We take nutrition and meal prep seriously. You really are what you eat, so we prioritize consuming as much high quality, whole foods as possible. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule, but 99% of the time, our nutrition and meal prep is clean, lean, and balanced. The goal is to eat foods that will fuel our workouts and recovery while also setting us up for a long and healthy life that avoids and mitigates disease.
Below is a list of everything we order from Whole Foods every week and a point or two about why. Stay tuned as we’re working on a series of new meals we make with everything. Please give us a follow on Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and Facebook!

Our Whole Foods Grocery List
View this post on Instagram
Antioxidant-rich vegetable that tastes delicious with oil, salt, pepper, and tumeric when roasted in the oven.
Excellent source of omega-3 fats that we’ll eat with our eggs in the morning or on taco nights.
Sir Kensington’s Avocado Oil Mayonnaise
Better alternative to regular mayonnaise because it’s lower in total calories and fat.
Standard quality carbohydrates that keeps our blood glucose levels more stable than a regular potato.
Another standard quality carbohydrate.
365 Salsa Verde
Low calorie way to make all kinds of things delicious.
365 Organic Eggs
Standard quality protein source.
FAGE 0% Greek Yogurt
Really like Greek yogurt for the probiotics which help keep the gut health and digestion functioning well. We go with 0% to keep the fat down.
When we make eggs, we do a few whole and the rest whites, so instead of wasting yolks, we get the egg white containers.
365 Extra Lean Organic Ground Chicken
Standard quality protein source.
Apple Naturals Fajita Grilled Chicken Strips
Not the absolute-best option, but clean enough for a meal when we don’t have to cook or are rushing around.
Bilinski’s Chicken Sausage
Another meal that’s not perfect, but these are pretty clean and go well with our red lentil pasta dishes.
Wild Planet Canned Wild Salmon
Excellent source of omega-3. We always go wild caught, never farmed.
Wildwood High Protein Tofu
This is the go-to when we want to shake up the protein source a bit.
Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Pasta
Way better than traditional pasta as it has more fiber and creates a far smaller blood glucose response.
365 White Quinoa
Solid quality carbohydrate source for some variety, and like that it has some protein too.
Dense, nutrient rich greens. Can’t get enough of this.
Another delicious veggie we love to bake in the oven with oil, salt, pepper, and tumeric.
Mikey’s Gluten and Grain-Free Wraps
Way better than any other tortilla out there.
Love Beets Organic Marinated Baby Beets
Beets are super dense in nutrients. We really like that it helps with blood pressure, circulation, and even athletic performance.
Another generally health food we try to work into our omelets or tacos.
We don’t use this for any particular health benefits, more for some flavor in our tacos and pastas.
Real Pickles Garlic Kraut
This is a relatively new addition, but we love that it’s high in probiotics to help with gut health and digestion, similarly to the yogurt.
Gotham Greens Lemon Basil Dressing
Clean dressing that we put in our salmon wraps and salads.
Natural Peanut Butter
Peanut butter is just delicious. Always natural. Peanuts and salt only.
Stevia In The Raw
Way better alternative to sucrolose / Splenda.
Tastes great in oatmeal and coffee, but can also help control blood glucose levels.
Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea
Part of the wind down ritual.
Traditional Medicinals Organic Hibiscus Tea
Afternoon alternative to anything caffeinated.
Coffee… enough said.
Califia Unsweetened Almond Milk Creamer
When coffee needs a little something but we don’t want that something to be garbage.
Angie’s Boomchickapop Popcorn
This is more of a treat / snack.
Lundberg Brown Rice Thins Stackers
Another small little snack. Not the greatest, but not going to kill us either.
Zevia Energy Drink (120mg)
Better alternative to traditional pre-workout supplements or energy drinks. We use these sparingly when we’re not feeling coffee.
