Distracted Shopping…


Oatmeal…I eat oatmeal…almost every morning…I’ve started buying the mega container…seems like the sensible…and cost effective…thing to do…so on a recent trip to the store…I reached out…took a container…from same the shelf I always do…only…to discover…after a few bowls…something wasn’t right…yeah…it took a couple of bowls…I was distracted…okay…geez…any way…I investigated…to find…old-fashioned…not…quick cooking…displayed prominently on the box…no wonder…they seemed a little chewy…hmmm…
But…did that teach me my lesson…no…of course not…last shopping trip…I reached for prunes…now…that’s simple enough…no need to inspect the package…prunes are prunes…aren’t they…well…yes…except…when…they are…orange flavored…of course this was discovered…after…opening the bag…and realizing…I really don’t like orange flavored prunes…
Bertha…naturally…points out…that…these grocery faux pas…are a lot like the events of my life…sometimes…I get in a rush…don’t pay attention to what I’m doing…take action…and…don’t get the results…that I am anticipating…
What can I say…she’s right…I’m taking it to heart…hopefully…I’m learning the lesson…it’s almost time to shop again…

  1. Jane, the steel cut ( old fashioned )oats are 100% more nutritious. Like eating a whole grain. I eat those every morning also…well, not every morning…about 3 days a week…got to have my egg fix a few days a week :)

    Orange flavored prunes …I'd have to question how and with what that is done. Love dried fruit of any choice.
    Apricot being my favorite !

    And pay attention girl…this is serious ~

  2. Bea…I know that the steel cut are the best…I just usually don't have…take…the time to make them…and…who knows about the prunes…I know I've gotta get some regular ones…I use them for snacks when I ride my bike…lots of potassium…

    I know it is…serious…on several levels…thanks for helping me take better care of myself!
