I've been food shopping today. I'd like to share what I purchased today in case any of you are interested in trying a Whole 30. Have a look and see, while you do have to eliminate some foods, there is still plenty of nutritious and delicious things to eat.
This all came from Publix, my local supermarket. I did not feel like driving out to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods today.
Two whole organic chickens (one for the freezer, one for Saturday dinner, leftovers for chicken salad)
Two 1 pound packages of organic ground turkey (one for freezer, one for breakfast hash)
One pound of grass fed, local ground beef (will make a burger salad for dinner one night and with the rest make a meatloaf to have for "emergency protein")
A package of Applegate Farms organic uncured grass fed beef hot dogs. The only one that had NO sugar added.
A pound of wild shrimp (SugarMama is coming for lunch tomorrow, making shrimp and avocado salad with lemon and garlic aioli)
Big bag of multi color mini sweet peppers (for snacks and salads)
English cucumber (for snacks and salad)
Two packages of Organic Girl romaine hearts (these are my bread and my favorite salad fixing)
Two pound package of carrots (for snacks for me and Tally)
Package of celery hearts (for chicken salad and snacks)
Package of green beans (for amandine with roast chicken)
Three pounds of sweet potatoes (two big ones for breakfast hash, two small ones for side dishes)
Five Haas avocados
Four fat little kiwi fruits
Package of fresh strawberries
Two liters of light olive oil, on sale yay (to make mayo)
Nine liters of fizzy water, assorted essences
A tin of macadamia nuts
Package of raw walnut halves
Package of organic raisins
Four packages of Twinnings green tea (on clearance for $1.49 each, to cold brew with fresh herbs)
A pack of 100 black Tetley tea bags (on clearance for $1.59, to make kombucha)
With tax the total was $138.82.
How does this compare, items and cost-wise, to your weekly shopping? I'd love to hear!
