Ok, so I’m down for trying new things especially if they are healthy. I made a trip to Whole Paycheck I mean foods:). I went to the  Whole Foods Sacramento store. I was in town for a family event.Wow ,I love this store. So much more variety than the San Ramon one. I decided to try Lighten up 3 Grain Tempeh. Ewe ! Yuck that was gross. I cooked according to directions. I’ll stick to tofu. I love tofu. I’m trying a few other things. Amazing Grass’s Amazing Meal. It has protein, fruits and vegetables.  You can mix with water milk or juice. I’ll probably try milk . I don’t drink juice. I’ve never been a fan. I really don’t like sweet stuff  except for chocolate . I think it will be good for a snack. I’ll keep you posted. I didn’t buy the big bottle just single packs. My daughter liked the fruit and veggie section.We left with bananas, golden raspberries and  Barbara’s peanut butter cereal. It was time to go when she hit the cheese department. Mom I hate this part! It stinks. What are your new food finds?

20110525-035707.jpgI like to try new foods. I get bored easily. So I often visit grocery stores out of my area when I can. It may be the same type of food but a new brand. It can taste different. Today I went to Whole Foods. I know whole paycheck. I couldn’t shop here on a regular basis but its nice to once in a while. I live in California and the stores are nice but not as nice as the ones in Vegas. I’ve been a little spoiled. Siggi’s yogurt is absolutely the best! It was on sale today. It’s not greek yogurt but taste even better . Its Icelandic yogurt. The orange ginger has  tiny bits of fresh ginger. MMM! I haven’t tried the kale chips but they look interesting. I love the cheese samples. My daughter won’t go near that department. She says it smells like a thousand stinky feet. She was in school. No problem for me. You can eat lunch there, so I had brown rice spicy salmon sushi.  All in all it was a  fun trip. Now off to try tilapia with fresh fennel for dinner.
