My Grocery Shopping Staples

8.21.18

Yesterday I shared a poll on my Instagram stories on which topic to write my next blog post about! You guys chose “My favorite pantry items” so here ya go— Below is a list of my favorite brands, products, go-to grocery items, and staples in my pantry!

I do most of my grocery shopping every week at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Milk and Eggs (online grocery delivery). I used to LOVE grocery shopping (my sisters used to hate going with me because I would take forever trying to find my favorite food products and looking at all the labels). Since I  started using Milk and Eggs, I don’t really enjoy going to the grocery store anymore. It’s just so much more convenient to have my favorite products show up at my doorstep! I still love finding new products at Trader Joe’s and going to Whole Foods for my favorite turkey and veggie wrap or the hot foods bar, but honestly I rather just sit in the comfort of my own home and order groceries!

Meal Prep:

Although I no longer work in the hospital and have to prepare for 12 hour nursing shifts, I still like to prep a few things on Sunday evenings to make my week a little easier!

  • Grilled Chicken– chicken cooked on the grill with Primal Palate’s BBQ seasoning- that’s it!! It’s SO good and easy!

 

  • Roasted Sweet Potatoes– I actually have a blog post on how I roast my sweet potatoes. CLICK HERE to check it out! 

 

  • Banana Bread Overnight Oats– I usually prep a couple batches to get me through a few weekday mornings! Here’s the recipe I usually use! 

 

  • Cinnamon Bun Protein Waffles– I usually prep a few waffles to have during the week as well. Sometimes I’ll even have them for lunch or I’ll freeze them to have in the future. Check out my go-to protein waffle recipe

Happy Shopping!
