Friday and Saturday of this past weekend was spent in Detroit with 2 of my best friends. So much fun! Tiree and I had Jack and Abigail with us and we did some shopping. We went to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods Market. A-M-A-Zing! Trader Joe's is a mostly inexpensive grocery store with no preservative foods. They have a lot of Organic also but mostly just all natural foods. I decided to buy some groceries and take them home. So Glad I did! Whole Foods Market is an Organic grocery store that was fantastic. It was huge inside and I could have spent hours there!! Anyways, here are a couple things I got that I am very happy about and wanted to share.
I have found a new love for Hummus. My hubby actually likes it too...double bonus! But this sucker is yummy and has like 5 ingredients in it. I have not found hummus around here without any preservatives. I put it on our chicken wraps with salsa yesterday. Delish!
Below the hummus is peanut butter. Now during my pregnancy I realized that I was craving this at the end. But I don't eat it anymore cause all the good tasting peanut butter has preservatives and hydrogenated oil (trans fat). I found this at Trader Joe's also and decided to give it a whirl. 3 ingredients and no oils, amazing! Seriously, why can't we do this here?! It takes just like the "normal" stuff I used to buy (Jiff) but I feel ok having some (it is high in fat naturally so I don't have too much!). Oh the goodness. These stores need to share the goodness around here. I will be making trips to get groceries in the future :)
