In college I learned a lot about food. The bad food, the healthy food, the kinda good/kinda bad food, and everything in between. It is safe to say my taste buds have wildly changed in the last few years. I didn't cook for myself very much in high school but I started to learn before I graduated out of fear that I would never have a home cooked meal again. When I started my freshman year of college, I quickly learned that snacks and junk food were easier than fresh food. After quickly getting tired of pop tarts and ramen noodles I realized I had to stop being lazy. Luckily my dorm had a community kitchen on each floor so I started cooking for myself. After watching too many Tasty videos on Facebook, I was cooking almost every day and learning how to really grocery shop. I learned that grocery shopping is not as expensive as I thought. I also realized that it is important to shop smart and only buy what you know you will eat. The list below is what my typical grocery shopping list looks like. Most of these items are not too expensive and since I moved into a house with my roommates I grocery shop constantly. I also realized that I spend a lot less money eating out when I have groceries in the house so that's a plus too!
My Grocery List:
Since moving out of the dorm I have learned to cook just about everything I like to eat. I usually shop at Publix or Trader Joes in Florida, but in Oxford I shop at Kroger or the Chicory Market. I mainly meal prep on Sundays or Mondays. I usually buy my meat and vegetables for the school week and pick up anything extra that I want after class.
