My Mostly Healthy Grocery List 5/21/17

Sorry that I have been MIA lately. Some crazy things have been happening and I have a major¬†announcement coming soon. But in more simple life things….we just got back from camping, and keeping it real….we ate out a few meals this week. Yep. Multiple times in the same week. And we feel totally gross (and guilty for the budget!). But we are hopping right back onto the budget health train and moving forward. Mostly. The reason for the title mostly healthy grocery list My husband had some completely not healthy requests that I didn’t bother arguing – see below. Camping was great by the way ūüôā

Here is my mostly healthy grocery list…



  • Mushrooms
  • Eggs
  • Bacon (not Whole30)
  • Arugula
  • Strawberries

Sam’s Club

  • BBQ Sauce (not W30)
  • Pork Chops

note: I was going to get pork spare ribs, but the chops wre so much cheaper that I couldn’t bring myself to pay almost double for the ribs. Some other time when we feel like splurging!

  • Smoked Turkey Deli Meat (not W30 – but a GREAT paleo option)
  • Chicken and apple sausage (not W30 but also a great paleo option!)
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Pretzel nuggets (hubby’s request)
  • Tomatoes
  • Digorno 3 pack Meat Lover’s Pizza (hubby’s request. gross.)
  • Cat litter
  • Batteries – D and AA

Another note: this week we are¬†intentionally not eating a frittata, but are instead eating chicken and apple sausages with sides. I found myself overly busy and making excuses to not eat frittata. Even after my¬†ways to mix up frittata¬†post, we have gotten to the point of needing something different. I hope that we can return to our typical frittata next week though because the sausages are more expensive, and are not Whole30 approved (Aidell’s Chicken and Apple sausages ARE Whole30 compliant, just more expensive)

Some meals we plan to make:

  • Pork Chops with Basalmic Brussel Sprouts
  • Shrimp Curry over¬†Toasted Cauli-Rice (W30)
  • Grilled Chicken Salads
  • Chicken& Apple Sausage w/ sides
