A New Lifestyle A New Way of Eating

I’ve been on a health kick since the beginning of 2018, I want to shed all the extra weight.

I am eating super healthy (at least I think so) and not spending a lot of money.  Mostly I am eating a lot of fruit, vegetables, grains, beans and lentils.  Call it whole foods plant based with a bit of fish, eggs and meat (no dairy, no caffeine, and very little bread).

This was my latest find at Grocery Outlet, Autumn Lentil Blend, bargain at $2.99 for the entire bag, 2 pound bag.  I expect this will make a lot of soup this winter.

Lentil Blend for soup
Autumn Lentil Blend – This will make a lot of healthy soup this fall.

One can eat super healthy, inexpensively and lose weight too.

Bodacious Living for sure!
