Favorite foods from Whole Foods

I don't shop there often because of the cost but I do go there for their Middle East/Isreali couscous (bulk isle).
It is the only place I can find it.(it is much larger than regular couscous)

I also like their selection of Quinoa and other grains.

Their cheese selection is top notch too.The one by us will put out cubes for trying.

I stay away from the meat section based purely on cost.

Their premade/deli foods are great, especially the Calzone and salads selections

The only thing I really like from there that I can't get somewhere else is their jarred pasta sauce.

adora
(dark chocolate)

CALCIUM SUPPLEMENT
500 mg Calcium
Vitamin D3
Magnesium

"adora" is a bag of individually wrapped premium dark chocolate (looks like Dove chocolate) that is 500mg of calcium with vitaminD3 and magnesium in each piece. They are delicious and each piece only has 2grams of sugar. It's Gluten Free, No Corn Syrup, No Trans Fat.

The only negative is that you can only have 1-3 pieces depending on your age (1-2 for under 50 and 2-3 for over 50).

It sure beats taking a big pill...and helps your craving for sweets.

Brun Uusto Cheese. Only Whole Foods carries it. You put it in a fry pan, toast it, cut it and serve it. Like a cheese pizza without the crust.

My kids love it and I also love their fig preserve.

I ordered a custom made turducken for Christmas one year! That was the only place I could find to make it for me in my area. They may look fun to make on your own, but it also looked like too much work for me.
By the way-it was really good, but a lot of money. Probably won't get one again, but it was a hit with the family. Usually we have duck on Christmas!

I had to look turducken up. Wow, that looks so flavorful and interesting...but, yes, a lot of work too. As I chock up another tidbit in my Book of DC Knowledge. I learn something new everyday. Thank you!

They have a good selection of gluten free breads and other GF products. Other than that, I only get things they have on sale as they are way overpriced.

I used to go to Whole Foods when I worked close to one. When I stopped working there I stopped shopping at WF because it was 35 miles away. But I love the tuna salad, Mom's chicken soup and the salad bar (greek wheat berry salad, asian noodles, fried chicken wings), the soy chocolate muffins, maytag blue cheese, I can't remember the brand of yogurt but it had cream on top and was made with honey as the sweetener, the coffee yogurt was awesome!! The bakery goods were fantastic. Prices were very high for a lot of the food!!
