The lifestyle reboot continues! On my way home from work today, I bought a blender at Target (no, I didn’t already have one) and then hit Trader Joe’s for some staples for my all-new way of life.

I have never before filled my cart with such healthy “real” foods, and I have never before enjoyed grocery shopping so much. Unbelievable. Normally I get so frustrated studying nutrition information and ingredient lists. I loathe shopping! Not so today. Here’s what I got:

Veggies*: Spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, edamame, beets, snow peas, avocados

Nuts: Walnut crumbles, almond slices, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, flax seeds

Fruit: Blueberries, apples, pears, bananas, peaches, kiwi, frozen mango, frozen berries

Cheese: Crumbled feta, fresh mozarrella

Misc: Puffins Cereal, milk, yogurt, apple juice

I’ve never looked into my shopping cart and been so happy. The only thing I regret (besides forgetting the chickpeas) is that I forgot my camera and didn’t get a picture. I also failed to take a picture of my first-ever smoothie (2 bananas, 4 apricots, apple juice, flax seeds). But then again, this isn’t supposed to be a food blog, so I’ll try not to overdo the pictures of salads.

*Yes, I know that technically some of those are fruits. :-P

  1. I already feel so much more energetic and healthy! I never thought I would love salads, but weirdly, I am. I just wish there were a local farmer's market where I could get regular fresh veggies and fruits.

  2. The Northridge Mall has a farmer's market every wednesday night from 5 to 9, I think, year round.

    Oh, and you'll be amazed at how much less your grocery runs will cost you. Veggies and fruits are definitely cheaper than processed foods!


  3. Alas, there's no way I could make it to Northridge by that time… and if I could, I'd be at kung fu! I really need to find a weekend farmer's market, or there's no hope. Luckily they're building a flagship Whole Foods on my block — I'll be healthy but broke!
