I was amazed at the size of containers at Costco. When we bought an 8 pound bag of Oatmeal I thought, "It will take me 6 months to eat this!"
We (meaning mostly Heidi) ate it in a month and a half.
Before you think I am a glutton, please realize we eat cheap. VERY cheap. Not out of choice, (I miss my fresh fruits and veggies) but out of necessity. Most of our meals consist of rice. I eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast, and more than occasionally, but less than frequently eat it for dinner as well. We are learning to get creative with rice and tuna and spinach concoctions (see Brett's facebook burn story) and Brett makes a mean PB and J. :) We do buy frozen veggies, but don't use them often. Milk is a cereal food not a beverage and yogurt in a smoothie is a treat!
Getting back on track...
I was just astounded when I realized that THAT MUCH FOOD (eating the one serving measurement) had gone through my body for a monthly average of 1.4 meals a day!
I guess it is kind of a wake up call to see how much we put into our bodies. It also makes me appreciate the energy it gives me and motivates me to USE the energy I put in.
