Top Ten Things to put on Your Shopping List

1. Fresh fruits and vegetables, organic if possible. Fresh produce has more nutrients per calorie than any other food. They should be juiced, eaten raw, or lightly steamed.

2. Fermented dairy products like yogurt. Buy plain, sugar free varieties that are free of artificial sweeteners. Add your own fruit for flavor.

3. Organic virgin flaxseed, canola, or olive oil.

4. Spring or distilled water if you do not have a high quality water filter in your house. Don't buy bottled filtered tap water. Read labels.

5. Dried beans, lentils, and black-eyed peas. Precooked varieties may also be used for convenience.

6. Raw nuts, especially almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, and brazil nuts still in their shell. Avoid raw peanuts. Organic nuts are best.

7. Whole-grain pastas, breads, and snacks. If it doesn't say "whole" on the ingredient listing, as in "whole wheat flour" or "whole durham flour," it isn't.

8. Unfermented green tea, Cafix, Celestial Seasonings' "Iced Delight," or any other natural herbal drink mix that does not contain sugar or artificial sweeteners.

9. Salsa, mild or spicy, as a replacement for sugar-laden ketchup.

10. Herbs and spices, including garlic, ginger, thyme, rosemary, basil, cayenne pepper, and turmeric.
