Confession time. Do you remember I posted about having dinner with Nick Nairn earlier this week, and told you how stuffed I was after all that food? Well, after dinner Dawn and I headed straight to a bloggers event held at the Whole Foods store in Giffnock for yet more food. I think my diet definitely went out the window that day!
I had never been to a Whole Foods store before, and was amazed at how big it was and how much they stocked. If I'm honest, I thought it would be mostly whacky health foods, but it sold everything from vegetables, to fresh fish, to beauty products and even had an impressive bakery which I can only describe as a carby heaven, bursting with so many different types of bread. They even make a gigantic sandwich with different topping each day, and cut it up to serve throughout the day, mmm!
After a tour of the store were treated to a banquet of different foods - from smoothies, to pies, carrot cake and we even made our own fresh guacamole to eat with the stores very own freshly made tortilla chips! YUM! I discovered the new love of my life - coconut oil - and since then haven't stopped eating it.
Whole Foods is quite far away for me to do my weekly shop there, but everything looked so fresh and delicious that I'm sure I'll be visiting again in the near future. I don't think any future dinner parties would be complete without some freshly baked bread or some of those delicious patisserie cakes!
Have you ever been to a Whole Foods store, or were you liked me and had a picture of purely health foods? If your're in the Glasgow area you can get information and directions to the Giffnock store here - it's definitely worth a visit!
