What I bought to eat clean this week

This might seem strange, but I read another fitness blogger’s account of what she bought at the grocery store and I found it very interesting. So, I thought I would share what I bought this week to keep eating clean.
This was also interesting for me to realize what I buy. As our family has transitioned to clean eating, I have bought more and more produce. This week, I have plenty of meat in the freezer so I didn’t buy any. I menu plan for the week ahead and go shopping once a week, so this is what is needed for next week’s menu. I typically stay close to my list, mainly because I have children with me and shop half distracted.

Fruit
I often eat apples with peanut butter as a snack. I bought extra this week to make crockpot apple oatmeal and possibly some apple butter or applesauce. I also picked up extra bananas because they are on sale and we go through them quickly. If bananas start to get brown I peel them and freeze them. I got the strawberries to use for a strawberry salsa tonight.

Vegetables
I almost always buy avocados if they are under $.70 a piece. Avocado is a great source of good fat and I also just like them. Cucumbers are to use instead of chips to dip in hummus this week. Asparagus was an add on to the menu when I found it on sale.
Normally I try to chop up any fruit and vegetables that need it when we get home from the store, but not many need it this week.

Milk, dairy
I would love to say I was just stocking up on eggs, but the truth is that we go through at least 2 dozen a week, plus whatever I use for cooking and baking. I got honey yogurt for the boys and greek yogurt for me. Turkey bacon is for cooking with this week. I recently transitioned us from shredded cheese to buying block cheese. If I have to cut cheese or shred it myself I use less so it’s helping to keep from adding cheese to every dish I make.
Don’t get me started on the hotdogs. I was so hopeful to find organic hotdogs from Oscar Meyer. I read the ingredients and they contain sugar! Back to the good old kosher dogs for us.

Grains
These are mainly snack foods. I got Nathan Oat bread for his lunches this week. I was excited to find a trail mix with just raisins, seeds and nuts. Prepackaged granola is hard to find without sugar, so I was excited to find Musli (which is similar to granola) made without sugar. I found all natural dried bananas and cranberries, which I am planning on using for snacks and to make a homemade trailmix for the boys.
