Goal Share - whole foods

One of my goals this year was to get back to eating healthy. Something I was very fond of just over a year ago, and have stopped caring about since being so involved in my business. Well, its taken me this long into the year to do it, but Im doing it. On our way back from Louisiana, we grocery shopped at Whole Foods. We dont usually b/c its pretty far away, over an hour from our house. But we enjoyed it so much, and it was so inspiring to come home and eat better, that we have decided to start shopping there more regularly.

We used to shop at Sun Harvest, a smaller healthier grocery store, but they dont carry some of the things I like to get. Only whole foods does. I feel like the extra drive and a few more pennies per item are worth my excitement about getting back to it. I need this. My body is telling me so.

So, one way to make your normal boring grocery trip exciting, is to take your camera along! On our way out we got yummy fresh fruit smoothies, which curved our hunger until dinner! Yay for whole foods!

And of course, I wore my favorite PPP shirt since there was a bit of a breeze in the air :)



Do you have any favorite whole food recipes you want to share? Leave it in the comments, Im sure everyone who reads would love to get some new ideas!

PEACE,
Laura

  3. I LOVE whole foods, I thought I lived far from one (I'm 40 minutes away). I would so shop there more often if it was on my way home. I try to find the healthier option at the local grocery store, but there are just somethings you can only get at whole foods.

  10. KALE CHIPS! So simple, d-lish and healthy. Take a whole head of organic kale and roughly chop up the leaves into "chip" size. Toss them in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, sea salt, and raw garlic. Spread them out on a cookie sheet and back at 375 for 10-15 minutes keeping a close eye on them so they dont burn. Crunchy, salty, healthy chips.
