I love shopping (grocery, for fun…any type is welcome!)!
From Trader Joe’s and the local Food Co-Op. (I love their goodies!!!!!)
TJ’s has the best chocolate soymilk ever.
Not too thick like the Silk Chocolate soy milk; juuuuuuuuuust right. :) And each is only $1.69!! That’s pretty cheap/afforadable! :D
Brownie (without the cinammon – tastes 100 times better!!), PBChocolate bar, and Bobo’s Oat Bars. (Chocolate for me, PB for him) :) My bf ate both the PB bars in one day! What a peanut butter monster he is :) (the girl on the Oat Bars is really cute!) :) They seem to have lots of other flavors, like Almond, Apricot, Banana, Coconut, and much more!!
Got luna bars in a box for the first time ever.
15 in each. It’s the same price no matter how you buy it :) This is my emergency food, in case the school loses power or something. :)
Do you think I got this at the food co-op? Nope! Actually from Trader Joe’s, too! (The food co-op has it for $3.75-ish) While at Trader Joe’s, it’s $2.99!!!
Same thing with these tooth brushes! It was also $2.99 at TJ’s!!! (around $4 at the co-op!) 8O Recently, throwing stuff away was becoming a concern for me (thinking about how it stays in the landfill) I can recycle these at the Preserve Gimme 5 located at Whole Foods. :) I can recycle any “5” marked containers here (like hummus containers, yogurt containers, etc.) too!! Awesome program!!
This video we watched in English got me thinking about it. (“This is not an environmental class!” is what my teacher likes to say) I decided to make as much toiletry products (shampoo, soap, conditioner, etc.) that I can, because really, I think that now is the right time to stop being selfish and think about what’s happening to the planet! **DIY Lip balm post to come!!
As of now, I already use homemade conditioner. (2 tbsp apple cider vinegar + 5 seconds squirt of lemon juice + water) This has been working out really good for me. It’s actually helping my hair grow faster!!! I was surprised by this result, so I recommend people using it and continue using it!
This video got me thinking: “What the heck are all those chemicals that I’m putting on my head?!” Looking at the ingredients and searching what they were, they were actually petroleum!!!! Scary? Yes. Want something better? Yes. Apple cider it is? YES!!!
Buys Round 2. The chocolate chips and coconut butter were used to make my Nut Free Chocolate Coconut Butter Spread.
I love big clips: I like paper clips!!! They keep everything organized, don’t they? ;)
New Finds and Eats!!!
Finally found the Chocolate Dipped Coconut!!!! And I found Chocolate Chunk, too!! (WF’s was doing a beauty section make-over) The Coconut one was great! The taste and smell of coconut was good, but it was very oily :) (photos to come soon!) The Chocolate Chunk tasted like coffee!! Yes it is chocolate, but it had a slight coffee taste. Coffee-lovers might like it :)
This local bakery reopens on February 1st!!!
They have vegan pretzels, and I want to go check ’em out! :)
And I hope this weather comes back soon!
