Publix. HEB. Whole Foods. Wegman’s.

Running this morning kicked my butt. It was 86 degrees with 60% humidity. I ran, ran, ran, and gave up and walked the last leg when what I thought was the last hill wasn’t. With a mild headache from caffeine withdrawal and our glass-walled greenhouse heating up in here, I can only think about one thing… going grocery shopping.

Seriously craving all the fresh fruits and vegetables. Avocadoes. Apples with the skin on. Corn on the cob. Almonds. Peanut butter. Banana. Baked potatoes. Peach crumbles. Almond milk. Peaches. Blueberries. Oatmeal. Spinach. A plain scone with honey. Tortillas. Yogurt and pancakes. Honey on pancakes. What I really want are these overnight oats with almond milk.

Picture from Eating Bird Food

Bright, ripe vegetables in different colors laid out. Juicy, tangy, sweet sour fruits, foods that have never seen the oven or the frying pan. After eating traditional Korean meals for a month (rice with salty/hot side dishes) all I can think about are fresh fruits and vegetables. Grocery shopping on a cool Friday night in Houston, strolling the aisles and reading every label. Oh please Philly, don’t disappoint me groceries-wise.
