Hi everyone, quick 1st question: How much are pregnancy test in a clinic without insurance...not the Vitamin Shoppe tests?.

My 2nd question is: This may be a silly question, but...

\.

I am scheduled to receive my NS next Thursday I believe, according to UPS. I was going grocery shopping today to pick up a few little things to hold me over until then. I'd like to stock up on some things I'll need to add to the NS meals. Printed out the "Grocery Food Additions" list. Have a question - Am I safe just randomly picking things from the list, based on what appeals to me now? I mean, do certain things go better than others? Obviously I can tweak what I buy next time, but was curious how others figured this out..

Any Vegetarian plan members (or others!) have suggestions?..

Wow, that was a very good post Sanem..

NS used to have peanut butter that you could have on a slice of bread but since they don't have it anymore and none of the entrees you can eat are the sandwich type, skip the bread. They had vegetarian sloppy joes but I think they were discontinued too.

Keep Dairy to 100 calories or less with 7 g. protein. You can have an occasional yogurt that's 120 calories...

Welcome fellow veggie!.

I highly recommend the Walden Farms 0 calorie dressings to go with the veggies, they are creamy and tasty.

I also use nuts for my fat serving, either 6 almonds or 4 walnut halves are my faves (unsalted)...

If you like seitan, it's great for a protein serving. White Wave seitan has a little more fat and calories per serving than other kinds, but I love any kind sauteed up with spices for my afternoon snack..

I also love Boca sausage links for my morning protein. Pair those up with the NS pancakes and a 1/2 cup of juice and you'll feel like you're cheating!..

Thanks so much for the tips! Can't wait to get into the program, establish a routine, etc. My NS food can't get here fast enough..

Welcome! I started on my weight loss journey last December. It's may seem counterintuitive, but it's a good time to start. With all the fuss and fother going on this time of year, healthy eating helps keep us feeling good..

The add-ins fall in 4 main categories: fruit, salad, veggies, protein/dairy..

Fruit.

You need to buy 3 fruit servings per day that you want to cover with this shopping trip, assuming you want fruit with dinner. So, if you were shopping for the next 7 days just for you, you want to cover 21 fruit servings. For example, you might buy.

7 small apples (1 serving each for afternoon snack).

4 bananas (8 days, at 1/2 banana every morning).

2 pears.

3 oranges.

1 mango (2 servings).

That's will provide you 22 servings.

Salad.

You need to buy enough salad vegetables for at least 7 meals (lunch every day) and, if you want to have salad again for dinner instead of one of the fruits you planned for dinner, then add it on. That's a lot of lettuce, spinach, kale, etc..

Although we are allowed green soybeans (1/3 cup edamame) as a protein, what threw me at first is that we don't get to add in any beans - no garbanzo or kidney beans or corn with our salads (unless you are on the Men's plan or have more than 100 lbs. to lose, in which case you can add a few complex carbs). So maybe pick up a bag of frozen edamame. Cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, celery and snow or sugar snap peas. I've also been adding in thinly sliced fennel bulb.

Don't bother buying bread or rolls..

Vegetables.

Buy some fresh veggies - also a couple of bags of your favorite frozen veggies for those evening you just don't want to come home and wield a knife. No peas or corn. Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, green beans..

Protein.

Edamame (green soybeans).

Boca or Gardenburgers or faux lunch meat.

Non fat (abbreviated NF in these boards) egg substitute.

NF cottage cheese and/or ricotta.

Lite string cheese - 1 per day to go with apple for afternoon snack.

Eggs to hardboil and put on salad at lunch for protein serving.

Hope this helps you get started..
