Grocery shopping and the new normal
Thursday, March 19, 2020
I took a trip to my grocery store last night, and the shelves were mostly picked-over and bare. I was hoping to pick up some peanut butter and almond milk, but no such luck. Instead, I came away with a few thoughts about my habits that can hopefully improve (1) my food wastefulness and (2) my diet choices.
This morning, I mixed my protein shake with water, instead of almond milk. You know what? It was pretty good. And it made me think about how wasteful and high-maintenance my grocery shopping habits have been. I drink Diet Coke like it's going out of style.
What nutrition choices am I making that may be wasteful? How can I make efficient, healthy meals with fewer ingredients and more nutrition? I'd like to really simplify some of my shopping and eating. It seems like the prudent thing to do, during a time like this.
Tell me, have you made any changes to your nutrition choices or grocery shopping habits in the past few weeks as we adjust to our new normal?
