I went to the grocery store today to stock up on some healthy eats. You know, it's funny...I always try to use coupons when I grocery shop. However, it's really hard to use coupons when the majority of what you buy is from the produce section.
I have yet to find a coupon for lettuce.
Has anyone seen or tried these snacks?
They are little packs of freeze dried fruit chips - apple, strawberry and pear. The pear and apple packs are 1 point each and the strawberry is 0.
They really aren't bad. I sampled the pear. The flavor is great and the texture is somewhere between a rice cake and a marshmallow. I can't wait to try the strawberry ones.
I got some soy milk, which I never really had an interest in. The only reason I bought it tonight was so MB and I could make smoothies. He heard that soy milk was the best thing to use, so we thought we'd give it a try.
You know, it doesn't taste all that bad. It's kinda gritty, but the flavor is okay. I'm not going to be switching over completely, but I'll use it every now and then.
MB already has his smoothie ingredients in the blender in the fridge, ready to mix up in the morning.
Isn't that cute? It's really the perfect thing for him to take to work. He struggles with packing breakfast because he leaves at 4am to drive 2 hours to work and it's hard to plan a healthy breakfast. Smoothies just may be the answer.
I also stocked up on some tea to go packets to mix into my water...
...some dessert flavored yogurts to satisfy my sweet tooth...
...and some fresh fruits to nibble on.
I have very healthy dinners planned for MB and I for the week. We are both going to be exercising and are looking forward to seeing some progress on the scale this week.
