Jane and I were at our local Whole Foods today. We thought it might be a little less crowded this week because people are still away for the holidays. It certainly wasn't as insane as the last time we went, but it's still busy.
I must say, their customer service is wonderful. Every where we went there were plenty of staff who offered help, should we need it.
As I've mentioned, this Whole Foods Market is the largest Whole Foods west of the Rockies. I believe they're calling it their flagship store. This time we went for more than just groceries. We decided to get some ready made food. They had a number of vegan selections at the "deli" counter (I'm not sure what they're calling it). We opted for the Vegan Chicken Sonoma Salad. It was superb. It's been a long, long time, but I think it resembles a Waldorf Salad. There were red grapes and celery, pecans, and vegan chicken chunks. I'm not sure what the mock meat was, probably wheat gluten. We brought it home and shared the vegan salad, a vegan sandwich and a nice green salad. All in all, a delicious meal. We were very pleased with the vegan selections they offered and are thinking that we'll most likely use them for the occasional weekend lunch.
