IT’S HUMP DAY!
I love only working one day and already getting to the middle of the week. It feels like cheating in a way, but I’ll take it!
Guys, Wal-Mart never ceases to amaze me. I keep thinking every week that I will have to stop doing this segment because I will run out of healthy options to discover. Nonetheless, I continue to uncover plenty of treats to keep my health goals and taste buds equally amused.
I love knowing that I can keep to my budget every week, too. Of course, there are weeks when I stock up on things like meat and pantry staples while in Dallas at Trader Joe’s or Sprout’s. Those weeks, the grocery budget gets tipped a little past the comfort zone. But I’m usually able to make up for it in the coming weeks since I often can use meat I already have frozen and am just buying fresh fruits and veggies.
With that said, here's my round-up of goodies for y'all this week! Enjoy and be well!
