Longest Grocery Trip Ever
So last night’s trip to the grocery store was maybe the longest grocery shopping adventure I have ever had.
Mostly because, I looked at every. single. label. Annoying? Maybe, but it was interesting. There is a lot of weird stuff in our food.
Though it is unlikely I will ever quit eating meat, my food documentary marathon the other night did make me realize that maybe I should pay more attention to the source of where my animal protein is coming from.
So with that being said… a couple of things I picked up in effort to help ‘clean’ things up a little:
Multi grain bread baked fresh in the bakery with organic ingredients (and it was on sale!)
Almond butter to replace my peanut butter…. my trainer has been bugging me about this one for a while anyway.
Locally grown chicken (that is hormone and cage free, with a vegetarian diet), from a farm in my community that I literally drive by a few times a week.
And of course, organic produce – which was something that hasnt changed much because I usually buy organic produce when available (and not too expensive!)
There are a few other things I will likely test out too, but I dont want to be completely wasteful so once some of my supplies on hand are gone I will be able to incorporate a few other things as well!
With that being my goal last night, I didnt make it home until a little late, and by that time after looking at all the food, I was hunnnngry. I cooked up some chicken enchiladas.
These things are so easy and very filling! I just diced and cooked up some chicken in a pan (with a little garlic and pepper) and also heated some black beans. Once done, I spread a little bit of beans on a tortilla, topped with chicken, and then a little cheese and wrapped up and placed in a small casserole dish (an 8×8 size).
I continued until dish was full (it fit about 6 enchiladas when I was done) and then covered with a little bit of green enchilada sauce and a sprinkle of cheese and baked in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
I of course topped mine with a little bit of tomato and some plain greek yogurt on the side (in place of sour cream).
I will definitely be heading off to training tonight, it has been a whole week and I am sure I will be paying for it! My body is definitely ready for a good workout though after the long weekend!
Have a great day!
- What are some “healthy” food substitutes you make either on a regular basis or just sometimes?
The Greek yogurt instead of sour cream is a new one for me, but I love it. I have done that a lot in baking when a recipe calls for sour cream too!
- Are there certain things you buy organic?
- What’s on your agenda today!?
