Someone asked for me to post something about our eating habits. I am sorry I forgot who asked me and sorry I am late at posting it. Here you go:
Things you can always find in my kitchen at any given time.
~fresh baby spinach, always great for a salad, a quiche or throw a handful in homemade soup
~some form of fresh or bagged pasta, if you are able to buy fresh pasta, as in just made please use in a week or freeze--BUY IT! I have a bag of Pasta Mama's Spinach Pasta in the freezer I am going to use this week. (I buy it at local organic grocery stores and I have seen it at the tailgate market)
~canola oil & extra virgin olive oil
~granola, bought in bulk, great for a snack as well as cereal
~almond butter, you grind it yourself at the grocery store and its yummy!!! Use it just like peanut butter.
~frozen veggies, I buy fresh most of the time but bagged frozen is a great easy way to add something to your meal. I want to learn to can because next year I plan to do LOTS of canning.
~tuna, I am a sucker for tuna salad and throwing a can of tuna into fresh pasta with manchego cheese.
~milk, whole milk and almond milk.
~walnuts, great to throw in cereal and use for recipes.
~frozen blueberries, for cereal and pancakes.
~eggs. Fresh from a friends chickens!
We are a 95% organic family. I do not buy organic cleaners, diapers, makeup, shampoo & conditioner, soaps, paper products, sugars or OREO MINT COOKIES!!!!!!!!! The above are just things that compliment meals I prepare. I sit down before grocery shopping and make a menu. I look to see what I have and what needs to be bought. It's easy. I grab my all my recipe sources and I have a great rotation going on. I also love finding a new recipe to add to my rotation.
