I Heart American Healthfood Stores

The other day, Soroosh asked me, of all the places we’ve been together, where would I like to go again before leaving nashville. So I screamed, WHOLEFOODS. Also, Trader Joe’s. American health/organic supermarkets are SO much better than any I’ve ever visited ever. From NZ to Australia to Japan to Europe, Merica is the best. The best. I want to live in their (the supermarkets’) shelves. Right next to the turmeric coconut water. Or the Nigerian cacao nibs.

Wholefoods has this amazing buffet section where you can fill a plate or box with a HUGE assortment of hot and cold healthy, organic, vegetarian and vegan dishes. They also sell pre-made stuff like brown-rice sushi and quinoa rolls etc. It truly is heaven. If I needed a reason to live in America, this would be it. I could eat healthy and organic everyday and I could do it without a single effort.

Unlike Wholefoods, Trader Joe’s isn’t entirely organic but it’s still a really fun and upbeat healthfoods market. Gosh, sometimes (haha) I love Americans!

  1. Wow, this is my first time to see a whole lot of pre-cut, pre-packaged food. On my side of the world if we want organic food we go to farmer’s markets where we do the picking (sometimes) or choose the product we want and it’ll be harvested fresh.

    1. Hey Clare! Thanks for reading. Yes, I found it so interesting too. Before moving to live in Japan, I had this idea that Japanese food was the healthiest in the world. When I got there, I saw everyone consuming fried foods, white rice and noodles! Also, marbled meat and ample sugar! I guess that’s why travel is so important – so we can see the world for ourselves.
