This Week’s Groceries

We’re eating healthy this week – and for under $100 for five hungry people.  Lots of people ask me for specifics of what we eat, where I buy it, and how much it costs.  Here’s a brief breakdown of my plan for the week.

Monday: Summer vegetable curry with Raita

Tuesday: Grilled salmon with garlic-lime butter, collards with bacon

Wednesday: Black beans with brown rice and toppings of tomatoes, cilantro, cheddar, spinach

Thursday: Grilled chicken with lemon & oregano dressing, salad

Friday: Yaki soba, a Japanese-style stir fry

Weekend: Burgers, tomato salad from garden & leftovers

And here’s how the grocery list & receipt went:

I already had many staples and pantry items like eggs, oatmeal, cereal,  & spices, and I stocked up on earlier sales for meats.  Notice, this week pork was on sale so I grabbed some  for next week.   I generally bake most of our bread. Lunches are often leftovers.

So, if you live in the area, there you have it!  You can run out to Shoprite & pick up those same items & eat lots of fresh summer fruits & veggies this week.
