End of Week Thoughts
1. ***When I was grocery shopping this week I was having severe “f**k it”moments and bought these chips.  They’re made with canola, sunflower, and/or safflower oil.  I know that those aren’t TED approved, but I didn’t care.  There’s a small amount of those oils in the rice milk I’ve been using because I can’t find rice milk without the oils in them. I was frustrated and just beyond caring.  Should I have care? Yes.  Did I though? No. Will I regret it? Maybe.
2. I’ve determined I really don’t like the ground turkey meals.  It’s not bad if you put it in like the Turkey & Rice Bake or the Turkey Spaghetti Casserole, but other than that I really don’t care for it.  Which is a shame, because it is SOOOOO much cheaper than the tenderloins.
3. I had a few sparkling waters during the week too, but I can’t remember when so I didn’t write them down.  I was craving soda something fierce, so the sparkling water helped curb the crave a bit.
3. Tip: I found this picture and thought it was genius.  I’ve been cutting the pears like apples to get the seeds out which wastes a lot of pear.  By using a measuring spoon, you can scoop out just the seeds and save so much more pear that way.  Who knew?
4. I’ve decided I really like the Turkey Nuggets.  They’re my go-to meal because it’s quick and easy.  Highly recommend.
