The question I get asked most lately, is what I eat on a regular basis. I am in no way a food blogger, but I sure do love to cook and have grown to love a really healthy way of eating. After our Whole30 in the spring, we’ve changed a lot about our eating habits and what I buy at the store. Here’s the breakdown for you.
This is my mudroom bench after a bulk grocery haul. With 3 growing boys in the house, I always start at Costco or BJs to buy as much as I can. I get basically the same things each week, then go to Whole Foods or a grocery store for more organic things or things I don’t buy in bulk.
Meats: I’m pretty picky about the meat I buy. I get wild fish, organic beef, uncured, nitrate free bacon and hot dogs (Applegate or Pederson Natural Farms), organic chicken sausages (I like Aidells brand the best) and Applegate oven roasted turkey from the deli. (The prepackaged one has nitrates, but the deli one doesn’t.)
Flavor: If you eat bland food, it gets boring…fast. I buy roasted red peppers, pepperoncini, saurkraut and lots of spices. They keep the meals interesting and different.
My kids drink milk and cheese and eat snacks just like any other kid. I really try to only get cereals that have no colors or dyes in them and I’m working hard to avoid TBHQ and BHT. At the end of the day, they’re kids and I’m not saying no to everything. I just try to keep the “healthier” stuff in the house and let them have treats in other places.
I took some pics of some of my recent meals. Some of them look more appetizing than others, but I wanted to show you some of my usuals. And if you want major food overload, follow me on Snapchat, (stilettodiapers) because I post a LOT of food there.
I eat a big breakfast. Usually 2 eggs, 1/2 avocado and veggies of some sort every day. I like the frozen pepper/onion mix and I’ll throw in spinach, mushrooms, prosciutto, leftover potatoes or sweet potato cubes as I have it in the fridge.
