How the other half shops ...

May 15th, 2015 at 09:57 am

DH took the day off to watch the boys' Spring Sing at school. We then had a $25 gift card to spend at the upscale grocery store (foodie organic Heaven, apparently).

I understand the importance of making wise food decisions for one's family; I'm embracing some small changes this week forward.

We wandered aimlessly before deciding the funds must be spent because we wouldn't be returning (we've had the gift card at least several years).

We looked for ginger and ground flaxseed- no luck on either of those. Frown Here is what we spent:

$10.99 for take and bake organic pizza
$2.99 x 2 Lentil soup mixes
$6.99 on honey roasted peanuts
$2.50 for a protein bar

OOP was $1.51.

What I am doing this week for healthier living:
1) smoothies x 3 mornings breakfast
2) home made no-bake energy bites
3) salads x 3 lunch/dinner
4) making homemade air freshner w/essential oil
5) only 1 2L of soda to go with pizza.

    I think it's maybe the other 10 percent!

    You couldn't find ginger or flaxseed at a upscale organic food heaven? I'm shocked, because those are pretty basic.

    Check them out - I see their real specialty is selling prepared foods - and they have an extensive alcohol list. Normal groceries - not so much. Frown

    Sigh people see organic = healthy. Pirates booty is still an organic cheetoes. Which I enjoy crunchy cheetoes but I don't think it's healthy even pirates booty. Under no circumstances neither is organic 365 whole foods oreos. Both are just organic versions of junk food.

    It seems more like a deli than a grocery store.

  7. laura/deacon's wife Says:

    @ MEC, I think you are totally correct that it is a deli. I suppose to me "Grocer" means grocery store ... again, way more that I'd ever consider spending (not that I even can!) Smile
