I like to call this ‘I-have-no-food-left-it’s-the-end-of-term-pasta’
Pesto pasta with spinach, cucumber, half an avocado, a few bits of artichoke from @aldiuk, with hummus, chilli flakes and lots of black pepper on top —————————————————
I give up 🤷♀️ all that is left in my fridge now is half a jar of mango chutney and I still have another three days before I go home from Christmas!

Pure and simple (that’s a Dolly Parton song ☺️) Empty out the fridge style lunch: • spinach • shredded parm • soft boiled egg • avocado • crushed black pepper • ACV + grain mustard + olive oil dressing • sriracha 🔥 (not pictured, 4 @ggfiber crackers)
Got this gorgeous gluten free bundle of goodness with dinner last night! They’re a gift with every order this week! Just had to decide whether to top it with avocado or marmalade for breakfast this morning🤣. Did you know Indy also do a range of kitchen essentials too, including milk, free range eggs, butter, Freestone’s porridge and conserves? Perfect add ons when the cupboard is bare and you can’t get to the shops! #glutenfreebread#breakfastsorted#familyfood#emptyfridge#independencemkt#stressfreefood
Just came back from vacation and the fridge was empty. Made some dinner with what I had around. Pan fried some fish I caught from Florida, delicata squash and red onions with avocado oil, a side of garlic stuff olives and pickles. Makes a perfectly simple balanced meal. It pays to have some dried & frozen food, food that can keep in the fridge for an extended period of time and non refrigerated fruit &veggies around.

Vide frigo !!!
Nous avons dans les options commander à souper ce soir, puisque nous étions parties tout le week-end ! Finalement j’ai vidé mon frigo et j’ai fait; -soupe aux légumes et orges, -bol de crudités et -soufflés aux œufs avec du « genre bacon » au poulet et un restant de viandes froides « naturelles ».
En choisissant de faire le souper, nous fait de bons choix, les lunchs du lendemain et j’en ai profiter pour nettoyer mon frigo et inscrire ce qui manquait à ma liste d’épicerie 📝-Gaspillage 🚫
Je sais que c’est simple mais parfois on oublie que la simplicité,rend productif 👌🏻 #emptyfridge#veggiesoup#healthyfood#simplicity
Creativity happens when I run out of food! 🙌🏼. Who else waits until the fridge has echo to finally go grocery shopping? Today’s breakfast is an odd but yummy mixture of sweet potato, leftover chicken, mushrooms 🍄 and parmesan. And I add some fresh thyme to get my daily greens 🤣 .
Check my stories 📽 later today if you’d like to go grocery shopping with me. I’ll take you to @wholefoods , @traderjoes and @sprouts .
Up since 6.20 am waiting for Tesco to open. I could blame my empty fridge for that...🤷🏼♀️🤔I really want to make a curry from the scratch today and for that I need more things than a broccoli and coconut milk😐that’s all I have left👍 #groceryshopping#curry#teatime#emptyfridge#earlymornings
Came home earlier to a fridge that was bare apart from yesterday’s broccoli and coconut soup and half a tub of Greek yoghurt (not counting all the jars and bottles of condiments I have in there 🤓). So the soup was pretty much my only option for a quick warm lunch 🍵 Decided to add some pulses and saw that I had tins of butter beans, chickpeas and azuki (adzuki) beans in the cupboard. Textural me didn’t want chickpeas today for some reason 🤷🏼♀️ so it was a toss up between the butter beans and the azuki. My tastebuds were clamouring for the sweetness of the butter beans but I realized the azuki would add more colour to the otherwise plain pale green soup…and then my dessert devil 😈 whispered that the rest of the tin might be nice made into a sweet bean sauce to go over the Greek yoghurt for a snack later...so it was an easy choice 😅 I also rehydrated some wakamé for extra goodness and colour while I was heating up the soup and served the lot with araré balls for some crunch. Have no idea how it really tasted but it was good enough for me on this windy and rainy day 🌧 and the colours were kind of festive 🎄🎄🎄 Happy Friday everyone 💟
Jau ryte žinojau, kad reikia suvartoti brokolį, ruošiausi virti sriubą, bet kaip visada gavosi kitaip. 😃 Žalia bulvių košė, man kaip nušvitimas toptelėjo galvon! primena lyg tai nuo saulės pažaliavusias bulves, išvirtas ir dar grūstas košei 😄 Troškiniui buvau užmačiusi paskutinius iš kaimo parsivežtus, namie sirpintus pomidorus. 🍅 Nutariau, kad šiandien ne vegetarinė diena tad rūkytos kaimiškos dešrelės puikiai tiko troškiniui. Morkos, svogūnai, žirneliai - priedai, kad nebūtų per nelyg niūrų ir šiaip dievinu daržovių asorti. Šaldytuvo valymas - atliktas.
First shop of the month is usually the biggest, and eats up about half of my monthly budget. But that's ok, because bulk buying helps me save $$ over time.
For our family of 4 (incl 2 kids, ages 5 and 3) I budget $600 per month for groceries, excluding household items. Today I spent $85 at the produce market (first 2 pics) and $202 at Costco (last 2 pics). __________________________________
We used up most fresh fruits and veggies in the house, except for a few apples and carrots and beets. So a big stock up was in order. This week we got a 40 lb box of oranges ($15), a case of 🍓($10 for 8 lbs), bag of mandarins ($5), 2 bags of apples ($1.50 ea), a few persimmons, 🍌🍐🍇. Oranges should store well in the basement until we make more room in the fridge. Strawberries will be used fresh and at least 4-5 lbs frozen for smoothies.
For veggies I couldn't pass the cherry tomatoes (2 boxes for $5), baby 🥒 (2 bags for $4), 🍄 (2 lbs for $4), squash and zucchini (both $0.69/lb). Potatoes, onions and cabbage are all inexpensive staples for us.
Costco haul included both everyday staples (lunch meats, dairy, eggs, spinach, yogurt) and some extra items. I needed sugar, butter, choc chips for holiday baking. School bake sale is in 2 days, and that's just the beginning of the season! And tomorrow I'm making a birthday dinner for my father in law, so grabbed a pork roast and buns (to make pulled pork sandwiches) and a cake 🎂. I could have ended up with much bigger bill at the checkout, but stopped myself from throwing stuff in the cart. I will probably do another Costco run for holiday items (cheeses, frozen appetizers etc). ______________________________
Are you including holiday baking and meals in your grocery budget? If so, do you increase it for December?
I’m not sure if we can survive the week on orange juice and celery!
Time to do my grocery list and meal plan for the week.
What are you planning for dinner this week?

Dynamische Hatha Yogales was heerlijk vanmorgen na de wijnproeverij (gevolgd door nog meer wijntjes) van gisteravond 🍷 Voel me weer fris & fruitig. Rest van de dag een beetje aanrommelen in huis en boodschappen doen #emptyfridge. Fijn zo’n relaxte zondag 😊
Ni vet känslan när man kommer hem efter några veckors resa. Tömt kyl på allt som kan bli dåligt innan man for. När man sen kommer hem efter semestern och har absolut inget hemma att äta till lunch. Då blir det bli stekta ägg med olivoljestekt haricot vert (fr frysen) med chiliflakes, vitlök och lite honung. Funkade helt ok, faktiskt. Storhandling nästa!
