Weekly Meal Plan+Grocery Haul

Hey guys!

So per requests from my wonderful Fit Travel Life Facebook group, I have decided to document my weekly meal plan and grocery haul! Hopefully, this will help inspire people with healthy recipe ideas AND show you can eat healthy and stick to a decent grocery budget. I have several of these posts from last year as well, so if you need different ideas, check out some of the old posts here.

Here is what we have on the menu for the week:.

The zucchini recipe I sort of threw together, so let me know if you’d like the details. I’ll use a variation of this recipe for the chili (with only one can of beans). Skinnytaste Eggs in Purgatory are a staple in our house, and I will probably wing it on the meatballs for Thursday as well.

Something to note: I do typically plan quick or crockpot meals for nights I work. Keaton will either throw the last few steps together or keep the crockpot warm for me so I can eat when I get home at 8 or later those nights. Day shift has proven to help my overall life, but still comes with its own challenges when it comes to staying healthy and happy.

For our grocery haul, I was actually surprised I got as much as I did for what I spent! We aren’t huge fans of the tap water here, and with how dry it is we like to make sure we’re staying hydrated. So I bought sparkling water, flavored water, and bottled water this week. No judgement please 😉

And, we are eating good this week! The zucchini lasagna should give us some leftovers for lunches, and we also should have some from the white chicken chili.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated, it just takes a little planning. I spent today prepping the lasagna and chili to make my days easy when I work, and so I have enough energy for my 4:30 am wake up call for CrossFit.

And that’s it! Comment below if you’re curious about meal planning or grocery budgeting. I’d love to hear how you guys like these posts and if you’d like to see more of them.
