has this ever happened to you?


April 2, 2010 by Sarah S.

You go into grocery store for two things: almond milk and goat cheese. You come home with this:

the bountiful feast

Oops? Β  πŸ™‚

Today is such a GLORIOUS day. It’s amazing how a little sunshine can turn life right around. I feel peppy and energetic — for first time this week I don’t feel like going back to bed!

The pups and I hit the outdoor shopping center around 8:30 for a walk prior to store openings and then I entered the Whole Foods and got sucker punched and loved it. Sigh. Well, I decided once in there that I needed some more vegetation AND that I would make HTB a special dinner. Here’s the hint:

slow coooooooookin'

Anyway, back to my shopping. I got my veggies — Beets, Kale, Avos. I got my fruits — Grannie Apps, plums, lemons. And then I got more stuff!

blue eggs!

I’ve been craving eggs a bit lately, and so I decided to get some. I struggled momentarily with this, because a part of me was like: gosh, you’re eating goat’s milk dairy AND eggs? That’s pretty much as non-vegan as you can get. And then I smacked myself in the face and moved on. I never said I was going to label myself as anything, and there I go struggling with myself because I felt like I wasn’t “allowed” to eat the eggs. The focus for me is not to be vegan, but to be healthy. I cut out meat and dairy, as well as processed foods and a lot of gluten products for my health and to slim down. I feel better eating that way. However, if my body is callin’ for some huevos, there’s no earthly reason for me, personally, to deny myself some. Sorry for the rant, but hey, that’s what the blogalicious is for.

Anyway, cute blue eggs. I’ll letcha know how it goes.

I’ve been craving my cuppa Joe these days, so I picked up some So Delicious coconut creamer, because it’s honestly the best non-dairy creamer I’ve ever tasted. The coleslaw is for HTB’s special dinner tonight. πŸ™‚

And this is just a gratuitous shot of the beautiful produce. Love!

It seems so WRONG to have to write a paper on a day like today, but if I don’t write most of it today… well, it’s gotta get done by Tuesday, and trust me, I have plenty of things to do.

HTB was so cute this morning, saying adorable things like, “I can’t wait to get back home to you!” It’s nice when we’re nice :). Perhaps that’s why I decided to make him a special dinner instead of serving up yet another leftover of chicken and broccoli!

Does anyone have lovely Easter plans? We’re going to HTB’s ex-assistant’s house to celebrate. We’re not religious and we don’t have family in this area, so it’s nice that she invited us for a second year in a row! I’m not sure about what I’m going to cook to bring, but I’ll definitely bring something healthy, otherwise I’ll totally succumb to the crispy onion green bean casserole πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful day!

    That happens to me at the grocery store pretty much every time I go… I always make a list, but I have the hardest time sticking to it! I still stay within my budget so I don’t feel too bad about it, but damn. Grocery shopping is one of my favorite things!

    I love that So Delicious creamer, too. It’s awesome!

  2. I think all my grocery store trips turn out that way! That’s sweet of you to make the HTB a special dinner! I asked my hubby if he wanted me to make him something tonight, and he laughed, “It’s Friday! I want take-out!” Ha ha. πŸ˜‰

    I’m all about NO labels! Eat eggs if you’re craving them! I find as soon as I’m “allowed” to eat something, it’s not a big deal and I’ll only eat it if I REALLY want it. Eggs are yummy! Especially with Easter season upon us!

    I’ve got to figure out what I’m cooking for Easter dinner! We’re having friends over, so I know it’s going to be torturous– I’ll have to be cooking a couple things that don’t really fit into my “plan,” if you know what I mean… but we’ll see how it goes. I’ll definitely be indulging in some sort of sweet!! πŸ˜€

    lol, oh yes…PLENTY of times! Esp when things are unexpectedly cheap, I HAVE to stock up.

    LOVED THE SURPRISE MEAL! Kinda wished we would have eaten it on the day you cooked it. Making the decision to go out and enjoy the weather proved quite costly….. in the wallet and physically. πŸ˜‰

    Grocery store trips always end up being alot for me too, especially if it’s a Whole Foods or Trader Joes. Even if I’m not hungry all their yummy foods are just way too temping. Plus, it’s good to stock up, right?! πŸ™‚

  6. Yeah, grocery store = major danger zone for me. I HAVE to make a list or else my wallet suffers.

    I hear ya on the random guilt over buying non-vegan food, and yet I’ve never even tried to call myself vegan in the first place. I’ve just read so much that condemns animal products that it feels just a little wrong to eat eggs or dairy. I do it anyway, but not before that annoying twinge of guilt happens first. Need to break that cycle!
