Chris and I lost about five pounds each while we were in Seattle. All that walking we did probably had something to do with it, but it also helped that we were eating way healthier foods while we were there. We ate lots more organic whole foods then processed stuff while on this trip (it was soooo easy to do). I’ve been trying to keep with the whole foods diet since we’ve been back, but it sure isn’t easy especially since I have to go to at least three different grocery stores to get decent stuff. One thing that has been easy to get a hold of is organic milk. I used to love to drink a big glass of cold milk, but over the years it got to where 2% would make me sick. So I switched to 1% and then to fat-free skim. Drinking fat-free skim was pretty much like drinking water and it tended to sit in the fridge. We hardly ever finished a half gallon of milk before it would go bad. So I broke down and bought a half gallon of fat free organic milk a few weeks ago and I love it.
The organic milk has made drinking milk fun and tasty again. Yes, it’s pricey, but worth every penny. For one thing its shelf life is way longer then the other stuff. It’s freaky. I bought a half gallon jug of milk on Sunday with an expiration date of November 26th. The one behind it had December 3rd for an expiration date. It scared me so I went with the Nov. 26th one. The old stuff would start to smell off and look swirly after day four or five. As a general rule, I would never drink the last of the milk from the non-organic stuff. But the organic milk tastes great a week after I’ve open it. It’s weird, but amazing. We actually finish cartons of milk now.
Now if we could only get one of the grocery stores to sell those yummy primeval bars (we got them from Trader Joe’s), I think I’d be almost content.
