Happy Wednesday! The week is flying by. We have a busy weekend at home seeing every possible person we could see. We hadn’t been home together since February because of all of our animals (of course now they’re in the freezer).
I decided this week to start a 21-Day Sugar Detox (affiliate link) before the madness of the holidays start. I am declaring on this blog that I am doing the detox so you all can hold me accountable. I also did it last year at this time. First treat made- 21 DSD almond butter cups. I think I can do this!!
I didn’t manage to get many pictures of anything but I did happen to have my first Trader Joe’s experience on Saturday and I wanted to share the goodness for What I ate Wednedsay. I had never been to Trader Joe’s and one opened in Syracuse earlier in the month……. I knew it was going to be busy but I wasn’t prepared for the craziness. My friend’s husband basically summed up the atmosphere with this sentence “People will ram their carts into your baby. All they care about is getting their nut butter.” LOL. So true. Alas the one product I really wanted to try which was the cookie butter was NOT IN STOCK. Arghh. Oh well, maybe it’s for the better. I would definitely shop there if I lived near one, but it didn’t compare to Wegmans. There was still a lot of name brand stuff that I wouldn’t be able to get there. I thought it was really small, but I probably just felt that way because it was so busy. Here’s what I did end up with after throwing a bunch of random stuff into my cart in order to get out of the craziness in as little time possible:
So happy to find these 3 ingredient dark chocolate mints. They are the perfect treat and have clean ingredients! Won’t be having these for another 21 days!
Looking forward to having this in my coffee!
Good deal on sardines! Make sure you look for wild caught.
This was a great deal for 3.99 considering the gluten free oats I buy at Tops are 6.99. I use these to make the gluten free chocolate chip granola bars in my cookbook! Did you miss my cookbook release last week?? It’s still available! Gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, whole food recipes!
Check it out!
