My Typical Healthy Grocery List (+ Jewel-Osco Home Delivery!)
Like most people in the Chicago-land area, I am a huge fan of Jewel-Osco. I grew up shopping there with my family, but the love really began when I started blogging. I spent a few days in Los Angeles learning about their Signature Collection and a full day here in Chicago playing with their O Organics products last year. Plus, they just opened a new location near me that is BEAUTIFUL. So you get it, big fan over here.
All of that said, we are entering into the winter season. This means the last thing I want to do is bundle up to go outside in the wind, snow and below zero temps to go grocery shopping… and then CARRY it all home! Such a downfall of city life, right? Luckily, there’s now Jewel-Osco Home Delivery. Yes, you read that correctly! Jewel will now deliver your groceries right to your door. MAJOR WIN! All you have to do is go to shop.jewelosco.com or the Jewel-Osco app, create an account and start shopping. Once you place your first order, the system will store your favorites, so you can easily reorder your favorites through the Shop By History tab. SO easy!
From there, one hour delivery windows are available 7 days a week, from 7am-10pm, and as long as you order before 1:00pm, you’re eligible for Same Day Delivery. And don’t worry, the delivery truck has a freezer and chilled compartment, so your ice cream won’t melt and your veggies won’t wilt. Also, if you have a car but no time to shop, you can order online and select “Drive Up & Go” curbside pickup!
Want to try it out?!
Add at least $30 worth of groceries to your cart and enter the promo code FREE to get free delivery (until 2/28/18). I recommend knocking a whole week’s worth of groceries out of the way if you can, though. You won’t need to carry all of it and if you spend over $100, you can get $25 off + free delivery on your 1st order with code JEWEL (until 2/28/18).
I tried out the service and was thrilled that it all arrived super fresh and on time. It took such little time out of my busy schedule, and I still got all of my favorites!
If you’re curious what I got, I’ve put together a sample version of my typical grocery list. I’ll admit – there were a few items I wasn’t sure how to categorize, so I put them under “Pantry.” Please don’t judge me if that’s totally wrong haha ?
So out of this list, I get a lot of snacks, meals and morning caffeine! Let’s talk through it.
What I get out of my healthy grocery list delivery:
Coffee and coconut creamer for the mornings is essential. I go through phases of what I like in my coffee, but when I want something a little sweet, this SO Delicious Coconut Creamer in French Vanilla hits the spot. I usually get their regular flavor, but this one is a little more indulgent for the holidays!
Since we’re talking about mornings, I also love Sambazon’s Acai Frozen Acai packets. I seriously always have them on hand in my freezer. I also got almond milk, bananas, spinach, cacao nibs and Purely Elizabeth granola – all great things to add to my smoothies/smoothie bowls!
Moving on to savory meals, I got all of the ingredients for an easy stir fry. Extra Firm tofu, colorful bell peppers, an onion, water chestnuts, brown rice and Teriyaki sauce is all you need! You could add different veggies, I just love peppers and onions in everything.
But that’s not the only meal you can get out of this list! All you need is pasta, chicken sausage, broccoli, garlic and parmesan and you can quickly whip up my Chicken Sausage and Broccoli Pasta! Plus, you can make it a little healthier with Eat Banza chickpea noodles instead of regular ones if you’re watching your waistline ?
I also picked up some chicken breasts that I can cook up and add to salads throughout the week.
And you can’t get a grocery haul without some snacks. At least I can’t! This time, I got apples (to eat with almond butter) and chickpea chips, Nut Thins and carrots to eat with hummus. These are necessary snacks in my kitchen!
Last but not least, the best time to stock up on La Croix is when it’s being delivered, right?! I got a 12 pack of passionfruit, along with a bottle of kombucha… duh!
What does your typical grocery list look like?
Do we have similar tastes? Did I leave anything off that I should add in? Let me know!
