Started off the day with a food tribute to one of my favorite singers. Supposedly, Elvis Presley's favorite sandwich was peanut butter with bananas, so I made myself one - while my bird was sitting on my head, watching what I was doing. Hmmm, it was sooooo good - a bit high in carbs, but I'm going walking today, and it was healthy.
Yesterday, I went grocery shopping (pay day, yeah!). All healthy foods: raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, eggs, bread, low-fat meat and cheese, greek yogurt (plain), frozen veggies, Lean Cuisine, Lean Pockets, rye bread (less carbs than wheat), Simply Jif peanut butter (less sugar/salt), sugar free strawberry preserves, peanuts, walnuts, heart healthy nut mix. Plus Perrier sparkling water. It came up to almost $200, but it'll last me for weeks, I might just have to buy another loaf of bread and more yogurt.
Now, I have all kinds of yummy choices. I haven't felt much like cooking lately, so I just bought a bunch of healthy stuff that I can either eat raw, quickly turn into a sandwich, or microwave. Yummy, healthy food does not have to equal a hot three-course meal.
Interestingly enough, Spark Coach asked me to visualize what it would feel to only buy healthy foods on a grocery trip. LOL! All I had to do was picture yesterday's purchase.
