4 year Vegetarian - Starting bodybuilding - My Grocery List

#1 Postby jflips89 » Tue Apr 30, 2013 12:17 am

Hey everyone,

I'm brand new to this forum. I have been a vegetarian for 4 years. I'm starting to get into body building and am looking for another set of eyes to help me with my grocery list. Please let me know if I'm missing anything crucial or if there is something you would suggest that I buy/not buy.

Food:

Beans (Kidney, Black)
Chickpeas
Nuts (Peanut, Almond, Cashew)
Lentils
Quinoa
Spinach
Kale
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Mushrooms
Cucumber
Eggs
Milk
Soy "meat substitutes" (burgers, fake ground beef, fake chicken, fake turkey)
Tofu
Avocados
Bananas
Cheese
Oatmeal
Brown Rice
Brown Pasta
Strawberries
Apples
Kiwi
Tomatoes



Supplements

Whey Protein
Casein Protein
Creatine Mono

Thanks for your time!

Wheat gluten (seitan, and good recipes), soy yoghurt or cottage cheese/dairy yoghurt if you have no problems with animal products, swap to wholemeal bread

though if you're a vegetarian, and not a vegan, you have some additional protein sources

just dont buy all that at once or you will spoil it

what are your goals for the shopping list anyway? just looking for good nutritional food to buy, or looking for high protein/certain macros? or are you looking to change to a vegan diet or something?

Welcome to the forum and that's awesome you took the time to create that list and share it with us. I too have a lot of the same questions. Hope to hear more from you.

I'm not buying all items at once. This is just a list of the food I consume in a month. I might go three weeks without eating/buying certain fruits or protein foods for example. My goal is to hit my fat and protein macro hard while trying to limit my carbs. I'm trying to hit all macros but with an emphasis on protein and fat while still maintaining the carbs but not exceeding it too much.

My micros are met with my multi-vitamins.

I'm okay with animal by-products, I forgot to add yogurt.

Other than nuts: Seeds, such as pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame.

Also when looking for soy/false meats make sure you check out tempeh.

I would cancel milk, chesse, eggs and animal based supplements and add Amaranth, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, raisins, peas, maize, flaxseeds, hemp seeds, dates, nuts (walnuts, hazelnutes, almonds ), lupine flour & a raw protein Powder like Sunnwarrior oder growing naturals.

Just my suggestions. The rest of your list looks pretty much the same as my grocery list :D

Don't even bother with casein. I don't even know why people bother buying that. I know that they say it's a slow release protein, but is the fact that it's slow release going to make you build more muscle? I say no. Just look for a quality whey isolate without artificial sweeteners like now food's whey protein isolate unflavored. I've tried a bunch of protein supplements and that's the only one that didn't destroy my colon. I also tried vitamin shoppe's non-soy vegetable protein and that was pretty good as well.
