A Whole 30 Grocery Haul {What’s Inside My Grocery Bags #10} + Weekly Meal Plan

in Other

It has been a little while since one of these posts has popped up here in CEVG girl land, hasn’t it?  Over a month, to be exact!  Things are a bit different this time around, though.  This grocery haul post is going to be all about the Whole 30-compliant ingredients I purchased this weekend.  If you ever wondered what types of food can be eaten on the Whole 30, you are about to find out.

Let’s take a peek inside of my grocery bags for the week <– I’m a poet and I know it!

A Whole 30 Grocery Haul {What’s Inside My Grocery Bags #10}

groceries produceGenerally, my grocery bags are at least halfway filled with produce.  This weekend I picked up tons of organic apples, organic bell peppers, carrots, organic radishes, and a red onion.

groceries produce 2I also purchased bananas, organic baby spring mix, a lemon, organic celery, broccoli slaw, tons of sweet potatoes, and an organic cucumber.  The more fruits and veggies the better, right?

meat and eggsMy perishable items included organic cage-free eggs, organic free-range chicken thighs, bacon, and chorizo sausages.  For those looking for a Whole 30-compliant bacon, I found this one at Whole Foods!

groceries canned goodsAnd finally, what I like to call my “miscellaneous” items: individual containers of organic chicken broth (because sometimes you don’t need a whole carton), organic coconut milk, wild-caught canned tuna, a new-to-me Larabar, organic yellow mustard, pink Himalayan sea salt, and individual guacamole packs <– currently obsessed.

Now let’s see how I am putting the majority of these groceries to use.  I will be on days 14 through 19 of the Whole 30, so everything that I am cooking up will be made with my Whole 30-compliant ingredients.

Weekly Meal Plan: July 19-24

Dinner #1: Dijon Tuna Salad + guacamole + plantain chips
Dinner #2: Trader Joe’s chile lime chicken burger + baked sweet potato + sautéed greens in coconut oil
Dinner #3: Melissa’s Chicken Hash (from the Whole 30 cookbook <– affiliate link)
Dinner #4: Salad with veggies, hardboiled eggs, and “dump” ranch
Dinner #5: BLT lettuce cups with “dump” ranch + veggies
Dinner #6: Chorizo and peppers with sweet potato “dirty rice” <– if I love this one, I’ll share it in a future Friday Foodie Favorites post

I’ll be eating any leftovers that I have for lunches during the week.  I like to cook once and eat at least two times!

I hope everyone has a great rest of their weekend.  I am off to go wedding dress shopping with my mama.  Wish us luck!

Have you found any new products at the grocery store that you recommend?

    Hi When did you Stop being a vegetarian and why ? Thanks Karen

      I think I first ate seafood in December and then other meat in March. I have had a lot of unexplained health issues, for which I am trying diet eliminations right now. Since I have eliminated all grains, legumes, and almost all dairy, I made the difficult choice to add meat back in.

    I know, when I go to the store, most of what I buy is produce! But that's a good thing ;)

    I love that you include a meal plan- I tend to have some ideas in my mind before going grocery shopping, but I bet an actual meal plan would help me budget better. Kate recently posted...Food Truck Friday and a LuauMy Profile

      Meal plans definitely help with budgetting. When I go into the grocery store with a list for my plan, I generally stick to it!

      It took me hunting around the bacon section for about 5 minutes, but I FINALLY noticed the "Paleo" sticker ;)

    Hmm... Well, we're almost out of everything, so I guess the meal plan is making do with what we have till we have a chance to go shopping. :) Your grocery haul looks good. Are you finding the Whole 30 pretty doable? Emily recently posted...Learning to Listen to My BodyMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl July 20, 2015, 8:41 pm
      The Whole 30 is DEFINITELY doable... though it would not be if you were traveling, etc. because eating out is VERY tough!
  • Gina July 21, 2015, 11:12 pm
