Walmart & Costco Grocery Haul
Its been a couple of months since I posted a grocery haul. I recently just returned from my trip to Iceland, where we went to visit my husbands family for the holidays. It was a great trip, but I am so happy to be home and back to our normal routine! I missed cooking in my own kitchen and recipe testing!
This week I did my grocery shopping at Walmart and also stopped by Costco for some items as well. Ill include the Costco haul at the end of the post. Ive highlighted the main items that Im asked the most about, included my dinners planned for the week, and my total. Hope you have a great week!
Items purchased from Walmart:
- Bubly sparkling water
Realgood poppers. These little chicken poppers are so good! People often message me about these products asking how I like them. I can live without the pizzas, but really love the poppers! The enchiladas are good too! These contain 2 net carbs per serving.
My favorite sausage patties! Ive highlighted these in other blog posts as well as on my Instagram page. I love them! They taste just like the ones you get from McDonalds. They are located in the freezer section with the rest of the convenience breakfast products.
You cant beat these Quest tortilla chips! They taste a lot like Doritos! I love having them as a snack and on taco nights. Each bag contains 4 net carbs. I recently took advantage of the sale on these chips, but picked up a couple of bags at Walmart until they arrive.
Walmart total: $102.45
