Grocery haul from last week that will roll into the next few weeks. I stocked up on some essentials to save money and time, which meant not having to go to the store this week. I’m in Chicago until Thursday, and then I leave for Columbus to see the boy 🤗
Meals this week will probably be:
M1: smoothie or yogurt with granola (plus coffee... duh)
M2: cuties or apple
M3: salad with salmon
M4: nuts or bar
M5: salad with salmon
I also have my @wildscapefood meals that I may use as meals on their own or add ons to my salads if I feel like I want a little extra. As far as workouts go, I’m going to try to get my runs in to prep for the @nycmarathon, but I also have some appointments and work obligations after work this week. It’s going to be a busy week, but then I can relax and have some fun this weekend. 🙌🏼🎉 #running#marathontraining#tiuteam#tiuchicago#chitone#groceryhaul#sundaymealprep
A lot of people struggle with what to eat when they’re trying to switch to a healthier lifestyle. I know I did. There’s vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, paleo, keto, gluten-free, dairy-free, and on and on and on...
No wonder it can be confusing and overwhelming!! My advice: EAT REAL FOOD. Eat foods that don’t come with an ingredient label. Bell peppers for snacks, giant bowls of veggies for lunch, roast broccoli and onions, add pulverized cauliflower to soup bases for extra creamy textures, throw spinach and banana and some frozen fruit into a blender... the options are endless!
I got this cart full of produce, plus a pound of ground beef, a sirloin steak, and a few other random things I added after snapping this pic, for under $50. On the menu this week: creamy tahini zoodles with chicken sausage, enchilada soup, Greek kale salad, avocado tuna melts, roasted steak and veggies, and chicken salad. Some of those things might sound fancy, but I promise you, the prep time and ingredient list are both less than 10. 👏🏼
What’s in your shopping cart this week, and what are you most excited to eat?! #selfcareinhealthcare#groceryhaul
Is grocery shopping your most dreaded task? I remember I used to go to the grocery store blind as to what I needed to make meals.
Let me share with you some tips that helped me shop efficiently!
1. Make a list and stick to it! 📝
2. Stay on the perimeter of the store, here you’ll find your produce, protein and dairy 🍅 🥛 🍉 All the essentials. Also, you won’t be tempted by those middle isles snacks 🙅♀️
3. Have a mission mindset. With a goal set in mind you’ll be less likely to wander around.

Small @traderjoes haul!! I don’t live close to a TJ so when I’m near one, I always have a walk around! This is what I came home with and I obviously was feeling the “fall” theme 🍁 I have already dipped into the guacamole and I definitely recommend. I make sure to always check ingredients as I am shopping and all of these items pass the test 🙌🏻 #breakbreadwithk
