What I Eat

Ever wanted to peak into someone’s pantry? Here’s your chance. 🙂

Now, I consider myself a relatively healthy eater. Or an aware eater at least. Mostly because I cook all my meals myself.

When I went shopping for the week, I decided to see if this is actually true.

I live with a cat and a flatmate who definitely are not included in these grocery bags. They fend for themselves. 😉

So. Here’s what a single gal can consume in a week. No alterations. Just a pretty regular shopping bag for me.


Weekend Groceries

Here’s what I arrived back home with. Even though I love cooking (and I’m good at it) I’m still mostly a routine eater and going through a busy time at work, so there are a few more frozen products here than the norm.

It also doesn’t include the staples I always have in the kitchen cupboards, such as EVO, buckwheat, brown rice, quinoa, lentils, quinoa pasta, flaxseed, buckwheat and rice flours. There are a few cans of beans and chopped tomatoes around as well.

Here’s the protein for the week:


Half a dozen eggs, can of wild salmon, two pieces of chicken breast and four tenderised chicken breast burgers. Should eat less chicken and more fish…

The veggies:


Tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage (I love raw cabbage) and eggplant. (My spinach and broccoli reserves are full, as in the freezer is packed.)

The frozen mixes:


Four bags of potato-broccoli-bell pepper-leek-mushroom (my favourite) and one of a wok veggie mix.

The fruits:


I’m a huge apple lover, and here you have three different kinds of apples (I’m on a Junami kick atm) a couple of bananas and lemons for adding to water, salads and chicken seasoning.

Various odds and ends:


I mostly drink tap water, but for when I’m in the mood for something fizzy, I like to keep a bottle of carbonised natural mineral water around. Same with OJ. Here’s also a box of oatmeal, almonds and a backup of Orange Pepper, which I love to use with my chicken.


I promise. There are weeks I buy no frozen stuff at all.

Anybody else up for the pantry challenge?
