Greens Lunch

Today for lunch I picked up a salad and a cup of soup at Whole Foods while I was doing some shopping and I’m so glad I did! I found my favorite soup there, Triple Squash, and made my own salad from the salad bar. In my salad I had greens, about 4 ounce of asian tofu salad, bell peppers, celery, carrots, a few tablespoons of corn, about a tablespoon of guacamole, and some diced red onions. I sprinkled some balsamic vin/extra virgin olive oil dressing on it and brought it home where Ryan was eating leftover pizza from last night. So of course I had to eat his pizza crust! 🙂 I forgot to mention last night that the pizza crust from this place was stoneground whole wheat!!! I was so excited that they offered that!



My entire lunch was about 400 calories (roughly).

    Salad looks delicious, except for the gross onions! I LOVE pizza crust too and have a hard time not eating it off other people’s plates!! Try re-naming your soup picture and then re-uploading it. That’s worked for me in the past.
    Have a good day!

    Thanks! The website was the biggest headache I have ever had to set up!!!!! It was SO frustrating but thankfully Kath ( helped me every step of the way through it! It does cost money…you sign up with a host and you pay them a monthly fee. I’m glad you like Roys–Its fun to work at one of my favorite restaurants!!

    I hope everything went well with your x-ray and that you enjoy your day off. I had a question about grocery shopping. I would like to start buying more of my groceries at Whole Foods or Central Market but am on a tight budget (like you!). You always seem to do great with your shopping. Do you have any suggestions?

    This is such a fun question to answer because grocery shopping is my favorite thing to do and if I could I would spend way more money than I already do!!! First of all: buying organic, natural foods is very important to me. I make it a priority because to me, organic just tastes better and makes me feel better. I like knowing that my produce isn’t covered with weird sprays and chemicals and that no trans fat is ever used in any product I buy. So…every week I make 2 lists—one for the reg. grocery store and 1 for whole foods. I go to the regular store for things like tuna in pouches, cottage cheese, yogurt, spices that I need for the recipes I make during the week, and so on. The other list for whole foods contains my main products like seafood, fruit, veggies, oats, bread….I set a budget for myself before I go to the store and really try not to go over it. I already know basically how much everything costs because I buy a lot of the same things week to week so I know generally how much my grocery bill SHOULD be. Unless its a special occasion or I have miraculously made a ton of money that week at work, I stick to the number I set for myself. I do spend a little more than the average person, I’m sure. But buying good, natural, wholesome food is totally worth it to me and I would actually rather spend the money on that then on a new pair of shoes or something! (i’m weird, I know!)

    In the future, I want to do a sort of personalized grocery service for people who want to eat healthier and make better choices at the store because there’s so much to choose from! Hopefully that answered your question a little bit 🙂
