I spy Trader Joe's, The Fresh Market, and Fresh2Order!

This weekend we went up to Greenville to see our aweeeeeeesome friend, Cory! Here, say hi to Cory:

We stayed there Friday night and then headed to Atlanta on Saturday for the Journey concert. When we got to Atlanta, Brandon's friend Adam told me there was a Fresh Market right by his apartments. I was so excited and ran off to explore. I was in there for 45 minutes (only to get food for lunch) because I didn't want to leave. It was fun! I picked up our lunch (a turkey & cranberry sandwich for him and blueberry yogurt, banana, apple, and pasta salad for me) and a bag of chocolate goodies. I got dark chocolate covered toffee (omg yum) and dark chocolate covered pretzels. Everything was yummy but I was so tired that I forgot to take pictures. The concert was pretty cool. We went with a big group, which was fun, but we got rained out!

Before heading home on Sunday we were hunting around for a place to eat lunch and I spied a Trader Joe's! Ah! We don't have those in Charleston either, so I was very excited. I picked up 2 jars of their almond butter for only $4.99 each! That is so much cheaper than the Maranatha AB from Whole Foods ($9.99). I also picked up a Honey Greek yogurt, of course.

Their Greek yogurt was sooooo creamy! It wasn't tangy at all, but I didn't get much of a honey taste. I liked it a lot, but am staying faithful to Oikos.

We chose a little place called Fresh2Order for lunch. They had lots of yummy salads, soups, and sandwiches.
I got the Spinach salad. It came with strawberries, golden raisins, slivered almonds, feta and a raspberry vinaigrette. I added almond & rosemary crusted chicken skewers.

Brandon got the Asian Salad. It was a mix of baby greens, candied walnuts, tomatoes, sesame seeds, avocado, pickled ginger, crispy noodles, mandarin oranges, mixed nuts, and a dijon vinaigrette. He added grilled chicken.
On the way home, I pulled out this MASSIVE apple! It was a honeycrisp apple that I picked up from The Fresh Market. It was so juicy!
