WW has this new plan, The Momentum Plan, that emphasizes the use of "filling foods"....this is not completely unlike what I was already doing on Flex, which was trying to focus on Core items, but counting points. Come Wednesday, I am recommitting and facing the dreaded scale knowing that I have probably put on a few pounds in the two weeks since I last weighed because I've been eating everything in sight. So, tonight I went to the store and did some stocking up:
Vegetables (kale, mushrooms, potatoes, butternut squash, brussel sprouts, bananas)
Fresh ginger and garlic
Bulk beans (black and garbanzo)
Bulk hummus mix
Bulk curry lentil soup mix
Bulk nutritional yeast
Bulk whole wheat couscous
Light sour cream
Whole wheat penne
Organic instant oatmeal
Spices (green chile powder, cinnamon)
Bulk tea - red chai
Flax oil pills
I also got a big ol' caesar salad and some tomato basil soup from the deli, a "Real Simple" magazine and a tea infuser.
It seems like a lot of money, and Central Market is pricier than other stores, but the bulk items I got will last me a long time. I LOVE buying bulk grains, beans and spices.
Hopefully, I can stick to my guns and start cooking at home more often. Eating out should be an exception, not the rule.
