Who did some stress eating last week? So much nail biting anxiety with the election craze! It’s now time to take a breath and push the reset button to get back to as “normal” as we can in this weird 2020 year. This post is about food! My friend, Janiece, has become a regular on my blog with her food/home wisdom. Take screenshots of our favorite grocery store products to pick up next time you’re out!
Jump to the list below, if you want us to get to the point.
True fact. I am an equal opportunity eater. I will eat almost anything. I like healthy, I like junk, I like veggies, I like Vegan, GF and Non-dairy items, I like all types of meat protein, I like cheese, I like one pot meals (especially, dishes from the 70’s) and I like (ok, love) carbs.
Sometimes, I find myself walking up and down the aisles at the market and I just “can’t find anything”. I’m not the type of person who can just create deliciousness out of things in the pantry. I am also not the type of person that makes new and exciting meals each week. I can get into a rut and lately I’ve been in a Covid rut….can you relate? The mundane routine of Covid has given me a mental food block.
I love running into friends while doing my grocery shopping. I can peek into their carts and become inspired by what I see! It could be the Nan bread, a bottle of wine, fresh meat from the butcher’s counter, a bottle of spices, or a random frozen package. Over the last 8 months, I have discovered some new items and I’ve also picked up some weekend drinking habits to apply on any random Tuesday! OY!!
Jen and I are in the same book club (we really do read the book!) and the question came up on a text thread recently, “What are your favorite Covid market finds?” It was fun to see what our friends love to buy or what they’ve discovered since Covid.
Here is a list of the top picks….Some healthy and some, healthy-ish – but all yummy!!
I hope you find something new to try and please be warned…..Covid cravings and Covid 15 are real…eat and drink wisely but, always enjoy!
Let us know what you think and share what your favorite Covid finds are with us!
Until next week…Janiece xx
**Note** If I have not listed were you can purchase the item, you will be able to find at your local market.
