*pffffffft* thats me huffing and puffing. I have been running around the house today trying to get things clean and get dinner started and completely spaced about getting my blog post ready.
Ironically I thought I did ok this week, no alcohol and I got to the gym twice. Yet, the scale says otherwise and I gained back my 2 lbs from last week? blah.
Since I am lacking in good news and advice, I thought I would just share something new I am doing - I am going organic. OK mostly organic.
Just this week I got my first delivery of beef from grass fed cows. Not only is it better for the environment, its healthier in many ways. If you haven't looked into yet, I urge you to. You can check out "why grass fed" for more info. I am also trying to stick to free range chickens, but responsibly raised pork is proving to be much harder thing to find.
In addition to the beef, I am buying fruits and vegetables from a local co-op. Bountiful Baskets tries to offer baskets of organic fruit/veggies at a reasonable price by buying locally and inseason, the downside is you get whatever comes that week. This is a big step for me, I am picky about veggies and fruit. But my first week was great - I got a ton of stuff and have come up with ways to use almost all of it (all organic and only cost $25)
So far this week I made:
Eggplant Parmesan w/ homemade marinara and asparagus
Lasagna with grass fed beef, squash, and spinich
Potato & Leek soup
Lastly, I am buying all my grains/snacks in bulk from an organic/natural food supplier named Azure Standard. The first delivery is on monday and I ordered a ton of supplies to make my own granola, trail mix, and bread. Now I just need to find places to store it all!
So thats what happened for me this week, big changes.... hopefully they help!
