Saturday grocery shopping and dinner.

Went grocery shopping at Sprouts today and found so many goodies at great prices. I've heard so many people say that buying healthy food is too expensive but I've found it's the opposite. I bought a cilantro bunch (for juices and bean stews) for 34 cents. How could I possibly beat that? Also picked up fresh organic wheat grass for $1.49. Made a juice with it as soon as I got home with a base of green tea, very refreshing! For dinner I just had one of my favorite dishes that my mom has been making me since I was a little Sonia. It's very simple and very fast to make. I have tweaked it a bit to make it more healthy (coconut oil instead of butter) and vegetarian friendly (she adds chicken boulion).


1/8 of an onion, chopped
1 small tomato, chopped
2 medium zucchinis, cut into cubes
Muenster cheese (or your fav vegan cheese)
Coconut oil
1/8 cup vegetable broth (this is the substitute for chicken boullion)
sea salt to taste

On low medium heat, add coconut oil to pan,  add onions and saute; once they've caramelized, add tomatoes. Once tomatoes are a little mushy, add zucchini, broth, and a little sea salt. Cover and simmer on low heat till zucchini is soft. Turn off heat and uncover; add cheese on top. Serve once cheese has melted using a draining cooking spoon. I don't do that however, because I serve over brown rice and I like the excess broth on my rice. Yum! Sounds simple but it's so delicious. The recipe might be enough for 2, but I like a big serving of it.

Thanks for reading!



  1. I agree with you that healthy food isn't expensive as long as you buy in season when it comes to produce! :)

    That recipe sounds delicious! I love simple recipes like that.

    Looking forward to more!!!!!! :)

  2. I find our diet super cheap! It's great!

    Omgosh it's so yum. Sounds bland but chunks of zucchini replace the craving for something meaty, I find.

    Awwwww thank you for all the support!:') Much appreciated! *Hugs*
