The Goods!

Who doesn't love a new food store?  My mother in law left me directions to two in their area this morning, so after I was (sort of) done with my paper, I headed over before I made the long drive home.  

First stop, David's Natural Market.  Much bigger that the natural food store I normally go to, near school, but mine has a bigger refrigerated/frozen section.  I was VERY excited to find some new high protein/low sugar cereal.  I also got some organic Mori-Nu, which was on sale (score!), some more Primal Strips, and some deliiiiicious little brownie bites (see picture below).  They are beyond awesome, I can't even tell you.  

yum yum yum yum yum
120 calories, 2 g protein 

90 calories and 12g of protein!!  

Next stop, Ann's House of Nuts, a bulk nut outlet.  I got two bags of raw cashews for about $3 apiece, and three bags of soynuts which were $1 apiece!  I also threw in a little container of dried tomatoes at the checkout (have to love a place where tomatoes are your impulse buy).  


The best stuffed turkey I've seen 
(although he didn't want to look at the camera).

I love places like this, it totally made my day!  Hopefully I'll have something to cook tomorrow.  
No cooking song today, since I didn't cook.  In fact, for all the driving I did, I listened to very little music.  I know I've mentioned it before, but I am still addicted to Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's podcast, Vegetarian Food For Thought.  If you don't listen to it, you should!  It is really fantastic, her words are really moving, and she is such a calm voice, it is so nice to listen to her.  Anyway, I still have a year left to catch up on, but I am a little podcast-ed out right now.  Cooking song to return tomorrow!  


  1. ooh! i love food stores! how sweet of your MIL to leave you directions to two!
    ooh - what are primal strips?

  2. Primal strips are a vegan jerky. I talked about them and linked to them in the post before this one if you want to check out the website! I like the seitan ones, but they also make them in soy and mushroom.
