My 68 Day Challenge; The Whole30 Shopping

Today was an adventure.   Reading up on the Whole30 I wasn't intimidated or discouraged at all about the plan.  We eat pretty healthy now.  Everyone in my family can cook and, except for mushrooms, we are pretty daring when it comes to food. The only piece that seemed to be a challenge is where to find the ingredients? There are no fancy grocery stores or health markets to find organic farm raised meats around here.  Today we went searching for one.  Since when is shopping not fun?

Stop 1, a large health food market.  It looked promising from the outside.
Inside not so much.  The produce was ok, but the meat choices were pretty much chuck roast, chicken and ground beef.  That won't do it for 30 days.  Moving on.

Stop 2, Whole Foods.  Here we hit pay day.  The meat counter pretty much had all of the cuts an ordinary meat counter would have and it had this awesome rating and tagging system to figure everything out.


We were lucky.  We only had to go to two stores to find an easy and reliable store.  You may have to go to more but, don't settle.  Don't go for less.  Keep at it until you get exactly what you want.  Wait for the best.
