Grocery Grab Wednesday

Last week my schedule was completely off, so I ended up having to do my grocery shopping on Tuesday instead of Wednesday...and I completely never got around to posting my Grocery Grab post on Wednesday.  So here's a quick photo and total spend from that shopping trip last week.

Groceries from Sprouts totaling $61.70
I spent $61.70 on groceries plus about $10 on milk and eggs from the dairy.  Not bad!  I can't wait until the summer, when our fruit bowl and fridge crisper will be overflowing with fresh (and cheap!) fruits and veggies.  Sprouts always has the best deals on produce!

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but kombucha has slowly but steadily made it's way into my Grocery Grab Wednesday as a weekly staple product that I buy.  When I gave up soda for Lent, I decided to try kombucha.  I've heard that fermented foods and drinks are really healthy and that kombucha is kind of a natural energy drink.  I love the natural fizz of the kombucha, and now I regularly drink 1/3 of a bottle of kombucha in the afternoon.  It is a great treat in the afternoon, and it helps me power through the rest of the day!

Here's what I bought this week:
