Is what I say at the grocery store, usually when there are FIGS.
Do you guys know about figs?
What you need to know is: OMG EAT THEM.
Yeah. So I was really hungry when I went grocery shopping last night. The good news is, most of the stuff that went in the cart Because OMG DELICIOUS was pretty healthy. I bought two lists of stuff:
1) planned stuff:
Chicken, yogurt, sweet potatoes, celery and onion for chicken salad, raw veggies for snacking, stuff for turkey burgers for dinner, stuff for chicken sausage with peppers & onions for dinner.
2) OMG IMPULSE BUY!
FIGS. Though technically that is not an "impulse buy," that's a rare-item-buy it-when-you-see-it buy. A cantaloupe. Apples! JERSEY TOMATOES OM NOM NOM NOM. Extra dark chocolate, to be enjoyed one small square a time. Chocolate PB, to be eaten with the apples. Because my chocolate almond butter is almost gone. Vitatops - to replace the Thomas's corn muffin toaster things I originally picked up. Fancy cheddar, to eat a weeny 1 or 1/2 oz with fruit. Pasta - but I got a healthy marinara & lean grass fed bison instead of beef to make the sauce. OH and spinach/kale mix to saute.
Yes, kale = impulse buy. I'm a freak, is how.
I mean, really... that's not bad! I wasn't like HEY ICE CREAM, OH LOOK COOKIES. I was like MAN, I NEED SOME FREAKING FIGS. I even did the math (MATH!!) to see if I could have my yogurt + a vitatop with a little butter instead of yogurt + sweet potato and be in the same calorie range. YUP. DONE. LOVE IT.
So yeah. It's going well.
My last few days look great. I actually tracked all 3 meals plus my snack for today? LAST NIGHT, based on the stuff I bought. Hahaha. I wanted to know which treats I could eat!
I came in right at the bottom of my calorie range yesterday, though protein was low. Today is looking awesome I'll just stick with my already tracked food plan.
Now I just need to do this for like 365 more days...
