Damage done... Grocery shopping.

Yes. It looks like a lot. That's because it was a lot. My fridge was completely EMPTY though...I promise. I'm the kind of girl that either grocery shops once a day, or 1-2 times a month. And this was one of those shopping trips, in which I hope I don't have to return for a good 3-4 weeks.

I'm a firm believer in eating organic when possible... especially here in East Texas where I don't know where the non-organic food is coming from. One of the reasons why I eat a lot of whole, real, simple foods is because I don't like eating when I don't know what went into it! That's why I stick with what I know, and cook. If I do go out, believe me.. I have already done my research, and usually am prepared with something to order. ;) Like I've told you before, I'm a planner.

Walmart Grocery Trip:

Surprisingly Walmart has gone to some new lengths to provide us picky eaters with a wide array of organic foods. Thanks to companies like Our World and Earthbound Walmart has come through. :) For me, its worth the extra few bucks. A head of cabbage and a bag of romaine lasts me a while too. Walmart even carries Greek yogurt! Who else remembers the days when Greek yogurt could only be purchased at Trader Joe's? Oh, how times have changed. Honestly, thank God.

My organic produce and conventionally grown bananas (up the wazoooo- I'm planning on many bowls of "Whipped Banana Oats" KERF style. That woman is a food blogger extraordinaire and I'm in awe everytime I read. I just recently joined the blog community, and I feel like catching up and re-reading all of her old posts.

Single packaged frozen chicken breasts- for the single, one plate girl that I am. And PB &CO flavored peanut butter! I was so surprised Walmart carried it. It was exactly what I was looking for, and they had it. *Victory DANCE!*
