Week 2 Grocery List

I am a vegetarian which usually surprises people, especially my family and friends, because I don't like veggies - can't eat most of them without gagging. But I can juice them and I do. I've been eating vegetarian for almost 2 years. When I started I lost 32 pounds in 6 weeks and I wasn't "dieting." I was eating vegan really. Then I re-introduced cheese, salt, and processed baked goods and the weight piled on.

Now I am going back to eating vegan, but slowly and eating according to Dr. Furhman's "Eat To Live" plan. I also suffer with fibromyalgia (the reason I stopped eating meat was to help me deal with my chronic pain) and am insulin resistent.
My grocery list for the week:

red kidney beans
crushed tomatoes
tomato sauce
mustard greens
collard greens
brown rice pasta
brown rice
tomato soup
mushroom soup
fruit (whatever is in season)
various veggies for juicing
Kashi GoLean cereal
green tea
I eat locally grown produce and organic. I also drink alkaline pH balanced water so I like Fiji and SpringMountain in glass bottles. I have a very difficult time digesting wheat so if I eat pasta (when I eating right for me) I eat brown rice pasta or quinoa pasta.
I'll post later with my menu plan for the week.
