Sometimes eating healthy can cause some confusion if you don’t read the label completely. For example: sometimes it says healthy for you, good for your heart, etc…but really it’s none of the above. You’ve got to make wise consumer choices and actually read the ingredient list. It use to take me 15 minutes to make a trip to the grocery store. I didn’t look at anything, just grabbed what we needed. Now, when I go, it can take over an hour if I’m really looking for new things to add to our plates that are good and good for us.
Greg is starting to do this a little too, and has even enjoyed the new grocery store that I call home at least once a week for about an hour. When we go, just to pick up a few things, we end up with a cart full each time. The food is SO good, and we enjoy the samples, and the many new food option.
Sometimes eating healthy can cause things that you thought was one thing, to actually be something different all together. For example, Greg picked up some Chinese food for us to make for dinner one evening. He picked up orange chicken. When we pulled it out of the freeze and found out it was “chickenless vegan” orange morsels, I didn’t think he was going to go for it. We made them, no use in wasting food, and actually enjoyed our dinner.
I have become more adventurous in my eating habits too and I’m willing to try new foods that I never would have tried before. I happened to like the chickenless vegan morsels, and pomegranate seeds, and apple pears, and quite a few other things.
Sometimes when you try something new, you might be surprised what you will find that you like.
