Busy weeks call for prepping! Today I made a trip to the grocery to get my food for the next two weeks. Although some weeks I travel to Whole Foods 2-3 times, the next two weeks I won’t make it back there.
Here’s what I bought and what I’ll use it for:
Coconut milk: I love it in my smoothies and in my coffee. It’s a great source of healthy fats.
Frozen Berry Medley & Frozen Blueberries: These are perfect for smoothies, and I like eating the frozen blueberries plain. They taste like popsicles!
Frozen Cut Green Beans: I haven’t experimented with these yet but will probably steam them.
Frozen & Fresh Broccoli: I steam my frozen broccoli in the microwave and cook my fresh broccoli in the oven. Broccoli is my favorite!
Frozen Cauliflower: I steam these in the microwave or on the stove. Then I mash them, top with some butter, salt and pepper. Recipe here.
Ham: I love ham in my eggs for breakfast.
Apples: Perfect study snack.
Avocados: Healthy fats! Love them for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
Sweet Potatoes: I make my sweet potatoes in the microwave (6 minutes on high in a bowl of water). Then I top them with some butter and cinnamon. Recipe here.
Kombucha: Kombucha is the perfect probiotic drink.
Eggs: Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner! And they’re fairly cheap.
Cold-Brew Coffee: Trying this out for the first time, I’ve read great reviews about it.
Bananas: Snack or for smoothies
Cashews & Pistachios: Nuts are perfect for snacking while studying. If I get nut butter I always eat it too quickly; real nuts last me longer!
Lara Bars: Fruit and nut bars. Great emergency snacks. I keep them in my backpack or purse.
Hope that helped! I also eat meat of course. I try to buy it on sale, so I have some in my freezer and take it out. This week I’ll be eating fish, chicken, and some pork loin.
