Just popping in for a quick bit to participate in WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) and share some pictures of what I’ve been eating this week! It’s been a crazy busy week and I trying not to overwhelm myself with everything I am doing. With that said I have been skimping out on taking pictures of my meals.
To make it up to all of you, I have included my weekly shopping list. I get asked periodically what I buy each week to create the meals I make and honestly, it varies depending on my cravings. However, there are many grocery items I get week after week.
I believe that life should be in balance. Right now I myself, am trying to find balance in my schedule.
Along with that, so too should eating be in balance. You will see from this list how I strike a balance with all sorts of foods (proteins/carbs/fats) each week. I think you will be able to tell how much I love my fruit!! 🙂
– fruit wild card (this switches up week to week- I get something out of the ordinary. Maybe mangos, kiwi, grapes, a cantaloupe)
-sugar snap peas
-red leaf lettuce
-honey roasted turkey from the deli (for sandwiches)
-light swiss cheese from the deli (sliced thin for sandwiches)
– ground turkey breast
-crab in a can
-tuna in a can
– greek yogurts (vanilla and plain)
– laughing cow cheese spread triangles
-loaf of bread for the week
-box of Cheerios
-box of Chex cereal
-trail-mix (usually includes an assortment of nuts, raisins, & chocolate and peanut butter chips)
-ice cream sandwiches (the best summer dessert!)
