Haha I make the mistake of going to the store and dropping 100 bucks. I am a hungry kid though!

I just found your blog! I saw on the side of your blog that you are incorporating 'jillian's circuit training' is that from her book "Making the Cut"? I just bought it and want to get going on it. Do you have any tips? Thank you for posting your groceries. I am not good with nutrition and am trying to learn.
Best,
Becca

How do you prepare your sweet potato/goat cheese/black bean combo? Just black beans over a baked/nuked sweet potato with goat cheese on top?

It is funny you posted this- i just started doing it this week! makes life soooo much easier and shopping that much faster to have meals planned out!

marathonmaiden said...

nice list! i don't really do the shopping when i'm at home and when i'm at school my groceries are supplementary to what the dining halls serves. but i agree that planning is the way to go before you shop!

allijag said...

Love all the delicious loot you got! I want to send a list, but I just do boring, small trips! ;)

brandi said...

great list and meal ideas! we do something similar. I always plan by what's on sale that week/what I can find at the market.

Niki said...

Great list! I avn't believe you got all that for aroung $55-60!! I need to work on my grocery store spending!

Lisa said...

This is great. Care to share your dinner recipes?

Jessica said...

Wow, thanks, Bobbi! This is an awesome list! Can you be my meal planner every week??

I totally look through the papers for awesome deals. That's the only way I buy my fruit ($1 Strawberry packs? Yup! $1.99/lb cherries? Uh huh!) But then I get so caught up on good deals, I "stock up" on foods...and that's how I ended up with like 11 boxes of cereal! Yikes! haha
