Grocery Haul of the Week

It’s been a hot minute since the last time I published a “grocery haul” post, and considering my recent enthusiasm for Aldi, today seemed like a good day to re-establish that Broccoli Hut tradition. Here’s a look at the pretty sizable haul from today:



  • bananas x 14
  • pineapple
  • bell peppers x 6
  • Fuji apples x 8 (3-lb. bag)
  • broccoli crowns
  • tomatoes x 5
  • cantaloupe
  • cucumber
  • asparagus
  • organic spring mix
  • organic spinach
  • blackberries
  • mushrooms
  • cole slaw mix
  • organic baby carrots
  • avocados x 3

frozen foods + dairy + deli


  • frozen wild-caught flounder filets
  • frozen strawberries
  • frozen blueberries
  • plain Greek yogurt
  • low-fat cottage cheese
  • reduced-fat shredded cheddar
  • roasted garlic hummus
  • roasted red pepper hummus
  • natural turkey
  • lactose-free milk
  • almond milk
  • reduced-sugar orange juice
  • flavored non-fat yogurts x 4 (for Seth’s lunch box)

grocery items


  • whole wheat bread
  • reduced-fat wheat thins
  • roasted cashews
  • natural almonds
  • coffee
  • stevia
  • canned pumpkin puree
  • canned organic black beans
  • low-sodium canned tuna x 2
  • fruit preserves
  • creamy natural peanut butter
  • corn tortillas

That seems like an awful lot of food, but somehow Seth and I manage to eat 99% of the food I buy. Lately, I’ve been minimizing waste even more by taking any produce that’s left in the fridge on Sundays and either cooking it into a pasta sauce/soup (and freezing for future use) or cleaning and chopping it to encourage consumption ASAP.

What did you buy this week?

  1. I’m glad to see you posting again! We are trying to reduce our weekly grocery bill, which we let slip right after I had the baby. Here’s this week’s list: bananas (6), apples (bag), garlic, basil, potatoes (two sacks!), avocado, cremini and oyster mushrooms, eggs, milk, cottage cheese, sharp cheddar, feta, sour cream, dry chickpeas, pita, canned tomatoes, coffee beans, peanut butter, frozen spinach, and veggie broth. We also get a biweekly CSA box, which had romanesco, lettuce, endive, carrots, two kiwis, two apples, and a grapefruit. We hit right at our budget for this week, which was $56 (the CSA is $25 every other week)!
