Lately I usually have either a salad or hit the hot food bar at Whole Foods. Today I went to WF and got some sort of vegetarian curry. Normally I like what I get, but today it was just awful. The veggies were bordering on raw and the stuff had so much heat that my tongue is still feeling it a half hour later. All heat and no taste pretty much sums it up. I threw most of it out.

My girls asked me for some stuffed french bread for lunch so I made that and kept a piece for me. I was a sliced loaf of french bread, smear with cream cheese and finely sliced green onion both ends, Flat leaf Italian parsley chopped, several shots of Worcestershire sauce some mayo , then crab meat, add some chopped pecans and that's it. All they need do is run it under the broiler at school its yummy.

Lunch today was raw veggie plate from the garden--tiny bush beans, tomatoes, cukes, carrots, grated beet salad, and kohlrabi. S&P.

They sell office supplies & furniture, large and small appliances, pet food and supplies, car stuff, light bulbs, meat in large containers, eggs, butter, cheese, clothing, books, make up and personal hygiene stuff, a limited selection of herbs and spices in huge containers, ...

Mine has a pharmacy, some of them have gas (petrol) stations.

The first time you go, plan on a couple of hours to check out the store.
Thanks Taxy

They sure do sell a lot!

I will certainly give myself a good couple of hours to have a good look around

I normally have a good sized breakfast: Juice, eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast, Ovaltine and coffee for example; and I eat mid-morning, so I found if I have a normal lunch I am not hungry for supper until around 8 or 9 pm, which is unacceptable. So for lunch, after one hour of resistance traing starting at 10:30 and my senior fitness class from 11:30 until 12:30, I will have one of the many Ready-Pac Bistro salads available at the supermarket and a glass of San Pellegrino sparkling mineral water. If I buy 3 or more salads at a time, they're only 3 bucks American per salad. This way I am hungry for supper around 6:00pm.
