Lately I’ve been really into watching Youtube videos of grocery hauls. I’m not sure why. I guess I just like seeing what other people buy! It also gives me ideas of new products to try sometimes.
I hate seeing myself on camera, so I know I would never do a vlog, but I thought I could do the next best thing-blog!
I usually do my grocery shopping on Saturdays for the week. I don’t have a set budget, but do try to buy what is on sale.
Here is what I bought this week:
I know, this isn’t healthy, but I like snacks! The sweet potato tortilla chips and Spanish rice mix will be part of meals during the week. I eat cereal most mornings for breakfast and the snack mix, popcorn and Doritos are for snacking throughout the week.
For produce I have:
- One lime
- One bulb of garlic
- One red onion
- Two avocados
- Baby carrots
- Two Fuji apples
- One red bell pepper
- One yellow bell pepper
- Green beans
For meats/proteins, I got:
- Deli turkey (oven roasted and honey glazed)
- Ground pork
- Chicken breast (they were buy one, get one free, so I got two packages)
For dairy/frozen foods I purchased:
- Orange juice
- Frozen waffles
- Greek yogurt (I think I got about 10, both my husband and I take one to work everyday)
This is my dinner plan for the week:
Sunday: Chicken fajitas with Spanish rice
Tuesday: Lo Mein with shrimp
Wednesday: Quinoa chili – I already have this in the freezer. I make this with ground turkey, and make a few minor changes to the recipe based on what I have. I scoop this up with the sweet potato tortilla chips. They’re so good!
Friday: We always do takeout! I’m the only one who cooks, so by the end of the week I need a break! 🙂
Saturday: We usually go out somewhere.
For breakfasts, I’ll usually have cereal, yogurt and fruit. Sometimes I’ll have hard boiled eggs and smoothies. Lunch is usually a simple sandwich or leftovers. I’ll eat out for lunch one or twice a week, because I do tend to get bored with sandwiches, or want to save leftovers for dinner.
That’s it for this week! I may be stopping by Trader Joe’s tomorrow, and will try to blog about that!
