Fitness Grocery List: 30 Food Staples for the Active Woman
The active woman needs to meet her energy needs not only to carry out her day but to power her through her workouts! Here are 30 food staples fit for the active woman.
One of the most common questions I get is what should I eat before a workout? Heck I even ask myself that from time to time. While a pre-workout meal or snack can vary so much from person to person based on likes, dislikes, allergies, and culture, I thought it would be helpful to share a list of foods that fuel our busy days and especially our workouts. This is just a general list and of course your dietary needs and preferences are priority.
6. Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes
7. Baby Carrots
9. Dark Leafy Greens
11. Lean ground turkey
12. Chicken Breast or Thighs
For the best value buy a whole chicken and roast it. Trust me it's so simple!
17. Unsweetened Almond Milk
18. Salad Mix
19. Cottage Cheese
20. Frozen Mixed Veggie Blend
21. Frozen Strawberries
There are essential staples for the active woman in the middle aisles.
23. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
24. Canned Tuna
25. Canned Oysters
26. Minced Garlic
27. Herbal Tea
28. Seasoning Blend for extra flavor
Please keep in mind this is by no means an exhaustive list! There are so MANY more foods that fit the needs of an active woman. I selected 30 that I personally enjoy and cook and eat the most.
