I usually try to go grocery shopping over the weekend so I can prep food for the week but this weekend got away from me so I made my way there today. My fridge consisted of some bread, a couple of eggs, and a random pack of peppers which makes for slim pickings for meals. After an awesome suggestion, I thought I would let you know what I usually buy at the grocery store and what I like to keep on hand for throwing together breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks.
-ANYTHING…okay not helpful…
-Salad staples: bag of spinach, bag of lettuce/head of lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, mushrooms, broccoli slaw
-Extras for meals depending on sales/seasonal: squash, kale, peppers, grapes, oranges, berries..go crazy…
-Plain fat-free greek yogurt
-2% cottage cheese
-Reduced fat feta cheese
-Unsweetened vanilla almond breeze
-Vegetable mixes and other veggies
-Pepper and onion mix
-Fish (salmon or tilapia)
-Whole wheat pasta
-Canned beans (black, chickpeas, kidney)
-Whey chocolate/vanilla protein powder
-Kashi chewy granola bars
-Coffee (I use Nestle individual instant coffee packs)
-Tea (peppermint, Earl Grey, vanilla chia, etc)
-Whole wheat flour
-Reduced sugar ketchup
-Mustard, spicy and yellow
-Braggs Liquid Amino Acids
-Spices! cinnamon, cumin, chili powder, garlic, oregano, etc
…shew…that seems like a HUGE list and unfortunately I probably left something off…but of course, as you build your pantry staples, you won’t need to get those often.
Anything I seem to have left off the list?!
