First off I want to say thank you so much for all your kind comments on here and Instagram on my One Year Postpartum check in! It was so so nice to read all of them! You ladies are the best! Sticking with the healthy and clean eating kick… as promised my eating clean grocery cart check in.
As mentioned in yesterdays post I have been eating this way for over 8 years now. It was a little bit of an adjustment in the beginning but nutrition has been a big passion of mine for FOREVER so I think that helped. Some of you who have been following The Honeybee for awhile now may remember I was going back to school to become a registered dietician before I became pregnant. That dream has been placed on the back burner for the time being as I want to focus all my energy on Ava (and believe me she takes a lot of it ;). Im hoping to follow through with that dream in a couple years! For now I may try an online program to get certified but i’ll fill you in more on that after I research it a little more. Okay back to the grocery cart! These are all pretty much staples I buy every week (switching them up a bit so we don’t get burned out). All of these were purchased at Trader Joe’s and cost around $100!
We all know if we have a healthy stocked fridge we’re much more likely to make better food choices. I do try to purchase mainly organic but note not ALL of it is. Having quick and easy protein packed snacks on hand are a must for me! Hardboiled eggs, string cheese, hummus, tuna fish and chicken sausage are all great lean protein options!
Next up veggies veggies veggies! You can’t go wrong with veggies in our house! They are super filling, have tons of nutrients and are low in calories….win win! I cut them up to munch on before dinner, steam them for ava, or use them for juicing. The more variety and color the better! Load em up ladies!
Berries are a great snack as well! A cup of strawberries is only around 50 calories and a cup of blueberries is about 80 calories! I am a huge fan of greek yogurt! It has probiotics, protein and much less sugar than regular yogurt. We’ve been hooked on this FAGE brand for years!
