On Guy’s Grocery Games, “Five Ingredients or Less” is inarguably the most well-known, difficult and popular game. And why is that? Because “everybody plays the game at home and goes, ‘Here’s my five,'” says the show’s host, Guy Fieri. It’s hard to resist even if it’s just left up to the imagination. “It’s awesome to see what the chefs come up with here [on the show],” continues Guy, especially when there are those who make it even more challenging for themselves by creating a dish with just four ingredients! That’s what makes the game so fun — it can go any which way.
We asked Guy to play along and come up with his favorite five-ingredient dish, but he doesn’t stop at just one combination. He says, “It depends on what day it is, what time it is, what you just had for lunch, what you’re going to have for dinner, what you are emotionally, how you’re feeling physically, what temperature is it outside.” But Guy’s first combination surprised us.

“Going to the grocery store is one of my favorite things to do,” says Guy Fieri, host of Guy’s Grocery Games. Now in its fifth season, there’s a reason why the show is so popular. That’s because everyone shops. Everyone has to get to the store, whether they like it or not, unless they’re grocery shopping online, something you’ll never find Guy doing. But the point is that grocery shopping affects us all. And Guy’s Grocery Games turns the mundane chore into a fun game. Who hasn’t dreamt of running down the aisles of the supermarket in a shopping spree?
We recently caught up with Guy on the set of the show to find out what grocery shopping is like for him, his tried-and-true method, what he likes to buy (what he can’t leave without) and what’s the absolute top thing he hates about going to the supermarket — it’s something that probably has happened to you before.

More often than not, you hear parents complain that their kids won’t eat anything, they’re picky and they press their mouths closed at the thought of trying a new food. One of the easiest ways to get kids to become fantastic eaters is by getting them involved in the cooking process. Try out a few of these tips to see how quickly you can turn your resistant eater into a budding chef!
10. Take them grocery shopping with you. Let them pick out a new fruit, vegetable or meat to try with dinner tonight.
9. Look through cookbooks and recipe websites together. Have the kids choose a few recipes they would like to try making.
8. Assign age-appropriate tasks in the kitchen, like measuring ingredients, pressing the button on the food processor or being in charge of the kitchen timer.
7. Taste everything together. Talk about the colors, textures and flavors of ingredients. Then talk about how they’re different after being cooked.

How often do you put off grocery shopping as long as possible to avoid having to take your kids with you? You can already hear them moaning, groaning and grabbing for every last food that you don’t want to buy. These ideas will have you actually excited to shop as a family, watching your little ones learning as they go, and excited about all the nutritious foods they will be asking to eat throughout the week!
10. Always have a list. Before you leave the house, make a list and stick to it.
9. Ask kids what they want to add to the list and then make them responsible for finding the items in the store.
8. Before you leave the house, take inventory of your kitchen. Assess what you actually use on a regular basis and notice which items sit in your pantry for months on end. Make a mental or literal note to avoid those items while shopping.

When it comes to grocery shopping, everyone has a strategy, whether it’s to get in and get out as fast as you can, or to stick to the list no matter what and not veer off. Guy Fieri, host of Guy’s Grocery Games, says that his important tip is shopping together. And that not only applies to himself and his family on an individual level, but it’s also advice for the families competing in Guy’s Grocery Games: Family Style, airing Sundays in January at 8|7c.
Guy is proud to say he personally loves grocery shopping, but when it comes to shopping with the family, he has “really strict rules,” especially in a big-box store. Find out what he says in his interview with FN Dish about the show’s family competition.
