eatin' cheap

22 Mar

Happy (end of) Monday everyone!  While Monday’s aren’t my favorite, it feels nice to have one day down and only four to go.  I’m not going to lie – work today was a bit on the stressful side.  It’s just hard getting back into the groove of things after sleeping in and doing only things I love for an entire week.  It’ll get easier, though, at least it better!!

I started off this morning with a green monster per the usual.  I am seriously addicted to my morning GM.  Unfortunately, I am almost out of Amazing Grass.  Jon and I are trying to really buckle down with our budget for the rest of the month, so I may have to go without my grass for awhile (gasp!).

These pics are actually from yesterday.  I only wish I left for work late enough to take pictures in the natural light.  Yea for Sundays!  Besides,  I wore the same outfit, so it’s basically like I took it today:)

Lunch today was leftover Veggie-tel and an apple.

Later I munched on some baby carrots for a snack and then followed that up with Whole soy yogurt and a mix of sliced almonds and Back to Nature granola for toppings on my commute home.  This granola will definitely be up for a review soon because it’s really one of my faves.

I planned on making it to the gym today, but work got in the way.  The teacher I plan with called while I was driving, and we proceeded to try and work out some school stuff for the next hour.  I was sad to miss my workout, but Jon and I made up for it by taking a nice nap when we got home!    Hey, the first day back is hard, ya know?

Tonight we took a trip to the grocery store to get a few things that will last us the next week and a half.  I planned out four meals that are pretty economical, and they don’t taste too bad either!  I’ll be sharing them throughout the week. I’m not always the best at economical grocery shopping (i.e. nut butters), but we are really trying to make some changes around here, so I’m going to be focusing a bit more on how to eat cheap and healthy!

First up for tomorrow will be a recipe I call Mexican Fiesta Pasta.  If you like Mexican food, you’ll love this!  It’s cheap, it’s easy, but it’s clean!  Here’s a teaser;)

Have a great night everyone – on to Tuesday!
