Grocery Shopping for the (mostly) Clean EaterPosted on October 8, 2014 at 12:01 am
I posted a picture on Instagram this weekend of an outfit and mentioned that I was going grocery shopping. I had a few people ask if I could do a grocery haul post. Well you know the drill…you ask, I make it happen (well try to anyway).
I typically go grocery shopping once a week (on Sundays) and spend between $150-200. I know that sounds like a lot, but I also get a lot. I don’t eat out at all during the week, and I eat 5 meals a day at home. I consider myself a (mostly) clean eater so here is a look at what I buy at the grocery store:
I do most of my shopping on the outskirts of the store…in the produce, meat, and dairy areas. That’s a big tip when you’re trying to eat clean…avoid the aisles, because that’s where you find most of the processed stuff. I do get some stuff in the aisles, obviously, like nut butter, coffee, and spices, but I don’t buy pre-packaged snacks or anything like that.
If you’re unsure about what “eating clean” really means, I have a post that you can read here.
I hope this helps inspire your grocery list a bit (: I’ll be back Friday with a new ab workout for Operation Ab-Tober!
