A Fresh Start


I have a goal to only clean, healthy foods this year. It is always my goal, but a new year seems like the perfect time to start fresh. I may occasionally post my day's menu here, as a way of keeping track of how well I am meeting my goal.


I noticed this morning that I am low on some of the important healthful ingredients that I like to keep on hand. I am out of whole wheat flour, for example, and whole flax seed. There are no nuts left in the house. In regard to fruit, we are down to a few pink lady apples, two or three bananas, and a few frozen blueberries and cranberries. As I finish this post, I will be heading off to write a meal plan for the week and a really good shopping list. I've gotten out of the habit of shopping with a list... I rush in to the grocery store on my way home from classes and grab a few things, and my cupboards are beginning to reflect the effects of that haphazard approach. I can't promise a cornucopia of posts here, but I hope to post more often than last year (which I think was a grand total of "Once.")

your photo looks yummy - soup?

Aisling said...

Susan, Yes. The other day I was hoping to make homemade alphabet/vegetable soup. I could not find the abc noodles at my local grocery (though they usually carry them) so I loaded in the veggies, barley, and a handful of farfalle. As is often the case, I didn't meaasure ... just cooked. lol! Hard to blog about cooking when you don't measure ingredients.


Thanks for the nice comment! :)

I would love it if you'd post your menus when you have time. We are eating healthier too so I'm always looking for ideas!

Karla, Nice to see you in blogland! I will try to post at least some of my healthier menus. I wish you success in your healthier eating plan!

Dee, I'm doing really well this year. I'm really pleased. We'll see how things go with the summer round of open houses, bbqs, parties, etc. :)
