Tribute to Elvis

Sunday, March 03, 2013

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.

    Kati, I love the sparkling water. I'm from Germany, and that's one habit I've maintained; everyone drinks that over there. That might be one reason they have less weight issues. It's bubbly like soda pop without the calories, and the carbonation keeps you feeling full quicker. I do have a water filter, but sometimes I just want bubbles. :-) Unfortunately, that stuff is expensive over here, but then pop would not exactly cheap, either. Once I have some extra money, I'll buy one of those soda makers, that will save me a lot in the long run.

    Great shopping !!!! way to go....

    one you buy that high dollar water cause you like it?

    I have a Britta pitcher & a Britta Go Cup that purify our water & it tastes fine..

    I know some folks like the "special water"...but just a hint..

    The one time investment in the Britta or Pur or whatever also is great for the planet.

    Less plastic bottles in the trash...& still purified water in you!

    Not judging..not saying you are wrong..just thinking & suggesting!
