Who is ready to cook fit? Lets go grocery shopping

If you fail to prepare you have prepared yourself for failure.

Everyday you login to the daily hitt you are preparing your body for the best workout around and that effort needs to be matched in the kitchen. Don't go into this with half your guns loaded, we are going into this with all our bases loaded. With that being said I am here to help you support your training with clean, simple and easy to follow recipes that will have you shedding fat and building muscle faster than you thought possible.  But before we head into the kitchen we need to have the right tools for the battle and that starts at the grocery store. The first thing you want to have is a game plan, you need to make a shopping list for the week. I said every week because you will waste less food and teach yourself to only buy what you need. Here are a few tips and then I will give you my shopping list:
  1. think of what you are eating this week
  2. plan your meals around what is on sale
  3. make a list
  4. don't go hungry
  5. shop the edges of the store first, all the whole foods are found there
  6. Don't buy anything not on your list
Those are just a few pointers. I want to point out that I compiled a very large grocery list. I don't buy everything on this list in one week, these are meant to give you options and is not a complete list of everything, just a starting point.
