Ugh, Grocery stores drive me crazy!!!!!👿👿👿. I have a huge soft spot in my heart for nutritional food for everyone, especially growing kids!!🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱
That means no crap and fillers to make food taste better. NO ADDED Sugar!!!! Nothing artificial Like fake flavors or high fructose corn syrup to sweeten and prolong shelf life. Not for our babies please!!!
Here's an example of The applesauce at my Stop & Shop. Our gov't WIC (women's, infant, children) program offers a payment card for mom's to buy food for their family. There are stickers on the food that is eligible for that program. They use their card to pay for their groceries.
So which applesauce do you think is paid for with the program?????? Yep, the cruddy one with sh*t in it. The one with SUGAR in it!! There's high fructose corn syrup even in Motts applesauce and that one isn't covered. However, The yummy Musselmen one is unsweetened and is just apples, water and vitamin C. But it's on the bottom shelf, is more expensive and the WIC eligible indicator is microscopic! 👹👹👹 which one is a busy mom MORE likely to grab!??!
I've often thought about trying to create a program to teach mom's less fortunate than myself how to read labels. But I'm starting to think everyone might need this info!! I'm all fired up and don't know what to do with it🔥🔥🔥🔥
I was so inspired by a pic on instagram the other day. A sheet pan of roasted veggies. Simple. Clean. Pretty. AND....you can eat it off the sheet and have one dish to clean. I hate doing dishes. Ugh, they pile up in the sink and haunt me.
I had to try it so I opened the fridge. We had an almost past it's prime rubbery cauliflower, a bag of Brussels sprouts, carrots and kale. Done. I sliced them all up and tossed them onto a parchment paper covered sheet pan. Well, all except the kale cause it won't take as long to cook.
After adding a couple of blobs of coconut oil I stirred it all and popped the pan into a hot 350 deg oven. After folding some laundry and helping the kids with homework(45 min) it smelled so good. I tossed the kale into the mix and kept roasting another 5 minutes. DONE! The kale just gets crispy enough to offer a crunch next to the semi soft veg. And to top it I used my favorite lemon kuzu sauce from Trader Joe's, a drizzle of hemp or olive oil plus a few shakes of gomasio. For a pop of color and sweet little balance I tossed in pomegranate jewels. They are starting to get really sweet about this time of year!! It was so good we devoured it. And simply so easy. Give it a try!!
