Today I found myself in the grocery store since, my cupboards and fridge were completely empty! I decided as soon as I walked into the store that I was gonna buy healthy foods and healthy snacks. So, I avoided some of the aisles I usually shop down for snacks and I bought organic meats. I did grab a few snacks for the children that they can have as a desert but, I decided it will be a treat not an everyday snack.
Butter: Instead of butter which, I use to cook pretty much everything, I bought olive oil. Yes, it’s a bit more pricey but, my body will thank me for it later.
Snacks: I bought fresh fruit apples, oranges, bananas, strawberries, and blue berries. I did buy one thing of cookies for an after dinner snack once a week.
Sides: I still bought Mac n cheese but, I got beans, rice, stuff to make salads, and more veggies.
Meals: I only bought one pasta meal this time which, is saying a lot for me lol. The rest were chicken based, 1 pork, 1 ham, and 1 steak meal.
I also bought deli lunch meat, white wheat bread as I am slowly getting used to eating all wheat based breads.
I know it wasn’t a perfect trip but, It’s a start to a healthier family. I will say I spent 400 dollars so, I am going to have to start collecting coupons. 🙂
