Boo another weekend gone. And only THREE left in my current apartment before I move into the city – cahrazy!
I have to say, I am seriously kicking this kitchen clean out challenge’s BUTT. I have done so well limiting my grocery spending and working my way through my pantry/fridge/freezer and though I still have a few weeks left, I’m quite impressed with my progress. And humble about it, too.
Yesterday, I took a trip to Whole Foods and managed to do really well there.
Here’s everything I got:
Let’s take a closer look:
- Spring Mix
- Peaches (99 cents a lb!)
- Organic red grapes (2.99/lb)
- Organic Bananas x5
- Quart grape tomatoes ($2.99!!)
- Organic Green Beans
- Multigrain Pop Cakes (see below)
- Fage 0% ($3 on sale)
- Organic Firm Tofu
- Vidalia Onions x2
- Organic Collards
The new-to-me purchase of the day:
Multigrain Pop Cakes. They are sort of like a cross between rice cakes and pop chips with an almost rice cake like texture. Sort of hard to explain, but check out the stats:
A serving is six of them, and they are pretty big – about the size of a corn tortilla. 6 have 3 pts+, so you get 2 for 1 pointplus. Not bad!
And the ingredient list?
Short and pronounceable. Win!
The total damage from the trip?
Just 23.74! Woohoo.
Here’s what I came up for a meal plan, using up all the fresh stuff I bought plus working my way through some things still left in my kitchen:
|Monday||Eggs w/toast and tomatoes, grapes||Salad w/black beans + cheese + pop cakes||Collard Wraps|
|Tuesday||Overnight Oats in a Jar w/banana||Leftover Collard Wraps w/Popchips||Sesame Tempeh w/steamed spinach|
|Wednesday||Green smoothie w/greek yogurt, milk, frozen fruit||Leftover tempeh and spinach over salad||Refried bean and Cheese burrito, steamed collards|
|Thursday||Bagel thin w/peanut butter and banana||Bean + Cheese burrito w/veggies||Linguini with white clam sauce|
|Friday||Greek yogurt w/frozen berries + cereal||Leftover linguini w/white clam sauce||BBQ Tofu + green beans|
I’m most excited about the collard wraps for tonight – they’re something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time and am finally getting around to! I’ll do a step-by-step recap of the technique later this week – don’t worry.
And just for kicks, here’s my workout/marathon training plan for the week as well:
- Monday: 1 hour outdoor yoga – Check!
- Tuesday: 5 mile run
- Wednesday: The Shred
- Thursday: 35 minute intervals
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: 12 miles (!)
- Sunday: Rest
