Let’s face it: sometimes grocery shopping can be a pain. Whether you’re trying to stick to a budget or are hoping to incorporate a variety of healthy items into your weekly meal plan, it’s not always easy. However, certified fitness coach Katie Austin is here to make things a little less complicated.

Not only does the SI Swimsuit model provide “healthified” versions of popular recipes on The Katie Austin App, she also recently offered up her foolproof method for grocery shopping, which we think is worth sharing.

In an Instagram story on Monday, the 30-year-old content creator showed off a photo of a recent grocery haul, which featured lean proteins, frozen berries, yogurt and chicken broth, just to name a few. She then noted the formula she typically follows when grocery shopping, as follows:

  • Two proteins. “I got ground turkey and shredded chicken,” Austin wrote of this week’s haul.
  • Three to four veggies. Austin opted for onion, carrots, zucchini, squash and mushrooms.
  • One cheese. This week, she reached for Parmesan.
  • Yogurt or cottage cheese. Siggi’s vanilla yogurt was spotted in the photo.
  • Restock stuff for smoothies. Frozen whole strawberries, for example.
  • A vegetarian protein, like beans.
  • One to two lettuces. “I got butter lettuce and spinach,” Austin shared. 

She also noted that all of the above items are in addition to staples she already has in her pantry or refrigerator, including rice, pasta, eggs, sauces and spices.
