Oh Man

I ran to Whole Foods and Trader Joes today. I love living in an area where not only do we have both of these stores but they are across the street from each other. It makes shopping so easy. 

While at Trader Joes today I found these guys  

Say what!!!!

Gluten-free Joe Joes. Oh Trader Joes you slay me. 

I’m going to be completely honest here. They are anywhere nearly as tasty as the real deal but still pretty good. It’s actually a good thing that they aren’t as tasty as the real deal because I’d have eaten the whole box already. Luckily, I’ve been able to control myself. 

I love that more and more stores and restaurants are accommodating the needs of gluten-free people. It definitely makes eating out and grocery shopping a whole lot easier. 

I’ve been a big fan of the Whole Foods sandwich bread but today I picked up Trader Joes version and I can’t wait to compare the two to see which I like better. I’ll let you know after I’ve tried it a few times. 

Good Day

Today was a filled day. I had to dog walk, run some errands, and make a stop at Whole Foods and Trader Joes. 

I picked up more almond butter, which let me tell you I love fresh ground almond butter it’s so good. I eat it with fruit and celery. I make sure not to eat it every day because well a girl could seriously get addicted to that stuff. Along with the almond butter it was time to purchase more honey as now that I’ve finished my Whole 30 I will be introducing foods again and I will be using honey and maple syrup as my primary sweeteners when I do make sweet treats. Which of course will not be very often as sweets are my downfall. The other item I stocked up on at Whole Foods are Bilinski’s chicken sausages. OMG I can’t even begin to tell you how good they are. I eat them occasionally for breakfast, lunch, dinner, any meal they are perfect. They are completely Whole 30 compliant, well some of the flavors are others aren’t. So, when I saw them in the case again I stocked up. I have other chicken sausages that are great but have added items that aren’t allowed on the Whole 30, so when I’m doing Whole 30 or a Whole 7 or with this reintroduction phase 2 days on 1 day of reintroduction I need compliant sausage. So I scooped up a bunch and now I have a stocked freezer, along with other chicken and turkey sausages that aren’t compliant as in they have some added sugar and or cheese. 

After Whole Foods I ran into Trader Joes and picked up some unsweetened shredded coconut, turkey burgers which were on sale and so again I stocked up. I also picked up another package of their chicken chili lime burgers, which are the BOMB!!!

I love eating this way. I definitely think that I’m in a much better mindset than after my first round and am definitely determined to keep eating this way. 

Tomorrow I’ll be trying cheese, here’s hoping its a go as I love cheese. So hmmmm maybe it’s better if its not that great for me. 

Happy Friday!
