We normally get our groceries at a local grocer on sunday afternoons, but yesterday we decided to go hunt down the trader joes here in Madison. It wasn’t bad, they didn’t have everything I needed, and I’m not a fan of going to 20 different stores to buy things, but we did get some good stuff, for a good price.
I figure, the whole organic movement is more expensive, and there are many unknown facts or misleading beliefs about things being labeled as organic, so I’m not going all crazy and buying everything that way because it’s a waste of money, but there are a few too many refine, far far away from natural state foods, so to have at least some of the cupboard staples that we have replaced with more natural things is very needed if I’m going to make this eating better and healthier a way of life.
First step to obtaining healthier foods in my house: I plan on keeping my flour and sugar ( no more refined sugar,I’m going with evaporated cane juice after thorough research ) more natural because I like to bake a lot, and changing just those 2 ingredients alone significantly changes the make up of foods like muffins, which mr. LeFan and I both love, but I haven’t been making because they’re not the healthiest of foods. Now, I can start baking things again and not feeling so bad about it, assuming I don’t eat it all in 1 sitting of course :)
