Weekly Shopping Trips

Once you have your kitchen stocked with the basics, the only things left to buy are fresh provisions for about a week’s worth of meals. After a few weeks in your new routine, you’ll realize that your list of essentials looks similar from week to week, so shopping will get that much quicker and easier.

Here’s a recent shopping list of mine that I used to buy about a week’s worth of groceries:

  • 1 box unsalted, unbuttered popcorn
  • 4 apples
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 big bunch green grapes
  • 1 bag baby carrot sticks (great to dipping in hummus)
  • 2 boxes organic baby spinach (for salads or as side vegetables)
  • 1 bunch fresh kale
  • 2 cucumbers (for salads or as a snack)
  • 5 ribs celery (for snacking or dipping)
  • 1 bag sugar snap peas
  • 3 onions
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 2 jalapeño peppers
  • 3 red bell peppers (for dips, salads)
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey (for turkey burgers, turkey meatballs, or turkey chili)
