Most everything in the center aisles.

I try to keep my grocery shopping about 99% fresh produce, meat, eggs, and dairy, and dry goods like rice and pasta, and baking staples. I also buy popcorn, but plain kernels for popping...not microwave packs. I don't do frozen prepared foods at all, but sometimes get frozen vegetables if what I need can't for some reason be found fresh. I don't typically buy deli or prepackaged lunchmeat.

Of the prepackaged foods, I will get jarred peanut butter, commercially baked bread and bagels, canned beans (I also get dried beans, but I tend to use the canned ones more) and canned tomatoes when good fresh ones aren't available. I don't really ever buy convenience foods, because my go-to convenience food is a peanut butter sandwich.

Nothing with Genetically Modified Ingredients until the test on humans is done and they live. In five years, we'll see.

The usual GRAINS - corn, sugar, soy - moldy and just BAD. AND they are all gmo!

No canned tomatoes.

No fruits or vegetables on the Dirty Dozen listing.

No toxic personal products.

Foods that are not fair trade. (As much as possible)

No moldy Peanut Butter - give me raw almond/cashew. Love the selenium in Brazil Nuts.

No processed food unless gluten free and gmo free. Organic is best, imo

No kidney killing ROOM FRAGRANCES. I just clean the house. Smells great.

No BIG corporation Pet Foods or products.

No alcohol (unless it is sulphite free and made with Organic grapes)

No more GLUTEN. No thanks. My family ALL has gut issues.

Tab was one of the first, if not the first, "diet" or "low calorie" soft drinks in the history of soft drinks. If I'm not mistaken, it was before Diet Pepsi and Diet Coke. Seems like it was made by Coca Cola, making it their first version of a diet soda. I remember they gave away free samples in a 12 ounce paper cup at the grocery store the first week when it came out. It had the nastiest taste to it but I drank it anyway. I remember I threw it up on the way home. I believe it was sweetened with cyclamates, which the government banned a few years later when it was discovered cyclamates can cause cancer.

Never had a Tab since and hardly ever gave it another thought. But I do remember it making me sick. I'm not a doctor, but I bet it was my body rejecting the cyclamates.

I think saccharine (pink packets) is what made it taste crappy - Tab went through a saccharine phase. Cyclamates were much closer to sugar in flavor, but induced bladder cancer in rats fed huge amounts of it.
