Hi lovely people! I hope you are settling into 2017 as well as I am. I can't believe January is halfway over though. It's crazy how quickly time can pass by without even knowing it.
Are you sticking to your New Years goals? Are you continuing to eat better, go to the gym more often, or take days to focus on yourself? Let's start with food. Food shopping can be very difficult for many people. I am usually quick and focused when I shop. I prepare a list, get everything I need, and try new products if they are on sale or if they look yummy. For those of you who have no idea where to start when you enter the grocery store..I have a list for you. I'm not recommending that you purchase ONLY these items, but these are the most common foods that I'll have in my refrigerator or my pantry. This is simply just a compilation of ideas for ingredients that you can use to meal plan! Are you buying similar foods? Do you have any products that you recommend for me? Comment below!
The Hungry College Girl's Food Shopping Essentials
Baby Red Potatoes
Rice (I use brown or jasmine)
Eggs (yeah I know this isn't meat but idk what category it fits under lol)
Bacon (Pork or Chicken)
*For plant proteins, try beans, chickpeas, and lentils. Do your research though..I'm not a dietician
Coconut Oil Spray
Honey or Agave
Protein Powder- I use Vega
Van's frozen waffles
Like I said before, I'm not a dietician, nor am I telling you that you should only eat these foods. Do what is best for YOUR body. Eat what your body craves and remember..EAT! Don't deprive your body of nutrients. Eat when you are hungry, drink lots of water, and find the balance in your diet.
