It turns out that there is a Trader Joe’s and a Whole Foods right next to each other. They are about a half hour away from me which means it won’t be a frequent stop but it’s nice to know they are there if I feel like the trip. I went to the Whole Foods with my aunt last week so this week I decided to check out Trader Joe’s on my own.
And of course I got myself some goodies!
In my trip, I came out with Ezekiel bread, a pack of organic bell peppers, organic eggs, organic gala apples, bananas, tofu, brown rice sushi, light string cheese (rBST free), light cream cheese, a yellow onion and a red onion. All for $29!! I thought that was a pretty good deal.
Speaking of prices, I’m under the opinion that Trader Joe’s has better prices but less selection while Whole Foods has worse prices but more selection. Does anyone else think TJ’s prices are better than WF? I don’t go to either very frequently so I’m not sure if that is an accurate assumption.
I used the tofu tonight to make stir fry. I cooked it up with some broccoli and orange bell pepper, coated it with a little teriyaki sauce and put it over brown rice. Yummy in my tummy.
Now it’s time to pack for this weekend. Tomorrow night my aunt and I are heading up to Mackinaw Island for a 10k on Saturday morning. It’s going to be so rough because I either haven’t had time to run or the weather has been crappy or I just couldn’t get my lazy butt out there for a run. Plus the weather is going to be pretty cold! Oh well, I’m sure it will still be fun
