Shopping Time

Posted Mar 24 2011 10:38am

Yesterday was a busy day, but it was also a fun day.

In the morning, I let Jillian kick my booty as I did level three of 30 Day Shred.  After my self-inflicted beating, I started to prepare lunch for my parents who were coming over for a visit.

After a lunch of wraps and salad, my mom and I went shopping while my father was doing some handy work in my house.  Mom and I had such a fun day of shopping.  Clearly, I got my sweet shopping skills from her.

Speaking of shopping, today was grocery shopping day.  I managed to save a boatload of money today by using coupons which was awesome.

As I was unloading my groceries, I thought back to a conversation my friend Kirsten and I had a few weeks ago.   She pointed out that our refrigerators are stocked with healthy foods and our pantries, but this is probably not the norm for most people.

My haul for the week consisted of:

Kale
Lettuce
Strawberries
Bananas
Grapefruit
Apples
Tahini
Tomatoes
Carrots
Tilapia
Puffins Original
Almond milk
Lara bars
Sprouted bread and Nature’s Pride bread
Maple syrup
Hummus
Lemons
Mushrooms
Coconut water

Sure this is “normal” for a health blogger/wellness consultant, but Kirsten made a great point.  I’ll bet that the average weekly grocery shopping trip for most Americans consists of far less produce and way more processed junk.

Do you have a lot of processed foods in your household, or does your family have a very natural clean diet? I plan to discuss this topic a bit more in the very near future.

Going back in time again…

Dinner last night was some comfort food in the form of turkey meatloaf muffins .

I’ve said it before, but I love these little things.

After dinner, we watched American Idol.  The contestants this year are amazing, but I need state that Stefano completely and utterly butchered “Hello” which is one of the very best Lionel Richie songs ever.  I was not a happy camper, and I may never get over it.  I would have given anything to have been a judge on that panel last night.  Don’t mess with my Lionel!

I’m meeting Michael for lunch today, so I am going to do my workout and get all beautified for our afternoon date. ;)

Have a great day!
