I went grocery shopping for the week today and as I was standing in line, I had a moment to pause and reflect on what I was buying. The mother in front of me had a cart piled high with snacks, instant meals, soda, ready-to-bake chicken, and a lone bag of salad. I was her – minus the soda – just a few weeks ago.
I wish I had taken a picture of the things in my cart, because it really didn’t seem like enough to feed a family of five for more than a few hours. But it will. And our meals this week will be delicious and healthy. That’s exciting and, for the first time, I feel like we might just win this battle against processed foods after all.
