I also thought it'd be fun to share my weekly shopping list. It obviously changes a bit each week depending on what recipes I am planning on making and what staple ingredients I am running low on.

At the beginning of each week I meal plan - breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have my go-to recipes but I also usually try to throw in at least one new recipe a week. During the week we usually eat fish 3 times, lean meat 2 times, the rest is vegetarian. We split up the meat between lunch and dinner and usually eat at least one green salad and one green smoothie a day. I also plan out 4 snacks per day. My snacks usually include - smoothie/juice, hard boiled egg, nuts and dried fruit, cut veggies, pita chips, etc.

My weekly grocery bill comes to about $80-100. I shop mostly organic and from my local farmer's market.

A little math.
$100 / 2 people = $50/person
$50 / 7 days = $7.14/day
7 days / 7 meals (3 meals and 4 snacks) = $1.02/meal-snack

Thanks to Martha Stewart I have a nice shopping list sheet that I keep on my fridge and update throughout the week when I run out of staple items, then when I meal plan I fill in the rest of what I need.

Weekly Items:

PRODUCE
apples (2 fuji and 3 green), bananas (2), oranges (2), lemons (4), limes (2), berries, mango, pear, spinach, lettuce (romain/spring mix), kale, cucumbers (3), cherry tomatoes, peppers (2), onion, garlic, carrots, broccoli, parsley, avocado (2), cilantro , celery, radish, yams, potatoes


REFRIGERATED
coconut milk, omega-3 eggs, plain greek yogurt

FROZEN
vegetables (spinach, peas and carrots), fruit (berries, pineapple)

Staples (Always Have on Hand - Buy When Needed):

MEAT & FISH
salmon, tilapia, ground turkey, chicken

REFRIGERATED
unsalted butter, mustard, mayo, relish, tapatio, salad dressing, greek yogurt dip, hummus

DRY GOODS
sunflower butter, apple cider vinegar, no salt pasta sauce, no salt salsa, favorite snacks (chips/crackers/cookies), nuts (almonds, walnuts), spices, coconut, flax seed, chia seed, raisins, dried cranberries, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, baking ingredients, oats, EVOO, coconut oil

GRAINS

CANNED
no salt black beans, no salt tuna fish



BAKED GOODS

I prepare as much of my food as I can on Mondays - I chop up the veggies and prepare anything I possibly can that can be made ahead of time. That way during the week I have a lot less preparation time which means - I actually eat what I have planned.


Happy meal planning and grocery shopping!

  1. I'm loving this new addition to your blog, Bree. All of it is very informative and balanced. I started meal planning this year (dinners), but in an effort to lose weight and be healthier I realize that I need to meal plan my breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I JUST started doing clean/green/lean eating this week, trying to change my "lifestyle" which involved SO much shopping (for the first time around, at least) and a whole mess of meal prep, but I am so excited to get into it! I'm super excited to see your future posts! :)

  4. Trampoline is the best source for children to keep them inside the house and as well as for adults too. Trampoline is made up of strong elastic fabric which is stretched over steel using many coiled springs. There are many types of trampolines available in the market like round trampoline, rectangular trampoline.
