Whole Foods Hot Bar – Good or Evil?Posted by Kevin on October 08 at 01:13 pm
Our office (The Lima Loft) is downtown. This means that we frequent the same places (see our favorites) for lunch each day. Occasionally though, I have to run errands that aren’t downtown. On these days, I bring my car and my choices for lunch are virtually limitless! Yesterday, I had finished my errands and it was time to start thinking about lunch. I was near the new Whole Foods that everyone has been talking about, so I decided to check it out and try the hot bar. I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately and I knew they would have some great stuff.
For people that love food, walking into Whole Foods is like being a kid again and walking into Toys R Us. I think they arrange the fruits and vegetables by color – it’s like a work of art! My nose led me straight to the hot bar near the back of the store. I couldn’t believe the enormous selection. I’d be able to put a healthy, tasty lunch together for sure…
2 pieces of fried chicken, 1 sweet and sour meatball (just had to try it), and one heaping scoop of Mac ‘N Cheese later I was thinking, “How did this stuff get on my plate??!!” — It just looked so tasty, I couldn’t resist. I walked to the other end and made myself a small side salad for good measure.
I will say that the food was excellent. I was a little shocked when I got to the register and found out that my “quick lunch” with a bottle of water was over $14.00! It’s definitely not cheap, that’s for sure. I’ll probably go back once in a while, but I’ll be sure to take Ali with me to pick out my food. Unlike me, she actually has some will power.
Overall, I recommend it. If you’re trying to eat healthy, bring your strength and plenty of cash!
