*Have you entered my giveaway yet? It ends Friday so get on it!*
Although my post is titled “Terrific Tuesday,” it is in fact Wednesday. Trust me, I know this.
Yesterday (Tuesday) was one of the most relaxing days of my entire life.
- A few errands (new headphones, a 9 volt battery, a trip to the post office, and an oil change).
- Lunch and shopping at Whole Foods.
- A 90 minute massage.
- An awesome Skype with the one and only VeggieGirl.
- GLEE! Who watched last night? What did you think?
To me, that is like the perfect day. Be jealous.
I was also carded purchasing the original formula of GT’s Kombucha. In case you are unfamiliar with the story behind this phenomenon, I shall enlighten you.
If you can remember, GT’s Kombucha was pulled from Whole Foods and most health-food stores early last summer because of concerns that if the product wasn’t properly refrigerated, that once it left the manufacturing facility, the alcohol content would rise slightly above .5%.
At this point, a warning label is required and only people over the age of 21 can buy it.
To control the level of alcohol, Dave of GT’s Kombucha altered the original formula so that the amount of alcohol producing probiotics was reduced. In addition, the amount of non-alcohol producing probiotics was increased to compensate. Each bottle contains the same number of probiotics, just in a different ratio than before.
The “Enlightened” formula with a smoother taste and shorter shelf life.
Personally, I like the original formula a lot more. I can only buy it at my “hidden gem” in Birmingham, so I always buy a few when I’m there.
Hey, the Kombucha buzz is kinda cool
I think the highlight of the day was my Whole Foods loot…
- Organic, Rainforest Alliance certified bananas
- Organic baby spinach
- Organic (and local) sweet potatoes
- Organic (and local) tomatoes
- Organic grape tomatoes
- Organic baby carrots
- Organic potatoes (in the corner)
Montchevre In Blue is actually my all time favorite cheese.
Whole Foods hasn’t had it in quite awhile and I actually almost cried when I saw it yesterday. I don’t care for strong bleu cheese’s, but this one is really “grassy” and tangy. It’s one of those things that you either love or hate.
I happen to love it. Maybe a little too much…
I also picked up a new sheep’s milk cheese.
I had some last night on a grilled cheese and it is worth every penny. So good.
- Organic cottage cheese (I’m loving this lately. Salty foods are the bomb)
- Siggi’s Icelandic Yogurt (best yogurt ever)
- Millet bread (my all time favorite bread)
- Kombucha to drink with lunch
- Organic ketchup
- Organic potatoes
- Brussel sprouts
I also really like tofu.
I normally don’t buy pre-cooked tofu, but pressing and baking tofu can be such a hassle. This is much more convenient!
I’m also totally Gaga for this hummus. Whole Foods, you are amazing.
I also needed to buy some laundry detergent to wash my clothes.
I know that it’s time do laundry when I run out of running shirts. Please tell me I’m not the only one.
Speaking of running…
I think summer has officially started. It’s going to be a long and hot one!
Has summer hit your neck of the woods?
Within a few weeks, I’m going to have to start running at 5 AM again. Lately, I’ve been going at around 7:00, but it’s still pretty warm at this time and Iit’s only going to get warmer.
Oh boy… I can’t wait!
