Shopping #1

*(fridge)Japanese eggplants (front), giant carrot, more carrots, green bell pepper, cooked chickpeas, portabellas, asparagus, cooked quinoa, soy milk + more*

Sorry there was no posts yesterday. I had to go to work with mom so that we could do some of our Re-stock Shopping (once a month we do a large re-stock shopping trip, so the freezer and cabinets get restocked, then we buy fresh groceries every week), and then I had rock climbing last night. So yesterday we went to the Oriental Grocer, The Apple Crate (small health food store), and Sam's Club, then this morning we went to Wal-mart (yes I shop at wal-mart, do not judge me). Here was the load. I also got some extra pantry stuff for storage just in case of ice storms/ hurricanes/ other natural disaster (like tomatoes, beans, tofu etc...)

3 medium Japanese eggplants
1 HUGE carrot + 2 pounds carrots (bagged)
4 boxes shelf-stable firm tofu*
1.5 pounds fresh baby spinach*
1 pounds portabella mushrooms
3 pounds roasted cashews (they didn't have raw)
12 pounds frozen strawberries
2.2 pounds fresh asparagus (it comes in 2.2 pounds bundles at Sam's Club)
2 pounds bananas
12 pounds Japanese sweet potatoes (the white ones)
12 oz quinoa
1 pound wild rice
7 fresh dates

*oranges, kiwis, apples and limes*

4oz liquid plain Stevia (they didn't have powdered)
