    You could take a look at the diaries & see if you can find anything which you feel you could eat. See if there's a pattern and just buy enough food in to last until you will be able to do a proper shop.

    As for basics it would depend which plan you chose to follow SW recommend starting on Extra Easy.

    But you will need to buy in healthy extra A's (milk & cheese), and healthy extra B's which there are so many to chose from so again just look at the diaries.

    You're obviously determined planning so far ahead, good luck :p

    yeah good luck emily, sorry if i sounded snippy at all by saying your best to post in the other section, just thought that you might get more people noticing it there and helping you out.

    as michelle was saying though, there isn't really such a thing as basics for slimming world, as your best to look through your starter pack, and see what you like, there is so much you can choose from.

    good luck though chick, and sounds like your really focused already, which is always a good start. xx

    Hi Emily

    It obviously depends on what plan you're going to be following but the things I had to buy at first was stuff like this

    definitely fry light! got about 4 of them in the cupboard lol
    herbs & spices, invest in a spice rack :D
    lots of fruit for snacking on
    muller lights or other syn free yoghurts
    vegetables
    artificial sweetener (own brand stuff is just as good btw)
    really light margerine ie flora extra light
    bovril / stock cubes
    different kinds of vinegars
    eggs
    meat if doing red or extra easy
    dried pastas & rice


    Hope this helps & good luck!

    herbs/spices
    stock cubes
    balsamic vinegar
    passata
    baked beans
    frylight
    couscous
    pasta
    rice
    lentils
    soy sauce
    potatoes
    veg
    fruit
    bread - whole wheat
    eggs
    milk
    ham
    lean bacon

    lots of things like that, which can be used to flavor recipes etc.

    I then buy my meat in costco in big packs, divide it into portions sizes and freeze it in freezer bags, so I can take out when I need it. In my freezer, I have chicken thighs, breasts, drumsticks, extra lean beef mince, pork mince and salmon fillets, which I have frozen up.

    Also when I make dishes or soups etc, I also make big portions and then freeze up some of that too, so it is on hand to take out if I need something quick.

    Chopped tomatoes, onions, celery, carrots, peppers, pasta, rice, tuna (in brine or water), babybel, mullerlights, frylight are the initial things that come to mind from most recipes I've tried so far! Also, if you eat meat some bits like chicken breasts etc are always good to stock up on, alternatively quorn pieces are free too :eek:) x
