Since we've been travelling a lot this month as well as plans for the rest of the summer it feels great to be home this week! We had a full evening of grocery shopping last night and I loved tossing every fresh and new item into our cart. Can't wait for all the good food this week. Travelling is awesome but sometimes it's just good to make it all in your own kitchen.
new items spotted at Trader Joe's this week: Champagne salad dressing, caramelized onion dip & SPF 50 spray sunscreen.
Organic menu items: spinach, stir fry veggies, basil, pasta sauce, black beans, TVP (?), artichoke hearts and lettuce.
Yep, some of our stuff is organic - we try to go by the dirty dozen cheat sheet. We can't afford ALL organic and some organic stuff is just too hard to find since we don't shop at Whole Foods regularly. Despite not buying 100% organic foods we try to stick to 'healthy' stuff like fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains and not-so-processed stuff. We try not to eat high fructose corn syrup, MSG's & hydrogenated oils. Confession - we'll buy Lean Cuisines if they're cheap. Although only about 5 vegetarian varieties exist.
