Yum & Mmmmm!

Today has been filled with so many of my favorite foods! I love days like this– my mouth and mind have been continuously satisfied and happy! :mrgreen: Dinner looks like it’s going to be delicious, too! 

Afternoon Snack

During my errands this afternoon, which included shopping for some new clothing for work, dropping-off dry cleaning, picking-up a prescription, and purchasing a video game for Mal (I’m such an enabler!), I popped into Whole Foods for a leisurely stroll around the store. I loooovvve visiting WF by myself! I can take as long as I want to peruse the isles, look for new products, and examine nutrition labels. I’m not going to lie, I really look forward to visiting Whole Foods when I have the time to browse! 

In addition to a few groceries, I purchased some yogurt-covered almonds to tie me over until dinner.


Lunch was a Greek yogurt mish-mash of goodness. I started with a container of vanilla-flavored Chobani, which I poured into a bowl, and then added the following goodies to it: 

…a crumbled-up Honest Foods Cran Lemon Zest granola square

as well as banana slices and wheat berries.

The mushy mess was delightful, zesty, and filling! Loved it! 😀

With ice water and an Adora disk… 

Mal’s Snack 

Mr. Mal wanted to share his post-workout snack with all of you. (I think he was especially proud of the smoothie he created with the Vita Mix Blender!) 

In the mix:

  • YouShake chocolate protein powder (Breakfast Shake)
  • Chocolate soy milk
  • Frozen mixed berries
  • Ice 
Mal said that his chocolate-berry concoction was the perfect way to refuel after a tough workout! 


  1. I know exactly what you mean. If I’ve had a long week or an accomplishment, I reward myself with a solo trip to Whole Foods, so that I can peruse and sample for as long as I want!

  2. Going to WFs by yourself is like therapy – it’s sooooo nice! Love your Chobs combo and Mal’s smoothie sounds yummy 🙂

  3. I totally feel ya on the solo WF trips- I feel like whenever I go with other people, they always get annoyed at how long I take, comparing the flavors, prices, and nutritionals on everything haha.

  4. I’m SO glad I have my license because my mom would get so annoyed at me in WF. I would (and still do) take hours just to walk around the store and gawk haha.

    I wish my lunch looked like that. I have a certain veggies for lunch rule that needs to be broken!

  5. I have to try a chocolate-berry shake sometime, that sounds delish!

    We don’t have a Whole Foods where I am, but I definitely prefer grocery shopping by myself. I make sure I go on afternoons when I can take my time, peruse and read all the labels. I love it!

  6. I love grocery shopping, period. But put me in Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s and I feel like I’m in heaven. It’s so inspiring and relaxing 🙂

  7. Hi Tina
    I saw your blender in the shop the other day here in South Africa and almost had a heart attack when I saw the price! $1000! I’m sure you must have paid less, how much do they cost over there? And what makes it better than the others?

  8. @Dee: They’re pretty expensive here in the US, too, but the company sent me one to try for free. It’s an awesome blender! It’s super powerful and can make just about ANYTHING!
