I'm working on the grocery shopping today. And I bought MUSHROOMS! Portabello mushroom caps, to be precise. I haven't tried them, yet. But I bought them! I've seen some recipes and pictures where they have been used in place of hamburgers, so I'm going to try it. Please, do NOT suggest turkey burgers. I have tried them. They are disgusting. And no, it wasn't the brand (I tried about 4). Ground turkey is just nasty. I have adapted to turkey hotdogs, however.
And I also got turkey sausage instead of brats. For what it costs, it BETTER TASTE GOOD!! I don't care what anyone says, healthy food is not always possible on a budget! Eg-canned pasta: 2.5 servings/can 79cents. Canned fruit in heavy syrup: 2.5 servings 99 cents. Whole weat pasta:2.49/8oz box. Salad mix 2.99/6 cup bag. Apples (any kind I can eat without being sick from texture) 2.49 PER POUND? AND UP! Celery: 1.49 per bag (about 3 decent servings if you don't care for the center bitter parts) mushrooms 1.00 per serving, regular meats $3 and less per pound (4-5 servings)
So, it's not just ME. The math proves it. And oh my God, do not even TALK to me about organics!! If I had that kind of extra money- I wouldn't be on a budget!!!
Anyway. I logged my breakfast (ouch. 600 calories for a sausage sandwich and a bottle of starts at ten bucks). Deciding what I want for lunch. And heading out for more shopping.
This is getting counted as exercise. Lifting, lugging, walking. Yep. I'm counting it as exercise.
