britchanel Posted August 7, 2013 Share Posted August 7, 2013 Hey everyone! I need some guidance and advice. I was married on July 27 not-so-domesticated me (my mother tried, I wasn't interested at the time) is trying to become a paleo Betty Crocker! I'm excited about being a wife and have adopted the grocery shopping and cooking. *Random insertion: my mother recently became the home ec teacher at a high school. Immediately upon walking into the room, I saw a food pyramid poster. I begged my mom not to teach her students that they needed 6-11 servings of grains a day. My bread-,cereal-, grain-loving husband chimed in, "Yes, because you really don't need any grains at all." Breakthrough! Anyways, since I'm in control of what we eat, I am having the hardest time. We recently moved to a bigger city and I have access to a plethora of health food stores and farmers markets (love it!!!). We're still on somewhat of a budget since I'm finishing up my master's degree this year. I walked into a store the other day and left with practically nothing because I felt so overwhelmed at shopping for myself and my husband. I was looking at a sales paper for Sprouts tonight and realized that I have absolutely NO clue how much things should cost or what a "good price" for something is. I'm finding it would be easier to resort to SAD foods (probably much to my husband's delight!), but it is NOT what I want to do. Grocery shopping for myself was easy, as I rarely prepared full meals (except when I cooked for my then boyfriend or fiancÃ©). Any words of advice on grocery shopping, meal planning, cooking for a newlywed? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
