It’s Official: I’m in Love…

…with this:

Murphy Goode

If I had to choose one wine to drink for the rest of my life (isn’t that a horrible thought?), this would be it.

If I could marry a bottle of wine….I’d marry this one (as long as it continuously refilled itself, that is).

I usually prefer reds, but one sip of this white was all it took.

No exaggeration, this is one of the best wines I’ve ever had. Please find it and buy it. I promise you’ll love it. And if you don’t, pack it up and send the rest to me. I’ll drink it straight from the box, and take pictures to prove it.

OK- enough of that. Let’s look at this:

Yogurt Mess

That, my friends, is my new breakfast of choice. I usually throw it together when I realize that I’ve been up for two hours, and haven’t had breakfast yet. Then, I scarf it down when I look at the clock, and realize I have ten minutes before I need to leave for work. Don’t ask me why I procrastinate. I just do.

Anyway, you’re staring at a huge yogurt mess, comprised of:

  • 3/4 cup Fage 0% Yogurt
  • 1 Sliced Banana
  • 1/2 Cup of Whole Foods Vanilla Almond Granola
  • ~Tsp of Toasted Wheat Germ
  • ~Tsp of Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
  • Approximately 7 Dark Chocolate Chips (for good measure)

Wonder in a bowl, if you ask me.

And, one more thing before I go:

Blueberry Pie

Four words: Whole.Foods.Blueberry.Pie.

That’s all.

Have a great Friday! <3

I’m Moving into Whole Foods

I’m the type of girl who can spend hours in a grocery store. Forget clothes shopping; food shopping is definitely my favorite.

So when my parents mentioned that they were going to Whole Paycheck Foods today, I jumped at the chance to tag along.

Almost fifty bucks later…

Whole Foods

OK- so the Skinny Girl Margarita isn’t from Whole Foods, but I got it today, too, and I’m excited about it. Has anyone tried it? I’ll let you know what I think when I do!

So here’s the list:

  • 5 Organic Sweet Peppers
  • 4 Organic Avocadoes
  • 2 Limes
  • 1 Red onion
  • 3 Organic golden delicious apples
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Walnut halves (bought in bulk)
  • Vanilla-almond granola (in bulk)
  • String Cheese
  • Creamy unsalted Peanut butter
  • Fage 0% (My love!)
  • Feta Cheese Crumbles
  • 12 Whole Wheat Mini Bagels
  • SPF 25 Lip Balm (Yesssss)
  • Tom’s All Natural Floss
  • Unpictured Tahitian Vanilla Gelato (eaten while shopping)

You would think that with a list that short, I’d be in and out in no time. Well, I don’t know about you guys, but I have this little problem where I need to stare at every single product in the store for unnecessarily long period of time. Luckily, my parents are the same way. We must have spent two hours shopping.

By the time we were done, we were hungry for dinner, so we stopped at one of our favorite restaurants on the way home: Cassie’s Coal Burning Brick Oven Pizza.

I wasn’t really in the mood for pizza (who am I?), so I ordered a salad instead:

Cassie's Menu

I went with Cassie’s Chopped Salad with honey balsamic dressing, instead of Italian:


I asked for the dressing on the side, and scooped a bunch of that feta off the top. I love feta, but that was wayyy too much for me. Cassie’s salads are always so delicious!

When the pizza came out, I decided it would be stupid to not have a piece. I mean, look at it!:


Try not to eat your computer screen, please.

When I got home, I put away all of my groceries, and then took them out again to take a picture. At first, I felt lazy, and seriously considered drawing a picture on paint instead. I decided that would take too long. Plus, it would have probably looked like this:

whole foods

And that’s just no good.

Dessert was a couple pieces of dark chocolate. In case you’re wondering (and I don’t know why you would be), I store all of my dark chocolate in the egg container in my fridge. Since I’ve moved home, I don’t actually buy eggs or bananas for myself anymore. I just steal them from my mom. :-)

How long do you spend in grocery stores?

What’s your favorite part of food shopping?

Have a great Sunday! <3
