Simplify Grocery Shopping & Live Better!
#1 Question I am asked:
Budget & Basic Shopping List?
How do I feed my family REAL food & stay within a budget?
I believe that packaged & “convenience” items are a money waster. I have found huge savings in skipping these types of products. There are plenty of natural options that are just as convenient! 🙌
I am so accustomed to purchasing the same basic items each week (as needed) – I grab my basics & then scout out the meat, produce & frozen produce for SALES! This gives me the chance to experiment with a variety of fruits and vegetables – in season.
My basics that I keep at home:
Lean meat/Fish(watch the sales.)
When the price is good, purchase extra to freeze.
Almond milk- (no carrageenan added)
Nuts (watch the sales!) All-natural nut butters,
Greek all natural yogurt,
Frozen fruit/berries-an awesome treat!
A fresh herb or two to add flavor to everything!
Coconut oil, avocado oil, & olive oil
Apple cider vinegar,
Brown Rice, Quinoa, Beans,
Natural Popping Corn(to air pop),
Natural stevia, raw honey, and pure maple
Then I head over to the produce section where the majority of my groceries are found.
In the produce section, buy according to the SALES -usually in-season
Try new things!
Items such as: apples, carrots, bananas, lemons, celery, mushrooms, lettuces, spinach, avocados, sweet potatoes, peppers, cucumber, onions & zucchini, are usually inexpensive & always purchased weekly.
I’m sure that I have left a few things out.
This list is just a starting point.
Begin where you can. Do a little better each week.
Realize that by taking small actions toward this type of shopping, you will be a pro in a year from now!
I believe my life is more simplistic when I stick to this basic outline & that I actually SAVE money.
(Those processed items, and fast food trips add up! 😊
