Guess Where I Went Today

We live in the boonies. Country life is great but leaves something to be desired in the shopping department, especially with food. Today we drove 1 hour and 15 minutes to the Whole Foods that is closest to us. It was like a food wonderland. I had visited another Whole Foods in the past that was smaller and different offer as much variety. The main purpose of this visit was to purchase some gluten-free products to get me through the next couple of weeks for my 2-3 week trail. I was happy to find tortillas, pizza crust and loaf of bread along with some munchies. On the way back home we got to stop at Barnes and Noble (one of my favorite places on earth) and do some book shopping. Scott got three books about herbs and their uses and I picked out to art books for Grace plus a magazine about the new Hunger Games movie. Our last stop was to an educational store, but didn't really find much that I needed. It was a great date day for me and hubby because we went by ourselves. Something that rarely happens.

Sounds just like a day I would enjoy. I love Whole Foods but there isn't one near me!

We are lucky in that most of our supermarkets carry quite a good range of gluten free, dairy free etc including their own ranges. Looks like you have a good haul there, enjoy xxx

I've found that Ingles has almost all of those items. Walmart is a no go on the organic, gluten-free, vegan shopping. After eating vegan for 2 full months now, my ankles and feet don't swell. We're using raw sugar, agave nectar, and maple syrup.

Sigh.....I love Whole Foods, but I don't love their prices. Unfortunately, there isn't one even close to me. Happy to see you found so many GF foods. How handy is that!
