Good evening!

For lunch, I met up with my friend Nicole, of Another One Bites the Crust!  We were besties throughout much of our childhood and have kept in touch over the years.  Over hot bar deliciousness, we reminisced about the year we only ate salami and the rest of the years, in which we only ate McDonald’s.  Needless to say, we were not the healthiest of kids!  I credit Nicole with introducing me to the blog world, as hers was the first I ever read, and also encouraging me to start my own!

We met up at the new Whole Foods in Milford.  She had already been, but I was still dying to scout out the area’s newest location.  My lunchers:

Romaine, ginger carrots, beets, ginger soy tofu, dried cranberries, roasted cauliflower, hummus mountain

‘Twas delish – especially the ginger carrots and beets.  Mmm, I love beets in a salad bar salad!  Such an underrated veggie.

Overall, this Whole Foods was pretty disappointing.  It was really small and crowded.  I STILL couldn’t find the Stonyfield Pumpkin Pie yogurt, and the wall of bars was super low.  After the Glastonbury Whole Foods experiences (aka BEST.EVER.), this was only more disappointing with such greatness to compare it to.  Glastonbury has all the Larabar flavors.  Milford had maybe 8?  And we both really wanted the PB&J, but it was nowhere to be found :(.  I guess I’ll just have to make a stop on the way back to school next week …

I did come away with some goodies:

Truvia, a Luna Chocolate Peppermint bar, a Peanut Butter ZBar, and Siggi’s Icelandic Skyr in plain, blueberry, and orange ginger

I’ve seen the skyr on a couple other blogs and knew I had to try it – especially since it was 3 for $6!  This is the least I’ve EVER spent at Whole Foods ($11ish)  but the Truvia was half off!  Yay sales.

When I got home, I needed a snack.  A peanut buttery snack …

Nicole made me muffins!  Quinoa, raisin, and peanut butter muffins!  They’re so good!  I heated this little one up in the microwave for 30 seconds, which I’m sure only increased its deliciousness.  Perfectly peanut buttery, with a fun gritty texture from the quinoa, and who can resist raisins and pb?  It reminded me of a breakfast my mom and I always used to have when I was younger – an Entenmann’s bran muffin, split in half and slathered in peanut butter.  Best combo ever!  I wasn’t sure this little muffin could hold me over til dinner (I was pretty hungry), but it’s 4 hours later and I’m just getting ready for dinner.  That being said …
