I wanted to share this grocery list and meals with you because I know most of you wanted to see it. I had made this for my sister who is trying to lose the pounds after she had her first baby 2 months ago. You know how it is when you’re just itching to lose the weight after baby. I just know for me, I really just want to feel good again. So I gave her a shopping list and a few meals that she can add in to start out. This isn’t a full on meal plan, but one day of meals to give her an idea, and I honestly eat the same things day in and day out and switch it up sometimes, but for the most part I’m a creature of habit and eat the same. Once I find something thats good, I stick to it. Consistency is key to creating better habits for yourself.
I didn’t want to overwhelm her with a strict plan, so thats why I say ADD IN. The more good you add into your diet, the less room you have for junk. I just believe that the more simple we keep things, the easier it is.
I used to count macros back in the day, but it started to become an obsession in a bad way. I looked good, but I just didn’t want to attach so much energy into that. I’m trying now to just surrender and tune into what my body needs, and really listen and be aware of that. It’s definitely taken me a lot of practice though and it’s something I’m still working at! I find myself sometimes going back to wanting to count sometimes because It makes me feel out of control, and I have a controlling personality, so it’s really helping me learn to let go and just listen.
So for the grocery list! I’m sharing a few recipes from this grocery list. I’m just sharing to give you ideas, you can take whatever you want from this, but I know this plan works for me and I think we all need to just try new things until we find our thing, and sometimes what worked for us last month or year, isn’t working now, so we have to keep pivoting and trying so we can grow and learn from the process.

DRINKS TO GET THROUGH THE DAY
I love to sip on Spindrift! Its carbonated and lightly sweetened with fruit, all natural! I get it in bulk at costco. I also love my afternoon coffee with Oat milk. I did a post a while back on my 3 Skinny Hacks, and still stand by this! I also drink a lot of water! I have a large hydroflask to get me through the day and its the only way I’ll drink any water. I’l forget if I don’t keep refilling.
As far as having drinks, like coffee, teas, spindrift, I feel like these are just my little rituals that get me excited everyday. I don’t necessarily NEED the caffeine, its just more of a ritual for me and something to look forward to.
Hope this helps give you ideas! Let me know if you have any questions!
