Wow, yesterday flew by so quickly by the time I thought to hop onto WordPress for the first time it was already midnight?
Boyfriend and I woke up around 2 in the afternoon, he did the dishes while I cleaned out the fridge and cupboards, then I got our grocery list ready. I had already picked out the recipes the night before.
I am getting a little bored of going to Smith’s every week so we went to Sprouts for the first time… I was in dairy-free heaven. I can’t believe we had never stepped foot in there before. They not only stocked tons of dairy-free brands and alternatives but 90% of their products are promised to be (and definitely were) natural and organic. Most surprisingly everything was inexpensive (or reasonable). Not to mention, they were having a huge Buy One, Get One Free sale on tons of items.
The whole store was awesome but, I was most impressed with their spice rack. You are able to buy any of their spices at any amount you want. There were even baggies provided as well. Similarly, there were bins of different flours and grains you could scoop on your own… coffee beans, nuts, etc.
I couldn’t believe there was even a deli and a butcher. Their ground beef is 100% grass-fed and half the price of the Simple Truth Organic brand we were buying at Smith’s…
Anyways, I could go on and on about this treasure trove we discovered but, I must move on. We are definitely returning for our next shopping trip so I can talk about it again then heheh.
When we got home from shopping… I tore open all the new snacks and tried everything (as usual). Boyfriend started on making dinner and I watched a few episodes of The Great British Baking Show.
When we finished eating, I browsed the entire web to read and watch a ton of different subscription box unboxing posts because… I was itching to buy a new one LOL. I KNOW, I already have 3 ongoing ones but, I’m going to get the one I eventually decided on just this once and then cancel it… OKAY?!
I continued watching unboxing videos even after I decided on the one I wanted. Y’know… just to make sure I had made the right decision. 😛
Today, we woke up at nearly 3 PM. I laid around and read more of Down the Rabbit Hole until 5 PM. I, then, hopped into the shower to wash up and shave. I got out, moisturized and then boyfriend and I whipped up some easy-to-make food from our trip to Sprouts.
I picked up this Vegan Salad with Sesame Dressing from their little deli spot. I love getting things that are labeled “vegan” then adding meat to it LOL. Seriously though, when the meat is already included, the makers always skimp out on the rest of the ingredients.
Never would you find quinoa, chickpeas, cashews, walnuts, broccoli AND MORE in a salad that had chicken in it. We made a Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry yesterday so it was the perfect addition into the mix. I decided I prefer chopped salad kits though because there’s way more crunch to those.
Boyfriend had these wonderful looking burritos made by Red’s, one with beef the other with turkey, and tater tots on the side.
When we finished eating, we went to Starbucks for our iced espressos. I pretty much started typing this as soon as we returned home.
I’m gonna go and do my hair and makeup for work now. I’m pretty depressed because my left-hand thumbnail is visibly cracking on one side and if it continues it will be more than painful… but, WORSE than that, I’m going to have trim all my nails down again soon. 😡
Tomorrow, I’ll finally post my review and fave quotes for Never Grow Up (Jackie Chan’s memoir). I had no idea the first of March was THIS FREAKIN’ FRIDAY. The whole ‘only having 28 days in Feb.’ thing really effed me up.
