the whole deal



I have been trying to get back to our Rhythm here again at Green Acres.  It seems that we go along just fine and then “boom” I can derail so fast.  I know that the last 3 weeks have been crazy getting ready for the celebration and the last tee ball games but it is time to get this train back on track.

I was making our menu this morning and realizing that in our derailment I had been pretty lax in what I was feeding our family again.  I am not going to throw these items away but once the processed is gone it is gone!  It is so easy to buy the packaged junk but am I really saving money?  Isn’t it more realistic to think of healthy snacks instead of reaching for ease.  What am I doing to my body let alone my kids and Mr. Miller? 

I went to the  Whole Foods website this morning to look for ideas and they now have their Whole Deal available for printing off at home!  Great ideas and over $45 in coupons.  I know where I am going tonight.  With the garden in full swing and my once a month meat delivery I might be able to do this venture in a reasonable manor with a list and the coupons.  Wish me luck!


  1. I wish (WISH) I had a Whole Foods in my backyard. We have the worst grocery store in our town -- nothing's fresh or local. I have to drive to the next town over to get decent food, otherwise it would be all processed food here too. Yuck.

  2. Good luck on the shopping! We don't have a Whole Foods here but I love our local natural foods store. I almost can't go there unattended!
