Share your weekly shopping
Thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where you add your weekly slimming world shopping items, so that we can all see what each other buy etc, might give us new ideas for things to try or ask about and will be useful for newbies perhaps on necessities to buy when starting out.
I did a massive post christmas shop today, as we popped to the US, so I had a big sort out of my fridge, freezer and cupboards as well as my herb drawer lol and now it is all stocked to the brim with nice healthy stuff for me to make some yummy sw foods over the coming weeks.
Anyway my shopping list for this week was as follows:
Pink Lady apples (my fav)
Persimmons (haven't tried these before, but they sounded yummy, so thought I would give them a try for something new)
Rutabunga (like a swede)
Peppers (mixed selection)
Yukon Gold Potatoes
1 loaf of whole wheat bread (works out as 57g for 2 slices, an exact HEb portion)
1 pack of whole wheat english muffins (again 57g each and allowed as a HEb here in Canada)
Extra Lean Lamb Mince
Skinned Chicken thighs
(I always make sure freezer is stocked up with portions of meat to take out when needed, so already have, stewing beef, pork chops, beef mince and chicken breasts in freezer)
Reduced fat cheddar cheese
Fat Free Phildelphia
(all of which can be used as a HEa)
0% Greek Yoghurt
some fat free flavoured yoghurts
low fat spread
Store Cupboard Ingredients
Luckily I didnt need much of these items this week, as my cupboard is stocked with whole wheat pasta/rices and pulses, spices etc
But I did get:
Hot curry powder
Raisin Bran cereal (can be used as a HEb)
low calorie hot chocolate (25 calories a sachet)
I was surprised to find Quorn today, so bought some Quorn mince, as it will come in handy for some green days.
Bag of frozen mixed veg
Haagen Daz blueberry and cranberry sorbet (100 calories for 1/2 cup)
100 calorie chocolate pretzels (5 syns)
100 calorie sweet and salty popcorn (5 syns)
onion rings snacks (7 syns for 20 rings)
I tend to drink mostly water nowadays, so you will notice we didnt buy any pop or other type drinks etc.
That was our shop for this week. Looking forward to making a nice big pot of healthy stew tomorrow and also am going to make some sweet potato hummus.
