What’s In My Cart This Week (5/5/12)

5 05 2012

Since I want to practice what I preach (I hate when people can’t back up what they say in these blogs/articles), I’ll let you in on what I’m going to be going through this week

Remember:  never go grocery shopping hungry!  You’ll end up with the always-delicious (but always-loaded with fillers) Publix sub or some other pre-made lunch.  I plan on eating some fish tacos at a local restaurant before stepping foot into my local Publix.  Remember my rules for survival today if you’re going to do the same!

Without further ado…

    • 6-8 Chicken Breasts
    • 2 lbs. Salmon Fillets
    • Fresh Salsa (I avoid Pace/Newman’s Own because the liquid-to-veggie ratio is pretty weak)
    • Lettuce
    • Tomatoes
    • Cucumbers (2)
    • Peppers (you can usually find a tri-color three pack at your local grocery store)
    • 2 lbs. apples
    • 2 lbs. pears
    • 5 bananas (for my overnight smoothies.  Potassium has been linked to restful sleep)
    • Bag of oranges
    • Blueberries (the ultimate sweetener for my morning oatmeal)
    • 1 Whole Pineapple (for what they charge you for a pre-cut, you can hack away for half the price!)
    • Carrots (I like to get them whole, then cut them up as sticks for lunches)
    • Wild Rice or Quinoa
    • Cottage Cheese (I usually go Fat Free or 2%)
    • Carton of Egg Whites1 gallon organic skim milk (no antibiotics; one of the things I HIGHLY recommend getting organic)

I know what you’re thinking: I go through a HELL of a lot of food in a week.  In fact, truth be told, I may need to go back another time during the week to supplement the list.  Since I eat a small meal every 2-3 hours, it’s necessary to stock up on the good stuff to avoid having to hit up the vending machine or cafeteria at the hospital.

So…what’s in YOUR cart?
