Posts Tagged ‘Whole Foods’

On the way to my usual Friday shopping trip to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, I had some diet Pepsi and a cherry pie Lara Bar.  Lara Bars take a few bites to get used to. It was full of cherries which I liked and took a while to eat so that was good for pacing myself.


I love going to Whole Foods, because they have the awesome book called The Whole Deal full of coupons.  I try to stick to the book when shopping and I get to try a bunch of new things for cheap!  I got a salad from the salad bar at Whole Foods and could not wait to dig in!


Filled with lettuce, kale, peppers, sweet and sour tofu, feta cheese, grilled chicken, grilled tofu…etc. It was so good!

Oh and the best part of today: COUNTRY CHOICE COUPONS!

I e-mailed Country Choice to get some information to share with my readers about their products.  I was sent 3 coupons for some products to review. I’m super stoked and will hunt for these items on next Friday’s shopping trip!


Thanks John DePaolis and the Country Choice team members! Can’t wait to review your products! I love organic products and am stoked to try new ones!

Tonight, we are figuring out dinner plans. The husband requested a date night with me so I’m excited about that! Love him!

Friday funday

I got my hair colored all over today, not just halo highlights like the usual.  It is darker for the fall and I love it.  I went to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s and got some good deals.  They have this coupon flyer called “The Whole Deal” and it has lots of good coupons in it.  I have fun new things to try! I really stuck to the coupons, because Whole Foods can get pricey if you don’t watch it. 

We went to Kanki Japanese Steakhouse where they had a steak special for $9.99 and its usually at least $16.  It was delicious.  We then walked around the mall a bit and went to Barnes and Noble. I didn’t have my eye on anything, but the husband got the new Dan Brown book.  We both got something from Starbucks.  I got a skinny pumpkin spice latte meaning fat free milk and no whipped topping.  I didn’t even miss it.  Why not cut calories where you can?  I need to do this more!!


The loot from Whole Foods.


This is a cute funny from last Sunday’s paper that is staying on my fridge.  Something to keep in mind when going for something to eat!


Zoey decided to sit by the tub while I put up laundry.  She is just too cute!


I made some peanut butter cookies.  I substituted white wheat flour for regular while, light butter for regular, organic brown sugar for dark brown sugar…

They are delicious!  Here is the original recipe that I modified: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1924647


I got impatient for dinner so I didn’t let them cool enough and a few cracked. Oh well, still delicious!

Before: I just woke up, sorry the pic is a little blurry!DSC_0117DSC_0135

This is after.  I was hot and put my hair up.  It is definately darker, but I really like it!  I am off to watch tv/fall asleep while doing so. 

Tomorrow is supposed to rain during the football game.  I really do not want to do anything tomorrow, but sleep.  Oh well, I’ll make it.

Excited to try new food items! Have a good night!
