My Shopping List

Posted by on Dec 4, 2011 | 3 comments

I’ve recently spent some time compiling a list of all the store-bought, convenience products I use. The list represents several hundred hours of research (over the years), as I’m not one to haphazardly grab random products from grocery store shelves. Over the past 6 months, I’ve done a great deal of additional research to seek out newer products. I was excited to have found so many new, tasty keepers =)

I purposely don’t have a website with advertisements, as that’s not my style, but of course, I do dedicate quite a bit of time to posting recipe ideas and health information in the name of sharing, and am very grateful to have the opportunity to do so.

If anyone is interested in this type of list, I’m humbly asking for a $30 donation. Upon receiving payment, I’ll email you the list. It’s as simple as that.

If you do decide you’d like to partake in this exchange, I hope the information included saves you time (from having to play food detective) and provides you with some additional choices you can enjoy and feel good about offering your family.

For those who purchase, I’d be happy to answer inquiries in regard to specific products you’re curious about that aren’t on the list (simply email me the product ingredients and I’ll take a look as time allows). It could be that I’m unaware of the product, or that I purposely passed it up for one reason or another (of which I’d share with you).

If anyone would like to receive periodic updates (as I find new acceptable products), please include an additional $15 payment ($45 total). This service does not expire – You will receive personal email notifications from me indefinitely, whenever I come across a new product that makes the grade. Of course, all email communication will be sent BCC to protect privacy.

Please email me at dianeschnier@gmail.com with “YOUR SHOPPING LIST” in the subject line if interested in this exchange. Please also indicate whether you want the list – OR – the list AND periodic updates and I’ll generate and email you a paypal invoice (if you prefer not to use paypal just let me know and you can mail a check).

    Hi Diane,
    I would be interested in this but I live in Australia so the brands would mostly be different I would imagine.
    I look at your blog almost every day though and you inspire me greatly.
    With love,
    Jane

    Hi Jane :)
    I will email you the list. Who knows, maybe there are a few items on there that are available to you. And wow – so nice to be part of your world from all the way over here in Upstate NY. Thank you… and my very best to you and yours. Much love, Diane

    Hi Diane,

    Wow, what a GREAT idea! So many of us want to do the right thing more often when it comes to the health and nutrition of our families, but just don’t have/make the time to really do the necessary research. We blindly trust or hope for the best, and then so often find that our food is dangerous.

    Thank you for your passion and dedication to healthy and delicious living; it’s truly a life saver for busy people who want to eat better.

    I’m so excited about this list! It feels like I’m getting all the answers to a test!! (:

    Thanks again,
    Lee
