The Weekly Shop

I thought I'd be fun to show you what we bought when we went food shopping over the weekend. We normally do a "small shop" (lidl) every week and then a "big shop" (lidl and tesco) every second week. We try to eat as well as we can, so lots of fruits and veggies, not too many processed foods and organic and Irish when possible! It really depends on what we need, sometimes we need more in one shop than we do in another, so as you'd expect what we buy changes constantly. None the less, here is what we picked up from our "big shop".

Aubergines x2, field mushrooms, lemons, limes, spring onions, bananas, apples, blueberries (in wide shot), almonds x2, spinach x2, baby asparagus and tender stem broccoli, clementines.

 Belvita breakfast milk & cereals, flour tortilla wraps, halloumi, new potatoes, ground cumin, ground coriander, bulgar wheat, butterbeans x2, chickpeas x2, raisins, pumpkin seeds, strawberry jam, low-fat milk x2, orange juice x2, cooking olive oil.

And finally, free range eggs, pure dairy free sunflower, Quorn chicken pieces, fresh coriander, pak choi, avocado x2

We normally pick up fruit and veg from Lidl, our local one always has a great supply of organic and Irish produce. We then pick up any extras that we need in Tesco. Items we very frequently buy but didn't need to pick up this week: peppers, onions, garlic, ginger, cheese and meat for Isaac, salad leaves, bread flour and tomatoes. I'm sure there are other ones I'm forgetting but I hope you enjoyed a look at what we bought this week. If you have a blog, I'd love to see what different and interesting things you buy. Hope you enjoyed a look at what we bought!
