I wish I had jumped on the smoothie bandwagon while VitaMix was being so generous with their blender giveaways. As you can see, my KitchenAid doesn’t make for very smooth smoothies. Oh, well, a chunky blend doesn’t seem so much like drinking my calories. Although it sure would be nice to blend up some silky smooth soups and grind my own flour.....
I’ve been grocery shopping, so I thought I would show you some of my purchases.
I got this huge local cauliflower at Whole Foods last week for $2. It’s sitting on a 10-inch dinner plate, which you can’t see. I got several good servings out of this thing!
These are locally made tortillas I also got from Whole Foods. They are fabulous and vegan. I only had a bite because they're made from flour and therefore not gluten free. My mom and son got to enjoy them.
These are my new favorite chips. If you want gluten free vegan crispy chips, I recommend them highly. Plus it’s fun to say Mr. Krispers.
Here’s the nutritionals if you’re interested.
I headed off to Whole Foods this morning, then turned around and headed to my awesome Asian supermarket. I hadn’t been there in a while and I’m glad I went because it’s always so fun to see what’s new and/or on special. Here’s what I got.
One thing I wanted to shop for was dried mushrooms – until I found these fresh ones. The shitakes were $2.30 and the enokis were $1.29. The daikon was 80 cents, snow peas $1.21, pears $1.49, kohlrabi $1.96, and peanut meal $1.59. The veggie bouillon is expensive but it’s the best in the world and I was completely out. I will be feasting on mushrooms tonight!
I got Chase some faux meat – pepper steak and chicken patties.
And I found some fruit chips! Katie blogged about fruit chips earlier this week and I was intrigued. These are not so healthy like the ones Katie got, but I bought them for Chase (he needs some fat).
The chips are obviously deep fried because they are very crispy. They are made from jackfruit, taro, pineapple, sweet potato, and banana. The jackfruit is really really good.
Now I’m off to make some seitan for Chase. I’ll probably deliver his Sunday dinner to him tomorrow. I’m not sure what I’ll make yet. I’m thinking about shredded barbecue seitan, but Bianca’s Un-chicken ’n’ Dumplins looked awfully good…..
