Rather than spend money on food, I think Central/Southside Virginians need to buy canoes. Is this rain ever going to stop?
I heard we have a little snow coming in tomorrow, so possibly many of you have already been to Food Lion for your “MBT” snow run.
Milk. Bread. Toilet Paper.
Can you imagine how many feet of snow we would have if the last three days were cold enough to have snow instead of rain? I shudder.
Anyway, for the week 1/16-1/22, Food Lion has these healthy or healthy-ish items on sale.
Seedless cucumbers $.99 each (not on the “clean 15” list, but if you need some fresh produce, this would work. Just be sure to peel the skin for a less likely chance of pesticide residue.)
Hass Avocados $.99/each
Sweet onions (bulk) $.89/lb
Navel oranges $3.99/bag
Organic Soy milk $2.69 1/2 gal
My Essentials olive oil $3.00/17 oz. (no idea how pure the olive oil is, but it’s a good price)
Ragu Pasta Sauce 2/$5
Ragu isn’t the healthiest option compared to homemade sauce with organic tomatoes, but who has time for that?
Team this up with some Dreamfields pasta–coupon was in Sunday’s paper for it–and be careful of serving size.
Dreamfields pasta has lower glycemic index so that the simple carbs don’t immediately hit your system as if you ate a cup of sugar.
Make a very tasty large salad and eat it before you even dip out the spaghetti and sauce. With a true serving size of pasta and sauce, you’ll have a relatively healthy meal.
When you are trying to wean and cut back on drive-thru fast food, making simple, tasty meals like this make it easier to make the switch.
Soon (tomorrow?) I’ll share an upcycle project I’m working on to raise money for a missionary. I’m so excited about it!
