Prepping for the Week

Every Friday (or most weeks) I head to Kroger to pick up supplies for the week.  We go through a lot of produce in the house, so I stock up.  This week we have a few new things in the rotation, including the granola packs pictured above.  Not pictured are a lot of the Josh-foods... breads, meats, cheese, etc.  I believe the total for the grocery bill this week was around $130.  I am always trying to stay under 100, but I never seem to get there.

This week will be lots of salads, maybe some stir fry bok choy, and fruits/sandwiches.  I used to meal plan and buy groceries per that, but Josh isn't always a fan, and it's much easier for me to just throw together some quinoa and kale and call it a night.  I just try to make sure we have grains and fresh fruits and vegetables, and we seem to easily make dinner out of that.

Yesterday I baked some panko crusted tofu (which is just about gone) and several chicken breasts for Josh. I have some tempeh stashed away to top salads and a lot of cooked quinoa.

Here's what our pantry looks like at the moment.  The soda's are for alcohol purposes, and it's my goal to not touch them.  I usually just have seltzer water.  We have a lot of bulk nuts and grains and some quick foods.  I should probably spend some time cleaning the pantry out.

Over the next week and into the future, I will be snapping shots of everything I'm eating.  One of my biggest problems is snacking while cooking, etc.  I never record these calories, and I think it will make a big difference.  So, starting tomorrow, if it's not in the photo, I shouldn't be eating it.

I'm off to go climb a mountain and have my Sunday newspaper/pizza afternoon with Josh.  

How much do you typically spend on groceries a week?  Got any tips for a veggie/meat house to cut their grocery bill down?

  1. The Seiko Company is one company that has been working in the replica watches sale industry for decades. With an experience of around 130 years, they are producing precious timepieces that have no parallels. rolex replica sale are considered among the best-quality watches in the world. However, the popularity of a company and the increased customers can lead to unscrupulous people coming up and selling their replica watches sale with the name of the original ones. So, how can you identify the replica watches uk and pick out the original, authentic ones out of the fake ones. If you plan to make a purchase of a replica watches sale online, then you must purchase it from the rolex replica. This is the most secure site, which is going to help you identify a fake product in case you are cheated by someone.


I'd love to hear from you!
