Sundays are for grocery shopping.
At least, in our house it is. It’s probably one of my least favorite things to do from the crazy parking lot to traffic in the aisles to ten minute long lines to not being able to find parking when we get home, but, hey, no food, no eating!
I want to share with you what our average grocery shopping for the week looks like. There are some items not here for example almond milk and granola, both of which we already had, but this is a pretty average haul for the two of us!
Every morning for breakfast, we both have a light multi-grain English muffin with about 2 tablespoons of reduced fat peanut butter. It’s delicious and I actually look forward to it when I go to bed at night!
On the menu for lunch prep this week: ground turkey meat, green beans, and quinoa. The EVOO we were out of (we just got back from a month in Rhode Island) and I use it in the skillet so that the turkey meat doesn’t stick.
For dinner, I like to have meat cooked and ready to throw into a salad. This week we made chicken and tried out the La Choy Stir Fry Orange Ginger sauce. Dole Sesame Asian salad is a favorite of ours and just a few extra wontons to add in!
Aside from the fruit, the rest of the items will last us at least 2 weeks. We usually slice up the strawberries and bring those with some yogurt for a snack for 2 of our late work nights. The Light and Fit Greek yogurts are only 80 cals and the sugar count is not out of control like some other yogurts. The Harvest Snaps, while a little high in sodium, are low in cals and you can eat quite a few in a serving! Each bag is only 3 servings. The apples and granola bars are just to snack on when we get hungry between meals.
These are just a few extras we threw in. I LOVE olives and we happened to run out this week. I throw them in salads during the week. The cauliflower rice comes in handy for dinner if the salad runs out. The extra lettuce can be added to the chopped Asian Salad for dinner. The lemons are great to add to water or to make freshly squeezed lemonade with water and a little agave nectar or honey.
Overall, while some of the items change week to week, this is a pretty average grocery haul for our Sunday shopping. I hope this can help you make your own shopping list because the faster you can get in and out of the grocery store in a Sunday, the better.
