Trader Joe's Haul

Do you ever just fall off hard with a diet? You tell yourself just one bite, and then it turns into two months of bad eating? You tell yourself tomorrow is a new day, I will start next Monday, I will start fresh next month. I tried each day, but sometimes things got really stressful, and pizza seemed to be the answer. I felt like complete shit too. I don't even know what happened. We had vacations, weddings, selling our house (which is on hold for 2016). SO MANY THINGS were happening all at once. Now that birthdays, vacations, weddings are all over - it's time to start fresh. I refuse to go into the holiday season continuing to eat like this. I couldn't tell you the last time I ate this poorly.

So, I went to Trader Joe's and stocked up on all the essentials. I am not planning on doing another Whole30 anytime soon, but I want to eat 95% this way. The other 5% will be for smoothies, and Paleo waffles. 

I love stocking up on quick meals that the whole family can enjoy. Trader Joe's frozen turkey burgers, chile lime chicken burgers, and their organic ground beef burgers are a life saver. The kids love them, and they are ready in less than 15 minutes. I love making tuna fish, and making little plantain chip sandwiches with them - SO GOOD!! If you are having a hard time finding Whole30 approved bacon, I really recommend their sliced prosciutto. You can make egg muffins with it, and it's really good when bake it in the oven. 

Glad to be back on track!!
