Macro Meals to Make With Your Shopping Basket

I went food shopping for the week today, visited Aldi and Waitrose and spent around £50. Not going to lie, going food shopping is one of the perks of my life.  I can’t help but feel extremely grateful to be able to afford to buy myself healthy foods which I know will nourish and provide my body with energy. I wanted to share with you my shopping list, I will break it down into categories according to the macros such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats so you can see what makes up my diet. I will then explain what I plan to do with the foods combined to make meal for breakfast, lunch, tea and snacks. I also include drink suggestions at the end.
