Good Finds

January 21, 2011 at 1:36 am 6 comments

When we were traveling and I would find something fun and delicious locally, I was always a little bummed out because I knew we wouldn’t be around forever to continue buying it! But now that we are settled in one spot, I am thrilled about all of my good finds.

This week while shopping at a health food store close to our house, I found:

  • Alpine Avocado Vinaigrette…this is officially my new favorite. Seriously. So delish. And made locally!
  • Spring rolls that rival the local Thai restaurant! So fresh and tasty…with a PICKLE inside! Who would’ve thought?
  • Nacho Mom’s Vegan Queso! Perfect for dipping chips or in a burrito. Love.
  • Whole wheat pie crust. I was just wanting to make some potato & kale quiche but didn’t want to make my own crust. Voila! So happy.

Happy weekend eating! πŸ™‚

    So, what i’ve learned from this post is: “Alpine Avocado” is an incredible product and company! I bought a bottle after reading Josh’s comment. Live raw and green!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
