I Love To Shop

Yes... Like all women I LOVE TO SHOP.
BUT! More than shopping for clothes, I love to grocery shop each week.
I look forward to finding great deals on healthy foods and checking out the weekly add at our local Farmers Market Grocery Store.
Each week for our shopping cart is different depending on what is in season or what is on-sale.
Eating healthy does not have to be expensive IF you know what you are looking for or how to will eat/prepare it throughout the week.
I get a lot of the same questions often and one of them is "what do you eat?".
Well, I took a picture today after grocery shopping.
We have most of the meat we will need that we already bought (chicken, lean ground beef, etc.)
and we have oatmeal, almond milk, and eggs already... so the picture below isn't the complete picture.
Grocery Shopping :)

I bought a ton of produce today- Kale, spinach, bell peppers, apples, mangoes, blackberries, oranges, cauliflower, romaine lettuce, celery, mushrooms, yams, pineapple (already cut up)
I bought frozen strawberries and frozen raspberries. Plain Greek yogurt, fat fee cottage cheese, Udi's Gluten Free Pizza crust and 2.5 pounds of ground turkey.
Finally, canned pumpkin, instant coffee (for my protein shakes... recipe soon), cocoa roast almonds by Emerald (you have to try these), Ezekiel Bread, Tazo Tea and Quinoa.
I love fresh spinach or bell peppers in my egg whites in the morning.
I have recently discovered veggie smoothies. I put a handful of spinach, kale and different fruits in a blender. When you think veggies in a smoothie I'M SURE you think... "grossssss!"... I defiently did, but I tried it and now I can't get enough!!

Frozen Raspberries, Blackberries, Kale, Spinach, Half of A Banana, Water & Ice
Today I bought Tosca Reno's new The Eat-Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook and saw a recipe for a veggie smoothie. I will have to share with you all after I try it.
I am still flipping through the cookbook, but everything I have seen so far looks so delicious.
Fresh, whole, clean foods are really fun to cook with. Everything I have ever made from these cookbooks or clean recipes I have found taste SO GOOD! I don't use salt in my cooking and shy away from sugars.
Pick up an Oxygen Magazine or an Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook... I promise you won't get "bored" eating clean and healthy.
It's not a diet... It's a way of life!
Thank you for listening!
