Grocery Haul: What I Eat in a Week

www.katiehsnyder.com - Grocery Haul: What I Eat In A Week

A Look Inside My Grocery Cart

Ask and you shall receive! Nutrition is something I’ve grown to be passionate about, so I’m so glad so many of you are interested in learning my tips and tricks to stay healthy without restricting yourself. BALANCE is so important, people! Kendall and I eat clean and cheap on the weeknights so that we can indulge on the weekends. We love trying new recipes so we aren’t eating the same things each week! I’ve broken down this week’s grocery haul into different categories: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinners, and Snacks. We meal prep all our breakfasts and lunches on Sundays, then we cook dinners fresh each night! My goal when I plan our meals is to pick options that utilize the same ingredients so we don’t waste anything. If you’re interested in knowing the details of these recipes, I’ll be doing some “Meal Prep Monday” posts featuring meals that we make, love, and would highly recommend! If there are any of these that you’d like to see on those posts, leave a comment below!

If you’ve read my Get to Know Me post then you know that Kendall and I get our groceries delivered each week through an app called Instacart. They have drivers that shop at a local grocery store (of your choice) and deliver them straight to your door! This app has TRULY changed our weekly routine. We use to dread Sunday afternoons because grocery shopping and meal prepping would consume our entire day. Now, we plan our order, choose a time that’s most convenient for delivery, and let them do the rest! If you’re interested in signing up for Instacart, you can use the code KSNYDER5AD1B2 or you can use this link https://inst.cr/t/MU1ybZvSu to save $10 off your first delivery! Alright – time to jump into this week’s haul!


Breakfast Meal Prep

Breakfast Casserole

The word casserole has always turned me off. But let me be the one to tell you that this dish is DEFINITELY not a turn-off. Kendall and I prep this for our breakfasts almost every week! It’s low-calorie but extremely filling. It makes 8-10 servings, and it tastes just as good on Friday as it did on Monday!

Ingredients include:

  • Eggs
  • Egg Whites
  • Red Onion
  • Turkey Sausage
  • Baby Spinach
  • Not pictured: Milk

Lunch Meal Prep

Greek Chicken Bowl

This lunch meal prep option is unreal good. If you like Greek food (or even if you don’t), you have GOT to try it. It’s full of flavor, high in protein, low in carbs, fat and sugar, and it keeps you full. This dish includes Greek marinated chicken over a bed of rice, a Tzatziki dip, cucumber salad, and an onion/tomato mix. If I had to explain it in one word it would be FRESH.

Ingredients include:

  • Chicken Tenderloins
  • Brown Rice
  • English Cucumber
  • Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Red Onion
  • Dill Weed
  • Not pictured: Lemons, Garlic, Olive Oil


Dinners

Two in One: Buffalo Chicken and Steak Fajita Lettuce Wraps

I LOATHE throwing away uneaten groceries, so if I buy any type of lettuce I try and make use of it for at least two meals! For this week, I decided on two types of lettuce wraps: Buffalo Chicken and Steak Fajita. These are both SO flavorful that you won’t even miss the tortilla!

  • Buffalo-Style
    • Romaine Lettuce Leaves
    • Chicken Tenderloins
    • Buffalo Sauce (we use Frank’s)
    • Panko Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs
    • Red Onion
    • Roma Tomato
    • Green Onion
    • Bolthouse Farms Ranch Dressing
  • Steak Fajita Style
    • Romaine Lettuce Leaves
    • Flank Steak
    • Steak Marinade (your choice – we found one on Pinterest!)
    • Bell Peppers
    • Red Onion
    • Roma Tomato
    • Avocado

Italian-Style Turkey Meatloaf

We tweaked this recipe from a fitness blogger I follow, and it’s now become one of our go-to meals that we make once every couple of weeks. Best part? It makes enough portions for Kendall and me to eat for two nights. I know what you’re thinking… Meatloaf for one night sounds gross, but TWO nights? So please note, this is NOT your classic meatloaf. That’s why I call it “italian-style”. It’s packed full of veggies and protein – but still so good!

Ingredients include:

  • Lean Ground Turkey
  • Bell Peppers
  • Red Onion
  • Egg Whites
  • Baby Spinach
  • Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • Your Favorite Marinara Sauce – we love the Classico Roasted Garlic (low in sugar!)

Spicy Chicken Avocado Tacos

We are BIG taco guys. If we allowed ourselves, we’d have a different form of a taco every single night. BUT we try and limit our tortillas during the week so that we can indulge on the weekends! This recipe is so good – spicy (which I love), fresh, and the crema that goes on top is so yummy and low-cal!

Ingredients include:

  • Chicken Tenderloins
  • Mini Tortillas (we use the Mission Carb Balance)
  • Avocado
  • Lime
  • Cilantro
  • Light Sour Cream
  • Shredded Lettuce (of your choice)
  • Spices (Chili Powder, Cumin, Garlic Powder)
  • Olive Oil

Snacks

What would life be like without snacks? I don’t know about you, but I am NOT one of those girls who can eat three square meals a day and go to bed satisfied. I have to have snacks between, during, and after each meal. You think I’m kidding. We switch these up each week, but here are the ones we decided on!

  • Kettlecorn PopCorners (I have to be on portion control for these – SO good and SO addicting!)
  • Mini Pretzel Thins with Supremely Spicy Hummus
  • Blueberries
  • Sliced Deli Turkey and Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese (to go on top of rice cakes)
  • Protein Bars (Quest isn’t my FAVORITE brand of protein bars but it’s the only option I had)
  • Sugar-Free Jell-O (I have one of these every single day with my lunch – cures my sweet tooth!)
  • Reduced Fat Wheat Thins with 3-Pepper Boars Head Cheese and Turkey Pepperonis (AKA mini lunchables)
  • Greek Yogurt (high in protein and low in fat)

That’s it for this week, babes! For anyone wondering, we have a strict budget of $150 to spend on groceries for each week, but we typically stay quite a bit under that! This week’s bill was $130 for all the items listed (and that includes the tip for the Instacart driver!). If you’re interested in seeing more grocery hauls, let me know in a comment below! I’d love to share what we buy each week on my Instagram stories if that’s something you’d like to see.

xoxo, Katie
