A few people have kindly asked if I’d share recipes I mention in my grocery haul videos. It’s my pleasure to do so. I’m always happy to share meals we enjoy. Read More
I attempted to come up with a snazzy opening to introduce these gorgeous citrus cakes. To do them proper justice. But after a few failed attempts, I realized that these gems speak for themselves. Just as the cookbook they originate from does. Read More
I keep wondering if I should skip the grocery hauls, but then sweet gals (and guys, actually!) let me know they’re waiting for another one. Aw shucks, well I must certainly keep them coming then!
I took the Erin Condren plunge this year and, 4 months in, I’m not regretting it. The size and weekly layout design (separated into morning, day, and night) are perfect for me. I’ll admit I was also initially wooed by how aesthetically pleasing it was. Why not have something functional and pretty? I don’t see anything wrong with that. 😉 Read More
So many grocery hauls being thrown at you. 😉 I hit up Sprouts bright and early this morning ( I love that they open at 7 am). This will be my grocery trip for the week. Read More
Now back to it! Here’s my one grocery trip of the past week. I hit up my tried and true Trader Joe’s and while I was a teeny bit panicked when some items I wanted/needed were still not in stock due to the dock strikes, I calmed down because…is it really that big a deal if I can’t get my coconut oil and mango bites? Perspective, Danielle! Read More
A lovely blog & You Tube subscriber requested I share a full day of what I eat since so much of what I post is food-related. I have a grocery/meal planning series coming up soon so I thought it was a great idea and it sounded easy enough. I also thought it’d be a way to check in on my eating habits. Seeing the good, the bad, the ugly right there on film. Yikes. Taking accountability for the not-so-good choices, encouraging me to keep up the good ones. I’ll admit I was hesitant to share a full day of what goes in my belly. Yes, I feared judgement. But then I reminded myself that, well, who cares?
So yesterday I did document everything I ate (aside from all the water I drink throughout the day). It’s a fairly typical day of eating for me minus the treat out with Munchie. That occurs about once a month. Here are some snapshots of the day and please do watch the video down below, too.
Before dropping Munchie off at school, I had a quick cup of coffee with a splash of half and half (no added sweetener…sigh) and half an overly ripe banana. To give me a little fuel (and to prevent that poor banana from going to waste). I also had a large glass of water right after I woke up.
Many videos I made from December through January will never see the light of day (cue the dramatics). Included in that stash of videos? My grocery and meal planning series. Sadness. But ah well, such is life! I’m starting over and next week, if my computer program allows it, let the series begin! Hip hip!
In the meantime, here you have my grocery hauls for the week. I visited Fresh & Easy and Sprouts. I spent way too much on way too little at F & E. But I hit the jackpot at Sprouts so all is well. No more shopping this week as I’m using up items in my fridge, pantry, and both freezers (the fridge freezer and the garage upright freezer). Thanks for watching!
