whole foods

yesterday afternoon i went to the whole foods market here in toronto. i really like it there, but it's ridiculously expensive and i always think it's going to be better than it is and have wonder products. i did get a couple of larabars, lunabars, and clif bars, but not too many.

i did get greek yogurt though! it's full fat which is pretty high calorie but extra delicious. i also, on a whim, got goat's milk yogurt. WARNING WARNING do not get this product. bleh! i love goat's cheese, but i don't want my yogurt to taste like goat's cheese! there was a also sample of some kind of spreadable milk cheese. holy moly, it was sweet and so delicious! i made a point not to check the brand because if i knew what it was there is a large chance i'd become obsessed with the cheese until purchasing it. maybe if i was hosting a fancy party or something.

i bought one portabella mushroom so i could try making a portabella mushroom burger for the first time. i also bought ezekiel hamburger buns. the mushroom burger was pretty good. i melted a babybel light cheese on top. when i'm alone i usually eat my burger bun separately from the burger so it feels like i am eating more, so that kind of defeats the purpose of the mushroom burger. i would try it again, but my one mushroom cost $1.32 and that's a little pricey for a mushroom.

exercise has been going really well. i am following my hunger cues and eating when hungry. last night i walked for three miles on the treadmill (while reading), and then did some sit ups and bum exercises on the floor mat. this morning i went for a 40-minute swim. all this exercise is making me hungry!

I have yet to try a portabella burger! I really want to, but I am not a HUGE mushroom fan!

It sounds like you are really rocking it!!!

And ew about the goats milk yogurt! I LOVE goat cheese, but you are right, not in my yogurt!!! You should have a wine and cheese party sometime!

I always mean to ask you what "bum exercises" you do? It's my only true problem spot and I can never seem to firm it up!!

WF is super-expensive on most items and actually pretty cheap on some of their hose brand products. The challenge is not getting engulfed and buying everything! Good luck with the mushroom burger! I love them :)

ew, I hate mushrooms!

Sometimes I'm so glad we don't have all these fancy stores here. I'd be too tempted to blow all my money and get all this bad for me stuff.

I love portabella mushroom burgers! I have to make buns this weekend so I can make burgers out of the mushrooms we bought this week...

I've never been to whole foods but I've heard it can be quite expensive. I also have a fresh market right down the street, which I believe is the same concept as whole foods, but haven't been there yet, either. One of these days...

Great job on the exercise. That's more than I've got in all week!

Wow - your exercising is going great! Is that signature new? So cute! hehe $1.32 for a mushroom is uncool... sigh, whole foods.

I love mushrooms but have never tried the shroom burger - sounds yummy!

I'm not a fan of goat cheese - tastes too musty to me - I simply cannot imagine that taste in a yogurt! Oy! If I keep that in mind today I should have an easy time not overeating! HAHA
