I have been working on my meal prep + making the most of my time in the kitchen. Likewise, I am trying to be more methodical + intentional when I go grocery shopping. This means, a grocery list is essential. Typically I leave out a notebook on my counter and add items to the list throughout the week.
However, I recently made a ‘quick trip to the store’ to grab just a couple lunch items for the week. This was a mistake. While I did pickup the ingredients for salad + sandwiches, I also grabbed a few too many junk food items. My delicious bar of salted-almond chocolate which I justified as a dessert to eat all week long, was gone in 2 days. And, its oh-so-easy to gravitate towards these snacks throughout the day. Being at home with an infant that requires quite a bit of attention deters me enough from getting a well-rounded meal. I don’t need to throw in junk food to the mix.
I guess you live and you learn. However, do you have any healthy snack suggestions to help me stock my kitchen?
