My Healthy Grocery Haul

A lot of you have been asking for a grocery list… so here ya go! It definitely changes every week depending on the recipes I’m going to make. Here’s what I got at the store this week that includes some staples!

Side note– I promise you, buying healthy groceries doesn’t have to break the bank. I am a coupon queen and don’t waste money on sugary snacks. Produce isn’t expensive either, let’s get that myth out of the way here…Just think, you could buy Oreo’s & Lay’s Chips for $6 or buy cauliflower, broccoli and some peppers for the same price.

Anyways, onto the haul!

Random Things

  • Kombucha
    • If you need digestion help, kombucha is your bff!
  • Chilli paste & 1 lime
    • For a recipe

 

**Not pictured**

  • Chicken, pork loin and tuna
    • Not pictured because who wants to see a pic of raw chicken…?
  • Drinks
    • We always have sparkling water (mine) and coke zero (his)

 

I try to stick to real foods or simply processed packaged goods. It’s all about the ingredients! I’m obsessive about checking the ingredients in everything! You’d be surprised on how much fake stuff & added sugar is in everyday items. (There is added sugar in many common pasta sauces…what?!)

What’s on your grocery list that I need to add to mine?
