Something I get a lot of requests for are grocery shopping posts. I used to post my groceries all the time so today I thought I would bring it back!
What you see here is a very typical week’s worth of groceries. I aim to spend $50-60 per week on my groceries and it usually works out, thanks to Trader Joe’s and a well planned out list. If I don’t have a list all hell breaks loose.
Trust me…I know from experience.
Now, I usually will buy my produce either at the farmer’s market or at the farm stand, but this morning I was coming from a particularly challenging yoga class and already starving so driving to two food locations just wasn’t in the cards.
And I’m not going to lie. Since I stopped posting all my meals I’ve become incredibly boring. Seriously. I eat a lot of egg sandwiches on paper towels and caprese salads for quick dinners on the run. However, I do try to cook one or two “big” meals a week for Almanzo and I that leaves leftovers to get creative with. Last week I made us white chicken chili, and other “big meals” in the past few weeks can be found here, here and here.
Do you have a particular grocery store strategy? We are getting a brand new HUGE Whole Foods here that opens in four days so I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for battle in the bulk bins. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
