Whole Foods Salad Bar

June 22, 2011

Tonight was a good night for us climbing. Ji and Beth passed their lead climbing/lead belaying tests at the gym, and Ji and I both cleanly climbed what they call the “birth simulator!” Last year at this time, we could barely figure out the first two moves. As the name of the route implies, it’s pretty much a few holds on one wall, and you have to climb head first through a small hole at the bottom, to the other side of the wall without touching the ground, using only the holds. It’s a pretty sweet climb.  Surprisingly, it was super easy. To celebrate, we treated ourselves to a healthy dinner from the Whole Food’s salad bar. Whole Foods is a great place to grab a quick bite. They have trays and trays of both hot and cold entrees, sides, salads, etc. As you can see from the photo below, I love me a hodgepodge of random things.

I always get a few bits of roasted vegetables (carrots, squash, zucchini, green bell peppers), raw spinach topped with red beets, almond slivers, radishes, black olives, and a quinoa/wheatberry blend to top. I don’t use salad dressing. I complete the meal with some protein via a hard boiled egg and a few pieces of chicken-fried tofu (covered in nutritional yeast). SOOO delicious and very healthy. If you ever find yourself at a Whole Foods, check out the salad bar. You won’t be disappointed.

    Is the whole foods salad bar as unhealthy as eating out? Is it healthy food to eat? Thanks!~

    Definitely not! I surely hope I emphasized in my blog that eating from the Whole Foods salad bar can be really healthy. Yes there are things that are obviously unhealthy like mac and cheese, curries, creamy pasta salads, etc. But if you use your good judgment and get things like veggies, green salad, tofu, etc., it’s a healthy way to eat out.
