Every January I order stockup food, and I hope most of it will last until summer. I did this late last month and have noticed that much of the items are taking longer to get here than in previous years.
Anyone else notice their Amazon orders are taking longer than usual?
That’s not to say that some of the items didn’t come in after just a few days, but many others are taking two weeks or more to get here.
Anyway, I am also going to order canning jars from Wal-Mart, because that’s how I plan to store all the food I bought from Amazon. Usually I just leave things in there original packaging, but I think my food shelves will look better if I use the jars. And this will help in my organizing efforts as well.
So, I’ve ordered these items:
3 pounds Organic Almond flour
4 pounds Organic Coconut flour
.02 pound Sea Salt
8 ounces Cacao Powder (Trying this for the first time.) (Will buy more if I like it.)
14 ounces Ground Flax Seed
10 ounces Slivered Almonds
4 pounds Organic Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
2 Paleo Pancake Mixes (Trying this for the first time.) (Will buy more if I like it.)
2 packages Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (Will not last until summer.)
56 ounces Organic Coconut Oil
16 ounces Organic Maple Syrup (Will not last until summer.)
3 pounds Raw Honey
3 small jars Almond Butter
3 jars Cocoa Bliss
At the grocery store, I bought: (These will not last until summer)
2 dozen eggs
Organic Almond Oil (Trying this for the first time.)
Sesame Oil (Trying this for the first time.)
5 pounds Potatoes (Trying this for the first time.)
2 pounds Butter
1 bag Organic Popcorn Kernels
1 pound Ground Beef
1.25 pound Stew Beef
1 pound Ground Sausage
From Misfits Market
Fresh Organic Parsley to dry (This will not last until summer.)
1 Organic Fennel, drying the herb part
1 Whole Cloves package Organic
1 Organic Cinnamon
It was a pretty penny for all of this, for sure, but I used my income taxes to pay for it. Like I said, I do this every year, then I replace items as I use them. Eating mostly organic does cost more, and I don’t pretend to eat organic all the time. I do the best I can, when I have the money. I also live alone, and am only buying food for myself. And my Misfits Market organic produce doesn’t cost much more than regular produce at Wal-Mart.
I feel good about having a good stock of food, and can’t wait to get it all organized on the shelves.
I am trying to get back to the healthy eating, at 80% of my food intake being Vegetarian/Paleo/Whole30. Super healthy most of the time. Having these items on hand will be helpful.
Most of my food dollars for the next 4 or 5 months will be spent on fresh produce.
