Interesting Grocery Finds

Cameron is finally back and I am so happy! And not just because I’ll be able to sleep tonight 😉

I spent some time this morning studying for a quiz I have tomorrow, followed by alternating between napping and reading Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness until Cameron got home around 2:00pm.

After that, I fixed myself some lunch. Nothing exciting, just a salad again. In my defense, we hadn’t been grocery shopping in a week and I was running out of food :p


Since I hadn’t gone further than the living room all day, I figured that after lunch I should hit the gym. My FitBit is also a really great motivator; seeing that I had gotten less than 500 steps by 2:00pm, when it’s recommended to get 10,000 a day, I knew it was time to get moving. Since I had just finished eating, I decided to keep it light by working out on the elliptical.

This time, I did the Yosemite Hike course for 30 minutes. I kept the level between a 12 and a 14 and burned about 400 calories.


Cameron and I went grocery shopping when I got back from the gym and picked up a lot! We bought:

  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Avocados
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Whole wheat bread
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Chobani
  • Mac and cheese
  • Frozen pretzels
  • Organic peanut butter
  • Sugar
  • Progresso soup
  • Popcorn

Along with some interesting finds!

Flax milk


 Snapea Crisps

Which I plan to substitute for croutons this week


And edamame hummus!

A Kashi Greek Tzatziki pizza! It was a little heavy on the artichoke, but the creamy tzatziki flavor made up for it. I enjoyed the pizza with a glass of unsweetened vanilla almond milk that I tried to sweeten up with organic vanilla extract, which I do not recommend! It did not taste good.


I also finished off the Mrs. Thinster cookie thins with my milk.

Time to spend the rest of the evening vegging out. New episode of The Walking Dead tonight!

  1. I remember seeing flax milk in Whole Foods in London & was very curious- how would you compare it to almond milk in terms of taste and creaminess? Well done on the spontaneous workout :)!

      Thank you! I would say it’s less creamy than almond milk, but definitely sweeter. I think it’s more similar to Very Vanilla soy milk, if you’ve ever had that. I’d say it’s worth a try! 🙂
