What’s in My Grocery Bags (#6) + Weekly Meal Plan

in Other

It has been a little while since I have shared my grocery haul with y’all.  So, I deem today the day to talk about all things grocery-related.  Be sure to stick around until the end to see what is on my meal plan for the week, too!  My meal planning strategy is changing a bit, but it is still filled with plenty of delicious recipes.

Grocery Bags-2What’s in My Grocery Bags (#6)

Groceries Produce-2Produce picture #1: tons of organic zucchini, a spaghetti squash, a yellow onion, organic sweet potatoes, organic Roma tomatoes, organic mushrooms, and organic whole carrots.

Groceries Produce 2-2More produce: organic apples, two heads of organic broccoli, organic kale, cilantro, and shredded brussel sprouts.

Groceries Refrigerator-2More produce and randoms: organic bell peppers, a fresh salmon filet (yes, $7.99 for one!), fresh raspberries, and Field Roast vegan Chao cheese slices.  I had not originally planned on buying the cheese, but it was on sale and I am dying to try this new-to-me flavor for grilled cheeses!

Groceries Perishables-2Some fridge essentials: organic unsweetened coconut milk, mild yellow miso, 100% cranberry juice, organic brown eggs, organic corn tortillas, and unsweetened vanilla rice milk.  The rice milk is not a normal purchase of mine, but it was on sale for $2.00 and I had a $2.00 off coupon… so free!  I have since tried it and I love it.  It very well may become a new staple of mine.

Groceries Frozen-2Now to the freezer essentials: organic chopped spinach, organic peas, organic corn, and two packages of acai packs.  I did not have intentions of buying the acai packs, but they were also on sale.  I cannot say no to $1.50 off of the regular price, so I bought two!

Groceries Pantry-2I added a few items to my pantry: organic black refried beans, organic black beans, organic split pea soup, organic dried parsley, albacore tuna, and taco seasoning.  TJ’s taco seasoning is my favorite.  It contains zero junky ingredients!

groceriesAnd finally, my Sam’s Club purchases: ton of fresh organic spinach and a bunch of bananas.  I buy these every single week for my smoothies.

Grocery Haul-2Yes, this is all for me.  As I said on Instagram: #foodieproblems.  Everything in my grocery bags came in at around $100.  This is about $15 more than I normally spend, but I stocked up on several sale items that I had not originally planned on purchasing.  As a result, it was a rather pricey week!  I love sales, but I hate when they come all at once!

And now… onto the meal plan for this coming week.  For the heads up, these groceries were from last weekend.  That would explain why the grocery bags and the meals below don’t exactly seem to match up!  One of these days I will be better about actually sharing grocery pictures that coincide with the meal plan 😉

Weekly Meal Plan: Week of March 8, 2015:

Meal 1: Plantain Black Bean BBQ Wraps <– I may modify these slightly, depending on whether or not I can find plantains
Meal 2: Lentil and Cabbage Casserole <– This is great to make when you want lots of leftovers!
Meal 3: Bean and Lentil Taquitos (I may post the recipe depending on how they turn out)
Meal 4: Cauliflower and Corn Tacos
Meal 5: Buffalo Tofu Wings
Meal 6: Veggie Quesadilla
Meal 7: Butternut Black Bean Burgers

I mentioned on Friday that I am challenging myself to start eating more intuitively.  As a result, I am planning on meals for the week, but am not selecting which nights I will make them.  Instead, I want to listen to what my body is craving.  I also plan to make at least 2 servings of all of the above meals in order to have plenty of leftovers for lunches.  Wish me luck on my new approach to meal planning!
What is on your meal plan this week?

      I am so glad that I finally tried and learned to cook salmon. It is seriously one of my favorite things ever right now. I used that particular filet to make a BBQ salmon filet and it was SO good!

      I try to buy as much color as possible... it's almost like a fun goal to set for yourself!
  • Taryn March 9, 2015, 10:15 am
    YUM!!! Is this type of haul somewhat typical for a week for one person? How many meals, on average, do you eat out per week?
    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 9, 2015, 2:19 pm
      Yes, this is quite typical for me (and just me). What can I say, I eat a lot! I also credit some of this to being a food blogger and cooking A LOT. I generally out eat out about once per week (sometimes not at all).
      • Taryn March 9, 2015, 2:29 pm
        Awesome--I definitely need to get more creative with the veggies... I just never know what to do with them besides steaming them :/ your recipes are giving me ideas though, thank you!
        • ClnEatingVegGrl March 9, 2015, 3:54 pm
          Thanks Taryn! Trust me, there are plenty of veggies popping up in almost ALL of my recipes!! :)
  • BreAnna March 20, 2015, 4:29 pm
    I also blog about my grocery hauls - so fun to see what others are buying! I have a tight $70 weekly food budget for two, but definitely stock up when there are sales. It's worth it in the long run, right?! :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 22, 2015, 10:14 am
      It is SO worth it!! I love a good sale :) Also, props to you for only spending $70 for 2 per week. I need to get better at lowering my bills!
