Hey yaaaall. Time for a recap on this week’s grocery finds. I already went grocery shopping the other day for the staples: yogurt, almond milk, bananas, eggs, kale, carrots, blueberries, and string cheese – so per usual I went after work last night around 10pm, when Fairway Market is nice and quiet. I’m always in a spending mood after working a 12 hour shift, which is obviously not a good thing but in a sense is OK because I’m always up for buying things that I normally wouldn’t. What’s funny is that I bet if my mom did posts like this she would NEVER run out of material. She is basically the poster child for Whole Foods; I think she has every food product ever created in her household.
Prime example of something I wouldn’t usually purchase: this $5 bag of SUPER CHIPS. It’s that time of the month and I feel like a fat ass with all the snacking I’m doing, so I figured I should grab something crunchy and good for me. I will definitely let you know the verdict on these! Also, cannot WAIT to try that Chobani almond and coconut Flip.
Cinnamon Raisin Ezekial…OK, this is a staple as well. Toasted with some Smart Balance butter…mmmm. And a box of Peanut Butter Cookie Luna bars, which I have yet to try and am pumped about.
So I really, really tried not to pick up any treats. But these were staring me in the face. Staring my monthly cramps in the face. And begging to be purchased..so I obliged. At 120 calories a cookie they aren’t SO bad. Especially if they are as jumbo as they say and I will only want one of them (and when does that happen?)
More Chobani, because I just go through so many of them. Some mixed fruit (papaya, blueberries, kiwi), Bolthouse Farms Mocha Cappucino because I am just LOVING Bolthouse thrown in my protein shakes, some Vanlla Designer Whey, and an Acai machine Naked smoothie.
I picked up some chocolate PB2 powder that I saw on sale because I’ve been seeing it pop up on a lot of other blogs and figured I would give it a try. When 2 tbsp of the powder is mixed with water (creating your own peanut butter) it slashes the fat and calories in half. Knowing this, I think creating this mixture and warming it up to drizzle over my daily waffle will be a greeeeeat tasting idea.
And that’s as exciting as it got, my friends! I also picked up some Kashi cereal that I dug into immediately upon walking in the apartment door. Gotta love Kashi.
