It’s Sunday! That was for all of you that don’t know what the day is :0) Anyhow here Sundays are for grocery shopping. I still need to make my list and plan meals and actually do the shopping. This weeks trip should be super easy, I already have enough protein in the house to feed a small army for at least a month, I have a years supply of beef in the deep freezer so maybe longer than a month.
I love grocery shopping (weird huh?) but I really hate walking by end caps that are stuffed with all the processed “yummy” foods I used to eat. Even shopping the perimeter you still go by two dozen end caps. I never really want these things unless I see them. Once they are in my view I mourn for them, just a little. People talk about how they eat my “forbidden’ foods and the thought of eating that junk can make my stomach turn. Why do I feel totally different when I see it?
When I grocery shop i try to find an ingredient that I have never had, never cooked myself or something new for Emma or the DH. Emma loves being able to pick something new from the produce section. This has really helped with changing her diet to a less processed more diverse one. She is doing great with the healthy eating. We went had dinner out the other day and she ordered, grilled chicken, pita, salad and steamed broccoli. Not bad for a six-year-old ordering her own meal. At six I would have said chicken fingers, fries and ice cream.
I am thinking this week I may shop a bit outside of my norm. A good friend of our’s dad passed so I’m thinking I should get the stuff to send them a few meals for the week. I would make what I make but not everyone wants to eat the way I do and it wouldn’t be much help if I sent things they don’t eat. I need to make some calls to make sure food isn’t already handled first. I figure some baked ziti, a tray of salad, a pan of enchiladas and a tray of rice may do. They reheat well.
Well, I better go make my lists and get moving i still have to get my workout in today too! Happy Sunday everyone!
