My Shopping List for the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan


Here is the funny thing. Fabio and I's Food budget for the week is about 100.00 for the two of us. We mainly shop Costco and King Soopers for what we need.

I hear all the time that eating healthy is too expensive. We eat pretty clean with the exception of a Saturday splurge (usually a frozen pizza)

Last Saturday, we purchased PROCESSED food... things like Cheezits, cookies, cereal, frozen prepared meals.... Not healthy at all filled with preservatives, artificial things.
Our bill last Saturday. $250.00.

Folks, eating for convenience (let's face it, we buy these things because they are quick and easy) is WAY MORE EXPENSIVE than buying simple ingredients and making your own food.

Here is my typical shopping list for one week's worth of food for my 21 Day Fix Meal Plan

1 pound Lean Ground Turkey (Foster Farms- Costco. This is a 4 pack or a month's worth ) $17.00/4=  4.25
18  Eggs (also from Costco) $3.75
1 Large Container of 2% Greek Yogurt, Plain (King Soopers) $ 3.85
1 Bag of Organic Frozen Berries (From Costco) $4.80
6 Small Zucchinis (King Soopers ) .99 pound or about $6.50
Bunch of Bananas (Costco) $ 3.65
3 Gallons Almond Milk, Unsweetened (Costco and this lasts for a month) $4.00 or $1 week
1 Jar of Natural Almond Butter (King Soopers for a month) $ 6.70 or $1.75 week
1 large bag of broccoli (Costco this lasts two weeks) $5.35 or 2.70 week
1 Bunch of Asparagus (Costco) $4.75
1 bag of Raw Almonds (Costco this lasts two MONTHS) $ 20.00 or $2.50 Week
1 Bag of Whey Protein (Costco this lasts TWO MONTHS) $ 39.95 or $5.00 Week
Quaker Oats (Costco big box with lasts 4 months) $8.00 or $1.00 Week

Total weekly budget for one person- $45.50 for me to eat healthy. 

Seriously People....  I am never buying the whole, "eating healthy is too expensive again."
