To blow off a little steam last night I decided to go grocery shopping by myself. Usually this wouldn't ellicit a post but what I bought has me laughing this morning.
First I tossed a box of Crunch n' Munch in the cart. I followed it up with strawberries.
Then came brownies with a side of ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream which was balanced with a cantaloupe.
Chili dog fixins'? I made up for that dinner choice with Chicken Soft taco ingredients.
Chips and queso dip was offset with fat free yogurt.
Frozen waffles and french toast sticks were joined by whole grain bagels and lite cream cheese.
Are you sensing a pattern here? For every item of junk food I managed to throw in the cart I somehow had to find my inner "Good Mommy" and assure something healthy joined it.
I was subconciously justifying the crap purchases. hee
I don't buy unhealthy food as a rule. Sure, we splurge once in a while - but not to the extent I shopped last night. It comes from the way I was raised. I didn't grow up with snack foods and neither are my kids - it just isn't brought into the house. I honestly think fresh fruit, veggies and from scratch cooking tastes better anyway. I would like to think the kids do too.
I am just glad I by passed the cereal aisle.
