Black Friday Shopping at Whole Foods

Every year readers and friends are always asking me what last minute recipes do I recommend for the Holidays and where can they buy quality food. I always turn them to Whole Foods!

Their website has a plethora of amazing recipes that are easy enough to create for the last-minute chef and non-chef! AND they also have amazing sales both before and after Thanksgiving!

Here is their Holiday guide which has amazing coupons, Holiday dining tips and more!

But what is really cool is that they also have AMAZING deals for Black Friday! I usually do not partake in the Black Friday shopping… I would rather be home in my comfy jammies drinking coffee! ❤ But I will say that I would go shopping at Whole Foods to buy some amazing foodie items and Holiday gifts! I was there a few weeks ago and they had the most precious Christmas display up already! A sleigh filled with A TON of stuffed animals and other unique toys for kids of all ages! SO CUTE!!!

Woah… that was a long time!

Well hello clean eaters!

I wasn’t expecting such a long disappearance! My computer was having a new hard drive replaced for the past few weeks. And for what ever reason I wasn’t able to effectively blog from my iPad. Does anyone know how this is done? This would be a great tool to use when I am traveling!

I have a lot of great content that I am eagerly wanting to share with you! This week will be me catch up week… product reviews, announcements and some new and fun projects!

I am also writing some guides that will help those that are wanting to lose weight, start eating clean and just live a better and more positive life. I am so excited to share with all of you!

Upon waiting for my computer to be back in my hands, I have been doing  a lot of recipe searching, especially on the Whole Foods website! They have so many easy and healthy recipes!

Here are some of my favorites in my latest Cooking with Whole Foods!


Red, White and Blue Fruit Salad


Mediterranean Veggie Burgers

Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Cilantro-Lime Dressing

A food blogger weekend!

What a busy weekend I had! Both Saturday and Sunday were PACKED with foodie events! And both days I had company from my best friend, Ashley. We used to work together last year and since we both moved careers we only see each other on occasion. It was really nice spending some time with her again!

We met at Whole Foods for some breakfast and coffee. I love their oatmeal bar and I picked out a package of chopped mango and strawberries.


After a glorious time catching up on life, we walked around a bit. They were having their Eggstravaganza Event which I was invited to. They featured some delicious egg recipes and dishes and had some great Easter displays! I am posting an Easter recipe post soon that will be showcasing some great Easter dishes!

I also picked up some things as we were walking around…


Coconut water, Lara Bars, Vega mix, Almonds, Hemp Hearts, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chips, Garbage Bags and some Odwalla Juice. I also picked up a dry brush. I have always wanted to dry brush – it’s great for circulation and eliminating toxins out of your body.


After my Whole Foods outing, Marc and I had a wonderful sushi lunch at a local sushi joint. We shared a delicious roll and I nibbled on a seaweed salad.


And a little soy fro-yo for dessert! Topped with coconut, mini chocolate chips and strawberries. 🙂


The weather had a sudden shift from the day before and it ended up being a gorgeous day! A drive to Seattle was much needed!


The night ended with some dart throwing, bud light drinking and some March Madness watching!



Today was VegFest! And man, did I get some great veg-tastic treats! Ashley and I spent a good hour walking around, filling our bellies with eats and treats!

There were a TON of people there! It was very difficult walking around and actually enjoying the festival. After about an hour I needed some coffee so we headed out and went to a local coffee place called Cafe Vita. I was familiar with it but never had been inside the shop. Nice and quiet after such an over packed festival!



I ordered an Americano. It was an excellent cup of coffee!


I ended up grabbing a pound to take home… French Press love!


It was a really nice day today, too! Not to cold… and it was really fun driving around the streets in her new Mini! I love Mini’s!

What a weekend! A lot of fun and very busy! But I do enjoy a good jam packed couple of days! Especially when it ends with a bag of goodies like this!


SOOO much good stuff!!! I will have a ton of product reviews coming up!!!

My day ended with some spoonfuls of this AMAZING stuff! Good night! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
