So I’ve set out on this mission for myself and family to eat fewer processed foods, more organic, chemical free fruits and veggies, and just a healthier life style in general. So far so good. When I go out to lunch I have not been tempted by the big greasy cheeseburgers, and the over-stuffed deli sandwiches and fries but rather stick with my salad (which today by the way, happened to be very good!!-mixed greens, cucumbers, carrots, almonds, cheese, and grilled chicken.) but where I am finding the problem is at the grocery store. Twice now I have gone in shopping for something for dinner and each time I walk out almost empty handed. Normally I run in if nothing is at the house and my cart comes out carrying things like this:
Or maybe a little of this:
And of course when it comes to feeding Keagan…..First thing to grab is:
So what it boils down too is….I need help! I’ve discovered that the freezer and microwave have become my best friend and once upon a time I felt so comfortable in a store-I now roam around like a lost puppy dog looking for their owner. The past couple of nights we’ve managed and done pretty well. Each night we’ve grilled some chicken and had a good grilled veggie on the side….Guess what-It’s going to be that same thing tonight!…And I think tomorrow I’ve come up with a nice fresh stir fry…Other than that, I’m at a loss. Looks like I’ve got a lot of reading to do, searching for recipes, and maybe it’s time to pull out my creative streak and see what I can come up with.
I want my grocery cart to have all the colors of this:
I want to know what to cook and not struggle at the store…I want to have stuff in the pantry that my grandparents would recognize as food…I just need the tools to get there. Suggestions, Recipes, Ideas??
