Ready For The New Food Challenge

Today was grocery shopping day, as is every Saturday around here. I decided to take a little detour to Planet Organic while I was out, to pick up a couple things I’ve been meaning to try out. Since Katie is hosting her New Food Challenge, I figured now was the time! Here’s what hopped into my basket.

Green Cuisine 7 Grain Tempeh – local BC company!

food 3352

Kamut Flakes – a CCK favourite! I’m trying those out for breakfast tomorrow fo’ sho’!

I also got in the regular grocery shopping.

I totally scored a good price on the Almond Breeze at Planet Organic, and the peanut butter was on sale 2 for 1, so how could I not stock up? They finally had my Kaizen Natural Whey Protein Powder (vanilla) in stock too, so I was able to use my rain check coupon from the last time it was on sale and they were out. I was all about the deals today 😉

Lunch was some leftover pasta & veggies from Thursday night. Still awesome.

There was also some gym time this afternoon – 35 min on the elliptical, 15 min of upper body fun. There was a definite need for a shower & chocolate when I got home. Mini-eggs to the rescue!

You can add another handful of mini eggs to that to accurately depict what was consumed.

I then spent some time prepping some food to take over to my friend’s place tonight. We’re BBQ-ing dinner, and watching Game 2 of the Canucks-Blackhawks series. Yeah baby! Now I should get myself ready and wander on over there. Go Canucks Go!

    Tempeh and kamut are 2 of my favourites! Hope you like them, too!

    Looks like you had a very successful shopping trip!

    And yay to the extreme for kamut flakes! You definitely have to tell me what you think of them!!

    Tempeh is AWESOME! It even makes me want to consider giving up meat. Almost! lol 😉
