LCHF shopping list


I’ve put together a list of my most frequently bought items when I go grocery shopping. I don’t necessaily buy them all every time but they are all part of my everyday cooking.

I buy organic whenever possible.

BASICS

  • Eggs
  • Butter – real butter
  • Heavy cream
  • Sour cream
  • Greek yoghurt 10%
  • Various cheeses (brie, cheddar, parmesan, just to name a few)
  • Cottage cheese
  • Deli cuts (ham, sausauge)
  • Bacon (no explanation needed!)
  • Vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, lettuce, bell peppers, cucumber, fennel, haricots verts, asparagus, onions etc.)
  • Avocados
  • Fresh herbs (basil, parsley, coriander, thyme, rosemary etc.)
  • Lemon (always organic so I can use the zest)
  • Meat (beef, chicken, pork, lamb etc.)
  • Fish (often salmon, cod, mullet etc)
  • Canned tuna and macquerel
  • Nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts etc.)
  • Seeds (sunflower, sesame, linseed, chia seeds)
  • Berries – frozen if they’re not in season
  • Canned or bottled tomatoes
  • Coconut milk
  • Dessicated coconut
  • Extra Virgin olive oil
  • Mayonnaise (I look for one with rapeseed oil rather than sunflower oil or “vegetable oil”)
  • Dark chocolate 85%

DE LUXE PRODUCTS

I also shop in my local health store or online for some of the special types of flours or sugar replacement products I use. It’s important for me to stress that these products are NOT necessary for following a LCHF lifestyle. LCHF is first and foremost vegetables, meat and healthy fats. They are, however, convenient if you want to try the grainfree bread recipes or you want to make cakes or desserts.

  • Virgin coconut oil
  • Coconut oil (odour free)
  • Psyllium husks
  • Almond flour
  • Almond flour
  • Coconut flour (fibres)
  • Coconut palm sugar
  • Pofiber (potato fibres)
  • Erythritol (sugar alcohol that’s not absorbed in the body)
  • Yacon sirup
  • Raw cacao powder
  • Liquorice powder
  • Nut butters (almond butter, cashew butter, hazelnut butter are a few favorites)
  • Cod Liver Oil or Omega 3 oil from Nordic Naturals

  1. Hej Jane.
    Jeg ser tit i engelske opskrifter, at de bruger “coconut flour”. Er det, det samme som vores danske kokosfibermel? Eller et andet produkt?

    Husker jeg forkert, hvis jeg mindes at du engang har skrevet om kokosfibermel’s påvirkning af fordøjelsen, og at det kan være lidt hårdt for sarte maver?

    Håber du har tid til at svare – forstår hvis du har travlt :)

    • Ja jeg er ret sikker på, at det er henad det samme produkt.

      Og ja, fibrene i kokosfibermel er virkelig hårde for min mave og jeg bruger det kun sparsomt. Eller spiser det kun i meget begrænset mængde. Det er lidt ærgerligt for det er et lækkert produkt, synes jeg. Pofiber derimod har jeg ingen nævneværdige problemer med.
