Today’s Purely Talk is about meal prep ideas and grocery shopping.

mandy food prep question

We received a question from Mandy if we can give some tips on how we meal plan and prep for the week.

Great question.


Honestly we have never been into planning out meals. We just know what foods we like so we keep them on hand all the time.

But as you can see from our daily eats, we tend to eat a lot of the same things. Which to some that may be boring, but we like sticking to what our bodies like. Even if our general food choices change from time to time.

We do most of grocery shopping on the weekends from going to the farmers market on Saturdays and then finishing up on Sundays at regular grocery stores in our area. Check out this video we shared on instagram awhile back showing some food we bought.

Since we know what foods we like to eat, grocery shopping is pretty simple.  We never make a list. We have been enjoying the same foods for so long that we know what to buy. And occasionally pick up new things to try.

Our meal planning for the week is just as easy, again keeping to simple meals. We do try to do meal prepping on Sundays and sometimes on Mondays.

Enjoy the our video sharing our meal prep ideas and how we grocery shop for the week.

As we mentioned in the video we make almost all of our meals ahead of time.

Lindsay has some great ideas about meal prepping! Make sure you check those out if you need more ideas.

Twins Question: Do you meal prep? Do you plan out your meals for the week? Or do you just wing it? What days do you grocery shop?

Great tips. When you sautee greens (like arugula), do you do that fresh or prep it ahead of time?

I’m definitely a planner. Smoothies for breakfast, very veggie and protein packed lunch and another planned dinner. Even my snacks and desserts are planned. Im a bit obsessive about it but there was a time when I didn’t eat at all, so I prefer to eat healthy well plaanned meals rather than avoiding food and hurting my health.

I usually don’t plan my meals in advance and just wing it in the kitchen. As long as I have a well-stocked fridge, I make whatever I come up with. Even when the fridge is getting empty, I can come up with something on the fly.

I’m not much into meal planning or prep myself. I just buy what I know I’ll eat and eat it before it goes bad! It’s more fun to figure out what you want when you want it 🙂
