Hello my friends!
I hope you are all doing well.
Starting a new semester doesn’t simply mean the beginning of new courses, but also getting ready to get back on track with the daily routines. Speaking of a new semester, I hope you all had a great start of semester whether you are in highschool or college. And to my college students out there, I hope you had great professors for this semester and got a flexible schedule (and not as much courses as I do).
If you read my previous blog posts you would know that I upped my meal prepping game in 2018. It is now a big part of my daily routine and it has been a life saver, honestly. Not only was I able to stay healthy, but I also spent less money on buying stuff that I just end up throwing away. Meal prepping pushes you to look for quick and simple recipes that you can easily make. Of course by cooking more often, you get to experiment with different vegetables and know what works better for you. With that being said, grocery shopping becomes an important step.
I personally used to find the grocery shopping “experience” stressful and confusing. I would think that I was in Top chef and that I would cook the most amazing meals. That sudden motivation, would last about one day; can you relate to this? . As I slowly started my Meal prep journey, I quickly realized that a grocery list would be necessary. Many trips to LIDL later, I finally was able to know exactly what I needed to look for when grocery shopping.
I developed this go-to grocery list that I’ve been using for months now. It contains all the things that I use on a daily basis whether to cook a big meal or to simply snack. I know that some of the items on the list might change, but for the most part it’s what I always find myself using.
I hope that today’s post will encourage you to make a list of your own and give you some inspiration for new items to get at the store!
I hope you enjoyed this post.
Now it’s your turn: What is your favourite part about grocery shopping?
