I thought that the week of July 4th would slow down but I was so wrong. It’s nuts! I originally planned to spend the week in Florida with my family but thank god I decided to postpone that until later this summer because I am booked solid this week with clients and classes. I have clients every day starting at 5:30 a.m., classes and clients every evening and I’m scheduled to teach two special July 4 yoga classes. Usually summer is slow in the fitness industry but business is good this year! Such a blessing!
This busy week is making me hungry! I did a major restock at Trader Joe’s on Sunday afternoon and wanted to share what I purchase with y’all. Note that I had already done a farmers market trip Saturday where I picked up fresh chicken, ground beef, kale, squash, zucchini, peaches and tomatoes. And I had recently restocked on spinach, salad greens and bananas at Whole Foods.
Veggies included eggplant, broccoli slaw, brussels sprouts, button mushrooms, portobello mushrooms and avocado.
Fruit included apples, nectarines, kiwis and lemons.
Dairy was plain greek yogurt, shredded Italian cheese blend, shaved cheese and feta.
Pantry and fridge supplies included…salsa, olive oil spray, peanut butter, almond butter, almond milk, green juice (TJ’s just started carrying cold-pressed juice. It was $4.99 at my store. I’ll let you know what I think.), fig butter, pepper jelly, honey, garbanzo beans, coconut milk, chicken stock, sundried tomatoes, brown rice and sliced almonds.
Extra-firm tofu, chicken sausage and wild caught salmon.
And for the frozen goods…two new to me products…a quinoa, sweet potato and kale blend and a blend of green garbanzo beans and lentils. Also, another veggie blend, strawberries and figs. I was SO EXCITED that they had the figs again. I got them a few months ago and haven’t seen them since. They are giant and delicious and perfect for smoothies!
I think it’s safe to say that my fridge, freezer and pantry are stocked. I’m eating good this week and cannot wait to share the next recent eats post with you! 🙂
Have a great July 4th week!
