Ugh the Grocery Store! The place I dread the most, Honestly!

And there you have it; I keep my list simple and routine. Of course I don't buy everything on this list each week; I purchase the items that are on sale for the week or what looks to be the freshest and in season.  I try to buy local as much as possible and now that summer is upon us I will get most of our veggies from the garden we grow ourselves.

Once you adapt and change your habits it seriously because routine. Train your brain, you train your body and it becomes a hard habit to break!
I hope this helps any of you that might be trying to eat cleaner.

Hope you had a great weekend,
I spent mine in the garden; now to watch the weeds grow...Ha!

**Please note, all items are colored pertaining to the 21 Day Fix.**
