grocery shopping success part 1

Are you a NASCAR driver hugging the outside food isles OR riding a horse and carriage strolling aimlessly up and down every isle?

Grocery shopping is a fact of life and is a reoccurring endeavor.  For some, it's an ordeal lasting over an hour.  For others, it's a maze of headaches.  My friends, it doesn't have to be this way.

If you had the opportunity to take care of your grocery shopping in less than 30 minutes, would you go for it?

I'm giving you what I believe is a simple but comprehensive food list that provides the energy and building blocks for successful training, physique goals, and general wellness.  Examine the list and compare it to your grocery list...assuming you keep one.  :)
