How often do you go to the grocery store? I remember a time where it seemed like we were there every day, but now I consider it a good week if I only have to go twice. A typical mid-week grocery restock:
Spinach, arugula, romaine, broccoli slaw, cauliflower x 2, broccoli, sweet potatoes, red onions, asparagus, Roma tomatoes, grape tomatoes, pink grapefruit, strawberries, pineapple, ginger, frozen berries, plain yogurt, blue cheese, goat mozza, veggie broth.
I think we get enough plants in our diet? Since we go through produce in no time, I do most of my shopping at Superstore, Costco and Save On. My dollars definitely stretch further at Superstore and Costco, though.
Our fridge is basically a shrine to produce, olives, hot sauce and goat cheese!
Aside from produce…
Flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp protein, Vega, miso, bbq sauce, pickled beans, coconut milk, flax oil, wine, sparkling water, coffee beans. Plus a bunch of random condiments: ketchup, mustard, mayo, jam, etc.
I stock up on meat when it’s on sale, but our freezer is usually stocked with a whole chicken, chicken thighs and drumsticks, ground turkey, ground bison, bison steaks, ground beef, wild salmon, mahi mahi, elk sausages and most recently… bacon! We stopped eating pork a long time ago, but recently found a local/ethical farm to support, so we’re giving it another go. Berries, mango, bananas, falafel, frozen peas and tortillas are hiding in there somewhere too.
I also store a bunch of the ice packs from past Chobani shipments – man are those things awesome for hiking trips.
I’ll leave you with this delicious yet unexpected mahi mahi dish. Normally, I’ll do citrus infused mahi mahi – for fish tacos or an almond meal crust.
The nice thing about mahi mahi is it’s versatility – it’s thick, meaty and not the slightest bit ‘fishy’ tasting. (FYI- fish isn’t supposed to smell or taste ‘fishy’ – if it does, it’s not fresh/don’t eat it!) If you’re on the fence about fish, give this a try.
Into a casserole dish went:
4 ‘individual’ portion mahi mahi fillets
a can of diced (drained) tomatoes
sliced jumbo olives
chopped fresh basil
salt & pepper
Baked at 375F for about 20-25 minutes. I forgot to write down the measurements. Sorry. (Not really) But that’s ok – you can just eyeball the ingredients.
Paired with a mixed green salad…
What are some of your fridge staples? Do you start getting antsy if you’re getting low on certain things? For me, that would be eggs, avocados, cheese and almonds.
