WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?

I have a new neighbor. Well, to be honest it isn't really an entirely new neighbor, it is a neighbor that has moved into a new and better home.


I love Whole Foods, and I am loving that is is still five minutes from where I live and that it has doubled in size. 

We have a new shopping and dining center called the Summit at Fritz Farm. It is very upscale and Whole Foods opened there a couple of weeks ago. 

Salad anyone?


I haven't walked the shopping area yet, but I did want to check out Whole Foods as my cupboards were getting pretty bare. 

To be honest, I can't afford to do all of my shopping there, but I do love their selection of Kombucha teas.


There are a lot of pros and cons out there about Kombucha, but it really helps my digestion.

There are lots of baked goods. I generally pass those by as I am gluten free, but they looked delicious, and let's face it, who doesn't want to eat cake.


The fruits and vegetables looked wonderful, but for the most part I passed those up too, as I am trying to buy local over the summer.


I think I'm going to stop in tomorrow after physical therapy to try one of their smoothies for lunch.


What is Mochi premium ice cream? 


Apparently it is a confection made from Japanese mochi (pounded sticky rice) with an ice cream filling. Hmmmm!! Have you ever heard of it? Have you tried it?

I chickened out, but I know my curiosity is going to get the better of me soon. 

I am really looking forward to checking out more of the Summit, but it is soooo hot here right now that I haven't had the energy to walk outside. 

Soon though, and then I'll share it with you.

  1. We have a Whole Foods not far from Trader Joe's. I haven't been in there, as I assumed it was real expensive. But now that you've mentioned it, I think I shall at least go in and look around!

    1. I love it. They have their own 365 brand which is not expensive.

  2. I enjoy Whole Foods, when I am in the big city. I also love Trader Joe's and wish one was close to me.

  3. I haven't been to Whole Foods many times, they aren't near where I live. I do like Trader Joe's!

    1. I shop at both. Trader Joe's is less expensive , but the Whole Foods Brand is probaby close to the same price.

  5. Laura, will the "brick and mortar" Whole Foods stores stay open now that Amazon bought them? I was wondering that the other day.

    1. As far as I know they will stay the same. At least I hope so.

  6. Read that the Amazon deal will just bring more business online but stores stay open for local shopping. Laura, such a pretty storefront and so clean and nice inside. We travel 30 miles to Whole Foods when we plan on doing other things there as well. I would love to have such nice store open up close to me. Lucky you!

  7. So nice to have such a nice store so close to home! I'm gluten free, too...it's always nice to have more choices.

  8. Wow, lucky you!! I have never been inside a whole foods, the closest one is over an hour away. I love Trader Joe's, the prices are so much better than most organic markets, but again it's over an hour away.

  9. No Whole Foods here although I would love to visit one. Our closest one is about 2 hours from here...and so is Trader Joe's. How lucky to have one that close. Will be interested to see what the MOCHI tastes like! xo Diana

  10. Have just run into your site from a pinterest link and looking forward to reading other posts. We are in Boulder, Co...a mecca for healthful living. I love and appreciate this! There are three Whole foods near us, one of them gigantic, as well as Trader Joes, Vitamin Cottage, Sprouts and Lucky's Market, plus three Famers Markets. A general foodie atmosphere thrives here and there are many eateries that focus on fresh local ingredients. I am also Gluten free, mostly dairy free. Feel better eating very few grains. I am concerned about where Wole Foods will be sourcing now that Amazon is in charge. For instance, China sells a lot of "organic" food that is not really organic or even good quality.

  11. Neither of those stores exist here in my part of BC Canada. I buy much of my organic dried food from Organic Matters out of Nelson, BC. They are an excellent company with good prices but I don't think they ship to the US. They say on their website where every product comes from - I like to know this too!
