I Wanna Move into Wholefoods
Hey hey, for those of you just joining me, I am still in Houston but not for much longer
Yesterday saw me running around like crazy trying to get all my last minute pick ups before I head back to the Magic Kingdom and I cannot help feeling I may have overdone it?? What do you think?
Averie has got me convinced that I should start to learn how to make alot of these things myself, in the very least the bars like she talks about here, but I guess the reason I like having these convenience foods is for when on the run and for the lack of a better option (like a piece of fresh fruit). And I like to buy in bulk
When I headed out the door yesterday, I hit up Jamba Juice for a double wheatgrass shot (unpictured as I downed it in one!) and a Strawberry Whirl:
STRAWBERRIES, BANANAS, STRAWBERRY/APPLE JUICE & ICE
Not the best choice but a juice nonetheless….
But my GPS just couldn’t find it. Very disappointing as I was looking forward to trying out what they had to offer by way of raw vegan goodies.
So I hit up Wholefoods instead. You never have to ask me twice.
Other than supplies to head on home with I picked up some great new things to try that I have been dying to check out including:
And it tasted better than I thought! Just like a Ginger Beer, only a little more tart and slightly vinegary (pleasantly)
Here is the culture just before I accidentally DRANK it!
This is what is says on their website
What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is alternately known as a Chinese tea, a plant, or a mushroom. But it’s not really any of these. It’s a living culture of beneficial microorganisms, and in Kombucha’s case, the whole is infinitely greater than the sum of its parts! Our Kombucha is delicately cultured – some liken it to fermentation – for 30 days. During this period, essential nutrients form like active enzymes, viable probiotics, amino acids, antioxidants and polyphenols. All of these combine to create an elixir that immediately works with the body to restore balance and vitality. Kombucha has been used for hundreds of years throughout the world as a daily health tonic. The culture resembles a light brown, tough, gelatinous disk—and because it’s a living, growing entity, it can regenerate and create new cultures with every batch. In fact, GT’s Kombucha and Synergy are made from Kombucha cultures that are descendants of the original culture GT grew to create his first bottles
Then I walked back into my hotel room to THIS!
Weeeeeeeee! Ordered from these lovely peeps.
Look how shiny and new it looks! Yes I have one already well OK the boyf has one that I bought him for his birthday last year, but I use it way more than he does, but it was about time I bought myself a HERS! And the beauty is although the models are different, the jugs are interchangeable.
I was exhausted from a full day of shopping (I bought some other goodies that I’ll share with you laters)…so I plopped down in my hotel room to watch The Biggest Loser (my first episode in years) and nibbled on some:
Brown Rice Cucumber and Avocado Sushi (still loving the Brown Rice yeah!)
Grilled Portobello Rice Paper Rolls
A little later and I was feeling a bit peckish so I couldn’t resist these:
And I ate the entire packet! And almost the sachet to keep the chips dry! Haha
Then my sweet tooth kicked in so I just had to have this little beauty
The filling was the perfect mix of choc and mint reminiscent of an Arnott’s Mint Slice from my childhood days
and the crust complimented the filling with a slight salty taste.
I’m outta here to get some rest before my next flight. I’ll be back soon with some more goodies I’ve picked up!
