Hey Good People! As we discussed in steps 1-3 of organizing your way to success, almost each event of our daily lives calls for a list (of things to do). When the event comes to grocery, if my bestie and I aren’t exchanging healthy, editable ideas then my little sister, the foodie and I are mixing-up tasty thoughts! Still, I am geeked about sharing my grocery list for the week with you. Not to mention, I look forward to receiving grocery list suggestions from you to share with our fellow guests at the Penthouse. At any rate, take this list as an inspirational boost to your grocery-shopping ideas. There is good nutritious food on the list. Have fun tweaking it to fit your unique dietary style, But first I will share with you the little I know about organic/whole, natural, and gmo foods.
A Tad-Bit About My Shopping Style
Usually, I shop for groceries twice a week (on Sun & Wed or Mon & Thur). I either shop from the same list or note other groceries needed in preparation for the remainder of the week. So, you can look forward to a “mid-week” grocery list as well! More importantly, I shop for food that is whole (naturally grown food having no nutrients removed from them) or organic (food derived from living matter without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial agents). Also, I try avoiding food that has been altered genetically, aka genetically modified organisms (GMO). Note: Organic food can be modified and still labeled “organic”; Consider organic grapes, some are seedless and some even with cotton flavor! (delicious too,?) As long as the flavor added to the grapes are considered “natural,” the grapes can be classified “organic.” Natural, for those of us who must know, is vaguely defined as food that has undergone minimum processing. As of October 2018, FDA has not engaged in rule-making to establish a formal definition for the term “natural”.
In all honesty, if my body didn’t recognize the difference between natural food and un-natural food, I wouldn’t say it was so, but it is [bleeping] so! In addition to the “tad-bit” above, whenever possible, I choose locally, or USA grown food. One more thing, It’s not as easy as I have written! If circumstances don’t cater to my preference, I simply do the best I can! Now for the List ! (Sorry, I know that was a little more than a tad-bit ?)
