I forgot to mention, we are starting our resolution early. The only reason, you ask? Because Hubs gets paid the week before New Year's and a week after.....we figured we should start early, rather than late. :)
This afternoon, I did my first "healthy" shopping trip. I was nervous. I was feeling slightly overwhelmed, and nervous about finding the right foods for our family and if my little kiddos would even eat the stuff I was making.
I pushed those nervous feelings aside and rolled into Wal-Mart (we do not have ANY options around here, in fact I had to drive 45 minutes just to get to a Wal-Mart). I started in the beverage section, in search of an organic juice......no luck. Do you have any suggestions?
Then I moved to the dairy section in search of organic yogurt. SCORE! Now, I just have to see if my babies like it. :) Soy milk was also on my list, so I picked one a cartoon (vanilla).
I picked up a organic, gluten free snacks.....and Kashi cereals. Then I grabbed a couple bags of frozen fruits and vegetables before I proceeded to the produce section. I purchased our usual fruits and vegetables (in a larger quantities) and a few new flavors to try.
I didn't really expect to find soy based cheese and vegetable hot dog. I picked these up, and hoped they tasted alright. :)
It was about $50 more to purchase these items compared to my usual grocery shop, however I didn't have any coupons. So, once I know the brands I will be purchasing I can start collecting the coupons to lower our cost.
Wish us luck!
