Cleaning up my Pantry
Monday, September 26, 2011
So I have decided that I need to use up everything (within reason) that I have in my freezer and cupboards. I must admit to buying things when they are on sale, or they catch my interest, and then going home and eating something else ... and the new items fall to the back of the freezer or the cupboard. So.. as part of my healthy eating plan, I'm also going to use up what I have (lots of healthy foods in there) and then shop for new healthy foods when the existing stock is used up. Of course I will continue to buy fresh produce, dairy products, etc., but it will be good to use up the dry, canned and frozen foods I have on hand and then re-stock.
And, for the first time in a long time, I managed to leave the grocery store on Saturday without buying any chocolate bars. As I was in the check-out lineup, I was able to stick with my resolution to not have any "junk food" in the house. I feel good about that!
