I live in Dayton, OH which is about 45 minutes or so north of Cincinnati. Well, I consider myself really lucky because Cinci has a place called Jungle Jim's which is the best store ever! They have huge cheese, wine, dessert, meat and produce departments. Also, they have great selections of food from other countries. Well, I was on a quest for fresh figs. KARVY09 mentioned them a couple of weeks ago and TURBOGIRL mentioned them today. I've never had a fresh fig so wanted to check them out. Did Jungle Jim's have them?? Yes they did. I bought figs, dragon fruit, and lychees (a very nice little man peeled a lychee for me to try and it was so good!). I bought red chard and fresh beets. I will be in produce heaven for the next several days. I also picked up some lentil salad and chickpea salad and for dessert pumpkin pie hummus & cinnamon sugar pita chips...yum!!! I'm going to have to make the drive down there more often so I can try more great foods! Yay!

I made a long overdue trip to the grocery store today. I took my time and tried to stick to the perimeter of the store (just like you're supposed to do) and ended up with some really good food. I was so proud of myself I just wanted to share.
OK...I couldn't get my pictures to load...grrr!!! So, I'll just tell you what I got: fresh pineapples, strawberries, asparagus, brocoli, salad in a bag (my goal is to eat this, I am horrible about buying them and not eating them), sliced fresh mushrooms, extra firm tofu, frozen tilapia, albacore tuna in water, water chestnuts, low sodium soy sauce and chocolate frozen yogurt.
I'm going to make a stir fry with the tofu, brocoli, mushrooms and water chestnuts...., looking forward to that!
I'm more excited about this healthy food than junk food...yay me :)
Have a good weekend everyone!
