Whole Lotta Whole Foods!

Hey everyone! Happy Thursday :) It's so close to Friday which is awesome! Unfortunately my weekend off has been cut in half as I was contacted by a photographer last minute to work on Saturday. So that will be my 13th straight day of work, 6 of those days being 10-12 hr days.  As you can imagine, I can't wait for Sunday ;)

I wanted to go see Delilah after I got out of work today so I decided to make my Whole Foods run early and be there by 8am when they open. I got an awesome haul and some great meals out of it!

Check out the haul first!


Produce haul: HUGE container of spinach, carrots, baby bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower and two avocados.


I also got strawberries which I forgot to put in the other photo. Stuffed grape leaves, Vega Choc-a-lot, garlic and herb cashews, cashews & peanuts (for trail mix), dried fruit (for trail mix), brown rice crackers, 3 larabars (key lime pie, coconut cream pie, lemon) and an apple Pure bar.

Since I was going to be at Whole Foods, I figured I'd just grab breakfast and lunch there too. Every single meal and snack I've eaten today (all ingredients in dinner too) was purchased at Whole Foods :)


For breakfast I grabbed some steel cut oats and topped it with my own cinnamon, stevia, raisins and walnuts.


2 plums for snack that were purchased the last time I went to Whole Foods.


Wouldn't you know it, I commented on Shen's post just yesterday that I wished my Whole Foods had Tofu Scramble in the morning. Of course when I look today they had it for the very first time... well at least that I had seen! I decided that it wouldn't be right to just squander this opportunity even though I had vowed not to eat tofu today ;) I grabbed some scramble, a teeny bit of potatoes (on the left side of the container at the bottom... those teeny tiny pieces are tiny cut potatoes and onions) and I decided to add some fresh veggies and grabbed some tomato and cucumber salad. Such a great lunch!


Dinner was a gluten free tortilla pizza with lots of yummy spinach and some Daiya. So delicious and pretty too! And all ingredients were purchased at Whole Foods ;)

Thank you Whole Foods for fueling my day and my week! Today was a pretty good food day. Hopefully the next two days will go quickly! Hope you all have a lovely evening :)

  1. That Tofu Hash looks exactly like what I had. The company must have made a massive batch somewhere. I didn't see any Tomatoes and Cucumbers like that though.

    1. The tofu was sooooo good! I couldn't believe the timing on it too, I had JUST mentioned to you how much I wanted to try it! The cucumber and tomato salad is a standard one they have there all the time. It's very light and refreshing.

      Thanks, yeah it is kind of a bummer but I'll definitely make sure that Sunday is a day devoted to relaxing and recharging. 13 in a row is definitely tough! I feel like I'm getting old, lol!

  4. That's a nice grocery haul. I have to be careful about WF because I end up piling my basket up with so much stuff. I could walk up and down the aisles there for hours. That tortilla pizza looks especially awesome. Yum :)

    1. Thanks Nikki! I know, I could waste so much time and money there. I've been splurging a little more the last two trips because I have been working hard and I deserve it ;) The tortilla pizza was so delicious! Perfect when a pizza craving hits.

  7. Hooray for Whole Foods! So based on what I'm seeing here, I predict chopped salads, veggie trays (stuffed grape leaves, carrots), chocolate protein shakes - and that's all I've got. I need to look for the garlic and herb cashews, I don't think I've seen them.

    So now that you've had their scramble, and made your own - who's do you prefer? I haven't tried their oatmeal, is it worth or go, or just make my own?

    Delicious day all the way around! I hope today and Saturday go quickly for you!

    1. Haha I know! Oooh good predictions, we'll have to see what I make ;) I need to get more cherries so I can start hoarding them in the freezer. I've been restraining myself because I want that smoothie every day! The garlic and herb cashews are AMAZING!

      Their scramble was excellent but I always prefer to make food myself because I know exactly how it is cooked. Their scramble was a bit greasy while I just use a little coconut oil spray to cook mine. The oatmeal is simple oatmeal cooked in water which is great because you can dress it up as you like. I think it is a great on the go breakfast option but it'll probably be cheaper to make your own if you have the time.

      Thanks! Me too! And I hope they go slowly for you!

    1. Aww thanks Caralyn! It sucks to have to work but it makes me feel less guilty about the small gifts I've bought myself this week ;) I'll share later! I am so with you, I love being greeted by beautiful, fresh produce when I open the fridge :)

      Thanks, you too! Hope you are feeling better!

  9. Mmm, love whole foods! I spent a lot of time there when I traveled to the states last year. I'm pretty sure they exist in Toronto though (I'm moving there in a year), which is good news! That pizza looks like exactly what I want right now. :)

    1. I love it because you can get anything you need there. It's also great because it is so hard to find meals to eat when you are out and about and I know I can always count on Whole Foods to have a good vegan meal I can eat on the go. I am lucky enough to be in an area where we have quite a few of them so it is usually a good option when i need a vegan meal when I'm out and about.

      The pizza was soooooooooo good!
