Some people hate grocery shopping. I just don’t see it. I LOVE grocery shopping!
I have some pictures of a few of the highlights of today’s grocery items…including some dairy-free options! And some not-so-dairy-free items, haha. I’m slowly making progress.
FIrst of all, here is this morning’s breakfast:
The last serving of my zucchini bread
plus some white fluff…cottage cheesey
Then it was off to get the groceries. I was in foodie Heaven seeing some new products that I have been wanting to try!
The first item I broke into was this Amy’s bean, rice, and cheese burrito
I liked this a lot. But how could I NOT like anything made by Amy? I can see this in my future a lot for lunches once school is out. (Yay for no cafeteria food!)
These next two items I was very excited about.
Almond milk and Hemp milk…I sampled both of them and to my surprise…I actually liked them!! This makes me so happy that I can at least replace my milk and have no complaints. I think this will be a great start towards going dairy free. The almond milk has only 40 calories per one cup serving! I also love that it is unsweetened because I try to keep my sugar intake as low as possible. I can see the almond milk being my go-to milk alternative. The hempmilk was very good…but it is also more calorie dense and has added sugar from the brown rice syup. So I was thinking maybe I could mix the two of these together when I want the hempmilk. I could also eventually order some unsweetened hempmilk online…if I realllly wanted to.
White Chocolate Wonderful! The dark chocolate dreams and mighty maple were lonely, so I brought home a friend of theirs.
Here are some bars and a single serving of Jay Robb vanilla protein:
Oikos plain and Sabra’s roasted garlic hummus:
I found this for the first time…100% whole wheat three cheese tortellini. I can’t WAIT to try this!
I also got some raw goat cheese!! Somehow I forgot to take a picture, but since seeing it on Gina’s blog so many times, I have been on the look out for this and was so happy to find it today!
Then later in the afternoon, I decided it was time to Shred it with Jillian…level 2. I really went for it and by the time I was done, I was so sweaty!! I love getting in a good workout..it makes me feel amazing.
I also decided to do some baking…This is a recipe that I haven’t made for awhile…and I really don’t know why because it is fabulous!!! Yet another way to eat oats…here is the recipe:
2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk of choice (I used half almond milk, half hemp milk)
1/2 cup Egg Beaters (or 2 eggs)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (or two mashed bananas)
1/4 cup flaxmeal
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs ground cinnamon
Combine wet ingredients and add dry ingredients. Bake in sprayed pan at 350 for 35-45 min. keeps well in refrig. Or freezer.
*can add in other goodies or toppings such as:
- protein powder
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- chocolate/carob chips
- fruit/dried fruit
And that’s all for me! I will leave you with a pic of Jaci! :D She looks a little suspicious, don’t you think?
She has a thing about my fuzzy socks. You see…she somehow thinks that these are “her” toys. Whenever she gets excited she runs over to the basket where my fuzzy sucks are and grabs one out. Well today, she decided that one was not enough…she managed to grab SIX socks and run into the livingroom with all of them in her mouth. hahahaha
