How to get great deals on great food – Green Polka Dot Box

As I’ve helped people transition to a Real Food lifestyle, one question that I get asked over and over is about where I shop. How do I find these elusive Real Foods, and how can I afford them when I find them? How can I find great deals on great food, without spending hours and hours? I can tell you it hasn’t been easy, especially not at first. Our normal weekly grocery shopping had us going to three or four different stores, along with a stop on the weekend to pick up our co-op basket, or to run to a farmer’s market or other fruit/vegetable stand nearby. We now have our new preferred products that we know contain the ingredients we want, but we have spent a lot of time standing in grocery store aisles reading labels. Grocery shopping is not a chore that I have ever enjoyed, and the change in our lifestyle certainly didn’t make it any easier.

Have I got you depressed yet? Never fear, I have a solution for you!

Facing your fears

Get cozy, it’s story time! And I’m about to reveal something very embarrassing.

For as long as I can remember, water has made me… uncomfortable. As a kid, I was very happy to bob around in the swimming pool, one hand always tightly gripping the side, and only staying in the parts of the pool where I could touch the bottom. I always said that I loved swimming, but I don’t know if you could actually call it swimming. It was more just standing in some water, and maybe walking around from side to side a bit. I also would NEVER put my face in the water. Yikes! No, thanks!

Eventually, when I was somewhere around

Workout Songs I’m Digging Right Now

Is it just me, or are there suddenly a bunch of really fun songs coming out? The right music can really help you have a great workout, and lately these songs have been showing up a lot in my playlist.

First up, It’s All About That Base by Meghan Trainor. The first time I saw this video I thought it was a snarky joke, but then about a minute in I decided that I didn’t care if it was a joke or not, it was fun! I also love the message. Yes, of course I absolutely believe we should

Oh, summer. Summer! Does anyone else feel like they need to just stop for a moment and breathe? This summer has been absolutely amazing, full of the important things like Hawaiian sunrises, yoga in the car, graduations, swimming lessons, princesses, just chillin’, lots of reasons to put on swimsuits, vacations, loads and loads of family, and buckets of fun.
