I get asked a lot of times about our groceries, what we buy, how much we spend, etc. I even get stopped at the grocery store sometimes from someone making a comment about the contents in my grocery cart.
After my shopping trip yesterday I decided to display all my produce on my table in a color pattern and take pictures for a blog post. I will share with you the produce I bought for my family of four for about a week. Some items will be gone faster and other items may last longer….I am sure you know what I am talking about!

1 package of pre cut watermelon: $3.60
4 packages of organic raspberries: 2 packs for $6 so $12 total (yes, I know $12 bucks for raspberries???)

These items are not the only items I purchase….we do eat more than just produce! I also purchased items such as: organic whole grain bread, organic pasta sauce, organic rice, organic coffee (yes, I do drink coffee), organic eggs, sunflower seeds, almonds, sweet potato chips, organic tortilla chips, salsa, organic cereal, almond milk, coconut milk, spelt pretzels, organic crackers, organic black beans and Cholula sauce(Love this stuff!)
I will also add that I did purchase extras this week because as a family we have been juicing every day. I needed more carrots, lemons, and greens than what I would normally buy. I also didn’t need to buy apples (stocked up on organic ones at Trader Joe’s the week before), and I also had parsley and watercress from the week before.
celery, golden beets, carrots, apples, lemons, parsley, watercress, and rainbow chard!
The kids LOVED it!!
