A few weeks ago, I was delighted to receive a card from my aunt and uncle, congratulating me on my recent graduation. While the thoughtful card was a kind gesture in itself, I noticed this little gem tucked inside it:
Glorious! A Whole Foods gift card! My relatives know me well
People are always saying how expensive Whole Foods is, so I thought it would be fun to share with you what $50 will buy you at Whole
Paycheck Foods. I was a little prodigal with the money on my first trip, but I was far more practical for the second round. Observe:
- coconut butter. $10.99 My coconut butter stash ran out a few weeks ago, and I’ve had trouble finding it (not to mention stomaching the hefty price tag). I jumped at the chance to replenish my supply.
- organic chia seed. $15.99 This was a total impulse purchase. They didn’t have any chia seeds in the bulk section, so I sprang for this large bag without ever trying them before. I sure hope I like them.
- Nasoya firm tofu. $6.82 for 3 (I used a coupon) I am very particular about my tofu—it’s Nasoya or nothing for me. This should last me for the next 3-4 weeks.
- canned beans. $5.34 for 6 Yes, I admit it—I use canned beans. They’re convenient and still quite healthful because I buy the no-salt-added variety.
- hazelnuts (in the bag). $6.04 for 0.55 lb I don’t often have hazelnuts on hand, but I recently saw Katie’s recipe for homemade Nutella. Obviously, I have to try it.
- Vega Performance Protein $4.98 for 2 After I read how Allie raved about this protein powder the other day, I decided it was worth a taste test. Love that they sell these little sample packs for precisely this purpose!
- local eggs. $2.39 Latta’s Egg Ranch is located in Hillsborough, NC (about 40 miles from Raleigh), and it’s my preferred source for eggs. They’re always nice and fresh!
So that’s how I blew fifty bucks at Whole Foods. How would you spend a $50 gift card at Whole Foods (or another grocery store of choice)?
