groceryshopping list 1


Very frequently, I get asked, “Sarah, what do YOU buy at the grocery store each week?” I used to keep a list on the website of a typical grocery list, but found that over time it changed and I just couldn’t keep up with the changes. So I removed it. Today, I am going to share with you what a current grocery list for me looks like (as of today :)) But please keep in mind that this list changes with my taste buds, fitness goals, the season, etc. I have a tendency to go on streaks of eating the same foods week after week and then switching it up! But some things will forever be a staple….like my brussels sprouts! 🙂

As you can see, I am a huge fan of vegetables! I eat them all day! I was actually thinking about logging how many servings of veggies I eat in a single day! haha I eat very basic, simple foods because I am usually short on time. My favorite quick late night meal is what I like to call my “refrigerator dump salad”! I take any veggies I am in the mood for, saute them up and throw them on top of some lettuce! Ta Da! Dinner! 🙂

*What is your favorite “quick dinner”?

*Do you find yourself buying the same foods week after week?

    Sarah, I LOVE brussels sprouts!  I pack my breakfast and lunch every week day and it’s basically the same staples with a slight variation of fruit here and there. In the evenings and on weekends, I cook with a variety of vegetables and add a salad and red meat or turkey as the mood strikes. According to my latest food diary (UGH!), I need to work on consuming more carbs and reducing my fat intake (unfortunately, I’m a tree nut nut :)).

  • Just recently posted about dietary variety and how I'm torn on whether it's important to mix things up or not. I'm like you - I tend to buy the same things for a few weeks in a row and then switch!
