Two Week Challenge - Shopping List #1

My friend, Jaclyn, has asked me to post my shopping list so that she can follow along and me my partner across the country in the two week challenge. I'm counting on you Jaclyn! Keep me updated!

So here is the shopping list for today - I'm thinking this will get me through at least 3 days, maybe a week.

**1/23 update - I made the breakfast burritos which were a slimmed down version of this recipe, and was unimpressed. I have also decided that tortillas will not be in the diet. So I have replace the low carb breakfast burritos which an egg white, spinach, feta scramble.

Here is the plan:

Mornings: Green Monster Smoothie or low carb breakfast burritos Egg White, Spinach, Feta Scramble

For the Green Monster Smoothie:

- baby spinach (big bag)
- almond milk (unsweetened vanilla)
- vanilla extract (optional)
- peanut butter (optional)
- frozen berries (optional)

For the Low Carb Breakfast Burritos:
- low carb tortillas (I know, they probably count as a processed food, but I'm making these burritos for Adam and freezing them and I'll probably end up eating them too)
- eggs
- egg beaters (egg whites)
- low fat cheese
- turkey sausage or vegetarian sausage

For the Egg White, Spinach, Feta Scramble:
- egg Beaters (or any egg whites)
- baby spinach (get a big bag and use for both this and the smoothie)
- non fat feta cheese (will also be used for green beans for dinner)

Lunch: Vegetarian Salad or Chicken Tortilla Soup

For the Vegetarian Salad:
- romain hearts or romaine lettuce
- can of kidney beans
- can of garbanzo beans
- carrots
- can of corn
- tomatoes
- zucchini (pick up a few zucchini's they will come in handy throughout the week)
- low fat mozzarella
- lite italian dressing or make your own

For the Chicken Tortilla Soup
- chicken breast or chicken tenders
- can of fire roasted tomatoes with green chiles
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 zucchini
- 1 brown onion
- 1 large pasilla chile (Not sure if I'll find this, might settle for anaheim chile)
- 1 lime
- 1 avocado
- leftover corn from vegetarian salad

Dinner: Marinated Chicken, garlic / feta green beans, brown rice
- Chicken breast
- favorite marinade or my Garlic Honey Lemon marinade (2 lemons, honey, olive oil, garlic)
- green beans
- low fat or non fat feta
- garlic
- lemon
- brown rice (I use Trader Joe's frozen brown rice)

Dinner: Stew
- lean stew meat (beef)
- potatoes (I'm using fingerlings)
- onion
- carrots
- 1 packet Italian seasoning mix
- 1 packet brown gravy mix
- 1 packet Ranch seasoning mix

- nuts
- any fruit (I'm doing grapefruit and berries)
- any veggies
- roasted sweet potato rounds

Alright, so that's my plan for now. I'm heading to the grocery store!

Updates and recipes as the week goes on!

Peace, love, groceries, and happiness!


  1. yay! thank you!!! I'll have to be one day behind you - it's bed time for me. So you plan on having the same breakfast and lunches, and just switching the dinner every so often? And wait - you're making the tortillas and freezing them or the burrito itself? The pot roast - slow cooker?

    Forgive me - I am new to this cooking thing - but I must say, I can for dang sure follow a recipe! ;)

    EEKS! I am excited!

  2. Changed the wording. It's green monster smoothie OR breakfast burrito. And salad OR soup. Making the burritos and then freezing them. Recipes to come! Pot Roast - which I think is going to be more like a stew is in the slow cooker. I'm excited! xo

  3. This looks great!! Excited to start!
