Eating What I Have

Last night, I took an inventory of my pantry, fridge and freezer. 

The positive: I will not starve any time soon, and the food I have is largely pretty healthy (meaning - there's nothing boxed, there are only 3 cans and 1 bag of pre-cooked chicken breasts, and there's nothing like cookies or candy laying around.  It's all whole grains, nuts, veggies, fruit and beans. Hooray for healthy.

On the other hand...I'm a little embarrassed by the evidence of waste and money leakage.  

I eat out A LOT.  

I tend to eat fairly healthy food at established, healthy restaurants, and when I eat out, I'm also feeding my heart by socializing with well-loved beings.  


I spend too much money.


I tend to go to the grocery store over and over again and end up with 2 or 3 of the same item because I don't know what I have because I don't cook at home.  My pantry has been like a cabinet of curiosities in an old, abandoned home.  No more!

I am committed to looking in and taking note of what foodstuffs live there.  I am committed to using said foodstuffs.  Dare I say, I am even excited about this prospect!

On the recipe card for today:
Chicken soup with Navy Beans, Wheat berries and a variety of veggies.
