Perfect Shopping List

I arrived home today after a long month of research, to find my refrigerator pretty empty in the edible department. So I planned a quick shopping trip! Food City, the 99centonly store, and Sprouts. I filled my fridge with edibles for $35 and will be able to eat for a week. (This includes the lunches I will pack when working doubles or going on explorations.) 

Check out the things I thought were essentials for this first week in June. 

Fruits: bananas, nectarines, melon, avocados, tomatos, 

Veggies: onions, garlic, zucchini, brussel sprouts, mushrooms, bell peppers, kale, parsley, 

Other: eggs, yogurt, rice cakes, almond cheese, almond milk, vege tuna, queso fresco,Image

For tonights dinner, I am sautéing brussel sprouts, bell peppers, and mushrooms together; surrounding that with a few ravioli I found in my freezer, topped with a little marinara sauce and queso fresco.

Tips for a good shopping list:

-Think Fresh

-Think about what you have in your pantry, freezer, and fridge. What can you get for free here??

-Money Management. Where can you get good quality, decently priced ingredients for your culinary experiments?

-Buy what you need for the week. No need to overstock the food supply. 

-Make a list. This insures you buy only what you need. (I get sidetracked often so this helps me be efficient.)

Enjoy your shopping, Your Freedom of Choice.
