No Groceries!

Thursday, November 13, 2014

One of the challenges this week. for my Azure team on BLC26, is to do one thing out of my healthy comfort zone this week. I heard on TV last week someone talking about how much food is wasted. I am major contributor to this waste.

I buy way too much food, not just fresh food. My freezer is always crammed full and my pantry is the same. I am challenging myself for this week to live on what I have in the house right now and to buy no groceries before next Thursday. I did not pre-plan this so it will be interesting to see if I can meet this challenge. Don't worry I certainly wont starve and all my nutritional requirements will be met.

As I have today just started on South Beach Phase 1 that will add to my challenge. I know as I get to the end of the week it will become harder but I am excited to see if I can do this. I am blessed and usually I can have whatever I want to eat - there are many people who never have that choice. My grocery money that I save I will be giving to the Food Bank.

I will blog next week to let you know how I did.

    Good luck! I love the idea of working on not wasting food... we end up wasting more than I care to, usually because things do Not Go As Planned. I hate wasting food though so once things get more settled maybe I will see if I can devise a plan that Wastes Less Food.

    Good luck! It sounds like a do-able challenge and rewarding too. I hope you make it through the week with no grocery runs. It may lead to some creative meals and maybe some new favorite dishes.

    Have fun!

    What a great idea, I have done that on occasion , we do buy way too much food, and I too waste from time to time..My DH is addicted to grocery shopping, I don't like to stock pile, but alas he does, I prefer fresh! Good luck to you, I can't join you as I have to stock up on veggies for the SB diet, I'm all out!

    Good luck. That is generous of you to donate your savings to the Food Bank, and very timely with The holidays coming up. I wish I could join you but I need ingredients to make it through the week on South Beach.

    I am with you. We buy more food that goes in the trash. So I too try to only buy what I need for the day.
