Anyhow, we're definitely looking forward to tomorrow. How does this connect to my journey? Well....I've realized that eating differently can cost a little more so I'm looking forward to stocking up some healthy meals and snacks.
Speaking of snacks...I took the advice of several of you and purchased some almonds. Much better snack than some of my other snacks. They are Blue Diamond habanero bbq. They're much better than I anticipated. One serving is about 28 almonds at 170 calories. About the same calories as the Nature Valley Sweet/Salty bar, only the almonds have much more nutritional value.
My friend Jamie, who I mentioned the other day, let me know about the protein shake she uses. It's called Pure Protein and you can get it from Vitamin Shoppe. I imagine you could get it from GNC and other places as well, but at Vitamin Shoppe you can get a 12 pack of shakes for $27. About $2.25/shake. That's a little more than you might spend on another snack, but definitely more healthy. They have several flavors (Vanilla, Strawberry, Strawberry-Banana, and Cookies 'n Cream). I'll definitely be buying some of these.
Between almonds and protein shakes, I think this is like the next level of this journey.
Looking very forward to the weekend!
