Just so you know, I totally dominated the supermarket today! I went in grabbed a basket and went to town on the produce section!
There was a woman behind me who’s cart looked like Haagan Daaz and Entammans were going out of style.
She was looking at my baskets (and yes, I carried 2 baskets – I was too lazy to get a cart, so I got in some farmers walks while shopping!) like what the hell does this guy eat!
So, I looked at her and answered her shocked expressions with these thoughts in my head –
“Yes, I eat alot of eggs.”
“Yes, I eat a lot of tuna.”
“Yes, I also eat a ton of vegetables.”
“Yes, I do like cookies.”
“No, I dont keep them in the house.”
“No, I dont eat them by the bag . . . anymore.” ; )
“No, this is not part of a New Years resolution.”
“Yes, I do shop like this ALL THE TIME!”
“Now turn around slowly, and PUT THE ICE CREAM BACK! Thank you.”
So here is a peek into my grocery bags – These are things I constantly buy and always have on hand, you know . . . to preserve my sexy!
Joey’s Shopping List:
- 2 Dozen Eggs – these will last a few days, I boil about 10 as soon as I get home and make an egg salad with a little salsa instead of mayo.
- Peppers – Red, yellow, and green, a couple of each. I wash and chop these right away also.
- Yellow Squash
- Bunch of Spinach
- 4 sweet potatos
- 4 cans of tuna
- 4 bags of tuna – (trying these for the taste test!)
- Black Beans
- Navy Beans
- Kidney Beans
- Garbanzo Beans
- Bag of Oranges
- Fresh spices – Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano
- Shredded Cheese
- Bag of Flaxseed
- Large Chobani Greek Yogurt
And thats it! I don’t consider my shopping over until I come home then wash and chop the veggies as soon as I get there. That way there is no excuse, its probably one of the best habits I developed in 2009.
Plus, hot girls in the supermarket want to hang with you when you shop better.
(Before you ask, yes, girls in my supermarket are figure models who always wear bikinis to shop for produce!)
Back to the story here – With the eggs, I boil about 10 of them, then peel and chop them up. Mix in some chopped veggies and a couple of tablespoons of salsa – and there is a quick breakfast for a couple of days!
As I have always said, if it is in your house, you will eat it. Keep the bad stuff out, and bring good foods in!
I mean after all – your body is pretty much MADE of veggies! –
