Stocking Up the Fridge

First off, thanks to everyone for you sympathy on my credit card number getting stolen.  Luckily, everything worked out with the bank and my new card should arrive in 2 weeks.  It honestly ended up being a pretty hilarious situation (a friend texted me yesterday – “How did that Foreign Dating Escort Service work out for you?  I’m thinking of trying it myself…”), and it’s quite a eye-opener to see where I’m spending all my money, given that I have to use cash for the next 2 weeks.  There’s a lesson in everything…

I also want to thank everyone for you comments on my Positive Affirmations post from yesterday.  It sounds like we all have fantastic goals to motivate us!  I highly recommend trying affirmations for yourself and sticking to them.  You’ll be amazed by how much you can empower yourself and mentally change negatives into positives just by repeating them every day!


My Saturday has been pretty typical so far.  It’s a beautiful Spring day and I’ve been enjoying the outdoors as much as possible between schoolwork, grocery shopping, and the usual weekend catch-up tasks.

I made 2 grocery shopping trips this afternoon – one to a local grocery store and then to Whole Foods.

Local Grocery Store:


  • Organic Spinach
  • Organic Baby Romaine
  • Organic Kiwis
  • Organic Oranges
  • Organic Bananas
  • Organic Mango


  • Smartwater
  • Klarbrunn Black Cherry Sparkling Water
  • Fage 0% Yogurt
  • Activia Light Peach


I was incredibly successful at Whole Foods, and since I hadn’t been there in a couple of weeks, I stocked up:


  • Doctor Kracker Pumpkin Seed Cheddar
  • Doctor Kracker Seedlander
  • Organic Unsweetened Soymilk
  • Organic Dates
  • Nature’s Path Optimum Banana Almond
  • Blue Diamond Unsweetened Original Almond Milk


  • Organic Sugar Snap Peas
  • Organic Baby Carrots
  • Organic Seedless Cucumber
  • Organic Valley Large Brown Eggs
  • Wild wood Super Firm Tofu
  • Organic Jewel Sweet Potato/Yam
  • Organic Garnet Sweet Potato/Yam


  • Organic Mangos
  • Organic Nectarines (first of the season!!!)
  • Organic Golden Delicious Apples
  • Organic Granny Smith Apples
  • Siggi’s Yogurt
  • Stoneyfield Plain 0% Yogurt
  • Fage 2% Yogurt
  • Eros Plain Yogurt

I’m definitely feeling a fruit salad in the near future. :D  One of the best parts of Spring is the awesome produce variety that starts to appear!  I can’t wait until the selection gets even more diverse this summer.

After I got back from getting groceries, I headed out for a 4-mile walk sans jacket.  Definitely loving the 50*F sunny weather today!

When I got back to my apartment, I grabbed the Crab Meat California Roll sushi I had bought at Whole Foods when I went shopping.



With a glass of unsweetened almond milk.



I have some Stats schoolwork to do tonight, then I plan on doing a yoga podcast before calling it a night. 

Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend! 🙂

  1. You like your fruit and yogurt 😉

    I’m totally a FAGE person too! I wanted to get some Siggi’s, but they were all expired 😦 Maybe next week!

    Have fun doing homework tonight!

  2. Hi Heather, delicious looking eats! I was wondering if you could re-post your list of book recommendations that you used to have on your site. I read the Power of Now (loved it!) and a couple of others you suggested, but I can’t find the list anymore. Thanks so much!

    • I actually deleted my “Favorites” page when I restarted my blog since a lot of the food and drinks had changed, and I’ve read quite a few amazing books since then. I’ve been meaning to get another one up, so I will make sure I do so in the next day or two. Keep an eye out and I’ll put it in my post as well when it’s up!

    • Ok, I just created a new “Favorites” page! You asked nicely… 🙂

  3. Love all of that fresh fruit! Yummm!

    Stats and yoga for me tonight, too…. AND sushi tomorrow night 😉

  4. All your food looks delicious… so much fruit 🙂 I wish i had a whole foods near me!

  5. So many yummy fruits and veggies! You sure know how to eat. 🙂 I’m curious, do you buy mostly organic produce?
