Hey there! Having a good weekend? I am. Weather isn’t heat, rain/sleet = not fun, but otherwise it has been good!
On Saturday morning I went to yoga at Lululemon, went to a store closing sale at Lucy and got some cute stuff with my mom, traded back cars with my dad, and then later in the day had dinner at Maggiano’s and saw American Sniper with him too. He had my car because he dropped his at Toyota to get some work done on it Friday and then took mine up to his work and left it next door at the car place to have roof racks put on top! Now I can transport my paddle board! That is what I asked for for my birthday/Christmas this year, very practical but necessary!
I did all the grocery shopping on Friday since I had a busy Saturday all planned. After I picked his car up at Toyota I went to both Sam’s Club and Trader Joe’s, while my mom finished up work at home. We also went to Wegman’s Thurday night and got a ton of stuff too! So this is what is on the agenda for the week.
Breakfasts: fruit bowls with toppings, smoothies (pumpkin/banana or berry/banana), greek yogurt with fruit/granola plus plantains and nut butter/trail mix (eaten every morning basically)
Lunches: eggs with veggies, leftovers, chipotle on 1/26 for sofritas (then free burrito with receipt!)
Snacks: popcorn, trail mix, carrots and hummus, protein/snack bars
Salad with fish and extra veggies/leftovers
Vegetable Tagine with poaches eggs and herbs (my mom got this from the WSJ a couple weeks ago and we just picked up all the ingredients to make it!)
Tumeric paleo wrap with spinach, beyond meat, and hummus & extra veggies

Dariy- Milk, greek yogurt (lemon and some chobani oats), Silk Chocolate Milk (dairy like? but not actually)
Other- hummus (spicy chipotle, lemon Dill), Quaker Oatmeal Squares (cinnamon), Power O’s (chocolate), coffee, trash bags, dark chocolate chips, Gardein Teriyaki strips, kale/edamame dumpling and veggie gyoza from the sushi bar
A lot of food, huh? Not all of it is perishable and we eat a lot of fresh fruits and veggies during the week so we aren’t concerned about anything going bad. We tend to stock up on some items so next week should be lighter and just be more fruits and veggies at Sam’s club and maybe a trip to Safeway or Trader Joe’s again.
Anyone else switch between a bunch of different grocery stores? we go to Sam’s Club, Trader Joes, Wegman’s, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and Safeway but usually only 2 of those a week/weekend depending on what we need.
