Everyone wants a done for you healthy meal shopping list.
Let’s be real. I would love to have the time and patience to form menu plans each week and create a shopping list of ingredients I need for those planned meals, but that very rarely happens. Each week, I make sure I pick foods from each category below. Then, with having a kitchen stocked with these staples, I can usually throw meals together pretty fast with not much thinking involved.
I plan what type of protein, vegetable/green, and starch I am going to have the next day the night before and either soak grains/beans/nuts overnight or pull out meat from the freezer. Looking at what I have, I either look for recipes fast with what I have out, or keep it super simple and put a delicious meal together using spices, and healthy sauces. How to throw a simple, delicious meal together, coming soon!
I love this list to have each week, it keeps me rotating and keeps variety in my proteins/veggies/starches/herbs. I keep each category in mind and make sure I get a couple of items from each section for meals for the entire week.
