Simple Nutrition-Give It A Try

Leave a comment

Living a healthy lifestyle through exercise and diet are very important to me, so when I was asked to give Simple Nutrition, a new online personal nutrition tool for Safeway, Tom Thumb and Randalls grocery chain a try, I was thrilled. The program is developed by registered dietitians to help make it easy to shop for products that fit your nutritional needs.

It is so easy, you simply sign-up, sign-in and tell it what you need or want and the tool gives you food choices based on your criteria. You make your choices, create your list, and then go shopping.

Armed with my list, I was ready to shop!   First stop was fresh veggies and fruits, my favorite place in the store.

Veggies

Fruits

Pineapple

I love this stuff.

Naked

I can’t drink regular milk, so non-dairy almond is my choice.

Milk

Love myself some greek yogurt.

Oikos Yogurt

I’m trying to reduce the sugar in my diet and this cereal has less of it.

Cascadian Farms

I put some of those fresh veggies together to make these awesome dishes. I roasted the veggies in the oven once, but used them twice in two different recipes. Dish one was roasted veggies served on top of creamy polenta with chopped kale, dish two, an open-faced sandwich served with romaine and spinach salad.

Cook Once, Use Twice

My overall thoughts about this program is that it’s a great tool to help anyone meet their nutritional goals, and that ‘s a Marvelous thing.

There’s nothing like running in the cool crisp morning air and this week has been the best running weather, the mornings have been in the sixties. I am loving it! Before my run I had a banana, so I wouldn’t have a repeat of my weekend run when I hit that big wall.

Breakfast

After my run I downed a chocolate protein smoothie before showering and dressing for work.

Lunch

 I packed a lunch, but decided to have a veggie wrap from the local Tom Thumb grocery near my work instead. So, so good!

Afternoon Snack

Mid afternoon I was ready for an open faced sunflower seed butter and banana sandwich on wheat. It gave me what I needed to get thru the rest of my day.

Dinner

Dinner was a very quick butternut squash ravioli and a glass of wine.

Great day of meals.
