week 2: grocery haul

today starts week 2 and i have a better idea of what i should be eating and what fills me up. but im also getting bored with eating the same meats and veggies all the time (i love fruit, i could never get bored with it) so i decided to add in some new veggies this week, a few different fruits and i finally got me some almonds. after making this weeks meal plan i made the grocery list and off i went. 

at first i was afraid that all these new things would cost me lots of money. people always say eating healthy is expensive, but i only spent a little more than i usually do in a shopping trip. but im also not eating out or picking up treats, so it really comes out to be cheaper.

i shop at the local krogers. we dont have a whole foods, or trader joes, or any fancy healthy stores, so i just make do. heres what i bought:

brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, carrots, red and yellow peppers, and spaghetti squash. lots of color :)

raspberries, bananas, apples, and avocado

ground pork, steaks, pork chops, lean ground beef, and eggs

passion fruit tea, light tasting olive oil (for homemade mayo) and almonds

my meal plan for this week:
monday: spaghetti w/ spaghetti squash
tuesday: steak, sweet potatoes, and green beans
wednesday: chicken tenders, brussel sprouts,carrots
thursday: hoping for leftovers (wont be home to cook)
friday: stuffed peppers
saturday: grilled chicken, sweet potatoes, and broccoli

im hoping this livens up my meals for this week so i can keep going on this thing without being extremely bored with the food. ill be half way thru after this week :)
