Friend Makin’ Mondays: Groceries

If you have taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s questions on your own blog then add your link in the comments section at: so others can see your FMM questions and answers. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers by posting your own FMM post and commenting on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!


FMM: In the Kitchen

1. How often do you cook at home? I cook almost every meal every day at home. This wasn’t always the case though. I always hated cooking. After having my son I embarked on a quest to learn how to eat healthy. My husband bought us a laptop and I discovered healthy living blogs chock full of delicious easy recipes. With my laptop on the kitchen counter suddenly a whole new world opened to me. I love to cook now and prefer eating home over eating out most of the time. Every now and then I enjoy going out especially for ethnic food.

2. Do you eat more fresh produce, frozen or canned produce? We go through so much fresh produce a week I really should have a garden.

3. What are a few unusual staples that can always be found in your kitchen?  Banana peppers, nutritional yeast, chick peas and dates.

4. Look in your fridge, then tell us about the healthiest thing in there. A ginormous Costco bag of spinach

5. Now share the most unhealthy thing in it.  I think it’s a tie between turkey dogs and sugar free Jello. My husband and son eat the turkey dogs and Carlos grabbed the Jello by accident as a snack for camp this week. I didn’t look at it carefully when he threw it in the cart. I would have bought the regular Jello. I don’t like him to have the artificial sugar. It will probably make it’s way to work where someone will eat it.

6. Do you eat leftovers? Yes.

7. Do you use coupons at the supermarket?  I try to use coupons, but often times I forget them. I dislike the coupons that offer money off if you buy more than one of a product. I don’t always want more than one because it might spoil or I’m not sure if we will use it all.

8. How often do you try new recipes? At least once a week thanks to all the terrific recipes I find on blogs.

9. Do you make grocery lists?  Do you stick to them? If I make a list I usually stick to it. I don’t always make lists despite my never ending attempt to get organized, be more efficient and save money.

10. If you could buy one food item that would magically be calorie-free, which item would you choose? Peanut butter

  1. Mmm, banana peppers…I usually always have those in my fridge as well. I really dislike coupons for more than one item too, I never need two and it never seems worth it at that point.

  2. I always get the huge Coscto bag of spinach too 🙂 I usually have to freeze some so it doesn’t go bad! That’s cool about how you started eating and cooking healthy food .. I was kind of the same way. When I started losing weight, I looked to blogs for inspiration, and never looked back 🙂

  3. Yep, banana peppers are usually in my shopping cart too! I don’t use coupons all too much because I don’t buy much processed food – although my grocery coupon next week is going to be amazeballs – get $1 back for every $10 you spend – so I’ll probably get $8 bucks off my bill next week! 😀

  4. Hi Aimee! I love leftovers. Chick peas have been in many salads lately. I only like coupons that save at least 75 cents, but recently got a $50 coupon off $100 purchase at a department store that was great.

    🙂 Marion
