Whole Foods Haul. 🍅🥗🌶🥩🧀🥓I know a lot of people say they can’t do keto or eat organic or pasture-raised because it’s expensive and you know what? They’re damn right. This “one bag wonder” here cost me about $70. It often seems like the less number of ingredients on my list, the higher my grocery bill is. However I no longer see my grocery bill as a burden, but rather as an investment into my health, happiness, and future. While I do pay more on a weekly basis than I used to, I also save money by no longer taking the medications I used to or having to visit my doctor as often as I once did. I’ve also learned to buy organic and local and pasture raised when it counts. My top items I always try to buy organic, pasture raised, grass fed, and/or local are: meat, butter, cream/milk, eggs, and chees. When it comes to fruits and veggies I look not only to the “dirty dozen” list but I also look at the types of fruits and veggies I’m buying. For example, does it have an outer casing that protects the insides (like an avocado or lemon) or do I eat the whole kit and kaboodle (like strawberries or celery). While this is by no means a scientific process, it is one that I use to help gauge my organic-meter. So why is my logic different for meats and cheeses? With the amount of animal products I eat I try to be as conscious as possible as where they’re being sourced from. A big part of my lifestyle changing and turning to Keto was not only to know and understand “what” was in my food, but also “where” my food comes from. .
On the menu for lunch today is a yummy jalapeño cheddar burger bowl. Stay tuned!
