I looked forward to all the wonders that Trader Joe's had to offer...until I went to the one in the capital. It was nice, small, with lower prices than the independent stores, and still limited. Very limited. Not to worry, I did get a moisturizing shampoo. (Yeah, I'm completely out of shampoo/shampoo bars, and my last wash consisted of me washing my hair with a castile facial soap - thanks Lisa, you made a great versatile bar! My hair felt wonderful!!!) But I still needed a shampoo to have on hand. So I got this one:
I also purchased some much needed jojoba oil. I meant to get a bottle of Soyaki sauce - the sample I tasted was so delicious!
Well, I won't give up on Trader Joe's. There's a huge one in Chapel Hill. It's just that in our capital, Whole Foods is king! So I went to a brand new, super wonderful Whole Foods before leaving.
This is just a sample of what I saw:
I managed to get the chia seeds I want to try, measured out a small portion of millet, and purchased a serving-size of a vegan protein mix. (What I learned from one of the associates there is that soy is very mucous-causing, much like dairy can be for some people! I don't knowingly have any food allergies but I've been wondering if dairy is the culprit behind my crazy sinuses. I thought switching to soy milk was a good thing, but maybe it was making it worse. Humm... Not trying to be gross here, but I'm just saying.)
