Thank you, this is an excellent list and thanks to other suggestions here at FT, I have implemented many of these items into my shopping already, but I am keeping a print out of this with me at all times!

It all depends on how much you worry about what you are putting into your body. Most deli meats are fuul of nitrates, which are thought to contribute to cancer.
There is a brand that makes nitrte free deli meat here, called dietz and watson, also i think maybe jenni-o has a turkey that is nitrate free, as people are demanding it more they will rise to the consumer need. Some people are also allergic to nitrates.
The sodium content is another issue with deli meats. Sodium can really wreak havoc in your body.
Again - it is up to you how much you want to worry about. If you are not concerned with nitrates, preservatives or high sodium, than a turkey breast sandwich on whole wheat braed with lettuce and tomato is a good lunch item.
You could get a raw turkey breast and roast it - I have found that cost-wise it really does save you money, you just ne4d to raost it and slice it up for sandwiches.

So, were oranges left off the fruit list on purpose? If so, what is wrong with them? Just seems kinda funny that grapefruit, lemons, and limes are on the list but oranges are not. Maybe you didn't want to type every fruit that you know of either...:)
Not all fruits are the greatest sources of food. There are some that are really high and sugar and some that are in a way considered "bad" fruits. (I might get criticised for that one. lol) These include fruits such as watermelon and a couple others that I can't think of right now. Maybe the oranges fall under this categorie. I doubt it though. I know that oranges are a good source of fiber and vitamin C.
Please correct me if I'm wrong anyone. It's been a great learning experience here on FT and I wouldn't mind learning more.
