But hay ho we all learn and here I am nearly three years later I have learnt from my mistakes and have a shopping layout that helps me keep in budget as well as come home with healthy yummy food!
- Make a list- I love this part! Each Saturday in my free time I goggle and put together a list of what I wanna make for the following week. I break it down into Dinners, Lunches, Breaky and snacks/cooking items. This helps you to stick to a guide of what you want and above all a budget! Every time I forget to do this list I manage to go over budget...
- Don't shop on an empty stomach- Whenever I do I'm crabby and all I want is bad food! It's plain and simple eat before you go.
- Take your time- Enjoy food shopping, once you find a love for food you'll put more care into what you eat. Have fun with it!
- Key healthy foods to stock up on!
-Veggies- Great for lunches during the week.
-Eggs- This is the best thing to stock up on, I have egg white omelette's for breaky and then I hard boil them for salads, the chooses are endless!
-Nuts- Great sprinkled on yogurt, I always get hazelnuts I absolutely love them.
-Portion size snacks- I always get a few chooses to keep things interesting during the week.
