Here are some pictures from a Halloween party I went to last night:
Snooki from Jersey Shore
-Organic Steel cut oats (I ran out)
-Mary's Crackers (love them)
-Kardea bar in chai spice flavor (I have been wanting to try this bar forever)
-Some Ginger Granola from the bulk bins
-Tuscan White Bean Soup
-Packet of Almond butter
-Unsweetened Organic Rice Milk
Normally my grocery bag is 80% vegetables and fruits, and the rest is grains, beans, peas, hummus, and things like rice or almond milk. But I am not about to spend all that mula at whole foods when I can buy that stuff elsewhere for cheaper!!
I particularly bought the soup to make for dinner tonight since I knew I am going to go to the movies and wanted something fast and easy. Unfortunately, the soup tasted AWFUL and I was not about to settle on yucky soup for dinner. So I made a super quick and easy butternut squash soup with some pre-cut cubes I bought from trader joes. I followed this recipe, but only did half of it and used only enough water to cover the squash (I like my soups thicker). It was quick, easy and delicious!
Now, I am off to see The Social Network, I've hear good things about it! I'll let you all know how I liked it!
What do you normally buy at Whole Foods? How do you purchase healthy foods while staying on a budget?
Also, what is everyone doing for Halloween?! I want to hear what costumes you are all wearing!!
