Man, I’m worn out already!
I got out of the house and went everywhere I needed:
- Target – done
- Walmart – done
- Goodwill – done!
- Farmer’s Market for just 2 more peaches – done :)
- Kroger – done
- Health food store – done
- Gas in the car – done
I can’t believe how much more money packaged foods cost! We don’t buy many granola bars, 100 calorie packs, etc, but those are the kinds of things we need for the trip. I spent more today getting stuff for the trip next than I normally do on a week’s worth of groceries for us! I feel like we got everything we needed to get, plus my dad and Nick’s parents are getting stuff, too, so we should be set.
We have a few more things to pick up tomorrow and I have to exchange some sharpies for the bigger ones, but I think we’re pretty much ready after that.
I got an iced latte while I was out running around and it held me over perfectly until I got home at 2:30 to have lunch.
Lunch today came together pretty quickly – I had some stuff I needed to use up in the fridge, so I just tossed it all in one bowl and went for it.
- arugula/spinach mix
- 1/2 an avocado
- 1 hard boiled egg
- yellow jubilee tomato from our garden!
- drizzled with olive oil
I’ve got laundry going, and I’m going to look up the basic recipe for dinner + dessert tonight. They should both be good.
Do you find that it costs more to eat healthier things or pre-packaged stuff?I know everyone “thinks” that eating healthier costs more, but not for us. I couldn’t believe how much I spent today and most of what I bought was 100 calorie packs of healthy things like nuts, granola bars, and travel stuff (sanitizer, wipes, shampoo), etc.
