Welcome to my first blog post here. I’m excited to share my world with you all and thank you for stopping over.
So, for those of you who have no clue what the heck I’m doing, let me tell you! I am hoping to help those who are battling invisible illnesses and maybe just got a new diagnosis. I am also hoping to help those who are venturing into a life of plant based eating. When I got diagnosed with lupus, I pretty quickly transitioned to being a vegetarian. It wasn’t until I moved to Mexico in August 2018 that I made the full move to plant based. I also want people to see the things I do to help combat anxiety and depression, so in 2019, I started teaching myself to sew.
This blog is my life, I am a multi-faceted person but the goal is always to be of service. Anyway, I’m sure you came here looking for my food haul. It’s all fruits and veggies (obviously, since I’m plant based) but I wanted to share the difference in the prices of what you get in the US.
I will say this, I was a bit paranoid about buying certain things in the US. I tend to shop with local farmers here and I also don’t buy anything that doesn’t attract bugs. If they won’t eat it, there’s something wrong with it. You can even see some gnats in the larger grocery stores here (I never saw that back home).
I got a lot for my dollar and what I did was to chop up a lot of this, put it in storage bags for meals that will last beyond the expiration date (which happens fast in truly fresh foods).
I added a few photos and a quick video of what my portion sizes looked like. I had enough fruit for 3 smoothies (I’d already eaten quite a bit of it before I bagged it up) and I had plenty of veggies to use in soups and stir fry dishes.
