Monday: Trader Joe’s Haul

In a previous Orangetheory class I used to take, the instructor always reiterated to us to “Never Miss a Monday” and I have tried to make it a rule for myself. It helps me get the week off to a great and productive start. So tonight I hit up a new class at Kick@55. It is located in the River North area here in Chicago and it was a ton of fun – but very challenging! It was formatted as a bootcamp switching between floor and spin circuits. Major sweat workout!

After class, I walked over to Trader Joe’s to pickup my supplies for the week. I was able to pickup a bunch of my favorite items for the week spending a little over $38! I try to plan my meals out before I hit the store (knowing I will have those hungry eyes), taking an inventory of what I already have and what I may need.

On the list this week:

  • 2 bags of Spinach
  • 1 bag of Kale
  • Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Bag of Fuji Apples
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 bag of Sweet Onions
  • 1 bag of Parsley
  • Chicken Breasts
  • 1 bag of Colorful Roasting Carrots
  • 2 Red Peppers
  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 bag of Cherry Tomatoes


Check back and I will publish my first recipe for the lentil and vegetable bowl I made this evening with a homemade dressing!
