Weekly Grocery Haul + Some of My Favorite Healthy Snacks for Busy Moms

While grocery shopping isn’t my favorite task of all time, I really enjoy stocking our pantry! There is just a nice feeling that comes with taking care of our families, isn’t there? I know for homemakers at least, this is definitely true!

Not too long ago, I shared one of our weekly grocery hauls on my YouTube. I’m not super active on YouTube, but I do enjoy posting a video there from time to time.

It was kind of funny. When I was editing the video, I got a sinking feeling in my stomach. I had purchased way too many “convenience” foods for my kiddos in my opinion.

I have wanted to switch over to making as much food as I can from scratch, but I haven’t found the time when it comes to snacky food. I did hesitate before purchasing the vanilla wafers with the glaring “artificial flavors” label on the front, but I did it anyway. My daughter Mabrey might be the pickiest child ever, and I wanted to make sure that she has what she likes on hand.

Well, I’m happy to say that I’ve found a vanilla wafer recipe that I would like to try, and I’ve successfully made cheese crackers for my crew! This isn’t to say that I will never buy snack food again, but I’m getting closer to learning how to make everything we eat from scratch.

I think I might need to implement a “kitchen day” pretty soon. It does take quite a bit of time to scratch cook. I do think it is worth it, though!

Now, after all of the talk about why I don’t want to purchase snack foods…here is the “healthy” snack food that I purchase for myself. Oh, the irony!

Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips: Friends, these chips are a little pricey, but they are so good! Also, I can easily read all of the ingredients on the label. A win-win!

Kind Thins: I like these bars so much, and overall, the ingredients are good.

Nasoya Thai Basil Vegetable Dumplings: Ah, these dumplings are wonderful in my opinion! I eat these a few times a week for lunch.

I hope you enjoy these easy “mom snacks” if you decide to try them. While I know convenience food isn’t the best thing ever, it is nice to have something simple and healthy to grab in a pinch from your pantry or refrigerator.

Changing my eating habits helped me to lose over 40 pounds. Having foods like these on hand definitely helped me.

This weekly grocery trip came to $216, I believe. Not too bad for a family of ten.
