Healthy Food Shopping Haul at Sprouts

Over Labor Day weekend I took full advantage of Steve keeping Scarlet while I went to my workout and shopped afterwards. I splurged and drove the extra 15 minutes to Sprouts Farmers Market, a grocery store with locations sprinkled throughout California, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. I laughed walking in reminiscing about Morgan Splurlock (of The Greatest Movie Ever Made) calling Trader Joe’s the Whole Foods for poor people. I’d say the same about this place, though “for poor people” being a bit of an exaggeration. Sprouts offers wholesome brands you won’t find at traditional stores, but not at the premium price of fine food stores.

I shopped on a near-empty stomach, having snacked only on a banana post-workout. Not a wise decision, but one I had to keep reminding myself of when tempted to toss cookies or other treats into my cart. Fortunately, I managed to stick to my list.
