Eating a variety of unprocessed, mostly plant-based foods is essential for a healthy diet. However, despite the abundance of choices at grocery stores, many people stick to a narrow selection of items.
Utilizing a healthy grocery shopping list can help you ensuring adequate variety into your diet. At the same time, it can help you find more foods that you enjoy.

While grocery list apps are very popular, this list serves as a guide for hand-written lists. If you prefer a paper-based approach, with this list you can avoid shopping with your smartphone in your hand.
Simply print the list, and keep it accessible in a convenient location. For example in your kitchen. When it’s time for your grocery shopping, peruse the list and jot down your selected items on a small notebook page.
How To Use The Healthy Grocery List
I have created this list according to the guidelines of the Healthy Eating plate of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
The list is quite comprehensive, but it can not include all the possible types of healthy foods that you may want to buy. That’s why there is plenty of space in the list for you to add your favorite foods and tailor it on your needs.
