I went to Target yesterday and stocked up on a few essentials. It’s funny how a quick Target trip turns into 80 bucks, fast. There was also some overpriced and unpictured toilet paper. It’s very expensive to wipe your butt these days.
As I mentioned in my 10 Facts post, I am a dental hygiene freak
And as I mentioned in my last Target stocking up trip, I am a Carmex addict. I have the stuff in every room in my house, purse, car, bag. You name it. And I am proud that it’s been a month to the date since my last trip there.
After I came home from Target, I was lucky enough to find these Vega Complete Whole Food Health Optimizer samples
I’ve had them before and they are really nice to add a little ooomph to smoothies or shakes. They are plant based, not overly sweet, and not overly gritty or “earthy” tasting, either. Bonus!
I think I should add some Vega to a Chocolate Coconut Princess Smoothie
I thought this chart was cool that they enclosed with the samples.

From my last post about Pantry and Refrigerator Staples, I am glad you enjoyed that one! I put some extra time and thought into trying to come up with a fairly comprehensive list of what I always keep on hand. And then some learning curve/blog posting using WordPress/recipe re-linking stuff came up so I kinda wrote the post, twice. But hey, I know now what shortcuts I can and can’t take now.
It was fun to hear what’s in your pantries, cupboards, and fridges!

1. Have you ever tried any Vega products?
I’ve also tried some of the Vega bars, here.
2. Have you tried any “smoothie helpers”? Things to add some extra oomph, nutrition, or flavor to your smoothie? Tell me what you like and what you don’t like that you’ve tried.
I am generally not a huge fan of adding powders, “optimizers”, or additional specialty items to my smoothies. I believe plants are amazing and provide us so much already that we don’t need to feel as if we “have to” add in additional items. Also, the additional add-ins/powders/products can be hard to find, or pricey over the long term.
That said, every now and then they are fun to add in and offer a nice change of pace and additional nutrition stats.
3. What’s in your Target bag this week/month? Or what are your Target (or similar store) essentials?
I’ve posted about mine, here
Have a great evening gang!
It’s been a crazy day for me…I’ve hardly have time to come up for air and write this post!
