Welcome to the late Saturday edition of Food for Friday. lol Trying to come up with a grocery list was kinda tough this week since there was really nothing that we buy on sale. I hate when that happens…cause I usually end up spending a lot more than normal. I ended up spending almost $270 when my budget is between $200 and $250. Before coupons and sale discounts I was up over $300! Course I did end up buying things that we normally don’t like $33 in flea drops for the dogs and cat, $18 for a huge container of olive oil and $16 for a big container of real maple syrup.
It’s even tougher now that I’m still avoiding soy…I have to make changes to recipes or buy more expensive items. I’m making due, though. I’ve been soy free and low fat for over a month now and I haven’t had any stomach pain, which is nice. I have been branching out and trying a few things with soy lecithin in it and so far that hasn’t bothered me. I’m convinced it’s an oil thing as some people can handle lecithin and not the oil. Either way, I’m feeling a lot healthier now that I’m eating more homemade things without preservatives and giving up the junk food.
