    I meal plan and try and cook something different each week, we don't have a meal repertoire or anything. Stuff I buy week in, week out is
    Milk (6-8L of full fat and 2L of reduced fat)
    Jalna Greek yoghurt
    Bread (2 loaves of whole meal and one sourdough, always from Bakers Delight)
    Mineral water
    Bananas
    Apples
    Grapes
    Blueberries/strawberries if they are on special
    Onions
    Butter
    Carrots
    Garlic
    Celery
    Fresh herbs
    Turkey or ham
    Bacon
    Vita Brits when we're low
    Fruit bread for DH
    Eggs (not unusual to go through 1-2 dozen a week)
    Jarred olives/cornichons/pickles/ when we're low
    Canned chickpeas/beans/tomatoes/corn when we're low
    Sakata
    Coffee pods
    Cheddar cheese

    Whatever else I buy is totally dependent on what DH wants for lunch during the week and whatever dinners we have planned which are predominantly vegetarian or seafood based. I can't be bothered checking the list but off the top of my head I've bought ingredients for seafood stir fry, Indian marinated chicken salad, Vietnamese omelette, pea, fennel and spinach lasagne, cauliflower and chickpea dosas and miso salmon with Asian vegetables.

    We eat paleo (though the kids eat bread) and I find it easiest to prepare very simple meals. Generally a protein (meat, fish or chicken) and 3 veg. Or slow cooker curry/stew etc.

    Supermarket staples are Honey, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, coconut cream/milk, spices as I need them, tinned tomatoes, mustard, decaf & regular ground coffee, herbal teas, I also buy fish from the supermarket. Whatever white fish is wildcaught Australian. Or sometimes farmed salmon.
    We buy our bulk of veg from the health food store once per week, then we visit our local markets on weekends for top up veg/fruit.
    Visit the butcher for our week's worth of meat - we eat quite a bit of it. Mainly beef and lamb because it is all "clean" and grass fed but also affordable (secondary cuts mainly). Organic meat is hard to find here. Pastured chicken once per week. I buy bones too to make stock.
