It is extremely hard to sit down with my laptop after a full day at work in front of a computer, but here goes.
I would like to start sharing what I purchase at the grocery...starting today!
On the way home I stopped at Whole Foods which is definitely one of my favorite stores. I get excited every time I go in, expecting there will be a new product that I'll discover.
This is my philosophy on grocery shopping/spending money on food:
I care A LOT about what goes in my body. I want to eat whole foods, natural foods, and pure foods. I can justify high grocery bills because the food I eat is going to change how I look and how I feel. I wish more people grasped that concept: that what you are eating day in and day out is affecting your mood, your body, and your overall health.
Now onto my purchases:
-A bunch of different canned beans: black, kidney, and white, for a vegetarian chili that I plan on making soon
-Can of diced tomatoes
-5 lb bag of whole carrots. It's a little excessive for one person, and I wanted a smaller bag, but none was available.
-Stonyfield organic yogurt (french vanilla flavor)
-Boca brand spicy chicken patties (not really chicken)
-Boca veggie burgers
-1 individual serving of Oikos strawberry (Greek yogurt)
-1 sweet onion
-2 Braeburn applies
-Two crowns of broccoli
-1 big bag of spinach (for my Green Monsters of course!)
And here's a picture of my final three purchases:
-Whole Foods brand hummus. THE BEST EVER!!!!!
-Pacific boxed soup. I had their soup a lot in college and liked it so I thought I'd give it a go again
-Chia seeds (read below)
This will be my first experience with Chia seeds. I see a lot of the other bloggers put it in things like oatmeal and smoothies. They are a great source of Omega acids and other antioxidants. Most undoubtedly I could have ordered them online cheaper, but the thought didn't cross my mind until now.
Currently I am roasting some brussel sprouts, mushrooms, and garlic in the oven. It smells delicious in the apartment.
P.S. I got my official race results for the Fleet Feet Fiesta 3 mile run!
I placed 75th out of 346 participants. They said my finish time was 26:09. Well OK then!
