My Grocery List: #HealthyLiving

img_3805I talk a lot on the blog about how I eat and what I eat. I figured it would be fun for me to share my general grocery shopping list as well as a few tips and tricks I have picked up! So here it is!img_3793

Protein: This is the cornerstone of EVERY meal. I always think about what major source of protein I am going to put into breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is also where it hurts the most because this generally costs the most money! I think of it as rent or a mortgage… it will be the largest chunk being taken out of your pay check!

  • 2 – 3 cartons of eggs (I always get free range and local)
  • 1 slab of salmon (this will end up to be 4 servings)
  • 4 pork chops
  • 4 chicken breasts

Side note: Brendon’s parents raise beef so we generally do not have to buy burger or steaks… but when we lived in Seattle we would buy turkey burger as well.img_3831

Produce: In my opinion you can never have enough fresh fruits and veggies in the house! We have an awesome garden so in the summer we grow a lot of our own veggies. This is also where I get choosy about organic or not.

Veggies:

  • 2 Large containers of Organic Spinach (I have heard that Spinach has the best nutritional value for you… even over Kale!)
  • 2 heads of Broccoli
  • 2 Bell Peppers
  • 5 Tomatoes
  • 2 Onions (one red one white)
  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 package of Brussels Sprouts OR Asparagus
  • Sometimes 4 Sweet Potatoes

Fruits:

  • 2 Containers of Blueberries
  • 1 Container of Strawberries
  • 1 Container of Blackberries
  • 1 Container of Raspberries (I eat berries when I get a sweet tooth in the middle of the day)
  • 4 Pears/Peaches (depending on the season)
  • 4 Apples
  • 1 case of Satsumas/Clementines if they are available (I always have a hard time eating citrus but it is so important for your blood flow and metabolism)

Snacks: Now I use what is left of my budget to buy snacks! This is also where I purchase my little fun extras if I am planning a special meal or something.

  • 1 LB. of Dried Figs from the bulk section (this is my GUILTY PLEASURE)
  • at least 6 Stretch Island Fruit Leather Strips
  • Sometimes a Buffalo Mozzarella Ball I am hankering for a caprese salad
  • RED WINE!
  • Salted Carmel Chocolate Bars – because sometimes it is the only thing that helps
  • Nutella (the large container)
  • Raw Cashews (from the bulk section)

Ask me any questions you all have!  This is the plan that works for me… but I am always available to chat about solutions!
