Gee, I am on the way to the grocery store and this is a great thread! I am adding cocanut milk and red Thai paste to my list. Also glad to hear that someone else loves sliced fennel in their salad.

I also grill vegies by slicing them thin and basting them with olive oil, garlic and fresh basil. In the winter I just grill them in the oven. I slice zucchini, fennel, mushrooms, peppers, eggplant and other vegies for this.

Will also make the creamed spinach - yum.

My shopping looks pretty much the same as everyone elses. Thanks for the great read!

Genoa salami, isn't a brand (it's a place in Italy) . It's a hard, garlic-flavored salami of pork and veal or, esp. in the U.S., pork and beef. I just like it better than plain hard salami. Just a pet peeve. Sliced thin with cream's da' bomb.

Cool creative cooking on LC

I love "creative cooking," and finally had my first experience on LC, thanks to someone here who mentioned sauteeing cabbage in butter. I'd just bought a cabbage the night before. Here's what I did:

Cut up and fried 2 slices of bacon. Added 1 T. butter and 2 cups thinly sliced cabbage. When the cabbage was almost cooked I added a dash of heavy cream and a dollop of sour cream and stirred, bubbling, until it thickened. Some coarse ground black pepper and yum!

Thanks so much for listing the ingredients for your creamed spinach. I love it and have not been able to figure it out.

Default a funny thing happened...

last week at the supermarket the lady who usually serves me told me that she cant work out how i have lost so much weight as she sees me buying the most fattening food in the store. Then she said that she was waiting for me to drop dead of a heart attact!

She is going to buy the Dr Atkins book after i told her that i was healthier than i have been for years! ( that and the breakfast cheesecake that i told her about was a deciding factor, oh and the coffee with REAL cream)

Default Fridge & Cupboard staples

Had to add my 2 cents worth re what I always like to have on hand:

Eggs (buy 30 at a time in a huge carton). I get panicky if I am down to 1 or 2 left. These don't last long at my house as everytime I boil a few the kids eat them before I do!
Cream cheese
Johnsonville original breakfast sausages
(has ingredients & carbs listed on package)
whipping cream
frozen broccoli, cauliflower & gr beans
(in case I don't have fresh)
Red, orange, yellow or green peppers
gr onions
Macadamia nuts
pork rinds
Frozen chicken thighs
(in case I haven't thought ahead for supper)
Romaine lettuce
Real bacon bits
Parmesan cheese
Newman's Own Ceasar dressing

Default This struck me as funny.........

By looking in my frig and from reading through the post.... one would NEVER guess that this is for weight LOSS!!
It's just a normal frig--- of people that don't have any dietary restrictions!
Of coarse... if you talk cabinets..... you'll find no pot. chips, no cereal, no cookies, no crackers--------- its just a refrigerator world now!!

After reading this whole thread, what strikes me the most is how overall healthy the lists sound. No processed, white flour gunk. Just whole, unprocessed real food. How can people think this is a terrible way to go? Its funny that someone mentioned shopping only the perimeter of the store. I never thought about it but it is so true. I still run through the cereal aisle for my kids but that is really about it.

They only things I can add are:

soy flour, for the occasional light breading or cheese cake crust
frozen blackberries (just started this thanks to Nat - use
sparingly with a little cream cheese, cream, and Spenda)
Splenda (just started this too)
pistachios (I'm avoiding these for a couple of weeks though)
frozen chopped broccoli (with lots of butter)
pork roast with saurkraut (a must with every weekly trip)
bagged salads with Kraft's shredded garlic/parmesan
pork rinds
string cheese
hot italian sausage (with no added sugar)
steaks and chicken breasts
and every now and then I allow myself some frozen meatballs for
a quick heat and eat treat (be careful of brands though,
some are very bready and high in carbs)
Diet Coke - still a must for me
Miller Lite - for my newly LCing hubby (and sometimes

I'd love to try some almond cookies. Can you buy almond flour at the grocery store or do you have to go to a specialty store/make it on your own?

Loved seeing everyone's list. Take care!

You know what I realized after LC Shopping for the first time? MY REFRIGERATOR IS TOO SMALL!!!!

Seriously, though, it is. I'm going to have to save up that grocery money and buy a new fridge. The cabinets are very roomy now, though.

Default quickie lc trick for spinach and greens....

I hate to cook so I do everything fast. While I have some chicken or turkey in the oven or steaks on the pan, I steam my frozen spinach with very little water in a sauce pan. When the meat is done, I pour the water off the spinach and then put it into the drippings until most are soaked up, and then slather it onto my plate. Yummmm....

Works very well for any kind of greens. I alos love frozen turnip, collard, and other greens this way. If I'm not cooking any meat, I'll just cut up a scallion, fry a few pieces of bacon, and dump the greens into that.
