Fueling my body with green apple and peanut butter. Not only are Apples rich in fiber but they are also great for digestion. Peanut Butter is packed with protein and are also very filling. My goal is to look and feel my best so I vowed to eat like I mean it. So I built a lifestyle that includes fresh foods on my plate everyday. This transition has me feeling, thinking and sleeping better. I underestimated the power of food and how it effects me. I learned that what I eat today, determines how I feel tomorrow. What is your food doing for you? Are you fueling your body or just feeding your body?
Avocado is a delicious fruit that detoxifies and supports skin hydration. This fruit is known as a super food because it has a ton of benefits. Avocados are also good sources of energy. I love them because they are very filling and can be incorporated in any meal of the day. Slice some up, lay it on top of some delicious homemade bread, add a sprinkle of black pepper & sea salt and enjoy! I make my bread completely from scratch, I find that it taste much better and I like to know exactly what is going into my food. However, any bread at your local food store will do just fine.
Today, I am fueling my body with my favorite fruits. Apple detoxifies, Banana supports healthy hair and nails & Strawberries boosts our immune system. Have your food work for you. Lets change our approach to food. Need to detox? Grab an apple. Need stronger nails? Grab a banana. Need help with your immune system? Grab a bowl of strawberries.

I purchased 15 items that will last me for a whole month and I spent less than $40! Mathematically speaking, if I spend this month every month for a whole year, less than $500 will be going towards my groceries. Sounds almost unbelievable, when Americans usually spend $150 a week on groceries. Insane! You can eat better and save so much here at ALDI.
Two locations here in The Bronx, pick one and start saving.
