I'm trying to compile a bunch of ideas from people for neat ingredients and general foods to buy from the store for my shopping list. I have a few things right here that I would usually buy anyway.

-Whole Wheat Bread, Tortillas, Wheat Crackers

-Assorted canned beans


-Brown Rice

-Raisin Bran

-Soy Milk

-Fruits (I usually get apples, kiwi, mango, honeydew melon, and grapes or cherries)

-Vegetables (I usually get carrots, celery, radishes, cucumber, lettuce and assorted frozen vegetable mixes)

-Assorted Nuts

-Peanut Butter and Jelly


-Random Fruit juices (usually orange)

-Chips and pretzels

Any other things I could buy to improve my list? I'm always looking for new great things to try. Also i'm new to being a vegetarian, so i'm trying to brush up on my Veg shopping skills.

Try to mention things that were not previously mentioned. Thanks! =3

I have recently switched to sprouted wheat bread and LOVE it! That is a new staple on my list.

Some items I frequent (not on your list):


lentils (both red and green)

agave nectar (excellent sweetner)

frozen fruits (I buy fresh fruit as well but the frozen fruits make great smoothies)

cous cous

brown rice crisps (healthier version of chips)

Just to name a few

I would drop the chips, myself. drop the jelly, drop the juice. Then I would make my own jellies and juices, which would actually be smoothies that way I wouldn't lose fiber.

So, really, I would get

You want staple items and things for snacks, but what I usually do is decide on several recipes I'm going to cook during the week and buy the ingredients for those.

You're gonna make me puke my pants.
