Thanks for stopping by to check out the second post in my series, ‘In My Cart’!
This week was a little more expensive than usual because we did our bi-monthly bulk buy at Sam’s Club over the weekend.
The total will only be for the food I plan on eating. We bought food for Derrick before he leaves, and household items we were low, on making the total over double what I would have spent on my own meals.
Below I have posted what I bought this week, the cost, and my weekly menu;
Since we were in Bismarck for the better part of Sunday I wanted to be able to throw everything I needed for breakfast and lunch for the week in the oven and be done with it.
Breakfast: Egg Whites + Turkey Bacon + Tortilla
Lunch: Baked Chicken Breast + Baked Brussels Sprouts + Quinoa
Snack: Blueberries / Banana / Strawberries / Grapefruit / Trail mix…I like to mix it up!
Dinner: Grilled Chicken / Salmon + Brussels Sprouts / Green Beans + Rice [depending on the night and what Derrick wants]
In my cart-
- 5 Packages of raw Brussels Sprouts
- 1 Package of Green Beans
- 1 Carton of Strawberries
- 1 Carton of Blueberries
- 1 Carton of Organic Eggs
- 2 Bags of frozen Salmon
- 1 Bag of Quinoa
- 1 Jar of Nutella
- 1 Round of Bree [I have a legit Bree addiction…I cannot live without it!]
- 1 Bag of Grapefruits
- 1 Bag of Trail Mix
- 4 Bananas [not pictured]
- 5 Lemons [not pictured]
Because Derrick works away from home for weeks at a time, some of the items in the cart were for him and not included in the list above. I won’t include their cost as well, as they are not part of my diet!
This cost around $90.00 and I have plenty of Brussels Sprouts to freeze and bake in the future. I always have a ton of lemons to put in water, squeeze for fresh dressings, or cook with. Its the easiest, and healthiest, seasoning!
I baked the chicken and Brussels Sprouts in the oven with light seasoning and olive oil and cooked the Quinoa on the stove. I portioned my meals for the week in easy to grab containers and planned on waking up with enough to time scramble some eggs before heading out the door.
Total Cost = $90.00
Total Cook Time (shopping not included) = Less than an hour as I only prepped my lunches!
I hope you all have had a healthful week so far!
What do you do to set yourself up to have a healthy week?
