Grocery Haul + Weekly Meal Plan {creating a grocery budget)

Posted September 4, 2014 in grocery shopping, grocery haul, meal planning and 5 more

My last grocery haul was the first one with the BF! 

Now that the BF and I have lived together for about two months, we've decided to get more organized with our finances/budgeting.

Neither of us have ever had a budget for food before, but money has been a little tighter for both of us since we moved in together. So we're tracking our spending (especially on groceries and eating out) in September, and in October we'll decide where we can tighten things up. I'll let you know how we do!

Over the weekend, we bought groceries at Hy-Vee, the farmer's market and Target. 

Here's what we bought...

What I Learned on a HyVee Health Market Tour

Posted January 29, 2015 in HyVee, healthy eating, grocery shopping and 1 more

Earlier this week I took a grocery store tour at HyVee, and I learned soooo much!

To be honest, I wasn't sure how much I would take away from the tour since I am at HyVee at least twice a week and I practically live in the Health Market. But Kaiti George, the store's dietician, shared so many fun facts. And lucky for you, she said I could share some of them with you!

I went on the tour with some of the girls from my Healthy Dinner Club group. During our Healthy Holiday Cocktail Party, we all decided that a grocery store tour would be fun. It was!

Happy Friday! I'm sooooo ready for the weekend. The BF and I don't have anything major planned. I, of course, have a long to do list full of lots of blogging and health coaching things.

Today I'm sharing our recent grocery haul, our meal plan this week and our February grocery spending! I hope my meal plans give you a little meal inspiration as you're planning your meals for next week. Sometimes it's a struggle to come up with new recipes!

Trader Joe's & Whole Foods Haul {April 2015}

Posted April 14, 2015 in Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, healthy eating and 8 more

Over the weekend, I was in Lincoln so I made my usual trip to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods!

I've mentioned this before, but I live in a small city and the nearest TJ's and WF are about two hours away. Every time the BF and I go to Lincoln or Omaha we stop to stock up on our fave items.

My goal for this shopping trip was to pick up some gluten-free items for the BF (he eliminated gluten temporarily to see if it makes him feel better and I'm joining him to be supportive) and to get some running fuel. I also picked up some of our staples (21 Seasoning Salute, apple cider vinegar, coconut products, etc.) and a few treats that I impulse purchased.

Here's what I bought...

The Best Healthy Foods to Buy at Costco

Posted October 1, 2017 in healthy eating, grocery shopping, Costco and 2 more

I'm sharing my healthy Costco shopping list! 


The nearest Costco to my house is actually about three hours away in Omaha, but the fiancé and I still have a membership. 

We end up in Omaha every couple of months, so we always make a stop at Costco. We pack a cooler and ice packs just in case we purchase cold foods, and stop at Costco before we head home. 

I love it because I can stock up on healthy foods that are typically more expensive to purchase at my local grocery stores. Costco has an amazing selection of health foods with lots of organic options. I'm totally obsessed. 

The following is a list of what I buy regularly or have bought at Costco, but there are so many more options! If you have a favorite healthy food you buy at Costco, share it in the comments so I can check it out next time I'm there.
