Yeah...this week was not good. Not only did I go to the store starving to death, but this grocery store visit was about a week too late. As in, I didn't go to the grocery store the week before, like normal, so we had to scavenge in the pantry all week for random crap to eat for meals and snacks. I was too busy to go to the store the week before, and we technically had stuff to eat...it just wasn't good stuff. So, I kind of went crazy when I finally did make it to the grocery store.
As I mentioned before, I am a dessert fiend. After dinner I HAVE to have something sweet. Though, since we've been trying to eat better, I've been trying to make do with a hardboiled egg or some yogurt in place of my regular chocolate-laden dessert. (The glorious cookies shown above were inhaled rather quickly...)
The purchases made during this week's impulse buys were satisfactory.
The Dill Triscuits are a new household favorite. They are quite tasty.
The veggi-bacon tasted like veggie bacon. I don't recommend burning it. I think we'll stick to turkey bacon, though...
The Chobani greek yogurt tasted like greek yogurt. It's a little too sour for me, I prefer my yogurt smothered in fruit or cookie bits. :)
On the rare occasion that we eat pasta, we usually eat whole grain simply because it is healthier. Whole grain linguini + 1 can of Progresso Red Clam Sauce + sprinkling of shredded parmesan cheese = instant, cheap dinner!
No need to comment on taste of the cookies. They literally made my day better. I would rape an Oreo (well, not a reduced fat Oreo, only a regular Oreo) if it were possible and if for some reason the Oreo wouldn't have me and if I knew I wouldn't go to jail.
Also, never buy cookies when they aren't on sale. If you've ever tried buying a full pack of Oreo's at a gas station, you'll know what I mean. $5.99 at the gas station vs. $2.50 at the grocery store.
Even though this visit to the grocery store had a pile of impulse buys, they were all on sale! And some were healthy...
