Produce Produce Produce

This morning’s Hot Yoga class was just what I needed. Every time I go, I learn something new and truly get the BEST stress relief wish I could go everyday! My Bff Danielle and blogging buddy Angie were there too!

After class I headed over to Washington Produce where I picked up all my produce for the week. I love it there because all I have to do is go online pick out everything I want and when I show up they just load it, into my car!!! Talk about a time saver :)

I went to Costco to pick up some pillows I have been eyeing, and walked away with all this :). One pair of CK Jeans for him and David Bitton Jeans for me (only $22 each!). I also got Hubby a Timberland Fleece, he needs it for the mountains!

I haven’t really eaten a full meal all day, been snacking through fruit, veggies, and Home Made Power Bars..but I feel great! I am already making up a plan for tonight’s dinner :) NOW TIME TO GET TO WORK on that TASK LIST!!!!

How much do you think all this produce and tofu cost me?  I am curious to see what you guys think.

It looks like it might be a jicama. That's my guess anyways!

My guess is a large sweet potato.

Bekah said...

that is DEFINITELY a jicama. :)
it's what my mom always gets, and it sits on the bottom of our produce drawer. :) it is quite crunchy and yummy though.

i'm gonna guess somewhere between 30 and 40 bucks for all the loot. everything looks good!

Definitely jicama. It'll kind of taste like a starchy/ not too sweet crisp apple (I think they're also known as Mexican apples).

I'm guessing around 25 bucks

Island Girl Eats said...

Looks like a good assortment of produce. Did it cost around$28????

Matt said...

I would guess it cost around 20-25 bucks?

maria said...

I'm guessing around 40 bucks? It's hard to tell because I can't remember a lot of the prices from back in the U.S. for items I didn't buy often.

hmm $20?? that would be a great deal for all the amazing produce

Jicama- delicious shredded with a coleslaw; cut into sticks for snacking; strips go well on a salad. Cut chunks off and peel the fibrous outer layer. Keep the remainder wrapped tight in plastic.

One cup is around 50 calories, 12 g carbs, lots of Vit. C and no fat. It's also a good source of potassium and fiber. Enjoy it!!


it is JICAMA!!!

Katy said...

Yup, jicama -- I'm late to the party, but it's one of my favorite snacks! Starchy, sort of sweet and perfect raw or in salads. Enjoy!

My mom makes an awesome salsa with Jicama.
I think I need to check out Washington Produce...

It's Jicama...lol...a little late. I grew up eating it with a mix of watermelon, mango, or cucumbers with lemon/lime, salt, and some chili powder...yummy!!
