I Have A Confession To Make.

When I have been on a hiatus from healthy eating and I decide that it’s time for a drastic change in my dietary habits, I head to Whole Foods.

Not just to buy healthy eats.

I go there because when I’m shopping, I feel as though I’m the girl I want to be.
(Not on the inside ~ I love that girl!)
The girl on the outside. (workin’ on bigger love!)

When I’m pushing my green cart past the stacks of beautifully arranged
fruits and vegetables,
some of which I don’t even know how to prepare,
I am the girl who
exercises regularly,
recycles all the containers of everything I buy,
does Pilates
and yoga
and rides her bike
almost everyday.

This girl in the brown skirt
and flip flops has it going on
in the no~preservatives~in~her~food
She cooks most of her meals
and never goes through the KFC drive through
late at night.
She buys things like white pepper, exotic spices,
seaweed and raw macademia nuts because
these are just a few of the ingredients she uses
when concocting her organic, raw recipes.

So, this curly haired girl in the brown and pink
tee paid twice the amount for her groceries today
so that she could be all these things and more
for an hour
and a half.

Because, also,
she believes that
some of them will come true.

And, she doesn’t know how that
blueberry danish got into the cart.

  1. You so rock.
    I smiled thru every word.
    Hello, brown skirted girl.


  2. Dreams do come true.
    Let me know how the Cafe Gratitude recipe turns out. 😉

    • Looooooooooooooved the Cafe Gratitude recipe!
      I had enough for 2 meals and to take some to work to share with a coworker! 😀

  3. Brilliant! I planted my herb garden last week and I’m planting my veggie garden this weekend! I soooo understand that girl you are becoming…she is in me too….we ate a 5 green veggie salad last night and have been cooking with all organic whole foods for over a month now…I feel so alive!

  4. I must admit that Whole Foods and I have a strange and mysterious relationship. I give him my paycheck. He gives me an organic world of goodness. But just for that hour or so.

    Love this. And so nice to “meet” you.


  5. How ironic….that girl you see yourself being
    while you’re in Whole foods is the girl I always
    picture you as! Welcome to MY vision of You!
    : )

  6. i have a recipe for you.
    take one part determination
    one part discipline
    and one part patience

    mix together and you will achieve this dream
