Whole wheat English muffins
Kashi Go Lean cereal
Fruit- oranges, apples, bananas, right now there are finally peaches, cherries, apricots, nectarines, etc.

Grass-fed ground beef

Frozen fruit and veggies
Sprouted wheat bread
These are just a few ideas, certainly not a comprehensive list! Do you plan your meals? I always (well, except for lately it seems) plan my meals, then shop around that. This keeps me from throwing away food, and it helps take the guess work out. I even plan out my snacks.

I'm sure I'm missing some things but this is what a typical week looks like. I make sandwhiches, grilled chicken salads, wraps, burritos, etc for lunch. I make homemade egg Mcmuffins, eggs with toast, cottage cheese and fruit, etc for breakfast.
Ground white turkey, turkey bacon (low sodium), turkey kielbasa and chicken breast are really the only meats I buy that I eat.
Lots of fruits and veggies.
Fiber One bars, Kelloggs cereal bars (I buy store brand of both of those though), laughing cow cheese, peanut butter, wheat or wonder smart white bread, eggs, whole wheat bagels, low fat shredded cheese, smart taste pasta, brown rice, spaghetti sauce.
I usually just look around and decide.
