Early last year, I decided to change up my diet. For years I’d been threatening to go vegetarian. Considering I wasn’t a big meat eater anyway, I didn’t think it would be a hard switch. I’d try it for a month or so and eventually just went back to meat. It was more out of habit than anything. Everyone else in my house eats meat so I did too. For a while now, I’ve been done with pork and beef. Still, I was ready to go further. Well, last year I cut it down even more. I decided to go pescatarian.

So many people make a resolution to be healthier in the New Year. I found at least one way to make it easier to actually do.
The only meat I eat now is seafood. I only didn’t go full vegetarian because – sushi! I don’t eat it often but man I need to keep that option open. One issue that I’ve run into with my new diet is eating on the run. There aren’t a lot of options for fish only eaters. That means I’ve got to roll prepared as much as possible. I try not to get caught out there hungry or just grab a salad while I’m out. As for at home, that’s gotten easier. The reason I fell back into the habit of eating meat before is because I didn’t have many options. Now that I have a seafood option, I’m not concerned with other meats.

Needless to say, I’ve been stocking up on the seafood options at the grocery store. Recently, I checked out a new store. It’s called Grocery Outlet. Based on the name alone, I totally expected to see some bargain prices. I was not disappointed. One of the first things I saw when I walked in was a loaf of bread for 99 cents. It was the same name brand bread we always eat but end up paying almost three dollars for. Aside from the the great prices there were also so many options for natural and organic foods. That’s a huge win with me! They have a variety of foods labeled NOSH which stands for Natural Organic Specialty and Healthy.

Being able to eat healthier foods and not leave your whole check at the grocery store is definitely a plus. I found lots of organic veggies and other produce. Being a pescatarian, I was on the hunt for seafood. Thankfully, they carry tons of options for seafood and lots of varieties of fish. I picked up some wild caught salmon.

My son went with me and he was sold on the store once he saw some gelatin molds for one of his favorite characters. Ha! He was also a big fan of the healthy snack section. He wanted to try everything he saw and didn’t want to leave.

Going into the New Year, most people make resolutions to be healthier in some way. From what I’ve seen eating healthy and affordable groceries with Grocery Outlet is totally doable. They really do make it so easy to make good choices without your wallet feeling the pinch.

Have you made any resolutions this year? Was being healthier one of them?

9 comments on “About that “be healthier” resolution…”

  1. I’ve made a couple of resolutions this year and being healthier is one of the goals I’m trying to achieve. I will have to see if we have a Grocery Outlet in my area, I don’t recall ever seeing one.

  2. I would love to eat healthier but I’m really picky. So I’m really forcing myself when it comes to being healthier. I’m not a seafood or sushi fan – though I hear those who like it have that struggle!

  3. I don’t know how many times I promised myself I’d be ‘healthier.’ I’d definitely like to step it up!! There are so many easy steps that I could take to lead a healthier lifestyle.

  4. I am a vegetarian, and eating on the run and having it be heathy is def. limited. My DIL eats fish, and her options like you noted, are just as limited even though she’s got that added dish. And yep, like you, she said she didn’t want to give up sushi. 🙂

  5. Isn’t it awesome to be able to eat healthier regardless if it’s the new year or not! I think this is a nice source of organic and fresh ingredients. They have a lot of options as well.

  6. I often thought about going vegan and have been experimenting with recipes. It’s a lot of work but the food does taste good. Someday I might change over, but I don’t think I could give up my sushi either.

  7. Eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle is always a top priority for me so yeah, it’s one of my resolutions too! Might go with the vegan route pretty soon!

  8. I found with setting resolutions, I’ve been most successful when I’ve had a specific and measurable goal. And then a strategy to achieve it. I love what you’re doing and will have to see if I have one of those grocery stores near me.
