Sometimes Whole Foods Makes Me Hate Myself

Whole Foods is 1 of 2 grocery stores convenient to my house. I don’t usually opt to go there as a first choice because it is more expensive for most items, but there are times it’s a must. I’ll need something in particular, only sold there, so I might as well just pick up a few things while I’m at it.

The other day it was cacao nibs. Not sold at my local grocer, so I hopped over to Whole Foods and picked up a few impulse buys (and a few other legit items that were *actually* on my list) and walked out $50 poorer, with only ONE bag full of groceries, and feeling like a walking cliche as I hopped into my Subaru.

    Dude. I wore flannel & birkenstocks to work yesterday, then walked to REI at lunch.

    Had I stopped at Whole Foods, I would have just offed myself right there.

    The honey from WF is so good though, and a relatively good deal.

    Ha!! I know what you mean. That is so me at Whole Foods, too. Suddenly all the prices take on a weird context where everything makes perfect sense. Of course I should pay $5 each for a jar of Bubbies pickles and Bubbies relish!! I love them so! They’re probiotic! 😀 Then I manage to mow through them both inside of a week.

    On a nearly completely unrelated note, what do you do with your cacao nibs? I bought mine with one or two ideas in mind a few months ago and now I have a giant bag and nothing to do with them… halp! :)
    also, I absolutely get sucked into the vortex that is whole foods– I can’t help it!

      I actually used them in a version of the Paleo Chocolate Chip cookies that I posted just the other day. I wanted to see how different they would taste than dark chocolate. They were pretty good with the cacao nibs. Not great, but ok. I’m glad I tried it, at least.

    We don’t have a Whole Foods near us, so I don’t regularly shop there, but I will say that there are some things that their prices are cheaper on. For example, their organic apples are $1 a pound cheaper than the price at our closest grocery store. But all stores are like that — cheaper on some things and more expensive on others. They know most people don’t want to hop around to 5 stores to get all their grocery shopping done.

    Carrots: $1.99
    Honey: $5.99
    Whatever salad dressing that is: $3.99
    Sauerkraut: $4.29 (dont ask me about the .29)
    Chard: $1.99
    Coconut Milk Ice Cream: $5.99
    Sweet Potato Chips: $4.49

    I cant tell what that small plastic petri dish is but im guessing hummus: $2.79
    Cacao Nibs: $6.99
    Probiotic Supplement (ya 365 brand!): $7.99

      I think you did pretty well except that Almond Milk is $ 1.99 at Whole Foods, which is just about as cheap as it gets. And the petri dish (ha!) was green onion cream cheese. Nice work!

    Everytime I see or hear the word cacao I think of the Portlandia skit where that’s their safeword. :)

Welcome!
