Meal Prep Week Four

It is Sunday, Sunday, Sunday and that means it's time to prep some food. I did not prep as much as I did last week mostly because I was organizing like crazy. It was time to do some serious inventory. 

A zero waste meal prep with a full itemized shopping list from the bulk store from


We were coming up on the semi-annual bulk run! And, after lugging over a hundred pounds on my back through public transit, i think I'm going to try and make this a quarterly run. I was running low on a lot of dry goods. 

I made a list before I went shopping, but I got a little distracted. Rainbow Grocery has all sorts of things you can't find anywhere else. So I allowed myself a little bit of freedom to go crazy. And, I may have went a little too crazy. 

Old shopping habits die hard. 

I still have a lot of tomatoes and bell peppers left over from last week. So, there's lots of soup in my future. I have some romaine leftover for side salads. 


My last big bulk run was at the beginning of May. Which means this months run has approximately $120-$150 saved up. 


Unfortunately they were out of maple syrup! Maple syrup penguin will just have to be filled next time.

So, I was a little over budget the week. But, I was so excited about the fresh pasta. It was completely unnecessary since it's super easy to make gnocchi, but I couldn't resist. 

I love buying Justin his favorite things! So, I went all out on junk food, pasta, and chocolate chips. The dried blueberries are my absolute favorite but they cost $30 a pound. Eek!! I don't buy them very often.

The health and beauty items will last at least a year, maybe more. I'm especially excited about the aloe vera. I will be freezing it, but making mouthwash has never been easier! I could easily have done this trip on a tighter budget, I just get so excited about treats.
