I am writing this post late at night, which is usually when I write my posts. It is getting close to 10pm and right before I wrote this post I finished all my grocery shopping for tomorrow, without even leaving my desk. Do you know how nice that feels? I had a ton of stuff to buy tomorrow, and Kris is working all day, so it is just me and the kids. Rather than dragging the troops out into the snow I decided to stay home, get some work done, and have the groceries delivered right to me. Giant Eagle just started a new service where they deliver the groceries right to your door and I am LOVING it.
My main goal for the new year is to transition to a healthier diet incorporating more fresh produce and little to none meat. So I have been on the lookout for simple veggie recipes that I can make at home. Someone mentioned to me that I should try stuffed avocado salad, the healthy fats in the avocado make this meal filling, and the combination of veggies and light dressing make it super tasty. I ordered all my ingredients the day before using Giant Eagle Curbside Express Delivery.
The Giant Eagle delivery service allows you to shop online for all your groceries, including fresh produce. Then you can choose a time to have the food delivered, and pay online. Within the order you can leave specific notes, for example if you prefer green banana’s you can note that, or if you want an extra large onion, they will find that for you. You can also choose to allow substitutions or not. When I first started using the Curbside Express service (a few months ago) I didn’t allow substitutions. I would skip an item if it wasn’t in stock rather than having the personal shopper find a replacement. But now I do allow substitutions because I have grown to trust Giant Eagle personal shoppers. I’ve learned that they will always choose the best of the best products for me.
My healthy new year dinner turned out so well I had to share it with all of you! The recipe is below.
