I am writing this article as we are all preparing for the potential of a two week home quarantine. Since I am in my third trimester, my husband decided he was going to the store alone to get some last-minute items we could use for the next couple weeks.
However I was not prepared when he asked me, "what do we need if we didn't want to go back to the store for two weeks?" My mind went blank. We are all dealing with a situation we have never been in and therefore are not prepared for. I have made countless meal plans my clients, it is a huge part of my job. So why all of a sudden is my mind going blank when I really NEED to think of food and meals?
I took a deep breath and remembered, I have already created these materials to help with meal planning and prep in advance! So, I brought up my grocery list and started reading through my Meal Planning guide to get some good ideas.
So today I want to share my last-minute grocery list with you as well as give you free access to my popular Meal Planning guide!

My Grocery List
The most important thing with meal planning is flexibility. You want to try and make do with what you have left, so maybe you are putting broccoli + chicken + marinara sauce together and eating it over rice instead of a pasta because that is what you have.
Or maybe your meals are looking more like my pregnancy meals and are a collection of "snacks", that is okay too! Remember the most important thing is relationships and each other, so stay positive and strong for yourself and those around you.
Frozen Vegetables: Broccoli, Fajita Vegetables,
Frozen Fruit: Bananas, Mango, Berries
Chicken Breast, Meat, Fish
Pizza yes, it's in my freezer too :)
Eggs (lots of eggs!)
Milk (almond for me, regular for Kyle)
Cereal - my husband chose cheerios and lucky charms to balance himself out
Chia Seeds + Flax Seeds
Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil
Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes
Rice and Pasta
Chickpeas and Black Beans
Coffee & Tea
...and dark chocolate of course!
Sending love, health, and happiness your way in these high anxiety times. Try to stay focused on the things you can control right now and the people you can help.
