I hope this helps your friend get started. All of this depends on his or her dietary goals. For instance, right now I am staying away from fruits and nuts because I am trying to lose weight. Fruits are high in sugar and nuts are high in fat. Plus it can be hard to control portions with these items.
Additionally, I would advise your friend to buy what veggies and fruits he can organic in order to avoid unwanted chemical and pesticide exposure..
Eggs, grass fed beef, pasture raised chicken, salmon, beef jerk, avocados, merry mix, kerrygold butter, macadamia nuts, olive oil, ghee, cocunut oil. I also eat dairy so I get full fat yogurt, kefir, and aged cheddar cheese.
