Meal Planning Week Two/Shopping List

Meal Planning Week Two/Shopping List Recap on last week: Pretty good, but after a not so great experience with Trader Joe’s Peanut Satay, I bailed on making my own peanut noodles (I thought the Trader Joe’s one’s were too oily and it made me feel sort of sick afterwards.

This Week in Meal Planning

Sunday is my usual shopping and food prep day. I start by spending way too much time drooling over all the creative healthy blogs out there (and sometimes at the unhealthy ones…) while trying to figure out what to make for the week. I usually end up overwhelmed and debating over twenty different recipes, and … Continue reading

An Average Shopping Trip

Two of my main ones are conveniently located right next to each other, but the local health food store is a few miles away.

It is possible it is because of the the saying that you attract mosquito if you eat bananas…Still not sure if … Continue reading

The Go To Breakfast Oatmeal

The Go To Breakfast Oatmeal I am relatively new to the world of oatmeal, and am quite mad that it took me this long (that would have been the perfect companion to the dried rice and beans of college…I want to calculate the cost of this meal. I bet it’s about $0.50 a serving). I … Continue reading
