Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! Sad that it is already Sunday and the weekend is half way over but looking forward to a fun day with the family
Last week I planned meals for two weeks rather than one. Then I made a trip to Whole Foods and Costco to hopefully last us for both weeks. I typically make a Costco trip every two to three weeks or at least once a month. Lately I’ve been thrilled to see that Costco is getting more and more healthy, organic products. This makes my Costco trips a little more expensive but my grocery trips a little less. Here’s my haul from last week,
Organic Sweet Potatoes, Organic Carrots, Pineapple, Organic Chicken Breast (also get chicken thighs) Organic Apple Chips, Almonds, Almond butter, bananas, Organic Strawberries, All Natural Maple Chicken Breakfast Sausage, Organic Eggs, Avocados, and natural foods at costco. All this (plus another carton of eggs, and T.P.) cost just a little over $100.
This is just some of my normal purchases from Costco but here’s a look at some other great finds I saw while there.
Organic Butter (a 4pack) Organic Whole Milk (for babies and toddlers but they also have organic 1% milk), Nitrate free organic smoked turkey breast (2 pack), and for paleo eaters, Pure Ghee.
Wild Salmon and Wild Tuna
Brad’s Organic Peanut Butter (for The Love Nugget) and Crushed organic tomatoes in jars! Which means no BPA! Yay!
Amongst these things we also often get Natural, no hormone, no antibiotic, nitrate free Chicken Apple Sausages, organic celery, organic baby spinach, organic baby kale, asparagus (3.99 for a huge bunch right now!), raw walnuts, raw pecans, frozen organic berries, organic apples, and other produce that they might have a good deal on. I’m always thrilled when I find that they are carrying organic produce that is on the dirty dozen like apples, spinach, kale, berries, celery, peaches, or sweet potatoes!
We’ve got most the foods we need for our meals this week but will be hitting up the Farmer’s Market today for a few fresh produce items. I didn’t get a chance to post last weeks meal plan but here’s what this week looks like :-) I’m linking up today with Laura at Mommy Run Fast and Jill at Fitness, Health and Happiness for their Sunday Meal Planning party!
Sunday - Chicken Kabobs
Monday – Coconut Chicken Nuggets with sautéed kale and turkey bacon
Tuesday - Codd Salad
Wednesday - Foil wrapped Codd and asparagus
Thursday – Left-overs for the hubby since I’ll be at a girls night
Friday – Avocado stuffed burgers and sweet potato fries
Saturday – Out with friends for dinner and the Electric Run!
Yesterday I managed to get some food prep for the week done and will finish up today. Checked off my list was boiled eggs, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted Kambocha Squash and chopped veggies. Today I’ll be making Paleo Banana Bread, some sort of protein bite, Protein Bars and grilled chicken for the week.
Like I said we are heading to the Farmers market today after we go for a run. Then home for The Love Nugget to nap and to pack a lunch for the park and play time! The weather has been absolutely gorgeous this weekend so we are soaking it up!
Have a great Sunday all!
