i did it. i did an (almost) complete grocery trip at the local whole foods market. i got everything i need for the next week minus propel, diet coke with splenda and cool whip, which i had to get at price chopper. okay, so my price chopper items aren't exactly healthful, but you've got to give a girl some credit. i bought EVERYTHING else, from coffee to bread to onions, at whole foods. and i made sure it was all organic and free of antibiotics and all kinds of other crap that i've been consuming through my foods for too long. i was a bit overwhelmed at first. and so, i spent an hour and a half shopping instead of my typical 45-minute breeze through price chopper grocery session. but i wanted to take it all in while shopping for the best price and eating every single sample. can i just say that whole foods is totally worth it if for nothing else but the samples. i had truffle pate, four kinds of cheese, banana cream pie, salmon salad, tea, coffee and hummus. i think i gained five pounds from just sampling. and to top everything else off, i only spent $13 more than i do at price chopper. yes! i leave you with this photo. alarming? maybe. making a good point? yes. am i a total hypocrite sometimes with my cool whip and propel "energy" waters? yes. but who isn't, seriously?
