Happy me with a giant tea after a great couple of hours at Whole Foods. Why aren’t all takeaway tea cups this size?

Hello!

As I’ve mentioned a couple of times, Jamie and went to visit the Whole Food Markets in Giffnock on Friday. I was ridiculously excited and so was Jamie. We both love food and the combination of healthy, organic and food is just even better.

Whole Foods is just a short walk from Giffnock train station so it was very easy to get to from central Glasgow. We started off with having some food, which they serve in the store and you then take with you and purchase in their café area.

They have a salad bar and hot food area in the middle of the deli section of the store. There are also burrito and pizza options for those who fancy that, which Jamie was very happy about. Jamie had one of their burritos whilst I tried out the salad bar and hot food section. The sweet potato stew with brown rice and roasted vegetables on the side that I had was absolutely amazing! The salads that I tried were all great as well. I would go here a lot if I lived closer.

After we had some food in our stomach we were fit for fight/ shopping. I think we spent almost two hours in total in the shop strolling down the aisles and browsing through all the products on offer. There were so many things I wanted to buy. One of my favourite things a bout the shop was that they had a nut butter machine. If I didn’t have a food processor I would’ve loved to make some there. How cool is that?

Whole Foods make a lot of their own things aside from meals such as juices, smoothies, dips (guacamole, salsa and much more) and even tortilla chips. Amazing if you just want to pick something up on the way home if you’re feeling lazy.

What I loved about the place was you could get all your shopping done in one place without compromising on being healthy or buying organic products. It’s all there and you know it will be good for you as well as the planet.

So if you can, you need to go Whole Foods if you live around Glasgow. It’s safe to say it’s one of my new favourite places when it comes to food. I can’t wait for my next trip! Hopefully it will be soon.
