Happy Sunday! I hope you all had time to relax and do what you love this weekend. Every Sunday, I make sure to hit my favorite grocery store, Central Market to pick up everything I need for the week ahead. Now, my haul varies depending on what I have the next week but there are a few staples that always land in my cart. So, to give you an idea of what a typical sunday in my cart looks like, I’ve listed my top 10 staples I can’t live without. Here goes!
1.) Fresh Bread-
To me, there is truly nothing better than a fresh loaf of delicious, wholesome bread to start the week on the right foot. My go-to lately has been the Multi-grain from Central Market’s bakery.
Lemons are something I use daily. In the morning, I always start with my warm lemon water. I also use them for simple vinaigrettes or to preserve cut avocado!
3.) Onion, Shallot & Garlic-
Now, I know this is technically 3 items, but I use them together so often that I think of them as being one unit. To me, these ingredients are the perfect flavorful base to any dish. I make sure to have these on hand so I can grab them whenever I need.
4.) Apples & Pears-
Fruit is a staple in my kitchen. Every morning I wake up craving some kind of fruit, so I always make sure I’m fully stocked. These also make perfect mid-day snacks, as they are easy to grab and take on-the-go.
An obvious choice… avocados always are the first thing to land in my cart. Packed with flavor and healthy fat, I make sure to snack on these daily!
Kombucha is a new staple for me. I’ve always heard all the rave for it but have just recently gotten into it. This (Health Ade) brand is my absolute favorite! They offer a wide variety of delicious flavors that are incredibly good for your body.
Greens are essential for lots of my cooking. To me, they are one of the simplest ways to incorporate loads of nutrients into any dish. I prefer to have mixed greens, arugula, kale (for smoothies) and romaine on hand.
8.) Grass-fed, Pasture-raised Butter-
Yes, you read correctly.. butter! Butter is something long shamed for being unhealthy and unnecessary but, if you’ve every tasted butter, you most likely disagree! This flavorful kitchen staple is something I use in many recipes. Now, not all butter is made the same. I make sure to get grass-fed, pasture-raised butter to ensure the highest quality and nutrition possible.
9.) Pasture-raised eggs-
I typically eat eggs every few days, if not daily. They’re a nutrition powerhouse and a blank canvas for flavor. My personal preference is organic, pasture-raised. Their flavor is incomparable!
10.) Grape Tomatoes
Tomatoes are a new favorite of mine. They’re perfect with eggs, to top a fresh salad or to snack on throughout the day. I love the vibrant color and flavor these little gems offer!
I hope you enjoyed this quick look inside my grocery cart this week. Wishing you all a restful and relaxing Sunday/ week ahead. See you soon!
