Grocery Shopping for the Good Stuff
Hi! Happy middle-of-the-week!
I don’t normally participate in WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) because I am FAR from being a healthy living blogger and you probably could care less what I eat anyway.
Today I’m throwing my hat into the WIAW ring though, sort of.
Over the weekend I posted on FB and Twitter that I had a meal prep FAIL.
I really wanted to prep some veggies this week, specifically sweet potatoes and butternut squash. I bought the squash pre-cut and hacked the sweet potato to death. It was hard. Sweet potatoes do not like being cut when they are not yet cooked.
Despite my very poor attempt at cubing the potato, it actually turned out tasting REALLY good thus proving that it’s not what someone looks like on the outside that matters!
All I did was add a spritz of canola oil, a pinch of garlic pepper, a dash of onion powder and a drizzle of honey and then bake for 25 minutes at 350. I don’t do measurements, I go by feel, sorry!!!
I seriously should have made way more of the baked veggies because the little bits were so good and I basically ate them all in one sitting as soon as they came out of the oven. That’s what happens when I taste test something that I end up really liking!
If you’re interested, I also put together a quick video of the stuff that Adam and I got at the grocery store last weekend.
^ Normally we take canvas re-usable bags to the store, but this was an impromptu trip to Publix on our way home from someplace else.
It’s my goal to put together at least one video per week. Most weeks it’ll be a Day in the Life vlog, but today it’s my grocery shopping stuff since I’m on a bit of a hectic schedule this week.
(Yep that’s Cecil on the counter again in the vid. The only time he’s not allowed up there is when I am prepping food and cooking. To get him to stay off at those times I give him something better to do… like eat treats or play with a fun toy.)
I hope that you’re having a great week so far.
Just three days to go until the Miami Half for me!
Do you measure your ingredients precisely when cooking or go by feel?
Best veggie to bake? I’m going to start baking veggies more often because they seem to come out tastier than when simply steamed.
