We ran out of natural sweeteners last week, so I have been using Splenda when I need to sweeten something. (My dad cannot eat natural sweeteners, but Splenda is okay, so I purchased a bag in December with which to make Christmas goodies. I think I might keep it on hand from now on.)
I went to the store on Wednesday, and purchased produce; bread; milk, eggs and cheese; turkey hot dogs; and frozen veggies. The only organics I purchased were carrots, bananas and romaine lettuce, since the prices of those items are so close to conventional. I spent just under $50.
I did not purchase peanut butter because this month I wanted us to eat out of our pantry as much as possible, but after one day I am already
And I just want to ask for prayer for Mr. Honey-- he decided to give up smokeless tobacco cold-turkey, and is being a soldier through it, but it is hard. He is almost to the one-week mark. Go, Mr. Honey!
