Grocery shopping is something that I dread doing, but it feels so good once you are all stocked up on yummy food! I always find it interesting to see what people get when they grocery shop! So, I figured why not show you what I get on a bi-weekly basis. I shop at our local Shop Rite here in Medford, NJ. I also love shopping on their Military Mondays because they give me an additional 5% off my total bill for presenting my Military ID!

Before I unload all the groceries I quickly take a minute and wipe down my fridge as best as I can from all the spilled food, sticky fingers, & marks! It is easiest to do it when its more empty with warm water and a paper towel!
My honest advice on fridge organization is.... do whatever works for you! One thing I also try to remember is to put the older things that will expire first at the front or on top so those will be used first! I have made the mistake of not doing this and have to end up throwing more then I would have liked out in the trash! I try to avoid wasting food at all costs!
<Bonus Healthy High Protein Pizza Recipe>
What you'll need:
PS: my kids LOVED THIS!
-high protein flat out wraps
-Kraft fat free cheese
-low fat turkey meat balls (I used Natures Promise)
-cheese tortellini (I use Pre-Made Buitoni)
-Spinach (its under the cheese you just can't see it!)
-you can lower the carbs by adding more meat instead of the pasta...I used tofu in mine! Tofu is great because it absorbs whatever you season it with!
