Sometimes it feels like weekends are an endless blur of errands, cleaning, meal planning and prepping. This weekend was a little bit different with it being Halloween. I got out of work early on Friday and that made it seem like my weekend was longer than it usually it. This Friday I’ll be heading to Chicago for a one day intensive seminar with my job. The last time I was in Chicago was February (to take boards) and it was freezing cold. I imagine it’ll be a little less cold this time around. Or maybe not given that parts of the U.S. got 20+ inches of snow over the weekend [!!!].
Back to errands…
There was a time in my life when I only ventured to Costco when we ran out of TP. Lately, it feels like I’m always at Costco. Only that’s not entirely true. It’s more like we go to Costco every other week to stock up on smoothie supplies. They have really great prices on Almond milk, organic greens and frozen fruit. I’m a girl who likes a good deal.
I know that Costco type stores can sometimes be viewed in a negative light (over consumption) but I really do feel okay about the items I choose to buy at Costco. For example, I found bread from one of my favorite bakeries (based out of Seattle) at Costco. How amazing is that? The Essential Baking Company is still a very small company, yet, I can buy their delicious, artisan organic bread at my local Costco, along with a reasonably price vat of Organic Coconut Oil. It’s hard to hate on that.
Here are a few of my favorites from this week:
This is my favorite frozen broccoli. It comes in 4 individual 1lb bags. It’s organic. And I’m weird and I can pretty much eat broccoli with every single meal. This is one of my go to veggies for dinner.
