Whole30 Day 9: Grocery Shopping

My Whole30 Day 9 Journey

Whole30 day 9 was a very productive day that started out with a trip to a new grocery store that had a ton of fresh, clean and organic foods. One of the things I am liking about this challenge is that I am also challenging myself to try new foods and flavor combos. The picture below is what I purchased at the first grocery store and then I made a trip to my regular grocery store because this place was super cool but super expensive.

Today I found some fermented purple cabbage and beets that I am nervous and excited to try. I also found 2 new salad dressings to try because I am obsessed with finding the perfect salad dressing. I am going to make a brussel sprout & kale salad tomorrow and the “living” lettuce is going to make the perfect “taco shells or wraps”.

My Whole30 Fitness {Fitbit Steps}

I did a lot of walking earlier in the day and hit 6,700 steps today. I thought I would hit 10,000 but I was super motivated to cook in the kitchen all afternoon and never left for a walk around the neighborhood. Had I set the alarm on my phone it would have reminded me to get out and walk. {Note to self: set the alarm.}

My Whole30 Feelings {eager to cook}

So today my girls told me they are tired of fruits and veggies and have done some cheating this week. I am not surprised because they aren’t eating a variety of foods during the day like I am. They don’t prepare and pack their lunches the night before and they just grab fruit for breakfast as they run out the door.  I told them that I will help them be more prepared and that I don’t expect them to stick to this 100%. My hopes are that they learn about nutrition and carry some of these habits with them later. I also told them that I wasn’t forcing them to do this and if they wanted to stop at any time I would be ok with that choice. They decided they wanted to continue with a slightly modified plan that include an occasional treat. I’m very proud of them.
