Grocery shopping is an olympic event over here, and I’m pretty confident meal-planning is equally annoying in everyone else’s house. I’m not a big planner in general (shocker), but when it comes to food shopping, I’m pretty much the boss. I always have a list and I
always usually stick with it. :-]
mixed greens for salad
organic/grass fed/hormone free bison or beef
ditto for the chicken
fresh tuna (but even the canned stuff is good in sandwiches, spreads, on top of salads, etc.)
organic 2% milk (for coffee/cooking only)
sheep’s milk cheese
goat’s milk yogurt
edamame in the shell
a few Amy’s meals… to fall back on for lazy mornings when I wake up 15 minutes before having to leave and have no time for making lunch :]

we like these:
This lends itself to plenty of supah fast meals, which are the usual fare in my house. No fancy schtuff here until the weekend. Here’s some of the typical ones:
Breakfasts: eggs + fruit; oatmeal with protein powder + almond butter; pomegranate (these things are beastly huge) and a lightly sweetened latte.
Lunches: little pasta + small salad; big salad with half a chicken breast; Amy’s meal + 1/2 avocado.
Dinners: pasta + broccoli; burgers + salad; omelettes + kale.
May not be very inventive, but it’s perfect for weeks full of overtime, kitchen laziness, wanting to eat healthy and not wanting to spend money eating out 5x a week.
Keep an eye out – sometime next week will be the FIRST giveaway! I’ll give you a hint: it’s fitness related an you can probably wear it. EEEE, excited! 😀
