First up some yummy fruit! Grapes, strawberries and pluots (!!!), all organic.
Romaine, zucchini (for raw zucchini pasta), carrots, tomato, garlic, basil (the last three ingredients for a raw sauce) and some huge celery stalks. I typically HATE raw celery but it is so good for you and is especially good for inflammation which I always need help with. I have a ton of Angela's Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter and I thought that they would be a perfect match and a great way to get me to eat celery so I'm excited to try that!
Here's the fun stuff!! I saw the new Earth Balance Vegan Cheddar Squares (Vegan Cheez Its, what?!) and had to try them. I will definitely let you know how they are :) I also love salt and vinegar so decided to try Pop Chips in that flavor. They are supposedly lighter than potato chips? And I guess not greasy because they are popped? We'll see I guess! In the back on the right there are Sea Snax Chomperz which are some sort of puffed seaweed chip I think. I have no idea but again, I was intrigued so I grabbed some. I didn't realize how expensive they were until after I looked at my receipt so hopefully they are good!
Finally, my Whole Foods FINALLY started carrying my favorite and the only coconut water I will drink - 100% Raw Coconut Water. It is so delicious and as you can see they are bright pink! This is a good thing apparently because the antioxidants in the coconut water will turn pink in a reaction to the light so it is my understanding that the brighter the pink the more antioxidants? I could be totally wrong but that's what I heard :) I got one large bottle and two small eight oz. bottles... in retrospect it would have been more cost effective to just buy another big bottle but the little ones were so cute :X
This isn't part of the grocery haul but I just got them for like $1.50 each and I love them so I thought I'd share! These are my new water cups, one for home one for work. I love them because they are my two favorite things - skulls and owls! So cute, I'm so excited to use them.
OK that's all for today. I think my grocery haul is a good balance between healthy and a few fun treats and I'm really truly going to try and photograph some more meals for you. I'm going to start eating smaller meals more often again because my digestion is out of whack again and can only eat small portions for now before feeling yucky so you should be seeing some small, veggie packed meals coming up over the next week!
Happy Friday everyone. One more day until my weekend ;)
