The best part about moving is the grocery shopping. Maybe it’s just me, but there is something extremely satisfying about stocking up an empty fridge. Today, I went to Trader Joe’s to pick up a few items. My grocery trips are spread all over the place. I buy certain foods at certain stores.
When I’m grocery shopping, I think about the meals I am going to be making that week. I haven’t been on the cooking kick in awhile, but now that I’m settled, I plan on kicking it up. My blog will appreciate it too. It’s been a little hungry lately. Plus, cooking is so much healthier that eating at restaurants all the time.
TJ’s sells “Just Chicken”. It’s one of my favorite items because it’s quick and diverse. You can top salads, rice, tacos, soups, or wraps with it. I like to food prep my chicken, but when I don’t have time, it’s nice to just go in and buy this.
I’m a juice sipper. Say what? Sometimes I get the craving to take a big gulp of juice. Some people do it with milk. I like to keep juices in my fridge and Trader Joe’s has the best! I’m excited to have my juicer back in my life so I can juice in the mornings.
You all know how much I love my salads, but my salads would be nothing without dressing. I like the Red Wine & Olive Oil Vinaigrette. It’s sweet, salty, and savory. Today I tossed it with Argula leaves and fresh fruit.
I love roasting or grilling colored carrots and cannot wait to make them tonight!
Orange carrots are good for your eyes, purple carrots are heart disease preventers, red carrots lower risk of cancer, yellow carrots are good for your eye health and lower your risk for cancer, white carrots promote healthy digestion.
So…you better eat those carrots!
I’m not a HUGE bread eater, but my dad is coming to town and would die without his morning slice of peanut butter bread. I will most likely eat it with hummus, turkey, and veggies.
Sometimes, I’m not in the mood for Keurig coffee. Call me crazy, or a coffee snob, but all coffee tastes different. Sometimes I like the drip coffee and Trader Joe’s is the place to buy.
For my coffee, I like to add a splash of vanilla creamer and almond milk.
I’ve been in the mood for kale chips, so I bought some fresh kale to make them this week. Here is my recipe for kale chips.
I LOVE COUSCOUS. I plan on making a chicken caesar couscous salad this week.
Did you see ginger snap cookies in my grocery cart?……..me either…..keep scrolling.
My dad is a potato chip man, so I picked him up a little bag of the kettle cooked potato chips.
Later, I’m running to Whole Foods to get my meats and then my parents should be arriving!
