Round 2, Whole30, Day 23

April 16, 2016

On Thursday, my first stop was Yoga, only to find out that I had looked at the schedule wrong, so I left. From there I went to…..


Whole Foods

Trader Joe’s

My Local Grocery Store



The Bank

The Gas Station

The Car Wash

The CPA’s office, twice

Mike’s office

I hadn’t had a Food Prep, Meal Planning and Grocery Shopping Day in a while, so I spent the entire day getting caught up….mostly on food.

Check out the variety of Sweet Potatoes that I bought at Whole Foods!

I also found a variety of Larabar’s… be eaten responsibly.



Here are a few of my favorites from Trader Joe’s that I stocked up on!



Can you believe the size of these berries that I found at Trader Joe’s?



I had plenty of Weekly Points left on Thursday, so I made healthy choices, but did not calculate any points.

I went to my meeting Friday morning, and was down 0.4 lbs. Considering everything that I ate on Tuesday, and the fact that I did a terrible job of exercising this week, I was satisfied with my weigh in.

This last week was crazy. We had a hard time getting caught up after our delayed flight Sunday night, then the rest of the week has seemed to have gone downhill.

I’ll explain more in my next post, but here are Thursday’s eats…


Orange Bell Peppers, Sweet Potato, Red Onion, Zucchini, 1/2 Chicken Apple Sausage topped with an Egg and Avocado and Kiwi and Strawberries.




A Larabar on the go and Black Coffee. This coffee shop is super close to Trader Joe’s and they are a local coffee company. Usually a trip to Trader Joe’s, also means a trip to the Roasterie.



Afternoon Meal

Chicken Salad full of celery, cucumbers and grapes.




My first attempt at grilling Portabella Mushrooms as buns for our Turkey Burgers, topped with Bacon, Tomato, Smashed Avocado and Red Onions. Yum! A variety of Sweet Potatoes on the side and roasted Brussels Sprouts.

    I think almost all of them have dates in them, and I know how you love a date! You’re probably right. Maybe keep keeping away from them.


  2. Hummmm, sounds like I should just keep keeping away from the Lara bars. I don’t need to add any more high point trigger foods in my life!!😬

    Matching toes. You’re a funny one, you are.

    Not all, but some of the Larabar’s are Whole30 approved because they are the ones that are only made with nuts and fruit. They’re pretty good too! Almost a trigger food, so I usually only buy one or two at a time. They are only recommended during Whole30 as an emergency….late meeting, running kids all over, delayed flight?? Since you are not supposed to snack during the Whole30, they suggest them as an emergency in between meals, but not be used as a treat/snack. I try to keep a couple on hand. They do give me a sweet tooth satisfaction. (Don’t tell anybody.)

    Not low in points. The ones that I have had are 8 Smartpoints and I wouldn’t call them filling for me.

    That is my Larabar update!

    I know, right? I don’t often go to so many places in one day, but I had some favorites that I needed to stock up on, so I just went for it! That was an exhausting day! lol

  5. ohh, and the strawberries are red all the way thru! They look yummy, and such a chic shopper, you are, to have mathcing toes and all! What’s the deal with lara bars – I’ve never had them – nutritious, low in points,filling, meal replacement, curb the sweet tooth??? ronda

  6. My Trader Joe’s is 30 min. away up busy I71. I go on the weekend and they are always out of the cauliflower rice and sometimes my frozen baby peas. Jungle Jim’s is an international food store (it’s huge) it’s only about 25 miles away off 275 so I only go there on weekends. I have a Krogers right next door to me so I end up there.
    They opened a place called Fresh Thyme Farmers Market and it sounds good but I haven’t made it there yet.
    Gee–wouldn’t it be nice to get all your groceries at one store–lol.
