Adventure to Whole Foods

Friday, November 19, 2010

Howdy everyone,

Yay for Friday! What a long week! How was yours?

When we decided to move to Dallas, I was so excited to get to do my grocery shopping at Whole Foods. It's pretty much the mecca of health food! You can imagine my disappointment when I found out that there was not a Whole Foods anywhere near our house. The closest one is about 20 minutes away, and there is no way on earth I can convince Eric to drive that far for groceries. I guess I would have to convince him to shop at Whole Foods first, but that is a whole other blog! :)

Today, I took advantage of  my free schedule and made my way over to the Whole Foods. I probably spent about an hour drooling over all of the wonderful goodies the store had to offer like a kid in a candy store. There are so many cool things there, that you can't find anywhere else. I tried to take some pictures of my adventure, however I don't think that is technically allowed so I had to be extra sneaky!

One of the first things I saw when I walked in was this crazy looking fruit. They are called lemon hands. What an original name! They are pretty crazy (or creepy) looking!

Next, I came across the largest grapefruits I have ever seen. Yep, those green monsters are grapefruits! Check out how much bigger they are than their red cousins to their right.

As I wondered through the aisles, I came across this little bunch of ready to eat soups. They are essentially the healthy version of Ramen Noodles! :) There were so many crazy flavors to choose from, you could probably have a different one every day for a month.

A few aisles later, I saw these little beauties. Don't they look like they belong in a European soda shop? I've never tried any, but they sure looked pretty!

So here's what I ended up with! One can of Aduki beans. They are delicious and very high in fiber and vitamins. I also got some fresh flax seeds, and some Emergence-C to try and kick this nasty cold (or whatever it is). Lastly, I purchased some Tofu Shirataki noodles. They are gluten-free, vegan, have zero cholesterol, zero sugar and only 40 calories for the entire bag. I will let you know how they turn out!

Well, I'm off to do some Christmas shopping. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Food for thought:
Do you love Whole Foods as much as I do?
What is everyone doing this weekend?

In health,

  1. Hey! Don't know what whole foods you are going to or where your house is exactly, but there is a Sprouts in Coppell that's really similar! Check it out if you haven't!

  2. i WISH we had Whole Foods over here. every time i watch Top Chef i get so jealous. :) hope you had a productful christmas shopping!

  3. I love whole foods!! Let me know how those tofu noodles are. My cousin makes this really good stuff with tofu bc she's a vegan she gets really creative with what she makes. I also really love their chocolate chip canoli (shame on me), the 365 all-natural vanilla creme cookies (also vegan), sushi, anything made fresh, and their beef chili. I could go on, but I will stop there!

    Yum, Whole Foods... now I might go tomorrow. :)
