Keto Shopping Tips

I have quite a few staple items that I buy every single time I go grocery shopping.  Which is every two weeks, with the exception of maybe 1 or 2 times randomly in between for other fresh ingredients that I may need for a recipe. Here is what a typical shopping trip looks like for me:

Produce:  Brussel Sprouts, Asparagus, Kale, Green Beans, Shredded Cabbage, Onions, Mushrooms, Avocados.  ::These enter my cart every trip::

Frozen Produce:  Cauliflower (for caulimash), Broccoli, Corn (if I feel like having the extra carbs).

Cold Section/Dairy:  Heavy Whipping Cream, Eggs (usually x2), Shredded cheese, Sour Cream, Cream Cheese (always x2), Kerry Gold Butter.

Meats:  Ground Beef, Bacon, Pork Chops, Chicken Thighs, Chicken Breast (for boiling and shredding for salad and crack slaw), Kielbasa, Sausage. 

Random Items:  Pickles, Olives, Low Carb Tortillas, Deli Meat (actually from the deli, not the packaged processed stuff), Coconut Oil, Ranch Dressing, Mayo, Taco Seasoning, Chicken Broth, Beef Broth.

I try to keep everything as basic as possible and then just add in other things when needed. I find it easier to create different recipes off of the basics, instead of having completely different recipes and buying ingredients accordingly. Basics save time and most importantly, MONEY!!

    Have you tried frozen California vegetable mix (carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli)? I use it with bacon and egg to keep things interesting.
