Whole Lotta Whole

So like I said yesterday, my second day in Minneapolis was full of fun stuff, but I saved one last stop to share today.

Whole Foods of course! This is my 2nd time there—so Trader Joe’s and WF’s all in one day—good food overload alert!

I actually didn’t buy any groceries because I got plenty at TJ’s, but I did pay a visit the the hot bar which always gets rave reviews. I picked a little of a lot of things!


I got some jimaca coleslaw which was marinated in vinegar and had a nice twang to it! I got some grilled pineapple—sweet and savory! Then some roasted fennel and carrots—love fennel! Some kind of cauliflower, marinated artichokes, and a tofu salad, which I am not a huge tofu fan, but it wasn’t bad. Do you have a WF’s hot bar fav?

By the way, I tried the TJ’s Mini Cinnamon Raisin Bagels and CIMG0354 they were awesome!! Not really mini, but the raisins were plump and chewy, and the cinnamon was definitely apparent. Plus they were super cheap—I should have bought 2 packages since they can be frozen.


Recently, I had been searching online for a new lunch bag for the upcoming college year. Since I won’t have a meal plan, I will be packing lunches to save on money.(And I wasn’t a fan of “cafeteria” food anyway) But before I bought one online and paid for shipping, etc. I decided to check stores around here. Luckily I found one I loved at Target! It looks like a purse instead of a standard lunch bag. Check it out—>



Nice, huh? Even better than the style? The price! Only $9.99! It fits everything nicely, so if you’re in the market for a new bag, head to Target in the camping/outdoors department.

Come back for a trip to the jungle tomorrow! ;-)
