Let’s Shop

If there’s one thing I don’t mind not doing every month it’s grocery shopping but hey a girl’s gotta eat, right? But there are those days I just refuse to fall into the trap of month-end-big- trolley-shopping. So I decided to share some of my food essentials that I just cannot go without.

P.s I am not promoting any brand or product; I’m sharing and basing my choices on personal experiences and what I found fitted to my daily routines.

a Good breakfast

I always aim to buy 2 breakfasts ( if there is none left after one month). One that is a grab-and-go like rusks and the other a more traditional cereal or porridge. I love oats and weetbix as my choice of porridge so it will be one of them. With this, I aim to choose rusk with more fibre so the wholewheat/grain one is what I choose. Read Start your day great to see why having breakfast is important.

 

Provitas or Rice cakes 

These gems can double as a snack or lunch depending on the type of day you having. If you woke up early enough to make lunch than it can be a snack; if you ate your lunch the night before (trust me it happens) then it can be your lunch. They become good substitutes for bread and can literally be topped with anything to make it more wholesome.

 

Eggs 

Eggs has become one of my staple buys. They are usually my snack in between meals or a topping to either rice cakes or provitas.

 

Seafood

Whether it’s frozen fish, a basic seafood mix or prawn meat pack. Seafood is the quickest to cook in terms of time when it comes to the proteins. They can be used in a salad, pasta or a basic curry; add a side and you have a cooked meal in under 60 minutes.

 

Frozen Vegetables

Contrary to popular belief, frozen vegetables does not have less nutrients than fresh vegetables. I found to have less food wastage when buying frozen and I add them to any stew, or use them as a side for a meal.

Tinned Tuna 

I usually buy them in two’s or three’s since they are not only a snack or sandwich filling, I can use them in a pasta salad as well for a easy supper or lunch.

 

 

I mostly base my choices on what I plan to make or have for the days ahead and what fits my lifestyle. By all means I don’t want you to buy what I buy but what I do want you to do is buy the things that will fit your lifestyle.

I always consider time, preparation and nutrient value of a food product when I buy it. I try new things as well and when its good I stick to it, if not I try and try again.

Also try buying foods that has multiple purposes I.e tuna or seafood can be used for both stews, pasta salads and in the case of tuna, a filling as well.

Once you find what works for you, the food buying gets easier (and quicker!) because you will be able to plan your meals and snacking ahead for the day or week.

And lastly, always have grocery list when going to the store. To prevent you from ending up with a bunch of food you hardly ever use.

As always your interaction, comments and shares is what keeps the posts coming so do continue to do so!!
