Ever heard of the saying, “Abs are made in the kitchen?,” I love and hate that saying.
I love it because it’s so raw to it’s point and I hate it because it’s so damn hard to do. You know? Major struggle to eat healthy all day, everyday. Shout out to all the instagram models LOL! (for real though!)
I’ve tried many things, and looked up many websites to find the “secret” to staying on track. But the secret is simple: Eating Healthy Starts In The Supermarket!
Yes! You’ve heard it here first!! It starts when you do your grocery shopping. And from the moment you step foot in that supermarket- you are in FULL control of how your week is about to go.
Have you ever looked around to see what people are buying for the week or month at the supermarket? :O) Please start to if you haven’t already. It’s terrifying. 12 packs of sodas, tons of bread, ice cream, cereals filled with sugar, processed foods on processed foods, etc…
Yuck. You get where I’m getting at! =|
Can we all agree that we want to max out our years of life? I know I do! But it can’t be real that 95% of the people shopping at the supermarket don’t see it. I just can’t wrap my head around that thought.
Anyway, once I moved out of my parents house a couple of years ago is when I started to have full control of the food I eat. I realized that knowing my obsession with “xyz” (example: bread). If I had bread in my possession, I would eat it all in a week or less- every week. So why not spare myself the temptation, and not have it around?
Sounds simple? That’s because it is! All you got to do is NOT buy unhealthy food.
With all that said- I decided to be “the girl taking pics of her groceries in the supermarket” this Sunday to give you guys some ideas of what to buy when you do your own shopping! 😉
Let’s start with PROTEIN! My favorite.
Ryan makes fun of me for buying those packages of fish. But honestly, it’s the greatest thing ever for meal prepping. You have about 6 individual packages inside and all you have to do is season them!
I usually buy different types of fish every week. And this week I also bought chicken, as you can see below.
But I switch it up, so I don’t get sick of the same old. =)
And of course, when talking protein- we can’t forget the eggs. I have 3 eggs every morning, so I need lots of eggs every week.
I also have a “Kashi” Organic Promise cereal (healthiest cereal you can have & great source of carbs).
I’m also slightly obsessed with Greek Yogurt (0%). I have it as a snack with chia seeds, banana, and granola.
If you follow me on insta, I must have posted a trillion pics of it by now haha!
Milk! Guys- the Silk Soymilk below is EVERYTHING. I have it with my cereal every morning, it is DELICIOUSSSSS. I can’t emphasize it enough, I really can’t. I kind of want to have it right now. haha!
The 2% I normally get they didn’t have, so I bought the one below. I’ll have 2% with my protein shakes. Milk with 0% does absolutely nothing for you. Which is why I stir away from it.
Protein bars are honestly not my favorite thing in the world to consume. Buuut, sometimes if I need to hit my macros- a protein bar is an easy snack to have.
For instance, for breakfast if you’re running late. Pick a bar and go. Boom!
The one below is so far my favorite. I want to say I tried it all but that would be me exaggerating lol! I did try tons though and I should add I can be very picky with my bars. I like them not too sweet but sweet’ish..(I just made up a new word but you understand where I’m going here) 😉
Ok. So aside from being picky with bars, I HAAAAAAAAATE water. I know it has no taste, so I guess I hate the taste of no taste? But seriously, I really do. I have hated it all my life. Until I found propel. First, I used to buy the bottles but they got too pricey- so I buy the flavors and add it to my water. I bring 3 bottles of water to work everyday. And my mission is to finish it before I get home. It works for me =) Propel has every flavor but as you can see, kiwi strawberry is my favorite. Not sick of it yet. =)
Greenssss.. Must have! Olivia’s Organics all day. Soo soo good! This is also perfect for making green juice! Spinach & Kale is the perfect combo.
Sweet potatoes! They are A MUST HAVE in my book. People say it doesn’t matter if they are sweet or not. Well, for those people all I can say is I’m not taking chances and I love my sweet thangs.I usually cook them in the oven, fries shaped. I season it many different ways every week.
Add me on snap: “Fear_Ordinary” I usually share my prepping every week.
I love this pasta more than life. Ryan’s mom found this gem. It takes 10-15 minutes to prepare and it has 9g of protein and 48g of carbs. This is not to have everyday, obv. But if your macros fit, this baby is a 10.
This week I started buying this Starbucks unsweetened to save money on coffee. It’s less than $7 and will last me more than a week. Hollerrrrrrrrr! Energy booster, come to mama! =)
Lastly, I did want to point out the mixed veggies next to the bananas. Those are so yummy and it takes less than 10 minutes in the microwave. Easy way to get your veggies in and tastes AMAZE.
Soooooooo.. what did you guys think!!!? I hope I inspired you to start a healthy lifestyle. And to stir away from all the bad aisles in the supermarket. Start your healthy lifestyle when you step foot in the market and you will see how much progress you will have and how much healthier you will eat!
That’s all for now babes!
