Ask and you shall receive- I have created a much requested list of what a typical grocery haul looks like for me!
I have tailored this post to Fall/early Winter produce- as I try to eat in season as much as possible. This allows me to feel more connected to my food and mindful of what I am consuming. More importantly, eating produce in its proper season ensures that it is at its peak nutritional value and flavor.
I have provided a list of what produce is in season for November and December, as well as what a typical grocery list looks like for me.
Some items on the list are everyday items that I always have on hand and do not necessarily have to purchase every single week (avocado oil, olive oil, nutritional yeast, etc.)
Let my grocery list be a general guide for you. The reason I included a list of what is in season right now is because you can pick and choose from that list and change it up each week. For example, pears are great in the Fall- but that doesn't mean they are on my list this week. I am always changing it up and rotating the fruits/veggies I buy each week! Let the change in seasons be an inspiration for you to try new fruits and vegetables- especially if you are someone who typically eats more or less the same thing every day!
I hope this makes your next trip to the grocery store much more of a breeze. I love sharing my tips and go-to products/food items with all of you. Making small steps in the kitchen truly results in huge changes in your overall health and wellness. Eating food we feel good about and doing what we can to nourish our bodies so that we can feel the best version of ourselves- that's what healthy eating is all about for me. xx
