- I'm a busy mom and dietitian on the Mediterranean diet, so I love shopping at Target.
- I keep my freezer stocked with cauliflower-crust pizzas and breakfast burritos for quick meals.
- Protein-packed chips, freeze-dried strawberries, and guacamole packs come in handy for snacks.
As a busy mom, it should be no surprise that I find myself at Target at least once a month.
I go there to pick up craft supplies for my daughter or kitchen gadgets for my job as a registered dietitian. And I go for the impressive grocery selection.
My family mostly follows a Mediterranean-style diet with plenty of protein, whole grains, and healthy fats.
Here are 12 groceries I buy at Target every month.
Canned chickpeas can be added to many dishes for a convenient boost of plant-based protein — no cooking required.
I use them in lunchtime harvest bowls and salads. Or, for a crunchy alternative to potato chips, I season and roast them for my daughter's snack time.
Protein is necessary at snack time, and Wilde chips check that box — each serving has 10 grams.
They're made with chicken breast, egg whites, and bone broth for a flavorful, nutrient-packed snack that I find just as enjoyable as regular potato chips.
StarKist's Tuna Creations make including protein in our busy days a breeze. They pack a whopping 17 grams per serving
Each pouch has seasoned wild-caught tuna that's become my family's staple ingredient for sandwiches, salads, and more.
We like the lemon-pepper flavor, but sometimes I try other varieties, like hot Buffalo, when I want something with a kick.
I always keep Eggland's Best eggs in my fridge — they're my favorite for making breakfast, baked goods, and various other meals.
The brand says its eggs have 25% less saturated fat, six times more vitamin D, and 10 times more vitamin E compared to other brands.
Plus, its hens only eat vegetarian feed, and in my opinion, the eggs taste better.
Milk can be expensive, especially if it's organic, but Good & Gather offers cartons at an amazing price point.
At my target, a half-gallon is $4, and I think it tastes just as good as the name-brand choices.
Guacamole cups add fiber to snack time and help us meet our daily fruit intake.
They're made with Hass avocados, jalapeños, and other quality ingredients. Plus, the packs don't have added preservatives.
I don't have time to deal with a cold, so I try to incorporate a lot of probiotics into my diet to boost my gut and immune health.
I always grab a few bottles of Synergy Trilogy kombucha. The organic, raw kombucha is packed with a berry-lemon-ginger flavor that I can't get enough of.
Kind bars are perfect for tossing into my daughter's lunch box and my purse on busy days.
The granola bars are made with quality ingredients like almonds and real chocolate, and each has 6 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber.
They're a great, satiating snack.
Since my daughter's school bus picks her up at 6:30 a.m., we need quick and nutritious breakfast options to get her out the door with a full belly.
Red's frozen burritos are made with cage-free eggs, and each has 17 grams of protein.
It's not always practical to pack fresh fruit in my daughter's lunchbox because it can get mushy by lunchtime.
Instead, I'll pack her freeze-dried strawberries because they're crunchy and portable.
Apples are an easy snack with a boost of gut-health-supporting fiber, and I love having an economical fresh-fruit option that I can buy in bulk.
Good & Gather's 2-pound bag of Honeycrisp apples only cost me $6.
