Grocery List


A few people have asked about my weekly groceries. I wish I had a list that I use year round, but it usually changes every few months depending on what's in season, what I'm craving and how my budget is doing. I've been using the list below for the past month or so. All of the recipes you've seen lately have come from it. I love being creative and finding food combos that make amazing meals- when you least expect it! When the only things left in the fridge are cauliflower, one zucchini, garlic and a few drops of almond milk... most people are one foot out the door to the grocery store. I'm reaching for the nutritional yeast and making mac and cheese!!
This week I'm adding dates to the list. Last week I added celery and stewed tomatoes. It changes here and there but if you stick with this base there's not too much to add.

This list is perfect for a low fat, vegan, gluten free diet on a budget. This provides me with 3 big meals a day and 3-4 snacks  for 6 days :) ~$70
