Eat Local Challenge, Wednesday Breakfast


Local granola, local blueberries, local milk. And a spot of coffee. What’s better than that?


I went to Whole Foods Market in White Plains yesterday.


There were two local choices when it came to granola.

“Most Awesome Granola”


It’s from New City —


— but I didn’t know what to think of the chocolate covered peanuts.

So I went with Raspberry Fields Forever granola:


To be honest, I’m not a big fan of the raspberries. I prefer my granola with ginger, no fruit. Oh well!

Local milk, in glass bottles no less!

  1. WF is just getting too burdensome and expensive to go to.

    The parking nightmare is reason in itself to avoid the place. WF states that the parking situation is not in its control, but hardly offers an incentive to go there.

    The prices are just plain insulting. The other day I was looking at the dessert cooler and picked up a s’mores. It looked like a scooter pie. It was $4.99!

    It’s hard to get excited about a place that takes so much work to go to.
