Today after work, I went to the local organic grocery store to get my shop on! Since I’ve had a couple people ask me what I buy when I grocery shop, I’m going to show you everything I got. I always grocery shop knowing exactly what I need and what we will be eating during the week. This way I don’t just throw a bunch of random things in the cart.
Here is what I found:
Protein- Chicken Breast, Brown Eggs and Tofu. We have a few different proteins in the freezer right now (turkey burgers, grass fed ground beef, fish), so I really didn’t have to buy much.
Dairy- Lots of cheese (feta, parmesan, pepper jack, American) and Earth Balance
Healthy Carbs- Ezekiel Pitas and Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
Random- Cranberry Juice, Ketchup, Pasta Sauce, Mayo, Salsa
Produce- Celery, Carrots, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Granny Smith Apples, Cabbage, Spinach, Spring Mix, Parsnips, Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli. I think that’s all of them!
Here is how we will use the groceries during the week, we will probably stray a little from this menu, but you get the idea:
- Monday Dinner: Apple and Gorgonzola Salad
- Tuesday Dinner: Asian Chicken Salad
- Wednesday: Fish Tacos
- Thursday Lunch: Turkey Burgers and Parsnip Fries
- Thursday Dinner: Feta Nut Salad
- Friday Lunch: Baked Tofu and Broccoli
- Friday Dinner: Steak, Sweet Potato and Green Salad
Dinner tonight was Apple and Gorgonzola Salad with San Pellegrino. The best!
I love the flavors of this meal!
Quincy wanted to say Hi to you all! : )
Well, I’m off to play with the little guy then getting to bed early!
Question: What do you always need to buy at the grocery store? I never leave the grocery store without a new jar of salsa!
