    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:

    Fruit/Veg

    Pink Lady apples (my fav)
    Bananas
    Pineapple
    Limes
    Lemons
    Persimmons (haven't tried these before, but they sounded yummy, so thought I would give them a try for something new)
    Clementines

    Celery
    Carrots
    Courgettes
    Aubergine
    Red Onions
    Rutabunga (like a swede)
    Peppers (mixed selection)
    Lettuce
    Cucumber
    Roma Tomatoes
    Sweet Potatoesx3
    Yukon Gold Potatoes

    Bakery

    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)

    Meats

    Extra Lean Lamb Mince
    Skinned Chicken thighs
    Turkey Bacon
    (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)

    Dairy/Fresh

    Reduced fat cheddar cheese
    Fat Free Phildelphia
    Parmesan
    (all of which can be used as a HEa)
    0% Greek Yoghurt
    some fat free flavoured yoghurts
    milk
    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:

    Baked Beans
    Chick Peas
    Hot curry powder
    Raisin Bran cereal (can be used as a HEb)
    low calorie hot chocolate (25 calories a sachet)

    Freezer

    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)

    Snacks

    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.

    There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

    Being on this diet is like being on a wagon that goes at speed then slows down, but it may even stop or go in reverse for a short time, so dont get off the wagon! If you get off, get thrown off, or lose your place, run after it! If that doesn't work, get the next immediate wagon. Fight to stay on the wagon it will take you to your destination

    This is a fantastic idea Britmum, and even rumbletummy taking pics is great! I love to drool over food pics lol. On youtube there's this lady in America who does a "haul" video of all the yummy fresh food she buys. I'm all for taking pics of our groceries!

    I'm just getting into the swing of weekly shopping as I've been a daily shopper until now, and with Chritmas and all I couldn't really plan a proper grocery shop. Since Christmas we've been eating leftovers and DH and I are off to NYC tomorrow so I won't have a proper list until we get back next week. Really looking forward to it.

    Thanks for the great thread Britmum, I've really enjoyed looking at people's lists!!

    Ive not done a weekly shop this week because we are still packed with food, both our freezers are full of SW goodies ... mainly meat and quorn really. I have been out today and got some bargains ... Asda are doing the bags of Quorn chicken pieces for 1 instead of 1.99 so i got some of them because the kids eat this as well. I also picked up some parsnips really cheap so i made a lovely spicy parsnip soup for tea. Once Ive done my weekly shop... I will list my list!!!


    1 stone ....
    1 1/2 stone ....
    2 stone ....
    2 1/2 stone ....

    Yep taking pics too is a great idea. I actually thought of that after I had packed it all away. One thing I love about living in Canada is my huge larder cupboard for storing things away. I only had a tiny little cupboard back in the UK. Lol

    This week I bought:

    Fruit/Veg

    Lettuce
    2kg of tomatoes
    cucumber
    onions (white and red)
    spring onions
    Melon
    Blueberries
    Grapes
    Pineapple
    Pears
    Tinned grapefruit (Non S/W/Synable)
    Aubergine
    Courgettes
    Garlic
    Fresh Herbs
    Ginger
    Baking potatoes
    Oranges
    Apples (Cripps Pinks and Braeburns, Pink ladies are 2 for 4!!!!)
    Peppers

    Meat
    Lean lamb legs for Lamb Souvlaki
    Belly pork (Non S/W/Synable)
    1 x Chicken
    Good Quality cold meat for omlettes etc

    Dairy
    Milk (Semi skimmed)
    Quark
    Natural yoghurt (fat free)
    fat free wholegrain yoghurt (Non S/W/Synable)
    fat free strawb Onken
    Eggs - about 30
    Feta cheese - 10% fat stuff
    Halloumi

    Bread
    Got 3 loaves of Burgen Soya Linseed (Non S/W/Synable) (?)

    Misc/naughty off plan foods:
    1 jar peanut butter
    1 jar Jam
    1 jar salsa
    1 packet biscuits (for Morning sickness)
    Blue Dragon Stir fry sauce (2 pouches)

    So not exactly a SW list in its entirety but I'm not on plan at the moment and finding it hard to plan for what I do want due to nausea and being picky. It's still a fairly healthyish list

    Staples in the cupboard are:
    Frozen veggies
    Pasta
    Rice
    Noodles
    Beans, both baked and dried
    stock cubes
    chickpea dahl tinned

    Trying to eat less meat/lighter this week and work way through cupboard but I have such cravings for fruit and salad. I dont really want anything else.

    keep this lists coming

    I tried the persimmon fruit I bought last night (never had it before)

    They are really nice. Look a bit like a tomato when you slice it, but tastes quite similar to a mango I thought.

    You can get different sorts though, so not sure they all taste the same. I had the hachiya variety.
