Making Meals in My Mind

Making Meals in My Mind

Today, I went shopping at Publix for my groceries for my first week eating 100% Whole. I thought I would spend a ton, and maybe to you I did, but I think I spent a good amount on my food choices and bought what I could on sale. The $5.00 olive oil won't be purchased again for a long time so that's a one-time-purchase and I bought plenty of meat to last 1.5-2 weeks since I have more already stocked in my freezer.

I spent $82.10 and bought a ton of stuff below:

4 Apple Pie Lara Bars (emergency snack .. keeping these with me at all times)
12oz. carrots (Look closely at the prices. I found 3 bags of 12oz. Publix brand carrots and two of them were different prices, just packaged differently)
2 Gala Apples
6 Avocados (one of my most expensive purchases)
2 Broccoli heads with stalks, on sale (Save stalks and freeze to make veggie stock later)
1 bunch of asparagus (This will be 2-3 servings of veggies for me)
4 Kiwis
2Lbs. grassfed ground beef
6 "Greenwise" chicken breasts
2 Sweet potatoes
24 organic store-brand eggs
1 can artichoke hearts
1 can coconut milk
1 jar black sesame seeds (I love these!)
1 big container of organic salad greens (Can be used in tons of dishes)
1 bag of brussel sprouts (Haven't had them since I was little.. hoping they aren't still gross)
1 bag of baby zucchini
1 store-brand light olive oil (I'm going to make mayo with it)

I also have two whole chickens in my freezer, cauliflower, grapes, strawberries, coconut milk, blueberries, coconut oil (which I will primarily cook with), pork tenderloin (that I'll use sparingly) and organic turkey meat (in case of emergencies!) I also have 4 frozen bags of veggies in my freezer so I really shouldn't be "without" this week.

I will be posting my recipes and I'm hoping this food will last one entire week. I also have to buy extras for my kids so I spent roughly $96.00 tonight but I'm thinking things will go pretty smoothly this week and I won't have to rush out to the store for things. I will more thank likely start tomorrow (Saturday) since I have been eating very clean this week to prepare myself for things to come! :)

It's going to be exciting! Stay tuned for some WHOLEsome dishes.
