This Week’s Grocery Haul

14 Jan

I ate really well last week and want to keep it up this week! Therefore, I got a lot of healthy stuff at the grocery store yesterday that I’m excited about.

A few days ago my mom and I went to Whole Foods first but only picked up a few items, such as Ezekiel bread (which I have been dying to try), organic turkey breast slices, and almond milk (which I could get anywhere but needed it that day), and natural peanut butter.

Yesterday we went to the normal grocery store and picked up a ton of stuff too! Here’s everything we brought home:

allstuffI’ll go through each section so you can get a closer look:

1Above, starting with the beets and going clockwise, we have the beets for a baked chicken and veggies dish, grapes, crushed tomatoes, sweet potatoes, avocados, and hummus.


Clockwise again, we got lentils to make a lentil and veggies dish (trying to do a no-meat dinner once a week), organic blueberry jam for my mom, roasted garlic tomato sauce, mixed greens for salads, couscous (because I’ve never tried it), chicken sausage, and apples.


Lastly, acorn squash, baby carrots, collard greens to make wraps, plum tomatoes, limes, and oranges.

I can’t wait to make some delicious meals this week!

Do you enjoy grocery shopping as much as I do? What meals do you already have planned for this week?

    Looks fantastic! Couscous is really delicious. I like putting in some toasted almond slices and dried cranberries, along with a bit of curry powder and roast chicken. Maybe you can save some of your chicken from the beet dish to add to the couscous! My guy and I cook a lot on the weekend to have food for the week, so have some roast chicken, some roast vegetables, some lean ground beef with chiles and onions. My guy also made a GREAT Beef Beet Barley soup yesterday….
    Keep up the good clean eating! Maybe if we all support each other, we can keep it up!

      That couscous idea sounds delicious (almonds and cranberries) I will have to try that! I have tried cooking on the weekends too and it just never works for me haha.

      I will check out that recipe thanks a lot!

    I also want to try Ezekiel bread! Haven’t seen it anywhere though. Also, I am intrigued by the boxed crushed tomatoes. I really wanted to avoid buying canned tomatoes since they’re not supposed to be good because of the aluminum, but I can’t find even bottled ones anywhere!

      I got the bread at Whole Foods. Love it!
      I definitely recommend Pomi crushed tomatoes. It’s all natural and no aluminum!
