Sunday Prep - Food Haul!

I'm happy to report that I am feeling much better today than a couple of days ago! Hooray!

The morning started with 20 body squats and five push-ups and then a 1.4 mile walk with Derek. This morning's walk was dedicated to the fight against Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). SMA is the number one genetic killer of young children. This past Saturday in New Market, Ontario, Canada was the annual Rebecca Run for Spinal Muscular Atrophy and in addition there was a virtual run/walk/job/lift/dance held on Facebook. Basically move for those who cannot. All the participants wore bright blue in memory of Emersyn, a baby who lost her life to SMA at seven months of age. Both the actual and virtual events were a success. I couldn't participate yesterday because I was still under the weather but I was excited to get outdoors this morning - it was the least I could do and I plan to do more.

Here's a pic of me in my Emersyn blue

Onto the rest of the day's activities. We headed out to the grocery store earlier than usual. I usually procrastinate so I was happy that we were done by 12:30! I love Trader Joe's but for fresh produce, our local Henry's is my go-to. 


And I loaded up for the week. At least I hope it lasts for a week!

Here are the goods.

I've got two heads of green leaf lettuce and one head of red leaf; two banana bunches; a box of spinach; a cucumber; some frozen fruit; a lot of avocado and mango; some fresh fruit (on sale!); onions; spaghetti squash; sweet potatoes; and raw cashews. I cannot wait to dig in!

Back to preppin'! What's your food plan look like this week?

Thank you for making me aware of SMA. Kudos to those who participated in whatever way they did on Saturday. It is wonderful when people take the time to raise awareness of these conditions.

I used to shop at Henry's when I lived in San Diego. I miss that place! Looks like a great food haul.

@Naturaleza - You're so right! Like I said, the walk was the least I could do and I will do more!

@Purple_Moonflower - Henry's is a great option esp when compared to Whole Foods!
