Heh. Made ya click.
I admit it. Every week giggle at the "BJ requests?" text David sends before heading out to our favorite warehouse store. Why would I go to Costco when I can be a BJ club member? *giggle*
Since I like to keep the dirty for the mind and out of the pantry, I like to stock up on clean eats. And if it's cheap, even better.
So for my inaugural "Three Things Thursday" I bring you my Cleaner BJ's List:
1. Greek yogurt.
I love me some greek yogurt. Nothing packs the protein (14g! and 0 fat!) in for the morning than my 6 oz of Chobani! Add a little ho-made granola and you have yourself an awesome start to the day. Love this stuff. Hate the price. Usually it retails for about $1.39, but I won't buy it from the store unless it is a buck each. Because....BJs sells a peach/blueberry/strawberry 12 pack for $11.99. Now if they would only start carrying 12 packs of honey....
2. Salad. Salad. Salad.
I eat at least one, usually two salads a day. If it isn't from the garden or the CSA, then it is definitely Olivia's. A big tub of Olivia's Organic salad makes up about 8-10 containers for me. I add in a hand full of cherry tomatoes, a few craisins and pre-measured itty-bitty glad container of dressing and I have stacks of salad-to-go for lunch and dinner. The night of a BJs run, there is a little salad assembly line going on in my kitchen. Quick and easy. I like easy. I think these are about $5.99/1lb box. (have to double check with the shopper....) So worth it.
And lastly, I NEED coffee. Cleaned up coffee is pretty easy. Look for fair trade organic. We take turns buying this big 'ol 2.5 lbs bag of coffee for the office. I like the taste of the Earth's Pride Organic Sumatra. Usually I get sick of the same kind of coffee over and over, but after going through 5 bags over the last 6 months or so, we still like it.
If these BJ tips don't put a smile on your face,
then get me something stronger than coffee and I'll dish then, go google Camille Crimson, (NSFW!) and she'll give you her own. Um....not that I would know anything about that.
