EAT MORE, restaurants

EAT MORE Shopping List 2

Thought I would follow up with another shopping list based on my EAT MORE meal planning series. This week I ended up buying mostly produce and a few odds and ends to fill out the standard pantry items listed in my cheat sheet. I also listed some of the items I already had in my pantry/freezer in italics just to refresh your memory.

This is what my groceries looked like when I got home. Basically a forest.

And I was pretty proud with the sum total of this epic grocery haul…

Not too shabby…

I’ve already busted out the crockpot and I can’t wait to share some of the recipes I have planned with you later this week.

In the meantime, here is how I’ve been fueling up lately.

 This was the a meal I made at home using the dregs of my last grocery shop: 

1/2 smashed Japanese sweet potato (love these)
tofu & broccoli stem scramble
small mixed green salad with pepitas & pecans

Some restaurant fare at Sadie’s Vegan Diner

Mixed bean chili served on greens & topped with a poached egg and a bottle of hot sauce
…and yes I ordered the poached egg on the side, then put it on top. Reminded me of the Pisto with Egg I used to eat in Spain…I should really whip up a batch of that…SO good. 

Valentine’s Day dinner, anyone? 

I went to to town at Sushi Shop . My plate (pictured at the back) included veggie sushi, avocado/bbq eel dragon roll, salmon sashimi & bean curd/shitake mushroom sushi. Plus an unpictured green salad & half a bowl of miso soup.

I’m off to make some lunch with all these new groceries then heading over to Social Media Week, Toronto for some really great sounding workshops geared towards the uber-nerdy media savvy. Hope you all have a happy, productive Thursday! 🙂

    I’m still pretty new to your blog, but was wondering where you buy groceries from? That’s a pretty ridiculous amount of food for the price! Love the blog!

      I bought these at a discount grocery store very near where I live. I save a lot of money by shopping the perimeter of the store first and only buying a few select canned/prepared items. I also try to buy what’s on sale as often as possible (eg. i would rarely buy fresh strawberries in winter but this week they were on special).
      I also buy quality produce at the organic farmers market (costs more) and the fruit & veggie markets in Chinatown (about the same to less expensive).
      Hope that helps! Thanks for reading 🙂
