    This may be some kind of repost, so I appologize if it has been done many times before. I thought it may be a good idea if everyone was to post up the items most commonly seen on their grocery list. This could help a lot of people (including myself) who get a little tired of the everyday clean foods they've gotten into the groove of eating.

    Some of my most common are...

    -Boneless/skinless chicken breasts
    -Apples
    -Oranges
    -Grapefruits
    -Natural or Sugar Free Peanut Butter
    -Atkins brand sugar-free yogurt (THIS STUFF IS GOOD)
    -Bagged Salad
    -Natural Oatmeal
    -Extra Lean ground beef
    -Lean Sirloin Steaks
    -Whole wheat tortillas
    -Whole Almonds
    -Low fat mozerella string cheese
    -Splenda for my oatmeal
    -Eggs or Eggbeaters
    -Broccoli
    -Green Beans
    -Sweet Potatoes
    -Cherry tomatoes
    -Salmon Filets
    -Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

    Anyone have any other ideas??

    Its a pork cut, like a huge rasher minus the fat, roughly 100 kcals per steak. Its ever so processed but delicious and very versatile, you just grill for 7 mins and its done. I couldn't do it without them because chicken can be very expensive, i get them in packs of three. Lately i've been grilling it then chopping it up into fine pieces and adding into to scrambled egg with some scallions, now thats a delicious and high protein healthy omlette-alternative!

    the taste is quite hard to discribe, its one of them things that you have to try and you will either like it or not.

    texture is ok, it just feels exaclty like a cheap beef burger (retextured). I know it sounds aruful but i like it.
