SUNDAY AT WHOLE FOODS

I finally had the opportunity to take the car and drive to our local Whole Foods ALONE, without anybody rushing me or questioning my product picks. It was fun. Since I'm trying to go more natural and organic with all my shopping choices, I picked up this Jason Healthy Mouth mouthwash Certified Organic Tea Tree Oil and Aloe Vera Gel help soothe and heal gums. Anti-bacterial Perilla Seed Extract helps block sugar acids. Mint, Tea Tree, Clove and Cinnamon keep your whole mouth healthy. Donna Sonkin had recommended it in one of her articles. We'll see if it does the trick. I recently ran out of facial wash too, so I picked up Alba's Pineapple enzyme cleanser. I've been using Alba's mango body butter for some time and it smells the best. For handwash I opted for Method. Most of our cleaning products are Method's and their hand soaps are pretty good as well. All these product mentioned here have 100% vegetarian ingredients, not tested on animals and they are paraben free.

Then of course I need to have some healthy snacks around the house. I finally got some Goji berries that David Wolfe and other nutritionist claim to be most probably the most nutrition-rich food in the world. Ok, I admit they don't taste like strawberries or blueberries, but you can get used to the taste and learn to like them. Just think how good they are for you.
And talking about berries, another berry considered superfood is Acai. Acai is a rich source of antioxidants, it boosts energy and immune system and promotes healthy skin. I've been drinking Acai juice from the supermarket few times and it tastes good. Today I discovered certified organic Acai powder that I can add to my smoothies, yogurt or mix it with my morning oj. I also got superfood trail mix that includes pistachios, raw cacao niblets and goji berries. I am so good to myself! I did buy some real food too, but these were the products I am most excited about. Not to forget Panda liqorice. Got to have something sweet for my sweet tooth.
