Grocery Store Buys

The dreaded grocery store list. Maybe you enjoy browsing the aisles, or maybe it's simply something you can't wait to check off your to-do list. Do you visit once a week or go multiple times? Last week I was in need of many things after coming back from vacation. I usually go to two stores, my local grocery store and Whole Foods. I try and buy most of what I need at the local store and go to Whole Foods for specialty items such as fish, meat, some fruits and bread, Here is a look at some of what I bought last week at Whole Foods. I had already completed my local store run before I snapped these pictures. I also broke the groceries down into categories. Enjoy! 

Fruit

Here is some fruit. The top right (in the bag) are goji berries. We love them in this household. Topped on yogurt, in oatmeal or just a snack they are chewy and delicious. They are high in fiber and a high-antioxidant.food.

Veggies

Here is my veggie haul, light from the market as I buy most veggies over the summer from our local farm stand that is about 2 miles down the road. Tomatoes from my garden, technically speaking avocados are a fruit but I would move them to the healthy fat category. I bought peppers, cucumber and corn from the farm stand.

Dairy

Ah dairy, I don't think I could live without it. I go back and forth from buying whole milk to 1-2% and I usually almost always buy 2% yogurt. Sometimes I buy almond milk, it depends on what I am making or in the mood for.

Protein

I also bought turkey meat that was cooked before taking this picture. I like buying the occasional "cold cuts" from Applegate for Robert's lunch. This roasted chicken provided us a night of dinner and I made chicken salad with the leftovers. When I can't make my own chicken noodle soup, I love the flavor of this one. I can't forget eggs, I bought at the local market, a must in this house!

Healthy Fats

I always have tons of nuts in the house, along with many nut butters. We were out of cashews, I like the roasted unsalted kind. Chia Seeds, great in smoothies, granola, and yogurt!
