So what am I making for the week? How did my zero waste grocery shopping go? This week was a pretty produce heavy week considering I need to stock up on baby food. The baby loves about everything I put into his mouth so I'm going to keep filling him up with mineral rich produce.
Aside from the dreaded, nearly unavoidable produce stickers and the twisty ties, this entire haul was basically trash free - when I account for recycling the tin and glass jar towards the bottom.
The meal plan for the week is...
- Veggie Noodle Soup
- Vegan Tacos
- Kabobs with broccoli salad and mash
- Vegan BLTs with egg plant bacon
- and LOTS of baby food!
I shop with my cloth produce bags and larger reusable grocery bags only. I personally do not like shopping with glass jars - just not for me, especially with a baby. I get my produce naked and I plan my meals to be as plant based as possible. Easy peasy. What I can't get package free or if I'm just feeling lazy and don't want to soak beans, I buy them in a tin. I know not the best, but I can cheat now and then, right? I also opt for things in glass like salsa when I just don't have the time to make it from scratch - all organic of course. I only plan for dinners, snacks, breakfasts, and baby food as we usually always have leftovers that will become lunches.
And what did this cost me for a week's worth of groceries for a family of 3 - about $60.
And that's it for this week. Do you like seeing my grocery hauls? Would you like for me to keep posting them?
What are you having for dinner?
