Shopping Trip!

So after work, me and the bf went to Trader Joe's and I picked up a buncha stuff. I got:
  • 3 containers of TJ's quick cooking steel cut oats (I really wanted to try the regular steel cut oats, but that's not convenient for me right now)
  • 2 guacamole kits
  • granny smith apples
  • brown pears
  • celery
  • 2 bags of baby spinach
  • 2 bags of whole carrots
  • Ezekiel bread (sesame)
  • flaxseed tortilla chips
  • desert mesquite honey (never had it, thought I'd give it a try)
  • clover honey
I'm soooo excited that I have some stuff to juice with and some breakfast stuff. I asked if they had millet, but they didn't so oats for me! Or I can probably go to Earth Fare or something, but I think I have enough oats to last me a while. As usually, I didn't really spend that much money, a lttle under $50. I know I broke, but I think my health is worth the investment :). Man, I should have bought some berries! Oh well, I think I'm just gonna go to the farmers market on Saturday. Everything has been grown within 50 miles of my town and they have a lot of organic stuff, so that will be really kool. Damn, nevermind, I just looked at the site and berries are not in season, so Trader Joe's I go. At least I can get my kale from there and get some other greens.

Breakfast: TJ's Goldenflax cereal
Lunch: none, I woke up late yet again and had to go to work. I did drink a lot of water with lemon though while I was there.
Dinner: Veggie sandwich from work on dry pita (they usually slather a bunch of butter on it) with lettuce, extra tomatoes, cucumbers, hot peppers, and greek olives. No dressing
Snack: 4 oz Odwalla green drink

Now that I have some of the basic foods I need, I can have more complete meals. For tomorrow, this is just a preliminary meal plan, it may or may not change.

Breakfast: oatmeal with some honey
Lunch: apple-carrot-spinach juice OR a turkey salami sandwich w/ vegenaise
Dinner: veggie sandwich from work OR brown rice I made earlier this week topped with TJ's Pav Bhaji (indian food)
Snack: Raw trail mix or gucamole w/ flaxseed tortilla chips (if I am not too lazy to make it)

Well, I'm off to bed, it's almost 3am. I really should stop going to bed so late. I also have not been to my chiropractor in two weeks, I think I'm gonna go on Monday after class.
