I’m starting the program with some friends and family who are part of my first Challenge Group.  And I must say it really makes it fun!  A few of us have been texting and posting back and forth about what we’re nervous about, how we’re getting ready, recipe ideas and tips.  It adds to the excitement.

Today I went food shopping and washed, chopped and bagged a lot of vegetables.  I loved having the menu to look at while I made the list.  Meal planning is something I always tried to do with dinner and the weeks I actually did it definitely ran more smoothly. Here is my 21 Day Fix Grocery List:

Produce

  • mixed greens
  • baby spinach
  • red peppers
  • baby carrots
  • cucumbers
  • grape tomatoes
  • apples
  • bananas
  • strawberries
  • sweet potatoes

Dairy

  • plain greek yogurt
  • mozzarella cheese
  • cheddar cheese
  • monterey jack cheese

Frozen

  • blueberries
  • mixed peppers
  • green beans
  • broccoli florets
  • chopped broccoli
  • spinach

Breads & Grains

  • oats
  • quinoa
  • sprouted grain bread
  • whole wheat English muffins
  • whole wheat tortillas

Seeds & Stuff

  • sunflower seeds
  • sunbutter

Protein

  • lean ground turkey
  • lean ground beef
  • chicken
  • beef for roast
  • Boar’s Head turkey
  • salmon
  • eggs

Miscellaneous

  • lemon juice
  • lime juice
  • spices
  • unsweetened coconut
  • honey
  • maple syrup
  • coconut oil
  • olive oil

There were a few more things I had to buy for the family, but this was my basic list for my plan for the week. I do most of my food shopping at the local supermarket, but there are a few items I get regularly at Trader Joe’s, Fairway, or Costco. I try to stock up on those things, and some of these items I already had at home. So some of this stuff that can add up (like maple syrup and coconut oil) is stuff you’ll have for a while, and won’t be buying weekly.

As far as organic goes, I do my best. I always buy organic milk and eggs. I also buy organic baby carrots because carrots are the vegetable my children eat the most. Fairway often has nice-looking organic apples at a good price, and we eat a lot of those, so I will buy them when I’m there. I also buy organic ground beef and organic turkey. But honestly, I don’t buy all organic or local. It’s something I hope to do more and more.

As for the workouts- I can’t wait! I haven’t worked out in a while because I came down with strep throat, so I’m very much looking forward to tomorrow’s workout- Total Body Cardio Fix!
