Grocery Shopping Haul!
Happy Sunday everyone, it’s the start of a new week and the Sunday before the holidays. I decided to give you guys some insight on what I purchased between yesterday and today in terms of groceries and a couple of clothing items as well.
So recently I have been getting questions on how one should change their eating habits and what type of food should one be consuming. I always tell people the right amount of veggies, protein and carbs are important, not to over eat and not to under eat as well. With this I just wanted to give a little insight on how I shop for my food throughout my journey.
From left to right I have broccoli florets, almond milk, chicken breast, Greek yogurt, cantaloupe, mixed veggies, coconut oil, roasted red pepper hummus, peanut butter, frozen mangos, more yogurt, beef jerky and trail mix.
I just want to highlight a few items that I purchased and actually super excited about.
1) Greek Vanilla Yogurt:
I’ve never bought this brand of Greek yogurt before but I thought I would give it a try. With this bring 160 cals a cup and 20 grams of protein I thought it was a good idea to give it a try.
2) Coconut Oil
I usually cook in olive oil and I’ve never cooked with coconut oil, so I really wanted to give this a try. I hear constant chatter about cooking in different types of oil such as Grapeseed, avocado and a whole list of oils.
3) Indulgent Trail Mix:
This has to be THE BEST trail mix I’ve ever had. It’s filled with a lot of nuts and little sweets such as chocolate and peanut butter chips. Oh and it has cranberries and raisins as well. Doesn’t that just sound good? It’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty.
You know, I called these beef jerky but I don’t really think they are. I’m not sure what these things are but it’s something else I wanted to try, they are very small and are only 45 calories a stick and six grams of protein. A nice on the go snack.
Do I have to explain this? I love broccoli, I think I can eat about three cups of this and not get sick of it, so I was very excited to just buy a bag of broccoli. Oh, I didn’t really buy it because it said organic, I bought it because it was broccoli. Yum!
Because I needed a pair of black jeans, I bought them. Still swearing a size 12, which is better than my pervious size 16, but I’m ready to move down to a 10.
I also purchased this turquoise beanie. It’s wintertime here in NYC and temperatures are dropping, so I needed something for my head, I don’t like hats much anyway, but this I can work with.
Well that’s pretty much it folks. I hope this helped and if it didn’t let me know what would and I’ll make a post about that!
