I woke up today eager to focus on making the right choices. I think my kitchen is looking better already!
I went to the local healthy grocer armed with my list. I never tried to buy so much health food at one time in my life! People were helpful, both customers and staff, which was great because I was so clueless! I felt very frustrated with the fresh produce bags that are even harder to open than in the traditional grocery stores. I suspect these are better for the environment, but I wish there could be a more customer friendly design. I don't think I ever spent so much time in a grocer store as I did today! But it was worth it, I got everything on my list, and nothing that was NOT on the list. I purchased fewer bags than usual, and it cost more than usual, but I'm trying to weigh the health benefits against the financial concern.
Breakfast: Oatmeal, cinnamon, mashed banana (at home)
Lunch: Big bowl of salad with balsamic vinegar and roasted vegetables. (at home)
Snack: Cucumber fresh from my garden, sliced, and a peach (at the movies)
Dinner: Spring Mix Salad, black beans with cilantro, onion, cayenne pepper, long grain brown rice
I crave oil. And salt.
