Eating healthy

I thought I was a healthy eater but guess not. I ran into a friend at Publix the other day. I found it interesting that I always see her at the same area in Publix. I run into her often and she’s always at the produce section. She told me because that’s the only area she shops in, the produce area, she doesn’t buy any prepared food, which I do. She took one look at my shopping cart and threw a fit. I had things that I thought were healthy, like a frozen dinner that was chicken and broccoli, but she told me it had too much sodium, it did – 1050 milligrams (mg) ! I don’t buy canned soup because it has 750 mg of sodium, and this “healthy meal” had over 1000 mg!

I ended up putting so much of the food I had in the cart back and after a tour around the produce section with my friend, I ended up with Kiwi, watermelon, watercress, spinach, tuna, lemons, strawberries, peppers, apples (which I hate) you know, everything green and red, nothing with sugar or salt and I felt so much better for it. I do honestly try to eat vegetarian if I can but I guess I was lax in reading all of the labels. People in the store were laughing as they watched us go around. I felt so foolish because I really do think I’m eating healthy and I guess I eat healthier than most people, but I had a lot to learn.

I almost ended up with another friend for breakfast that morning at a place we call the Dirty Deli, which serves all greasy diner food. Glad I didn’t go that day.

But I did end up at a festival in town later in the day and I cheated. I had a cheeseburger and then as I was walking down the street I saw these great doughnuts by The Salty Donut which is this great place in Miami. They had a promotion going on – $1.00 per doughnut, which is quite cheap for them. So I had one, as you can see here.

I’ll get back on the wagon tomorrow, I have all that green and red produce I bought, so I’ll eat it, which I do love. Doughnuts and burgers in moderation.
