Grocery List: Sticking to Healthier & Fresh Options
Here's a list of my staple ingredients that will be used in the majority of my recipes. It's so important to have a shopping list when going to the grocery store. Why? Because failing to plan is planning to fail. There's so many unhealthy options at the store. A list will keep you focused and intentional on sticking to healthier food options. It's a struggle, I know...but you can do it and so can I :)
