Hi everyone! I hope your all enjoying your weekend so far! I have a lot of homework and studying to do so I have a busy weekend ahead of me. What are your weekend plans?
I haven't been feeling to great the last couple of days and got a really bad head and stomach ache yesterday. I went to bed early last night with hopes of feeling better this morning, but still wasn’t feeling all that good. I think it might be because I haven't been drinking enough water lately, and I’m a little stressed out because of school.
Since my eats haven't been the least bit exciting, I decided to write a post about my kitchen staples today instead.
My mom goes shopping for groceries about twice a week. We always get fresh fruit, veggies, dairy products, bread etc. Sometimes, I run out of my must-have food items (Cereal, Yogurt, Fruits, Bread etc.) during the week so I go to the grocery store to get them…but somehow I always leave with more than I wanted! :)
These are my kitchen staples! I like to have these food items on hand because I can make so many different meals with them. (A lot of these items are also kitchen staples for my mom.) We buy these items almost every week:
- Plain Low Fat Yogurt
- Alpro Soya Light
- Cottage Cheese
- Babybel Light
- Deli Meat: Turkey Breast
- Frozen Raspberries
- Baby Carrots
And these are some extra things I like to have on hand, too:
- Designer Whey All Natural Protein Powder
- Crunchy Peanut Butter
- Snack Bars
- Sweetener (Stevia in the Raw)
- Instant Chicken Noodle Soup (Short ingredients list. Perfect for a sick day!)
- Nuts: Almonds, Cashews, Peanuts, Walnuts, Pistachios
What are your must-have food items? How often do you go grocery shopping? Are there any special items you like to keep on hand but your family doesn’t?
