Weekly food shopping

I haven’t put up any reviews the past few days as I had an Image skincare lightening peel Tuesday so, I wanted to give my skin a break from makeup and then I woke up with the flu yesterday morning. 

I only have a bare understanding of nutrition and portion control but I do get asked a lot about what I eat since I started doing personal training sessions etc. 

I try to stay as healthy as possible but if my friends are going for dinner I will go with them, I don’t completley restrict myself. I haven’t been great for sticking to it the last two weeks, but this flu has shown me my immune system is down and thats definitely from not eating as well as I had been.


This week I got: 

  • Dunnes Chicken breasts 
  • Ballyfree Turkey Rashers 
  • Mallons Butchers Low Fat and Gluten Free Sausages
  • Dennys fire and smoke turkey breast slices
  • Avonmore Feel Good Tomato and Basil Soup
  • Brocolli
  • Dunnes Cut fresh vegetable mix 
  • Baby potatoes
  • Fage Total 0% greek yoghurt
  • Keelings raspberries
  • Keelings strawberries 
  • Keelings blueberries 
  • Dunnes green grapes
  • Dunnes oranges
  • Jordans simply granola cruncky baked oats
  • Flahavans progress oats
  • Tesco free range eggs
  • Larkins wholemeal soda bread 
  • Jacobs rice cakes
  • Tesco wholewheat pasta
  • Roma wholegrain rice 
  • Lee Strand skim milk
  • Lindt 85% dark chocolate
  • Propercorn lightly sea salted 

On a normal day I would eat 3 meals – breakfest, lunch and dinner. These would consist of meat, green vegetables and carbohydrates max. 30 grams in each meal. I would also eat 3 snacks 2-3 hours after each meal, these range from 2 rice cakes, fruit and greek yoghurt, an orange and 3 squares of dark chocolate. 

I suppose if I was to give anyone a tip who is trying to eat healthy, it would be to meal prep. If I’m tired after work and don’t have a meal prepared I would gladly have a pizza I can just throw in the oven.
