Today I was in the neighborhood of Whole Foods so I dropped in quickly to grab some cilantro for tonight’s dinner. It was apparent that the entire store was being completely re-arranged, so I thought I might as well take a quick spin through and check out the new layout. In the cereal aisle, I quickly noticed they had coupons for my favorite cereal so I grabbed a few boxes. Next to it, I noticed there was a “last chance” sale on Gluten Free cereal I’ve never tried before. Less than $2/box for GF cereal??? Craziness, so I grabbed three boxes.
Then I thought to myself, I wonder what else they might be clearing out? 30 minutes later I had the cart filled with GF shortbread cookies, and chocolate chip cookies, and oatmeal cookies, and gingerbread cookies, and another kind of chocolate cookie, and a brownie mix, and a cake mix….and three pizzas, among other goodies. Can you tell I was shopping hungry?
It does get old sometimes, watching everyone else enjoy treats that I can’t have, or that i have to pay $6/box for. For the most part, we try not to have junk in the house. Heck, the kids ate brussels sprouts and eggplant soup in the past week. But sometimes, you just need an oreo. Or in my case, a kinnikinic k-too. Yep, that’s what they’re called.
So in review, I went to Whole Food to get cilantro and spent $80 on Gluten-Free junk food.
In completely unrelated news, I was at the dentist yesterday and I do in fact have another cavity despite my meticulous oral hygiene regimen over the past 6 months. I can’t even begin to imagine why.
