Alright – here we go. Sorry for people whom this might bore, but this is a good way for me to talk about whole eating and how I’m doing on this challenge for the month of May. Here we go:
1. Knowing I am doing this challenge (and trying the cash envelope system for my food budget) made me shop differently in the grocery stores today. I didn’t pick up snacks which would be different if I weren’t doing this challenge.
Here we go:
Breakfast – at Flying Biscuit Cafe in Cameron Village (Raleigh) – shared a meal with Rachael. Biscuit with their homemade cranberry butter. 1/2 piece of french toast with vanilla creme anglaise and raspberry sauce. 1 egg, 1 piece of their chicken sausage, 3/4 piece bacon, 1/2 bowl of their homemade creamy grits.
Shopped at Fresh Market: rainbow chard for some soup and asparagus bc it was on sale
Lunch – at Watts Grocery in Durham – small bowl of local granola, local yogurt with fresh fruit. Housemade english muffin with blueberry preserves.
Shopped at TJ, Whole Foods, and Target: bananas, apples, green lentils.
Snacked on 1/4 cup trail mix (goldfish, life cereal, craisins, peanuts, m&ms) – I was making them for our teacher training tomorrow at church.
Dinner: 1 red potato and 1/2 small onion – roasted with evoo and s/p. 1/2 beefsteak tomato with some sea salt. Looking forward to that dinner.
That will be it! So, halfway decent – but better than I’ve done the whole month – especially with sharing the meal at Flying Biscuit. Gotta do it again tomorrow.
EAT LOCAL! EAT FRESH! It is easy!
