I took n along for a tour of Whole Foods. We signed up through my new favorite site: www.greenmomsmeet.com. The tour filled up fast online, but only one other mother/son duo showed up besides us! I thought our tour guide did a great job of highlighting the quality of the food at Whole Foods, while also emphasizing the value that can be found. I have to admit, I do not go to Whole Foods too often, mainly due to my perception that it is pricey. I think Whole Foods is trying to get away from its reputation of being “Whole Paycheck”.
It has been a while since I have visited Whole Foods. I had forgotten how impressive their selection is, especially its prepared foods area. We were also given a reusable shopping bag with a few samples, which was nice. The tour brought Whole Foods back into my radar, and I hope they can continue to thrive as a business committed to local, organic, healthy, sustainable food.
