At the start of the new year, I shared a photo of my weekly shop as the start of this series – giving sneak peeks into the weekly food shops of some healthy Aussie mums. This week, we meet Perth blogger, Teagan. I am going to hand you straight over to her so she can tell you all about what’s in her trolley.
Hey! I’m Teagan – mama to two crazy redheads, and one man child! I’m a lifestyle blogger and social influencer over at Two Kids Raising Kids. When it comes to food and health, I’m all about balance! I want to raise our children to see food as fuel, to be respected and enjoyed, but never to control their lives. We eat mainly fresh, wholesome and nourishing meals throughout the week, but what you don’t see in the photo below are the couple times a week Nick or I sneak down to our local IGA for a “treat” once the kids are in bed! I hope you enjoy this sneak peak into our trolley, and if you want to see more of us you can find me over on Instagram or read more of my content on the blog.
What’s in my trolley quiz
Each week as part of this series, I ask my guest blogger the same questions to get a little more insight into their healthy shopping. Here’s Teagan’s Q+A.
1. Where do you normally shop?
I do my big, weekly shop at Coles to get the bulk of our groceries. I used to get my (cape seed) bread from Bakers Delight, but have found a similar loaf at Coles, so if I’m feeling too lazy to walk across the centre I’ll make do with that! We also love to shop at Source Wholefoods for things such as spices, nuts and seeds, pasta, oils, healthy snacks and kombucha! Throughout the week if we need a top up, we’ll run down to our local IGA.
2. Who is in your family?
3. Dietary requirements?
4. How long will this shop last you?
5. What is not in this haul that you eat regularly?
- The kids breakfasts (Vitabrits or rolled oats)
- Spreads (Pics smooth peanut butter, or Vegemite)
- Rice cakes
- Microwaveable brown rice and chia seed pots
- Organic, grass fed beef eye fillet steaks
- Organic chicken stock
- Quorn vegan schnitzels
- Turkey mince
- A few trips a week to our local sushi train!
We use the app CluckAR to check that the eggs we buy are actually free range.
