My members know how to shop!



24th July 2016
Believe you can and you're halfway there.  Theodore Roosevelt
Well it was a disturbed night, lots of noise going on outside my window, I don't normally sleep with it open so I'm more aware of people I think, the dog woke me at 3am to go up garden, the fire alarm decided to let out a squeal at 5am, just the one mind ya, on a positive I managed to go back to sleep and stayed there till the dog decided to wake me up again at 8am, little Shiz Tzu!  8am though - go me!  I'm all good now though, despite the interruptions, I've had a good few hours sleep and it looks like it's going to be another lovely day, loving it I am.

Did my shop in Lidls yesterday on the way back from my meeting, it is a good shop, it really is, avocado for 59p this week, I do love them, despite their high points.  I bought and cooked a delicious gammon joint in my slow cooker which I had some for tea with bulgur wheat, sweetcorn and broccoli, I've decided I'm not really a broccoli fan unless its covered in a sauce or in a soup.   I enjoyed the bulgur wheat, but think I haven't mastered cooking it yet so will persist and try again, I want to try and use more of these grains as I really like them and they're much cheaper if you cook them yourself rather than buying the microwave pouches.

This week in my meetings we've been putting together a Super Shopping List to help us start healthy, think about it, if you shop healthy, you're more likely to eat healthy - true story!  You can't eat what you don't buy, simple but effective.   Here's how it looks with everyone's ideas combined and typed up;

I think it just shows not only do we all like food, but we eat a varied diet and if any of us dropped our shopping list on the floor in the supermarket, no one would be able to tell we were trying to lose weight if they picked it up! 

Shop healthy - be healthy!

Here's to a cracking good day BeYOUtiful, whether you've got to shop today or not!
