Today I picked up a bunch of new products to try at Independent. I didn’t go shopping with plans to try new products, however all of them were on sale, so I guess you could say the marketing worked on me!! The way I see it, I really enjoy trying out new products at the grocery store–and it’s rare for me to buy a new product unless it is on sale–so I wait it out, buy things on sale, and then I decide if I’ll buy it regular price again.
Here’s what I picked up today:
In my last post, I said I would be posting about “time-saver” recipes in the near future. While I don’t have any recipes to share right now, I have a few tips I thought I’d share to save time and eat healthy during the work week…
- Cut up your fruits and veggies at the start of the week. As much as I’d love to say this is fun, I really don’t like doing this chore. However, this is the only way I find that we get through our produce without it going bad. If I am feeling extra organized, I put fruit and veggies in baggies or tupperware so it’s ready to go for lunches.
- Plan for at least one “lazy” meal every week. I used to avoid relying on frozen food for meals during the week, however I have found it’s really good to have one lazy meal every week. Ours this week is the frozen lasagna. I find that having a lazy meal motivates me to plan and prepare healthier meals the other days because I have more energy.
- Find ways to use up leftovers. A couple weeks ago, we had soft shell tacos. I don’t know about you, but we always have leftover shells after we are done eating up the taco fillings. This time, we made breakfast burritos with the shells. If you have a random ingredient and don’t know how to use it up, I’d recommend Googling it-you just never know what you will find.
Hope you have a great week 🙂
