I'll pat myself on the back for that one!

I just got home from the grocery store and I am very pleased with my purchases, on several levels!
First off, I made very wise choices while shopping today and even my splurges were healthful! All whole wheat, organic, low fat, no fat, low/no sugar products and lots of fresh produce! While in the produce section it occurred to me that the majority of my list was comprised of fresh vegetables and lean proteins! Yay me!
Bonus number two: I took my time while shopping today and made my first step big step to becoming an organic consuming household! The grocery store I go to carries alot of Nature's Promise products, which is OK with me! I made sure that the meat and dairy I was purchasing today came from grass fed animals with no growth hormones and such! We don't condone the mistreatment of animals in order to have bigger steaks around here anymore! (At least not as much as I can help!) Any tips on making this transition are welcome!
Added bonus: The total bill was still within our regular amount by about $20!!! (And that's including the Good Housekeeping mag and potted tulips I picked up!)
I wish that I could bottle this mini-high that I have from making conscious choices to take care of my body and the planet at the same time! It would be alot easier when those old temptations come around! The motto for the week: Honor Your Body! Now, I'm off to enjoy my organic hummus and organic blue corn tortilla chips!! Until then.....
