I was just planning on picking up some produce after work Tuesday night to get us through until I could finish the match-ups and figure out what we really needed. It is amazing how not cooking and being out of town for a week can allow you to forget what you have or need in your pantry. I ended up with some really good deals and some more freebies thanks to the MARTIN’S coupon booklet that I mentioned in this post.
Here is the picture of my purchases:

You may have noticed that I picked up a few things that I don’t usually buy. I found out right before I left for my trip that I am borderline for gestational diabetes. My doctor suggested that I follow the diet and recommendations from the American Diabetes Association and picked up the cheese sticks and whole grain bread to have some easy snacks available and bread for lunch. The ice cream is a calorie and carb splurge – I will have to make sure I go for a walk right after enjoying that. :)
