Shopping for food ALWAYS is a good start to the day! I had such good intentions in mind at Whole Foods this morning. I made a “short” list (yeah right) that included essentials like peanut butter, fruit and larabars. Well, of course when I got in to the store all my intentions went out the window and I spent double my gift card amount! Oh, poo. I think the stuff I bought was just expensive. But…..I needed it!
Here’s what I got—aka the “essentials”:
Almond Butter (switchin’ it up from my usual PB)
a $5.99 bottle of merlot because I’m classy like that
individual almond milks
maple syrup (this is $$$!)
a “pro bar”…never tried this before but it has enough calories and fat to be a meal and I might have to use it for a makeshift lunch while I’m in vero beach working at the yacht club. I’m sure they will be giving me “employee meals” but who knows what that is and I like to be prepared for any situation!!
A Nana PB cookie~my fav!
When I got home I reheated a Veganomicon Black Bean Burger that I had made last month and put in the freezer. I had it on an Ezekiel english muffin with some ketchup. Also had a plum on the side.
I’m planning to make the Super-Charge Me Cookies out of ED&BV this afternoon to bring with me for snacks as well. The ingredients in these cookies pretty much rock (oats, dried fruit, almond butter, flax meal) and they look pretty darn energizing. I’ve been wanting to make these since I bought the cookbook but found spelt flour for the first time today at the store!
