Grocery Haul (Travel Week)

Grocery time!

My groceries for the week with some of my cleaning products peeking out! ¬†Well most of them – I realize now that I forgot one thing ūüôā ¬†This week is a small shop as I will be in and out of town, so I didn’t need to get as much. ¬† I have a $80/week shopping budget I stick to and this week I spent $57 total. ¬†Not bad!
1. Bottled Water – I don’t usually buy this, but I wanted to get this for the week to keep in my car when traveling to and from (and during). ¬†My Sigg is great, but so awkward in the car to drink from. ¬†These are better and I never drink hotel water for some reason. ¬†
2. Fruit (grapes and clementines)
3. Chobani (pre-workout or mid morning snack)
4. Avocado Oil – This is a new thing I decided to grab since it was a travel week and I didn’t need as much other stuff. ¬†I wanted to try it because it is a great healthy fat AND it’s really good for high heat cooking. ¬†I’ve heard such great things about it, definitely want to see if I like it.
5. Newman’s Own Cheese Pizza – this has a really great ingredients list and is a great vehicle for a meal. ¬†I’ll cook it about half way, then pile on my meat serving. ¬†When I take it out, I make a salad (just greens and cranberries) and pile it on top of my portion of pizza. ¬†Delicious and feels decadent when it’s really not. ¬†Oh I also add some red pepper flakes, yum!
6. Applegate Farms Chicken Sausage and Patties – this is a stock up item because they are all kind of pricey because Applegate items are natural and antibiotic free. ¬†I like the sausage for the egg bakes I make for breakfast and the patties to use in salads sometimes because it takes 2 seconds to microwave. ¬†I try to plan to have food for all my meals but let’s be honest – sometimes I am in a jam. ¬†These save me from a situation where I’m starving and dinner looks to be 30-60 min away and am desperate. ¬†
7. Perdue Chicken Breasts – I love these because they are individually packaged but I usually don’t get them b/c they are really pricey. ¬†They were on sale today so into the freezer they go! ¬†I keep my food costs down by buying things on sale and freezing them until I need them. ¬†These are¬†Jamaican jerk flavor – whatever that is supposed to be? ¬†Yes I have never had jerk chicken before. ¬†But I guess I will find out. ¬†These also are low in carbs, even with seasonings, so another good quick thing to have on hand.
8. Olivia’s Organic Spring Mix (not pictured) – Salad greens plain and simple. ¬†I have some left from the big container I bought last week, so I just bought a small container. ¬†I am not a fan of spinach, but spring mix pretty much rocks my world. ¬†¬†

    1. It is delicious!! I had it this week because I didn’t want to cook food that just sat all week. I don’t do it weekly, but it’s a better treat than what I used to do!
