Grocery Shopping

Hallelujah!  I finally went to the grocery store this afternoon so my kitchen is not looking so sparse like last week.  Hopefully, my budget will like me a little bit better as well.  Grabbing lunches out can definitely add up, but even so, wow, the price of  groceries, like everything else, continues to rise! 

I bought the basics–fruit, veggies, milk, eggs, yogurt, bread, chicken and a few healthy mid-day work snacks (dried apricots and banana chips to supplement the almonds, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries I already have in my pantry), and I did need a treat so I made some Funfetti cookies that I’ll take tomorrow to the kids I tutor (I just learned yesterday that you can make cookies out of cake mix…guess I’ve been living in a hole!  They are oh so yummy.)  My chicken and long grain wild rice casserole is cooked so I have lunch for the next few days as well. 

With the busy lives we all lead, making time to cook can sometimes be a stretch but going into my week with a kitchen full of wholesome foods brings a smile to my face.  A happy tummy is a happy heart. 

On Saturday I did a light three-mile jog to ensure my muscles didn’t cramp, rested today, and tomorrow morning is week two of boot camp!  And I plan to start off the morning with a whole wheat waffle topped with a spoonful of peanut butter.


About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...

    Sal, do you have a crockpot? So many easy, healthy meals to make that are perfect for cold (and busy) winter days! 🙂

  2. I actually do not because I always had roommates who did…so that is another kitchen gadget I need to invest in…
