Grocery List Basics

I thought I’d share my typical grocery list. I always love to see what’s in other people’s carts…maybe I’m just nosy though 🙂

I usually re-stock produce weekly, and then fill in the meat, eggs, etc. when needed. I don’t really follow any type of “diet” per-se, but I’d say I eat mostly “clean” [I hate that word], and then fill in with some fun foods…which is basically the definition of flexible dieting according to me. For example, you can see some sour gummy worms in this photo.


flank steak
lean beef stew meat (I use this for stir fry)
tuna (I like the tuna packets)
egg whites
chicken breasts
Ground turkey
lunch meat

almond milk
cottage cheese
sliced Tillamook cheese (sandwiches, omelets)

frozen berries
red peppers
frozen edamame
romaine lettuce
little red potatoes

english muffins
cream of rice
Kodiak pancake mix
rolls for hubby’s sandwiches
garlic quinoa/brown rice (seen here)

Arctic Zero/Halo Top (gotta have my night time snack!!)
olive oil/balsamic
peanut butter

My other fave toppings/condiments can be found in this post.

Produce varies depending on the time of year. In the winter I eat more steamed broccoli, roasted veggies, and apples. Now, I’m eating more salads, melon, berries, etc. Shopping in season = tastier and cheaper produce.

With this list  I’ll typically make:
Dinners- stir fry, fajitas made with grilled flank with grilled onions/peppers, turkey burgers, some type of large salad with grilled steak or chicken, and we also usually will do breakfast for dinner once a week.
sides- green salad, roasted potatoes/onions, quinoa/brown rice
lunches- sandwiches, tuna salad, leftovers
snacks-cottage cheese + fruit, apples + pb/rice cake w/pb, boiled eggs, popcorn, arctic zero
breakfasts- protein pancakes, omelets, breakfast sandwich

I split most of my grocery shopping between Costco and Sprouts, and fill in a tiny bit at the regular grocery (tuna, soy sauce, etc)

What are your favorite weekly meals? Does my list look much different than yours?
