried beans and lentils—Black beans, cannellini beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, red lentils, brown lentils, French lentils, etc. You can buy these in the bulk section or in bags.

Canned beans (no added salt)—Black, cannellini, garbanzo, kidney, pinto, etc. More expensive than dried beans, these are handy to have on hand for when you need a quick meal.

Oatmeal—steel cut or rolled

Whole grain pasta—100% whole wheat, along with brown rice, quinoa, whole spelt, etc.
Canned tomatoes (no added salt)

Oil- and sugar-free marinara sauceVegetable broth (low-sodium with no added oil)

Frozen fruits—including berries, mangoes, grapes, bananas, and other favorites. Use these in smoothies, stir them into oatmeal, or eat them right out of the freezer as a snack.

Frozen vegetables—including corn, mixed green veggies, and any other favorites. Call on these when you have very little time; they are just as health-promoting as fresh veggies.

Frozen cooked whole grains—Look for brown rice or whole grain medleys. Keep on hand in a pinch—you can defrost them in the microwave, steam, or toss straight into soup.

Nuts (no added oil, salt, or sugar)Flax- and/or chia seeds

Cold cereals (no added sugar or refined grains)—such as puffed corn, rice, millet, and kamut

Condiments—Look for sugar-free mustard, hot sauce, sriracha, Tabasco, and so on.
Soy sauce (low sodium) or Bragg Liquid Aminos Vinegars—Balsamic, apple cider, red wine, etc.

Fresh fruits—including berries, bananas, apples, lemon or lime for dressings, and any other favorites. These are perishable, so buy only what you need for a week.

Fresh vegetables—including leafy greens (like spinach, kale, romaine), cruciferous veggies (like broccoli or cauliflower), starchy vegetables (like potatoes or sweet potatoes), other vegetables (like green beans, zucchini, peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic), and any other favorites. These are perishable, so buy only what you need for a week.

Fresh salsa (oil-free)

Hummus (oil-free)



Miso—Start with lighter varieties if you’re not accustomed to miso.

Dried fruits—including dates, raisins, mango, and any other favorites

Unsweetened applesauceNut or soy milk (unsweetened)

Frozen veggie burgersCorn or whole wheat tortillas

Whole grain wraps

Whole grain pizza crust100% whole grain bread—I like Dave’s Killer Bread Good Seed variety and Ezekiel.Brown rice or corn cakes—or other whole grain, oil-free crackers
