We try to eat Real Foods. What does that mean to us? Our food should be whole, unprocessed and nutrient dense. We started making changes to our diet about a year ago. Our changes have been very slow and deliberate. We still have alot of room for improvement before we are eating an optimum diet.
Last week we did well sticking to our dinner menu but not so good with breakfasts. A couple of great dinners were the Stuffed Burritos on Tuesday and the Sloppy Joe Bowls on Thursday but probably the favorite of everyone was homemade sushi on Friday night. We used to do pizza most Friday nights but added sushi this month after I learned how to make it last month. It is so easy! I can’t believe that I didn’t learn it years ago.
This week we are still eating out of our freezer and pantry for the most part. Every Monday I tally up what we spent on food for the previous week. As of last Monday, we had spent $108.25 so that is a big benefit to eating out of the freezer/pantry.
No school or work on Monday this week. Yippee!
