Thats one hell of an expensive shopping trip.

A few things that I noticed on that list:

You have a lot of red meat there, if I was you I would get more lean means, like turkey and chicken breasts. For one they will lower your cholesterol/saturated fat intake and are quite a bit cheaper. Also, personally, I dont like to eat mince meat too often. Most often it's basically the left overs from the animal, getting any remaining meat from the carcus and mincing it.

You might like to consider things other than tuna. Tuna is an oily fish with a particularily high content of mercury, consuming 1-2 cans a day will probably put you over the recommended safe maximum mercury intake. I believe sardines contain a lesser amount of mercury. Ideally you do want an oily fish in your diet for the EFA (Essential Farry Acids).

If your up for spending money, a salmon steak with potatoes is a great choice for a high protein/carb meal, like as a post workout meal.

Ideally, everything you buy should have been through as little refinement as possible. Things like the Hovis wholemeal and your honey roast ham are not ideal. Hovis wholemeal bread is good, but not nearly as good as freshly baked granary bread from Sainsburys' bakery. Problem with buying fresh bread is that it goes off very quickly, so you'd have to buy some every couple of days. As I say, its idealistic.

My 2 pence ;)
