I might need to enter a 12-step program.

So I've recently realized I have an addiction to shopping at Wegmans. For those of you who don't know what that is, it is a grocery store that is actually a wonderland. I go there at least three times a week and it is not good. I try to be good when I'm in there but I end up spending lots of money anyway... Whatever. At least I'm buying good stuff and not junk (<3 organics section <3). Anyway here are some recent discoveries I've, well, discovered that have made my life just that much better.

1. Quaker Chewy Granola bars. They are 90 calories each like the Special K bars I used to buy (no more!), have less sugar than SK bars, less fat, and better flavors. And they are cheaper. And more come in each box (10 vs 6! That is a lot wouldn't you say so?). So I was ecstatic to find these needless to say.

2. Oikos Greek yogurt (from Stonyfield Farms). Not only does one serving have only 80 calories, it has 15 GRAMS of protein! That is insane! I love it. PLUS it is superthick and has active cultures in it for digestive help, AND it is delicious. The only big problem is it is pretty expensive. But I think I love it too much to go back to regular. Oh Greek yogurt you have spoiled me.

3. Almond butter. Though this might turn out to be a downfall instead of a boon. It is more delicious than peanut butter and is probably better for you. Unfortunately I tend to eat it right out of the jar waaaaay too often and find I can't stop myself from taking just a little bit more. Next thing I know half of it is gone. Oops. Also this is pret-ty pricey as well. So I think I'm going to have to stop buying it. :(

4. Luna bars. They are delicious, have most of my daily vitamin needs, lots of calcium and protein, and are 180 calories each (except Chocolate Raspberry which has 190 but that is not even worth thinking about). I eat one every day pretty much. They are so good.

5. Vitamin D supplements. Apparently nobody gets enough Vitamin D (it comes from sunlight) and it's necessary because it helps you absorb calcium. No Vitamin D = calcium deficiency. The supplements I bought obviously don't taste like anything but hey they are softgels and who can resist those I ask you? Not me. They are delightful and way easier to swallow than my huge multivitamins (boo to them, they taste bad).

I also love the baking section which could turn out to be a problem.

After reading this blog I am hungrier than I have been in months.
