**Went shopping today at herb and spice as well as whole foods. Got a lot of stuff in bulk at herb and spice to have the ingredients when I need them. I spent just under $300 on everything, but I know that bulk and buying ingredients is expensive. I feel bad when I waste any food thought because of how expensive everything is and the people who don’t have food, I need to work on using everything before it goes bad.  I’ve written everything in my fridge on a whiteboard, so that I can make sure to erase everything before it goes bad. I’ve got to try different things to figure out what will work and what doesn’t to make less waste. Everything is ready for my smoothie journey and I am very much looking forward to it. I have hemp hearts, chia seeds, frozen fruits, almond milk, matcha, wheat grass powder and most important of all a food processor/blender!

**Smoothie journey started yesterday and I’m super stoked about it! Got all my ingredients and machinery needed as well, I’m super pre-pared as per usual! First one wasn’t the best, but I can only get better. This morning’s smoothie was delicious, but who can screw up peanut better and chocolate? One thing I like about the smoothies is how you can pack it with a lot of nutrients you wouldn’t normally get or may have missed. Just blend them up with delicious things and you’re good to go! I also can’t wait to try my hand at making my own bread as well.

** I find it’s getting easier and I’m getting more excited trying new things and experimenting. The other day I made energy bites and tonight I’m making muffins. I feel like I’m making more effort with new things and this ‘new healthy’ then I did with my regular diet. In regards to eating things at home anyways. I haven’t been eating out at all, I’m a little nervous after I became more conscious/ aware. I’m not gonna lie, I’m kinda scared to ask about things, I feel like if I do I’ll be grossed out or not be able to eat anything, period. As for resources, I’ve found pinterest to be very helpful with recipes, measurement substitutions/ replacements, things to look out for and advice for groceries. It’s pretty costly if you’re doing everything ‘properly’. Like ensuring you get the right amount of nutrients and vitamins. But I cannot re-iterate how good I feel and how it feels to eat organic and healthier then I was. Mind you I didn’t eat bad, but you can always eat better.

Love Always,
