Aloha!! Haha I have no idea why Aloha, but it just sounds so refreshing! I went on a field trip to Whole Foods to stock up on my usuals as well as some newbie products! :D
It's actually a field trip to WF for me, not only because it's so fun as I always find myself saying "oohhhh ahhhh" at the sight of every new product, but because it's also at least 30 minutes away. :P
I rarely shop at WF; hence, the excitement of being there.
Some of you guys may have already seen Megan's post about the Perfect Food Bar. Let me tell you, I was so expectant of that bar and indeed it met my expectations! Thanks Meg!
Haha, it's just so wholesome, perfectly sweet, and it reminds me of something from childhood in Argentina...but I can't quite put my finger as to what it was.
From Whole Foods:
- Perfect Food Bars--4 different flavors (They also have a pretty cool story!)
- Rudi's English muffins <-- These are my fave English muffins ever! Yes they're low in calories. And yes they're also made with great ingredients.
- Vanilla bean powder! A bit on the pricey side; however, there is a lot of it in one container and a little pinch goes a long way. :D
- Some produce. I don't usually buy a lot of it at WF due to the prices.
- Cedar's Tzatziki <-- Another fave dip of mine. Have you tried Tzatziki? If not, I highly recommend it!
- Some lemon cookies for the fam and Snackimals for Daniel
- Boca Burgers & smoked salmon
I am looking forward to using this cool ingredient in the days to come! Hello, serial baking and crazy breakfasts!
For no apparent reason, I felt a bit funny about showing you the grocery I purchased, but then I thought that you MAY just be interested in the foods that keep me healthy and energized. Not to mention, these are some of the things that keep my stomach regulated.
That's why I also got this at the WF bar. 'Twas so delicious! Especially the 'shrooms. :)
Okay, so going back to Perfect Foods Bars...how in the world are they so delicious?! Uh-oh, I think I may just have to find a way to make them on my own before an addiction kicks in haha! If you've tried them, any ideas?
Worry not! This isn't everything I eat, but only a small portion of it. At least once a day I'll be eating the Korean food my momma makes. I wouldn't want you to think that I barely eat and do the "comparison game" that's been the great talk in the blogosphere lately.
I simply mention this because many people around me think that I'm always "fasting" or not eating well. However, I try to let everyone understand that I am perfectly fine, and that this is just a simple choice I make for my own reasons. It keeps my indigestion and *ahem* constipation regulated.
We are all made physically different and are lovely in our very own ways! So we should eat, exercise, sleep, and so forth, according to our individual needs. So let us love ourselves for who we are, and let us love others for who THEY are! :P
And with that pep note in mind, I'd like to leave you with this...
"Contrary to what the world claims, Beauty does not diminish with time; Beauty deepens and increases...true beauty comes from a depth of soul that can only be attained through living many years well." -Stasi Eldrege from Captivating-
I admit, it's not always easy seeing myself through God's eyes. I don't always feel adequate or beautiful.
Your turn! How have you been doing in that area as of late? If you don't mind sharing. :)
As you get older, do you find yourself becoming more comfortable in your own skin, as well as in your gifts & talents?
You are so so so loved,
