grocery shopping…

September 5, 2008

i went grocery shopping! yipee!

i went to market basket with tommy this morning- they’re always crowded no matter what day, or time of day we go. no surprise…cus they have great prices! i saw so many items that are very popular on other blogs (annie’s, kashi, luna bars, etc) at pretty decent sale prices…i’m sure way better than whole foods or the like…so get yourself to a market basket. they rock!

for myself, i stuck to the staples (meat, dairy, veggies, cereal, etc) but i decided that each week i would budget some money towards a “fun food shop” like shopping at whole foods, farmers markets, or an ethnic store. my meals have been incredibly boring lately and i think this will help get me out of the rut.

anyway, enough about food shopping, and more about eating…

tommy made me a piece of white toast with skippy natural peanut butter and a banana. aww…cute, right?

around noon, i had a handful of dried pineapple and mango (i went for seconds on the pineapple). i love dried fruit! my favorite is the freeze-dried stuff at trader joe’s. unfortunately that stuff ain’t cheap!

for lunch…i had japanese buckwheat noodles with dipping sauce. they’re called “momil gooksoo” in korean. basically buckwheat noodles that you dip in a sauce. i buy it bottled…but it’s easy to make yourself at home- the ingredients are bonito flakes, soy sauce, mirin…tastes like a mild, sweet soy sauce. i water mine down a lot and add chopped scallions.

one bundle of the noodles was two servings..which is what’s pictured and what i ate…one serving is: 190 calories, 2 grams fat, and 35 grams carbs, not bad right? the sauce is probably like <30 calories. a light and refreshing meal. now if only it was paired with some sushi…mmm….
