I made out my list, had a budget, and headed toward the market. Unfortunately, I live in a town that has a total of four grocery stores (two of them Wal-Mart), and the farmer's market is only open 2 1/2 months during the summer. Oh, yeah, we have a tiny natural foods store, which I support any time I can. Let me count how many temptations there are, like the Marie Calender Pepperment Cake which has 930 calories for a serving, which is 1/6 of the cake. Forget it, I could chomp 1/2 of the cake at one setting.
I did really good buying what was on my list, and was able to compromise for the items I couldn't find (like won-tan wrappers). I also stayed within my budget.
My body hurts from all of the work I did the last two days and was not able to go back and enter it.
I lave lots of what I call "food tricks" which let me eat food I really like but increase the protein, decrease the fat, carbs, and overall calories. Time to finish more entries. Shaun
