What I Ate This Week

What's-In-Your-Cart-Dec-9-12

Do you ever peek into other people’s shopping carts, or gawk at their purchases at the check-out? Do you then try to figure out what kind of diet, if any, they’re on? Followed perhaps by a quick glance at the shopper to evaluate the success of that diet?

Somehow I doubt I’m the only one… In which case, you might find my weekly shopping loot interesting.

Even more nosy? ;) Here are the details:

“But if you don’t eat bread, what the heck do you eat??”

This should answer that question and then some. Check out the images below of everything that I ate this past week to see the extent of my suffering on this paleo/primal “diet”.

What's-In-Your-Cart-Nov.-29-2012

In addition to the stuff needed for a proper turkey dinner, I also picked up a few other items like:

  • pastured eggs (I wish we had these at Canadian supermarkets!)
  • sardines (so much cheaper than here)
  • raw sauerkraut (beet and kimchi flvaours)
  • coconut aminos (for the rare time I need to sub soy sauce)
  • butter (Kerrygold and Organic Valley, plus Vermont Creamery)
  • cheese (brie, camembert, and Truffle Tremor Goat cheese)
  • hard cider: 3 types of Crispin plus another type (forgot to include in picture)
  • a sheep’s milk yogurt
  • a few dark chocolate bars
  • organic avocados (5 for $5 !?)
  • Vermont Creamery Vanilla Crème Fraiche
  • Vermont Creamery Quark
  • Hail Merry Macaroons (I had heard so much about these online)
  • Hail Merry Chocolate Tart (made with almond flour)
  • 100% Italian extra virgin organic olive oil (slightly cheaper than here)

Honestly, shopping at that American Whole Foods was one of the highlights of my trip to Portland :P And all the other Portland stuff rocked. What can I say, we’re a little deprived up here in Canada ;)
