Oops she did it again 🙁
I got sucked in once again to the Whole Foods trap!!! I should have known it was coming; I had to go to Target to pick up some swiffers and paper towels and Target happens to be connected to Whole Foods. Can you really just go into one and not the other?! I guess not. I did do pretty well though in terms of price. I spent $95 and got a week’s worth of groceries for us, which is $15 more than last week but you know what? I’d actually rather spend the extra $15 and know that my veggies are organic. It’s a toss up but in my mind, quality is worth more than quantity because you only have ONE body and you need to treat it right!
Here’s the loot:
- super cool green bags that apparently keep produce fresh for two weeks!
- Baked tofu
- dried northern beans
- wheat berries
- whole wheat pastry flour
- frozen spinach
- some sort of tempeh lunch thing
- Raw almond butter (on sale for only $8.99!!!!)
- goat cheese
- Yerba Mate tea
- unsweetened vanilla hempmilk
Okay so I didn’t “need” this stuff necessarily, but I forgot to get lotion at Target and I’m out of bubble bath and both of these were on sale! These bath salts smell heavenly. I love this line!
I also got some chicken, which I forgot to take a picture of. So for less than $100, I think I did pretty well! I packed all my produce in green bags—-
And I’ll let you know exactly how long this stuff stays fresh because the box boasts most produce will keep for up to two weeks!
So, anyways, back to my morning pre-Whole Foods shopping spree. I ran my two miles outside in the wet grass and then came inside and did about 20 minutes of a morning flow yoga download. I’m just so sore that it was rather painful, so I stood on my head for awhile and called it a day. 🙂
In this lovely concoction I used a frozen banana, 1 cup almond milk and a HUGE handful of baby spinach:
It was SO delicious! I swear, there was no way you could taste the spinach. You’ll just have to trust me on this one. All this bad boy tasted like was a banana almond shake. I promise!! I felt so great after because I had downed an entire salad. 🙂
And then around 12:30 I met my friend Lanie for lunch! We went to a total hole-in-the-wall in downtown called Cafe Hey and I was super impressed by their vegetarian, vegan and healthy options! I love little hippy places 🙂
I got a cup of the soup of the day, which roasted red pepper and tomato along with a half of the hummus and veggie wrap
What a steal for $6.99! The soup was homemade and delicious. Not a speck of cream was used; rather it was light and flavorful. The half hummus wrap had been pressed so it was all warm and toasty and the hummus definitely tasted homemade as well. I would definitely go back!
After lunch Lanie took me to explore the Asian market next door
I was in heaven! I’d never been in an Asian market before and they had eeeeeeverything! I could have roamed for hours. In the end, I walked out with this small plate + bowl because I couldn’t say no.
Okay, seriously, how cute is the cat plate?! One look and I just had to have it. It helped that it was only $2. 😉
Lanie loves the market!
I’m home and its about to rain AGAIN. I secretly love it though. Ryan is coming home earlier tonight and I am making us a gourmet dinner, Rachel Ray style! See it when I come back 😉
I forgot to tell you!
