if it's in the whole foods cookbook, the nutrition info is there.

Who thought a health food store could sabotage us? I have a great boss that buys my lunch every day. We try to eat healthy - never fast food, and Whole Foods is one of our weekly favorites. If I'm not willing to eat from the salad bar (oly fresh veggies and fruits) I usually go for the Burrito in a Box - at least that way I have some control over what goes in it. I try to abide by "if I can't can't/won't calculate the calories I skip it". I only hope I'm on the right track with the Burrito in a Box! Sure wish Whole Foods would give us some nutritional counts.

Whole Foods seems like a good option to grab a healthy lunch, but there is Mac Cheese on that hot bar! And now they have a self-serve cookie counter near the coffee! I saw these things and got them. I would like to say that there was an emotional reason for getting them, but I cannot. It was more of a habit: I saw, said "Yum" in my head, I got.

Now for the backpedaling: I did only get a half cup of the mac cheese and about one and a half cups of salad. I have no excuse for the cookies... they go well with coffee (eek!).

I need to practice a little discipline.
