Any "Whole Foods" store lovers?

I just like WH store so much since I use organic ingredients for my cooking. I go there like 3 times a week or more. Anybody found great stuff there that you like to share?
I also like to ask any healthy food lovers who eat organic and if your group has an opening.( with daily logging members )

I love organic foods there..but I call it "Whole Paycheck", as opposed to Whole Foods. Totally overpriced.

I far prefer Trader Joe's - all the foods I'm interested in at a fraction of the price of Whole-lotta-$$$. I do purchase Green & Black hot chocolate there though - it's my special treat to myself. They also have the best sushi in my area. I get there maaaaybe once a month or so.

I like Whole Foods, but I also like Trader Joe's.
Some of the Same things are at both... (Of course I go to the cheaper one...)

However, I buy most of my fresh produce from WF--they have a really good selection. I do, however, try to be mindful of the fruits and veggies that are better organic (i.e. ones with thin skins vs. thick). I also like WF fish counter-- their fresh fish is fabulous-- I rarely buy full price, and I like that they try to stick with sustainable fish industries....

TJ has great deals on other things... (Frozen foods, wines, sauces, etc.) I mix it up, and I've noticed that my old grocery store (which I rarely visit now) has even started carrying organic goods to try to compete with both WF & TJ!

Whole Foods 365 brand tends to be reasonably priced. I try to get as much as I can by going th 365 route.

Whole foods is my favorite. I like the tomato sauce there and I also like the 365 brand peanut butter (without sugar).

I love the WHole Foods whole wheat sourdough bread ....I love it too much! Some stores have a prepared tuna fish w/cranberries that is delicious. Their fish is always fresh .. but it is so expensive. They also have a better selection of fruit juices. Their garlic green beans in preapred foods .. the lentil burgers ...great!

One complaint I have is that I have tried several shampoos and conditioners from WHole FOods .. and they have all been horrible! I think that some organic bath products are just bad ... that they have no benefit beyond being organic, even though the prices are really high.

Funny, my experience with Whole Foods shampoo is just the opposite, I love it. Then again, i'm a guy and would not notice good shampoo if it bit me.

I was at WF the other day - I bought some vegan blueberry cornbread which was GREAT. Also, as far as shampoos and deodorants, I quite like the 'Kiss My Face' range. Bought a deodorant the other day and love it.

I agree though, WF does tend to be pricey.
