What We Eat – Grocery Trip

Last night the boys and I went to Costco for our monthly beginning-of-the-month shopping trip. We get the majority of our food for the month on this trip and usually go once mid-month for a few things, too. I know most people think grocery shopping is a chore (and I would definitely feel that way too if Jesse wasn’t along to help me handle Camden and load and unload all these bulk, un-bagged groceries into the car) but I personally look forward to it. Anyway, here’s a quick post with the groceries I got, as well as how I plan to eat them!


Dry/Packaged Goods

  • 2-pack Alpine Valley bread
  • Skinny Pop popcorn
  • Seeds of Change prepared whole grains pouches
  • long grain brown rice
  • Kirkland protein bars (very similar to Quest Bars but a fraction of the price)
  • canned black beans
  • Crunchmaster multigrain crackers
  • Kirkland chicken stock
  • pure maple syrup


  • 5 dozen eggs
  • 1 gallon 2% milk
  • Greek yogurt
  • 6 pounds ground turkey
  • AMYLU chicken sausage links

Fresh Produce

  • sugar snap peas
  • cherry tomatoes
  • bananas
  • sweet corn
  • bell peppers
  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • baby spinach
  • avocados
  • apples
  • pomegranate arils

Here are the some of the meals I plan to make with this delicious food (and food I already have):

  • Southwest Rice + Bean Stuffed Peppers
  • Blueberry+Raspberry Yogurt + Granola Bowls
  • Pomegranate +Almond Chicken Salad
  • Blueberry Pancakes
  • Chicken + Rice Soup
  • Turkey Chili
  • Avocado Toast

Thanks to the large sizes, every grocery trip looks different. For example, I’m well-stocked on the following, so they weren’t needed this month: peanut butter, honey, oats, frozen veggies, Kodiak Cakes mix, Flatouts, frozen chicken breasts, and block cheese. The constants are fresh produce, eggs, milk, bread, and various snack items like popcorn and protein bars. Many of the items I buy are organic and I’m always pleased with the quality of the food I buy. Quality food and my health is important to me and something I’m willing to invest in.

So there you have it! Keep up with my snapchat ( stephlynn04 ) to see the snacks and meals I make out of these groceries!
