Hi guys, today I’m gonna share with you something about GROCERY SHOPPING! Not just a shopping list, I’m giving you a list of products I eat every week. I do most weekly shopping at the supermarkets in town, but on Saturday it’s farmer market time! I buy lots of products in bulk, mostly veggies and fruits.
Okay, let’s do it! What do I buy every single week? Initially, it was hard to narrow down, but once I really thought about it I realized these products are in constant rotation in my house. I can use them in different ways and try to create new recipes with them. Take a look!
I think this is the first product I’m always checking on if I still have enough of it. Pretty much everyone is obsessed with avocados and I’m definitely not different 🙂 When I really struggled with my eating disorder, I always avoided avocados because of the amount of calories. Now, it’s hard to think about the last day I didn’t eat it! I love it on top of toast, in my salads, in my smoothies or I make a creamy sauce with it. It’s my green best friend!
This is a category that I rotate through, and it’s something I always have on hand. I eat some form of nuts every day, whether it’s on my smoothie bowls, in my oatmeal, as a snack, in dressing, in my salads, etc. Nuts contain lots of healthy fats and make you feel full for so long. My favorite nuts are pecans and almonds, and I eat them like almost every day. You know what they say: ‘a handful of nuts a day, keeps the doctor away!’
Oatmeal, my all time favorite breakfast! I always buy big packages of oats for a couple of weeks. I don’t eat it everyday, but definitely every week. I make my old-fashioned porridge with it, but also a lot for my banana bread and pancakes lately! I just blend it in the processor to make it more like flour, perfect as a base for your bakings! And… oats are so cheap! A package of 500 grams is just 50 (euro)cents in Holland.
My favorite fruit! For a little (natural) sweetness, bananas are my go to. I usually use them on top of my oatmeal, as the main ingredient for my banana bread or pancakes, but I also love them as a quick snack before a workout. My favorite combo is with peanut butter, especially on toast. You can wake me for that! So simple and so delicious!
5. Plantbased yogurt/milk
So far we’ve covered fruits, carbs, and healthy fats, time for vegan protein now! I always use plantbased yogurts and milk, even if I’m not completely vegan. Sometimes I’ll pick up almond milk , other times it will be oat- or soy milk. I like to rotate so that I can keep things interesting and not focus too heavily on one specific ingredient.
6. Sweet potato
My love for sweet potatoes runs deep. They’re probably one of my all-time favorite foods and one I absolutely eat weekly. Yes, even in the summer. Sweet potatoes are incredibly good for you, they’re versatile and so delicious. I usually roast them in the oven and make fries, but I also add them in soups, curries, hummus and I even had it for breakfast yesterday! A must-try!
Yes, I’m definitely a carrot girl!! I love the sweet taste and bite. Mostly I eat them as a snack with hummus but I also love to roast little slices in the oven, or in soups and curries. I buy at least 1 kilogram every week and I never have to through something away. Definitely one of my favorite veggies!
