Navigating the Fridge

by Courtney on July 22, 2010

Happy Thursday! :-D

Last Night’s Recap

Good news: We won our softball game last night. :mrgreen:

Bad news: I came home, ate leftovers for dinner, and again went to bed feeling BLAH. Grrrrr…darn you stomach! :mad:

We didn’t end up grilling after the game, so after hanging out for a bit, I came home and had some leftover Cheesy Chicken & Rice casserole. I was so hungry by the time I ate, I think that that may have been part of the culprit.

Sorry, this house has terrible lighting when there’s no natural light available!



Usually I have an idea of what I want for breakfast by the time I wake up in the morning, but today was a tough decision! Should I skip dairy? Should I not eat gluten? Should I not care?

After navigating through the good ‘ol refrigerator, I saw the bag of fresh spinach I picked up the other day at the grocery store. Ahhhh, decision made. Any guesses?? ;)


Strawberry Banana Green Monster :)

-1 frozen banana, sliced

-1 large handful frozen strawberries

-1/2 cup vanilla almond milk

-1/2 scoop strawberry Whey protein powder

-2 big ‘ol handfuls spinach

-2 ice cubes



It was so creamy and delicious! I don’t know why I don’t think to make these more often??

Later this morning, I have to run a couple errands, including a trip to Target. There are 5 things on my Target list…want to make any bets that I’ll be coming home with more than 5 things? ;)

Question for the Morning:

What store can you never leave without spending more than you anticipated?

omg, I swear I can’t leave Target without spending $100. That place is dangerous!!


4 Holly at Greek Yogurt and Apple Slices July 22, 2010 at 10:14 am

Definitely Target. Whenever I go there I end up getting @ least 5 things I never intended to get. My poor wallet is NOT a fan of the store..but I sure am :D

I always take a list to Target. And leave with an extra bag or two of stuff not on it…

I can’t figure it out! There must be something in the air there… or the lighting… because I walk in and want EVERYTHING!!!

If I had five things on my Target list, I’d come home with 10. Better off not even making a list! Your smoothie sounds wonderful!


7 Jen July 22, 2010 at 10:49 am

Target for sure!! I will take one of those hand basket things instead of a cart so I can’t buy too much stuff lol


8 Autumn @ Good Eats Girl July 22, 2010 at 10:54 am

Good luck with the Target run….I always end up with more than I went for! I love it!

10 Kara @ MyWellnest July 22, 2010 at 11:25 am

11 dorrybird July 22, 2010 at 12:25 pm

Target for sure (I think it’s universal!),Whole Foods and Nordstrom! Hope your stomach issues go away. :)

When do we ever go to the store and come back with only what’s on the list? The only time I do that is when my husband is waiting and he pushes me. Even then I might nab a Reeses’ on my way out. :)


13 Courtney July 22, 2010 at 1:42 pm

Haha, SO TRUE about the husband comment! :)

I hate that about your stomach! I was having horrible stomach issues (felt like I couldn’t suck in/bloating) – and to be honest, I think most of it was stress-related. Hopefully you’ll be able to figure out the culprit. I hate having tummy issues.

And I absolutely do not trust myself in Target or Trader Joes. :)


15 tanyasdaily July 22, 2010 at 2:20 pm

trader joes


16 erica July 22, 2010 at 2:55 pm

sephora, costco, and whole foods!


17 Amy July 22, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Sephora or Buckle. I’m in big trouble in either of these or even Mac cosmetics.

Kimberly Snyder does a very interesting blog post about dairy. You should definitely check it out :)

Does Jack’s count as a store?
