Groceries have been on my mind lately...for good reason too! I was able to stop by the market over the weekend and picked up some fresh produce that made for a delicious salad yesterday, but my cupboards and fridge were still lacking some good staples.
"What are your staples?", you may ask. In general, you'll find the following at my apartment:
- greek yogurt
- frozen fruit (for smoothies)
- random veggies for salads
- dark chocolate
- soy milk or almond milk (just because I prefer the taste over cow's milk)
- cottage cheese (perfect for protein pancakes)
- peanut butter (it's an obsession...along with the dark chocolate).
In today's grocery run, I hit many of these staples. Some items I bought in excess because they were on sale (i.e. I don't normally buy 6 bags of baby carrots every week), while others I bought out of curiosity (such as the rice cakes...I've never bought them before!)
|My loot! Note the greek yogurt tower. It was half price!|
I usually go for at least 85% cocoa for my chocolate bars, however there was a $1.50 coupon for Nestle Noir chocolate. I wanted to put this bar to the test and see if the shape really affected my appreciation for the cocoa.
|Great expectations...especially with that gold wrapper!|
|Nope...tasted like ordinary dark chocolate to me!|
I guess I'll just have to eat a few more pieces of the chocolate to confirm my conclusion...please excuse me while I do so ;).
