This post is slightly all over the place but I will try to make it coherent!
So I’ve been shopping at Whole Foods lately, more often than usual. Not totally sure why I started going to Whole Foods more regularly and I really just grab a few things but the few things I grab, we do like a lot. I’m not even going to Whole Foods for the food bar!
This picture of my basket isn’t clear of everything I bought the other day but I will list what I bought plus our Whole Foods staples below.
Organic Garbanzo Beans: The price is the same as Trader Joe’s so if I’m in Whole Foods, I will grab a few cans.
Frozen Blueberries: Slightly higher in price (I think) than Trader Joe’s but I will grab a bag to save myself from going to both stores if I don’t feel like making two stops. I need my frozen blueberries for my oatmeal every morning!
365 Organic Shoe String Fries: My son loves these french fries, and so do I.
365 Organic Blueberry Mini Waffles: For my little boy, who is 15 but still likes his mini waffles the same as he did when he was three years old.
Purple sweet potatoes: Can’t see them in the photo but they were in my basket. I’m back to eating sweet potatoes more often after a year-long hiatus.
Organic Old Fashioned Oatmeal: I will buy this either at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, depending upon where I am.
365 Barbeque Sauce: WE LOVE IT.
365 Tomato Sauces: There’s a wide variety available, we like them all.
Organic Carrots with Ranch Dip: Can’t see it in the picture, my son likes this as a snack. It is packaged with individual snack packs.
Banza: I had to finally try the “pasta” made from chickpeas. While I am not a huge pasta eater (I was as a kid), I will say the Banza pasta is terrific if you want a high protein pasta substitute made from chickpeas. I do really like it and find it extremely filling.
I also frequent the Whole Foods prepared foods section when I am in the store as my son really could care less for what I cook, which is fine because I don’t want to cook anyway. I feel that the prepared foods are a compromise between actual take out and my cooking. Sometimes I get the organic rotisserie chicken or he likes their bacon turkey burgers. I also buy American cheese regularly, and then turkey from their deli counter for the weeks when he wants sandwiches.
First Aid Beauty
I recently bought this First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser and really like it! It’s great for sensitive skin and priced really well. At Sephora, they gave me a sample pack of First Aid Beauty’s facial radiance pads and I think I will end up buying them. My plan is to also try their eye cream. I’ve done some reading and it gets great reviews.
This is me, summed up in a quote.
I like to drink a Nordstrom latte while browsing the shoe department. I haven’t seen much though lately at Nordstrom, at least not in the store. And if I am being honest, the overabundance of friendly shoe department employees has been annoying me. I mean, sure, it’s great when there’s someone to help you BUT I do not need five or six shoe department employees asking if I need assistance. It’s overkill and annoying, and then I tell them all I do not need help when maybe I actually do.
These Adidas by Alexander Wang are still on my mind. Love the ribbon laces. I also haven’t forgotten that I want these Miu Miu glitter sneakers but I’m trying not to need them. Everyone is all about the Golden Goose sneakers and I’m over here like, aside from the slip-on mules sneakers, (which I couldn’t try on because too many people tried to help me), the rest just seem so basic already for the price. For less money, I always like Meline sneakers and, Vintage Havana has star sneakers now too.
On another note, I got really excited when I found this swimsuit cover-up from Target for super cheap. I’m definitely in summer mode already when it comes to shopping. I think I’m going to try this Ruffle-Trim Triangle Bikini Top from the Gap. I already have the bottom from last year. DEFINITELY going to love this two-piece ruffle bikini from BECCA because her swimwear fits me well. Here’s my swimsuit shopping mindset post from last year which is still pretty popular.
Also! Before I forget! My treadmill runs this week have been terrific once again. Can’t wait to chat about the details in my workout recap this weekend. 🙂What I've been getting at Whole Foods plus fashion faves on the blog today! #wholefoods #fashion #liketoknow.it #firstaidbeauty #nordstrom #bloomingdales Click To Tweet
