THE GROCERY LIST

Hey everyone, I’m back 🙂

Monday was grocery shopping day, yup, my fridge begged for some action and I obliged. I mentioned sharing my week’s shopping list with you and its ready. Oh wait, before we dive in, I need to stress a point. Do NOT go grocery shopping blind. Tossing things in that you ‘might’ need, might being the keyword here.  Cause 9 times out of 10, you will throw out that ‘true organic dijon mustard’.  So;

  • come up with at least 3 meals for the week. (or 2 weeks: veggies are perishable so keep your time span short)

This is usually the hardest part for me, but once you know what you’ll eat, the rest is a breeze.

Monday:

Breakfast: Oatmeal, tea spoon of peanut butter, Mixed berries, almond milk .

I bought: Mixed berries, Almond milk. (I have two big cans of oatmeal sitting on top and my fridge & i never let my self run out of peanut butter).

Lunch: Chicken salad

I bought: Chicken breast,Kale, Baby spinach, almonds, Balsamic vinaigrette, (Already had cherry tomatoes)

Dinner: Baked sweet potatoes fries with home made guac (I know this sounds heavy for dinner, but I go to the gym right after work so its a refuel meal).

I bought: Sweet potatoes, avocados.

Others.

Fruits: grapes, lime, mangoes, pineapple, pomegranate, apple.

Snacks: Now this is my favourite part because I love snacking, I like to use the phrase “its in my blood” as an excuse because no one knows how to snack better than my mum. So since I love this activity so much, I sought out healthy snackies in order to stay on track.
I bought:

Trader Joe’s inner peas (Baked green peas)

multi grain chips

dried fruit

wheat crackers

almonds/mixed nuts

Thats it! 50-70usd (depending on sales etc). I picked up extra stuff but nothing too crazy,sticking to the list is a major key guys. I also meal prepped on Monday , now I don’t have to worry about cooking the rest of the week. Hope y’all learnt something. Remember to take it a step at a time.

Look forward to fun recipes on here next week. Have an awesome week!

-love, Mfon 🙂 xx
