Spend a lot of $ there

I probably have some old receipts hanging around somewhere, but I will try to reconstruct one instead. I'm vegetarian, if that makes this make more sense:

organic bananas
pears or apples in season
heirloom tomatos in season (hydroponic local out of season)
acorn squash in season
green beans in season
organic peeled baby carrots
spring mix
spinach, beet greens, chard, or brussels sprouts
bottled organic nonfat pasta sauce
lentil flour pasta (Papadini)
Quorn patties
frozen peas
frozen corn
Colombian Dota peaberry coffee
pecorino romano cheese for grating
other cheese for sandwiches (emmentaler or cheddar)
beer (milk stout? oatmeal stout? Hefeweizen?)
chipotle salsa
bulk short-grain brown rice, organic
canned or bulk organic black beans
sometimes organic Omega-3 eggs

I never get bread there as I can get better bread elsewhere, and they never have tomatillos, so I end up getting tomatillos and chilis somewhere else.

My shopping list for WH is pretty simple: artisanal cheeses, country pate, el rey dark chocolate blocks and Mestemaher german rye bread.

I find WH way too expensive - there are so many independent organic/health grocers around NY and so much cheaper. Also for as a NYer, I usually get intimidated by big mega supermarkets - too big, too crowded and not enough time to browse. Just not worth the time (the cheese counter and choc is by the entrance and I sneak in to coffee line to save time).

RE: veggie burger brands

Try the whole foods cereal bars (apple, blueberry).
Also, their Caribbean frozen fruit bars.

my whole foods has a burrito station where I can get a huge burrito (on a plate with no tortilla) for about $7. Hugely filling. I love Whole Foods prepared food, especially when it is affordable.
