My SWAG from grocery shopping ....

Shopping has changed since I started Whole30.  I read the labels and it takes longer - good for me I get to be away from the house longer.

I got 3 Grass Fed Chuck Beef Roasts - they were on sale for $3.97/lb at Lowe's Foods!  What a bargain.

I made a beef stew with the first roast. I covered the roast with salt and pepper, threw it in my cast iron braiser that I sautéed a bag of Seasoning Blend, covered it with 2 cups of beef broth and put it in the oven. After an hour I added some gemstone potatoes, a cut up sweet potato and some butternut squash chunks. Baked @350 for another hour and Viola!

I got some great items at Aldi. 
 A cabbage, can of pumpkin, 2 kinds of guacamole, a cauliflower, sweet onions,
Strawberry Pineapple flavored sparkling water, eggs, baby carrots, whole pecans

 $2 off an organic chicken! It was tasty too.
I roasted it with Bicentennial Rub on the skin and I mixed a little ghee with
Mural of Flavor and shoved under the skin on the breast.
After an hour I added a sweet potato and a white potato.

 A great buy!

For lunches!

I went to Trader Joe's this morning. I haven't been there in so long.  Heck, I haven't been to Charlotte since before I broke my ankle in May 2017. I got Mixed Nut Butter, Heirloom Tomatoes, 2 kinds of Chicken Sausage, Almonds, Dates, Winter Sangria Sparkling Water, Tahini, Fire roasted tomatoes, Colorful Carrot Coins, Salsa Verde (love it on salads), a spaghetti squash, Spindrift water, cashews,  seafood mix and langoustines. YUM!!
