Go to grocery list

I had a few people message me and ask me what my go-to items at the grocery store are. Typically, I use my Sundays as grocery shopping days to limit the number of times that I need to go during the week to grab all those little things that I might run out of or forget!

So, I wanted to share with you a list of items that I am gravitated towards when grocery shopping. Ofcourse this is a fairly big list, and my trips every week do not consist of purchasing EVERY item on this list, but I will rarely stray away from the items listed.

Quick tip: stick to the perimeters of grocery stores as much as possible! This is where all the freshest and most raw foods are. As soon as you start heading down the aisles, the food items become more processed and unnatural.

Yes, wow, there’s definitely a lot of items on this list, but the idea is to choose the things you like from it and stick with only the foods that you see!!

MY favourites of the bunch (the ones I find myself purchasing most often) are sweet potatoes, oats, alllll fruit but mainly bananas and apples and berries, allllllllll vegetables but mainly carrots, celery and broccoli, lettuce and spinach, yogurt, eggs, salmon and chicken. OH and peanut butter!! I go through that stuff very fast. (oh naturale, ofcourse).

Workout

My workout of the day was a chest and tricep day in the Jamie Eason program. I’m on week 2 now, hoorah! I’m still finding it great and I’m honestly noticing a difference in my body. I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without incorporating this amount of strength and weight training into my regime. I love love love it and feel stronger already!

This is so random, but I follow Ipsy on Instagram and also wanted to show you their post with you:

treat yo self

I lol’d! And needless to say, I double tapped! I treat myself to the max. What’s a life without great food indulgences!

What I’m into now../Things I’m Loving Monday 7

I got the idea to post this segment from the wonderful Julie Flagan over at pbfingers.com. It’s a little survey type of blog which goes over some cute topics and is a fun read. It’s summing up the “things that I’m into” at this moment in my life based on the topics given. I’m also hoping you’ll participate and respond with your personal answers to the things you’re currently into! I would LOVE to hear it. It’s sort of similar to my regular weekly blog post of ‘Things I’m Loving’, so I thought I’d post it as a combo!

Celebrity on Instagram

–> hands down, Kaley Cucuo-Sweeting. I have a bit of a girl crush on her and that all I want is for her to be my best friend. She is an animal lover who posts a number of pictures of her adorable adoptive pets (which I love because I too adopted my Tanner!) and she posts hilarious – and REAL – things about her life. Think-late night McDonald’s trips and junk food. Yay! Turns out celebrities eat like real people! I’ve also always enjoyed the wonderful postings of Karena and Katrina from toneitup.

My wonderful and dearest friend, Lisa! She’s a fitness and health addict like myself, so she’s always posting her yummy recipes and workouts which keep me motivated and proud of her!

Personally, I’m not much of a cocktail gal. Typically in the summer I stick to Caesars, but now with the seasons changing and weather getting a littler chillier, I’d have to turn my preference over to a warmer drink- probably coffee and peppermint schnapps or baileys.

food indulgence

Cinnamon raisin bread is my absolute favourite.

Also peanut butter.

Also these chickpea brownies.

beauty products

Benefit-Benetint-rose-tinted-lip-cheek-stain-review-with-swatches

This new benefit cheek and lip tint in dusty rose! I never thought I would like this product as much as I do, but it gives such a nice natural looking glow and stays all day.

way to wind down
