A small haul

Yesterday, no one was here to work on the kitchen remodel. We knew ahead of time that they wouldn’t be working on our job. So, Adam and I ventured to Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, and he wanted to stop at Best Buy.

We stopped at Whole Foods first. We’ve never been to a Whole Foods before. I’ve heard from countless people that it’s expensive, so I wasn’t really planning on buying anything there. Bu, I wanted to check it out. It’s massive! I bought two things there, Sir Kensington Mayo and a package of Biscotti. Haven’t tried the mayo yet, but I’m excited to have a healthier option of mayo in the fridge. The biscotti is just a treat.

At Trader Joe’s, I bought a couple more things. I got two bags of the frozen roasted potatoes with peppers and onions. I think this is something that Tim will enjoy too. I got some organic red grapes, a package of sweet baby bell peppers, and a package of Applegate Naturals roasted turkey breast. I also picked up two packages of  British Muffins, one whole wheat and one multigrain. They are quite yummy, tried a whole wheat one this morning. The Trader Joe’s Fruit Bars were something I wanted to try, even knowing the sugar content is high. Tried the Apple/Strawberry one yesterday. It’s very sweet, too sweet for me! I won’t buy those again. Haven’t tried the Think Thin bars yet, maybe today. I also picked up, just for fun, a package of chocolate covered raisins and one of dark chocolate covered almonds. I like having an occasional sweet treat, and both of these are yummy.

Yes, I bought several sweet things. But, the goal of my healthy eating is to be able to enjoy something sweet sometimes. The key is to not overdo it. We have a fridge again now, and you can rest assured that I made a trip to the grocery store after the fridge was delivered and it is stocked with fresh fruits and veggies.

Maybe by the end of the day, our new stove will be up and running. Fingers crossed!
