Grocery List

We just went grocery shopping (early) to beat the Black Friday and Christmas crowds. Boy, did we stockpile the food. With the recent addition of Whole Foods to our neighborhood, we had no trouble making a sizable dent in the grocery budget.

We try to eat healthy foods. Superfoods. (Great book!) Rarely do we eat out and fast food never sounds appealing. We feel better when we eat well. High fructose corn syrup is the enemy - as is enriched anything. Many people falsely believe that healthy food doesn't taste very well. Au contraire! So, I decided to pass along my current top 5 favorite healthy food products.

First up, Stonyfield Farm Organic Lowfat Strawberry Yogurt. I've never been a fan of fruit yogurt, but this is reeeally close to dessert. Very creamy. Yum. And no HFCS or artificial sweeteners. This was purchased from Whole Foods.

Next is a new find from WF, it's R.W. Knudsen Organic Goji Berry Juice. This juice is heavenly and it incorporates a Superfood.

Another good snack is Kashi T.L.C. 7 Grain Crackers found at Walmart. If you need more fiber and whole grains, these delicious crackers make it easy.

My favorite cereal is Nature's Path Organic Pumpkin Flax Plus Granola Cereal. Again, it's the best granola I've come across (even Charlotte asks for this for breakfast!) It's available at Walmart, Trader Joe's and WF.

Lastly, Triple Leaf Tea Cold and Flu Time. This tea is a little tougher to find (also available online here). At the first sign of feeling a little under the weather, we drink a cup or two and start to feel better right away. Continue drinking the tea as directed and it definitely shortens the duration of your cold. I give this as gifts to family and friends. It even tastes good!

Do you have favorite health foods? I'd love to hear about them in the comments!

Happy Thanksgiving!

No favorite health foods for me. I eat everything: good, bad and in-between. I've had that yogurt before and it was so good.

I eat that pumpkin granola, too! I mix it with the Nature's Path bran/flax cereal (the blue box) and ground flax. Yummm.

I think FiberOne bars were my favorite "health" food before I got pregnant. Now I can't even stand the sight of them, but they're actually really good. We used to buy them at Costco.

Thank you for your sweet comments. My pregnancy so far has been a lot like my twin sister's and she just found out she's having a girl. But really, who knows! We should find out in Jan/Feb and I'm really excited. I have NO clue about boys names but girl names I have a few ideas. :)

It's such a busy time of year for me that I am VERY behind on my favorite past-time; I miss blogging, and you've posted quite a few entires since I last stopped by!

So I wanted to say that the "eating healthy" way of life is something that I am slowly, year-by-year, becoming better at. I'm light-years behind you guys, but I agree that fast-food is completely unappealing, and we also rarely eat out. That's mostly a "budget" issue more than a health issue, but you're right. Eating-in is definitely easier on the waist-line!

(And, the apron is very cute!)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Diane!

I love all these foods and eat them every chance. It's funny how one can be in a fog of unhealthy eating and not realize how poorly you feel until you change your eating habits. You really are what you eat. Now that I have been eating better, when I do eat something that is less than optimum I can really feel the difference.
