Rice, rice and more rice

After music class this morning, Ella and I stopped at Whole Foods. Thanks to her pacifier and a snack cup of oatios, she was relatively well behaved, despite the fact that I was messing with her nap time. She's not a big fan of sitting in the shopping cart, in general. She tries to lean waaaay out of the cart and try to grab things off the shelf or turn around and grab things out of the cart and stick them in her mouth.

It's not easy to go grocery shopping when I have her with me because I really need to concentrate, read every label a couple times, compare ingredients, compare nutritional information, etc. I used to compare prices but that doesn't even come into play 9 times out of 10. At this point, I'm just trying to find things that meet all our dietary restrictions. I've had a lot more luck finding food that Ella can eat than finding food that I can eat. Just about everything that's gluten, dairy, nut, soy and egg free has rice in it and I am sensitive to rice. Ugh.

Anyways, that brings me to my super exciting find of the day: Bahama Rice Burgers... veggie burgers that are free of the top 8 allergens which are soy, wheat, egg, milk, fish, shell fish, tree nuts and peanuts!!! I've been looking everywhere for just such a thing. It seems that every veggie burger on the planet is made with soy! Naturally, it's made with rice so it's off limits to me but I am thrilled to have another protein source for Ella! And because I am just that excited about this, I have to post a picture.
