Moving back to Michigan meant saying goodbye to some pretty amazing grocery stores, and hello again to my midwest stand by. But just because I can’t grind my own peanut butter here doesn’t mean I have no options. Here are some of my old and new favorites:
Where can’t you buy these? Green beans are my favorite.
Quick dinner idea: whole-wheat spaghetti noodles, topped with tomato sauce, with a side of green beans.
Food Should Taste Good®: Multigrain Tortilla Chips
A serving size is about 10 chips, and they are yummy, so no eating straight from the bag! They are low in sodium (80mg/serving) and have a lovely nutty flavor.
Quick lunch idea: Place 10 chips on a microwave safe plate, top with a huge handful of spinach, a few halved cherry tomatoes, low sodium deli meat or beans, and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese. Add an orange on the side for dessert.
Mini Babybel® Cheese
These are a new product for me. Bonus points – they were buy-one get-one free this week! So far I’ve tried the White Cheddar and it’s delicious. Try it paired with an apple for a filling mid-afternoon snack.
Old Fashioned Oatmeal
Thank goodness you can buy oatmeal just about anywhere, because it’s a staple around here! Coming Soon: a long overdue, “tribute to oatmeal” post.
That’s all for now. I’m sure there will be more fun food finds as I explore the stores!
