Healthy Math

I just got back from the grocery store on this beautiful Saturday morning. Mike and I eat in 85% of the week, so my the time Saturday comes around, our supply is running low to say the least!

The Arvada Farmers Market started up for the season (YAY!) and knowing I’d be heading there, I refrained from buying a ton of greenery. Our farmers market has a local farm stand that allows you to fill a whole bag of veggie goodies, for $10!!!!!!! Like a kid on Christmas!

Hearty grocery Bill!

So, that being said, I went, I shopped (not buying my usual veggie stash) and walked out having spent a cool $144!

Holy cow!!!!! (And I don’t eat meat!)

Driving home though, I started doing the math….the whole trip spurred from us debating whether or not to go to Panera and just grab breakfast. Well, a healthy breakfast sandwich there, plus coffee, for two is about $18.

Here’s how my bill compares, just considering the breakfast items I used this morning:

Organic brown eggs (a dozen): $3.29

A bunch of organic kale: $.98

Organic tortillas: $1.99

Tofurkey Sausage: $4.49

Total: $10.75

And I only used 3 eggs, 2 pieces of kale, 1/3 of the sausage, and 2 tortillas. So we have enough for another 4-5 breakfasts!!!!! We also paired our meal with purple grapes & watermelon (around $6 for 2 watermelons and a bunch of grapes).

Healthy isn’t expensive, it just takes time. And it’s time well spent!

Happy Breakfast!

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
