In case you havent noticed a good 25% of this blog is about cooking and food, especially healthy food. I have really found pleasure this past summer in cooking meals and learning new recipes, or modifying recipes to make them Weight Loss friendly. Grocery shopping is in my top 5 favorite things to do in my spare time also so that helps with the whole cooking thing, I know a lot of people dread grocery shopping, but I love it!
Anyways the last few weeks my cooking has dwindled a bit because I am DIRT POOR! With my whole job thing being delayed 2 weeks and bills galore grocery shopping has been put on the back burner to make room for tuna sandwiches and whatever else I can scrape together with my cupboard remnants…ugg. We get paid on friday so hopefully I can stock up this weekend with good stuff. I actually decided to make a list of stuff to get based on a few recipes I want to make:
-Potatoes (10 Smaller Yellow ones)
-Onion (2 Larger ones)
-Milk & Light Soy Milk
-Pico De Galo
-Tomatoe Soup (low Sodium)
-Stewed Tomatoes (2 Cans)
-Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
-Red pepper flakes
-Granny Smith Apples
-Fat Free Half and Half (yes its a real thing)
This is going to be what I need to make a ton of soups! YUM! Also it’s a lot of basic ingredients I need for other things. Making lists helps me a lot! Im hoping to have at least 4 new recipe post for next week. Tonight Im going to try to whip up some easy meals for us to take to work this week so we dont have to eat out. Im also on the hunt for some good healthy cooking blogs. It seems the healthy ones often dont have pictures, and the ones that do have pictures arent really health based (and yes by health based I do mean lower calorie).
Oh and I REALLY want to make these:
