Hello and happy Monday! After Saturday night’s festivities, yesterday was a pretty lazy day. We still made it to church, and I did manage to go grocery shopping and cook an awesome dinner (best dinner we’ve had in a long time!), but most of the rest of the day was spent watching TV, reading, and being very lazy.
My original goal in last week’s set of goals was to limit spending on the POM Party to $100, and I ended up spending $91 in total so that goal was met. On top of that, though, my goal was to limit additional grocery spending, and that was harder than I thought. We ended up having just enough food for the party where all that was left was lunch for Friday, so I really was running low on goods. On Friday, I went to a Farmer’s Market and picked up kale and baby yellow tomatoes, for $5.50 together, and then yesterday I had to go to the store to pick up some things.
For $32, I got:
- Bunch Cilantro
- Green Bell Pepper
- 3 limes
- Red Onion
- Bunch Scallions
- 2 Bananas
- 2 Grapefruits
- Spring Mix (Free from FoodBuzz Coupon)
- Low-Sodium Veggie Broth
- Eden Navy Beans (had a 55 cent off coupon that they doubled)
- Sargento RF Cheddar
- 2 Oikos Greek Yogurt (Coupon for $1 off from website)
- Chobani Honey (free from a giveaway from Alex)
- Light Sour Cream
- Blood Orange Sorbet
Not too bad! So last week, I only spent $32 at the store plus $5.50 at the farmers market, so besides the party I came in under the $50 weekly budget at $37.50. Also, I have enough food to last me through Wednesday, when I leave for Kansas City, MO, so I think I will go way under budget when my $50 replenishes tomorrow as well.
Breakfast this morning was super simple. The Chobani Honey (16 grams of protein!!) sprinkled with the last of FlaxPlus Pumpkin Granola.
Plus a grapefruit.
All together now:
Though simple, this breakfast was super satisfying. This is my first time having a grapefruit in AGES and I almost forgot how much I love them! I used to always eat them with sugar or honey, but in the past year or so I’ve learned to love the tart flavor without any sweetener and find them absolutely delicious.
Are you a grapefruit fan? What’s your favorite way to eat them?
