Unprocessed Living

A Healthy Living Recipe Box

Grocery List January 18, 2015

I’m taking on the Whole Life Challenge again with an awesome group of friends from my box, hoping to take off the 15-20 pounds that crept on in 2014, and I created a sample grocery shopping check list to help those new to the whole “clean eating” and paleo(ish) lifestyle. Figured I’d post it here too, in case it’s helpful to others. I obviously don’t buy everything on this list every week, but most of the ingredients for my favorite recipes are included on this list.

A one-page printable check list is also available for download as a pdf file or Word document.
