Grocery hauls are amongst my favourite things to watch. I absolutely love being nosy and seeing what people buy and cook every day. I find a lot of inspiration from watching home cooks. While I don't pretend to do anything more than feed myself with things I enjoy, I thought it'd be nice to show a little bit of my food purchases and list the meals I intend on using them for.
Nectarines - for snacking, breakfast or as a dessert at the end of a meal. I cut one up into quarters and eat that with a fork. Those happen to be seasonal, but I like all sorts of fruit and always have at least two types of fruit in the house (right now it's that and oranges).
Baby carrots - for snacking, sprinkled with sea salt.
Frozen sliced courgettes - with a piece of meat for dinner (I bought sausages this week)
Baby greens - for salads along with shredded red cabbage (pictured) and deli pork slices (pictures) and I'll generally eat that with a piece of bread (pictured) or throw in some cooked rice (I always cook a big batch to eat throughout the week).
Compotes - for dessert, snacking or breakfast. I use them as fruit as those are just pure mixed fruit with no sugar added (I pick a different flavour each time, these are apple/pear, apple/banana and apple/raspberry).
Coriander to put in rice with beans, homemade salsa and homemade guacamole (hence the avocados)
Tomatoes for a Caprese salad with mozzarella (pictured) and basil (pictured)
Eggs for eggs on toast or egg and avocado toast and as a protein in salad. I'm also often seen eating over-hard or over-easy eggs with ratatouille (pictured, I buy it frozen, in which case I'll dip bread into the runny yolks).
Apples for snacking, breakfast, or dessert, and I'm making a simple apple crumble this week.
Milk mostly for tea.
Greek yoghurt for Chipotle
100% pure fruit juice (I like clementine and sweet apple the best) for breakfast.
Butter - a staple, and I only buy salted, in this case I really needed it for crumpets
Brie cheese - Always in the fridge to add to salads, eat with bread for breakfast. I buy different cheeses every time.
Lunches and dinners:
Salads with deli pork and bread/rice
Eggs and ratatouille with bread
Sausages and courgettes
usually I have fruit - either a piece of whole fruit, a compote, a glass of juice or homemade freshly squeezed orange juice - and bread with something to accompany it
Crumpets with butter
Avocado and egg toast
Bread and butter
Bread and cheese
