Grocery shopping .... ugghhh ! Who really likes to go grocery shopping each week? It's one of those duties that just needs to get done each week but it can be pretty painless if you can plan ahead of time and stick to it !

So many people ask me what I eat so I am going to tell you exactly what I get each and every week ! It doesn't change unless I try a new recipe that I need extra ingredients for. 99.9% of the time I buy and eat the same foods each and every week. Lucky for me I am a creature of habit. I don't like changes and I like when things are planned out for me ahead of time. The biggest benefit of planning everything out is having your meals in mind and that will help you stay on track. Mindless shopping for random things to cook with will only lead you to be frustrated and buying items that are not the best for you. So here is a list of what I buy each week !! The items with a ** are bought maybe once a month or until I run out !

Protein Sources
-Chicken breast ( 2 packs of breasts and 1 of tenders)
