So the other month I posted some stuff I found at the store and some of you seemed to enjoy seeing new things…so here are some more that will hopefully help your cupboards without hurting your grocery budget! Since I try to live out what I preach with FFL, continuing to take little steps is what I am doing. Those steps include getting my house as Organic as possible and eating mainly fresh, whole foods.
I found a couple items at Super Target and one at an Organic store in town. Since I have a child, I need to find things that are convenient and not toxic. This can be a challenge with all those processed snacks and crackers out there. My goal is to feed these minimally to her. Here’s a juice drink I found that is similar to something like Capri Sun but all Organic. It’s called Honest Kids. It was with Capri Sun. It was $2.99 for a box of them.
The next is similar to Goldfish. It is 70% Organic. I got it on sale at Target for about $2.50 a box…not bad!
The ZBar is made from Clif. They have several bars and I found this one at the Garden Patch Organic store in Mishawaka. I got the blueberry kind, yum! It’s soft/chewy bar. Loved it. It was about $2.50 or $3.00 a box.
I also decided that buying bread is silly. It’s either processed, that sits for a while on a shelf, or it’s expensive healthier bread that doesn’t taste good. So why not make your own bread?! My mother is an awesome baker, I mean awesome, and she has been gracious enough to make me homemade Organic bread each week. She loves baking. I love cooking more than baking. Someday I will make my own for my family but right now I don’t mind her being so gracious 🙂 I also bought Coconut flour and will attempt my own bread soon with that (which is gluten free and is loaded with fiber).
Last but not least, I have also decided to make my own salad dressings. They can be pretty pricey anyways, so this is good for the budget. I already make an Italian dressing, thanks to my mother-in-law, I have a poppyseed dressing to make, and I would love additional recipes some of you make! I have some research to do to find more.
So these are some of the things I’m doing in my house, hope this gives you ideas. I would love some ideas from you and what you’re doing for your family!
