I had yesterday off. So I did my favorite pastime, grocery shopping! For reals, I love going grocery shopping. I’d do it for people if I could.
So what did I get?
First stop Whole Foods.
I got a package of organic power greens, walnuts and raisins, and organic strawberries. I could have gotten these items from Trader Joe’s where I did this weeks shopping, but I like these specific items that are sold at Whole Foods. Picky much? Yes. Yes I am. Besides I had to go to Whole Foods to pick up a vitamin supplement. I have been slacking in this area. Shame, shame. So I decided to get on a good foot. These vitamins by Mega Food are vegan friendly made to supplement a vegan diet. I’m not vegan, but I need all of the nutrients that are packed into this tablet. Specifically iron and B12.
They are a little expensive. Even the sale price for $38.99, marked down from the original $48.99, is steep. But this is my health. I’d rather pay this much now than face major hospital fees later.
Then I headed to Trader Joe’s. Well, I got a cup of Starbucks decaf first, then I went to Trader Joe’s.
I got the bulk of my groceries from Trader Joe’s this week. I alternate between Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s depending on what of my favorite products that I need most.
This week’s grocery list:
(Starting from the top photo)
Frozen edamame, frozen pineapples, frozen Very Cherry blend, frozen Blueberries, frozen sliced leeks, a red onion, shredded carrots, zucchini, squash, cucumbers
Multigrain bread, a bag of gala apples, almond butter, super fruits jelly, tempeh, baby bella mushrooms, cauliflower, coconut milk, bran flakes, kale, grapes
And of course I could not help but creating fabulous meals. For lunch I had a fresh green salad.
and for dinner I found a fabulous recipe for beet burgers from my favorite site Sweet Potato Soul. I did a few things different, but the meal was just as tasty.
Stay tuned for my recipe and a complete breakdown of this meal including the honey glazed heirloom carrots.
Eat well! Be well!
