When you go to the grocery store, do you plan out what you are going to get? Or do you just throw things in the cart as you go?
To keep my crazy busy life a little more organized, I always print out a grocery shopping list and write down exactly what I need to get. I usually start with the basics, milk, eggs, bread, meat, fruits and vegetables.
Since starting my
diet life change a few months ago and after going through my Mamavation Mom campaign, I have swayed away from food that comes in boxes and cans and have tried to purchase more fresh produce, whole grains, and better snack choices for the girls. It hasn’t been easy to get my family to adjust. For one, it’s more expensive to buy fresh, natural, organic, and the “better” stuff. Plus kids love sugar. At least mine do. I do find that we tend to eat smaller meals now and don’t eat out nearly as often as we used to before.
For me, our lifestyle change has been huge for us this year.
Last week, I went to Fred Meyer with the girls in tow. As I finished unloading my cart full of groceries on to the belt, the cashier – a pretty young girl probably in her early twenties said something to me that just really made me feel great. She said,
“It’s so nice to see someone buying healthy food. Especially with kids.”
I did not expect to hear that from anyone, let alone her. She continued to talk about how many parents come through her line with nothing but junk food. She talked about how she has changed her lifestyle as well, and it really makes you notice more of what is around you.
Now, don’t get me wrong. We’re not perfect. They do get a cookie from the bakery every time we go to the store, and I still buy them Annie’s Crackers, Pirate Booty, and granola bars which are very popular in our house.
The thing is my kids are young enough now, that I can try to teach them to make better choices.
After hearing that from a total stranger, it made me feel like this was another one of my mom victories!
