I tried to scope out the hot bar before I began loading up my plate. Otherwise, I end up with WAY too much food.
My final selections:
I started off with a side salad, and then I added brown rice and tofu.
And yucca fries (which were amazing and I really need to make these at home ASAP!):
After eating, we toured the store, and I tried really hard not to buy EVERYTHING. :) After all, I was really there for just one item: protein powder!
There are SO many options for protein powder. I was a little overwhelmed.
Thanks for all your recommendations on non-whey protein powders! I definitely pulled out my iPhone to look up each product you recommended. :) It helped the wall look less intimidating. Although I was intrigued by the egg white protein, Iâ€™m trying to cut back on animal products and decided to go with Jarrow Brown Rice Protein.
The nutritionals look great, and the price was right!
I am excited to mix this into a Green Monster! Yum.
Other fun Whole Foods purchases:
- Coconut Milk ice cream
- Nasoya Extra Firm Tofu
- Israeli Cous Cous (from the bulk bins)
- ProBar (a meal replacement bar that I plan to eat during Sundayâ€™s Metric Century)
- Justinâ€™s Almond Butter (totally worth the $$$)
On the way home, I ate a vegan chocolate chip cookieâ€¦ I started off with half and then slowly worked my way through the entire cookie. 🙂
I have an exciting weekend planned! Iâ€™m doing an 8K on Saturday and a Metric Century on Sunday. Wahoo! Canâ€™t wait to write those race recaps.
Got any fun weekend plans?
