Thanks for all the positive comments on my last post. I honestly feel like I’m jumping on some diet bandwagon with this, but I guess I’ll find out in a few weeks if I feel noticeably different. Coincidently Sarena suggested that I go to Natural Foods Warehouse to find some gluten-free items at good prices and guess where I was about two hours before her comment?
Apparently, I don’t know not to put my finger over the camera lens. To my credit, I was very upset at the time because it was the last broadcast of a radio program (radio free lunch) on davefm, my favorite station that is turning into a sports station in a few weeks. The DJ was crying so then I was crying and now there is going to be no alternative/modern rock stations in our whole city. Anyway, yes, that’s somehow related to the fact that I put my finger over the camera lens.
I digress. I always digress. It’s how I think. Multi-tasking at it’s finest.
A few weeks ago, I purchased a Groupon to Natural Foods Warehouse. It’s about a 15-20 minute drive from my office, but it’s a relatively easy drive, so I thought I’d just go during lunch. It makes more sense to do that since it’s in the total opposite direction from my house. Like the name suggests, the inside looks rather warehousey.
They don’t have any produce, but they have a lot of packaged stuff (and some freezer and refrigerated too) and it’s all decently priced, at least for natural foods. I got really excited, however, when I saw one thing…
You can’t really tell from this picture, but that top of Kombucha is in a dark brown bottle and the bottom row is in a clear bottle. The dark brown bottle is the original formula – the one that they took off the shelves two years ago (I specifically remember that it was two years ago because I really wanted some when I was getting my wedding dress altered and they didn’t have the new formula then.) because of the small alcohol content. I knew that they had begun to sell the original formula again in the darker bottles but I’d never seen it in person until now.
No joke, I got carded for buying it. It was also 50 cents more expensive than the kind in the clear bottle. Other than bottles of Kombucha, I just kind of bought some random things, but one thing that I did get that’s worth noting is gluten-free bread. I did a search yesterday for “best gluten-free bread” and the Huffington Post ranked Udi’s as the favorite, so I thought I’d try it while I had this Groupon.
It’s definitely smaller than regular bread, but honestly, it tasted pretty similar to me. It was a little more dry and crumbly, but I thought it was perfectly fine tasting. Expensive, but perfectly fine tasting.
I spy a hungry Golden Retriever. Although he was visibly less excited about gluten-free bread then regular.
