I apologize if it seems like I’m killing the topic of eating during Passover. I find that folks have even more questions about eating gluten (and other allergen) free during the holiday because matzah usually is the first thing that pops into folks’ minds for meals. If nothing else, I’m hoping to prove that anyone can eat outside the box during the 8 day holiday and eat plenty of whole, clean, delicious meals that rely on little to no processed foods.
When I landed back in DC on Wednesday the first thing to do (after eating lunch, of course) was go grocery shopping. My fridge was pretty bare and there were things to pick up that hadn’t been opened and therefore would be kosher for Passover.
My Trader Joe’s haul:
romaine lettuce, spinach, broccoli florets, portobello mushroom caps, carrots, chives, cauliflower, vegetable broth, artichoke hearts, red pepper spread, feta, onion, bell pepper, cucumber, frozen berries, frozen broccoli
And, Whole Foods:
frozen asparagus, organic, local chicken breasts, sweet potato, Greek yogurt, red onion, coconut water, pears
My total was $63.15 including organic chicken and lots of fresh produce. This doesn’t include the special Passover foods I purchased a few weeks ago. Since I’m not eating out this week, feeding myself meals + snacks for this amount is pretty reasonable!
