Vegetarian Challenge Food Shopping

Hey loves!

So, as I plan for this 14 Days No Meat Vegetarian Challenge, I realize that I need to go food shopping soon. I better get this shopping list in order. I will not be going crazy in the supermarket getting every veggie in site - I need to start slow. If you don't know what your doing either, I suggest you go slow with me. Lol!

First, think of what meals you want in the first few days. Google recipes and see what you might want to try. Make sure your list has items that are rich in vitamins, Protein, Iron, Zinc and Fiber. We want to make sure our meals are balanced so we get the most out of this experience. Also, I will post here and the Facebook Page as I come across recipes or ideas that I love. I know I will be on my smoothie game and I think I will be trying steamed veggies and grains and salads and potatoes maybe. to my list:
  • Bag of leafy greens (baby spinach, kale, chard) for salad, cooking and smoothie 
  • Red Cabbage 
  • Sweet peppers
  • Onions
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Wholewheat Couscous 
  • Quinoa
  • Red skin potatoes 
  • Plantains
  • Potatoes
  • Mushroom
  • Salad dressing 
  • Egg
  • Frozen mix fruits for smoothies. 
  • Navel oranges and tangerines
  • Banana 

**pardon my crabby handwriting. hehe!
I often drink a homemade smoothie few times a week. Maybe now I will make smoothies more often as they do fill me up and give me a glass full of goodness. I will post pics and recipes for some of my smoothies when I make them.

What will you be shopping for?
