I'm hooked...

on this fig spread from Whole Foods. My cheese guy there introduced it to me and I LOVE it. I love my cheese guy too...not in a L-O-V-E sort of way (no worries, Dan) but I love how knowledgeable he is about cheese. I love all things cheese and my goal is to one day be as, lately for lunch I've been eating Stacy's whole wheat bagel chips, fig spread and a chunk of havarti (one of my faves) cheese with a green salad drizzled with a small amount of EVOO and basalmic vinegar. I'm telling you....this is so good! I get my whole grains, fruit and veggies(from the figs and green salad) and dairy all in one bite. My cheese guy also knows alot about pairing wines with cheeses, (something else I've been learning more about) and I'm starting to think I'm turning into a regular old foodie. So, when I'm in Whole Foods (which is weekly), he now sees me coming and gives me a mini-lesson on cheeses and wines. I look forward to it every week!
Oh, and I forgot to mention...for dessert I'll have a square of 70% dark chocolate-I love the Green and Black's kind . I look forward to it everyday...I get my kicks whenever I can. For some reason, I don't feel quite so guilty knowing that it's loaded with antioxidants (or that's what I tell myself).

That's it, I'm sold.

I am going to WF and getting some fig spread.

Don't you just love Whole Foods? I think I was the most excited person in town when they finally opened one in Greenville (one block from my office!). It's one of my favorite places.

I'll have to look for that fig spread.
