I’ve always been a list maker. I’m so dedicated to my lists that sometimes if I do something that wasn’t on a list, I’ll add it just so I can cross it off. I know. I have issues. When Andy was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, the best way for us to stay on track with healthy cooking and eating was to create a weekly meal plan along with a grocery list. It helped establish and maintain a grocery budget, and it made shopping so much easier than just wandering through the aisles grabbing things that looked good (even if they weren’t good for us).
Over the years, my grocery lists have taken several forms: Good old pen and paper, the Our Grocery app, and most recently a spreadsheet in Google Docs.
So that you can see how our weekly meal plans translate into a grocery list, I’ve decided to share our weekly grocery list with you! If you have any questions about what you see (Seriously, 5 heads of cabbage? That can’t be right!) please let us know. There is a method to our madness.
And without further ado, here’s what we’ll be eating this week!
– Garbage stirfry from NomNom Paleo
– Cobb salad
– Brussels sprouts hash with fried eggs
– Braised cabbage with fried eggs
– Pork tenderloin with roasted sweet potatoes, turnips, and Granny Smith apples
– Zoodles (zucchini noodles) with mushroom tomato ragu
– Hodge Podge
