**This is how I make a list EVERY week!! I find a new recipe or two and then go through my pantry (10 minutes) to see what I need.. For the 2 new recipes I am going to make, I found that I have A LOT of the recipes in my pantry already! So when you read the recipe, don’t just compare the ingredients to my grocery list, I have a bunch already.
**For my snacks, I like to keep those as fresh and ‘unprocessed’ as possible. The easiest way to do this – buy DOUBLE of a few ingredients that you will be using in your MEALS! For example, Red Bell Pepper is needed for the Ham, Egg & Cheese Bake. I will buy extra pepper and dip it in hummus for a snack. I buy extra eggs for hard boiled eggs and then fresh fruit with nut butters is always my favorite. I try not to over complicate things yet keep the food interesting so I don’t get bored!
**This is where DOUBLE BUYING comes in!! I wrote about this the other day. I don’t buy my carrots & hummus, apples, hard boiled eggs, etc as snacks AND THEN also buy a bag of cookies (just in case I need something). Rather, I buy a nut butter to add taste to my apple or flavored hummus to keep my taste buds satisfied! Eating HEALTHY gets expensive when you DOUBLE BUY!
*DON’T REINVENT THE WHEEL. MOST RECIPES I FIND ON PINTEREST, BLOGS OR FRIENDS.*
*KEEP YOUR LIST SIMPLE. GO WITH A BUNCH OF THINGS YOU KNOW AND ONLY ADD A FEW NEW ITEMS! DON’T OVERWHELM YOURSELF.*
