Hello again! I’m quite liking this series and hope you are too. It’s nice because it’s intentional. It makes me slow down and take stock of what I’ve bought and plan to do in the coming week. A good reflection process, and it’s allowed me to narrow in on what doesn’t really need to be bought (to save on the budget). Bye hummus, lemons, and limes!
Albert Heijn and Jumbo
Sorry, got these two mixed up since I did the shopping at the same time! But I would say: 80% from Jumbo and 20% from Albert Heijn.
Produce: bananas, ginger, frozen fruit (mango, pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, and cherries), spinach, apples, zuchini, and passion fruit.
Dry goods: chia seeds, nuts, lentils, pasta, granola, buckwheat flour, oatmeal, maple syrup, rice, peanut butter, and pasta sauce,
Other: tempeh (what category does this go in?!)
This was a good week! I only spent 59 euros here even though I felt like I stocked up on a lot.
If you checked out my post from yesterday, you know it was a beautiful day at the Farmer’s Market! I swear, not much else makes me happier than a sunny spring Saturday.
I picked up: beets, broccoli. cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes.
All for just 15 euros! For organic, local produce, I consider that awesome.
That means I spent 74 euros, equaling 37 euros for each of us. I’m happy with that! We each may spend another 5 euros later in the week picking up more milk or pasta sauce, but we’ll see.
Total creature of habit…
Breakfast: banana + cacao oatmeal with hemp + pumpkin + chia seeds, blueberries + raspberries, and peanut butter.
Lunch: Smoothie bowl + granola.
Dinner: (like last week) a variety of grains + a veggie. Keeps things super simple and affordable! If pasta, we just use pasta sauce. If rice or quinoa, I mix in fresh ginger and turmeric. And of course, tempeh!
Snacks: sweet potato fries, nuts, apples, and passion fruit.
Have a wonderful Sunday, and let me know if you have any questions!
