What is in My shopping Basket?

What food should you buy to eat healthy but not boring? Read this to find out! I have spent the last few months food prepping great food and both D’Arcy and I have become leaner. But not once have we eaten plain chicken breast and broccoli (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it can get boring if that’s the only thing you eat all the time)

Grocery Shopping and buying the right foods for the week is vital to keep me on track and consistent for achieving my health and fitness goals. The following foods are the foods that are regularly purchased for the week:


-Lean Beef Mince

-Crumbed Chicken or Chicken Breast

-Lean Steak


-Red Onion

-Brown onion

-Cherry Tomatoes




-Sweet Potato



-Kale Coleslaw mix

-Mixed frozen veggies (they keep for AGES! And are the cheaper option usually)



-Frozen Mixed Berries




-Chobani Greek Yoghurt

-Grated Cheese


-Rolled Oats

-Rice crackers


-Peppermint Tea

-Instant coffee

-Minced Garlic

-Canned Tomatoes

-Curry Powder

-Taco Mix

-Unsalted Nuts

-Peanut Butter

These are the foods that find themselves in my shopping basket most of the time. Of course occasionally there’s some chocolate because let’s face it, life without chocolate is horrible. But 80% healthy 20% chocolate is where it’s at.

Meal Ideas and Snack Ideas Using the Shopping List:

  • Porridge, With Fruit, Greek Yoghurt and Nuts


  • 2x Rice Cakes with small amount Peanut Butter and a Drizzle of Honey (Snack)


  • Curried Mince/Veg

Cook Mince with Onion (chopped finely) with a teaspoon of both garlic and curry powder

Once meat and onion are browned add in a packet of frozen veggies and a tin of tomatoes and some water. Once the liquid has been simmered down and the veggies are cooked through, take pan off the heat and put in a container to cool.

  • Taco Mince and Salad: Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes, Red Onion, Capsicum, Roast Pumpkin & Sprinkle of Grated Cheese (Featured Image)
