If you’ve ever found yourself standing frozen in front of the Whole Foods salad bar for 10 minutes straight, debating whether or not to ladle a scoop of never-before-tried Mediterranean chik’n salad into your cardboard to-go container, you are not alone. As we all know, trying a new item at the Whole Foods salad bar can be hit-or-miss: Sometimes, it’s the greatest $3 you’ve ever spent (thank you, seaweed salad!), and sometimes it’s a $3 scoop of sad, sad regret. Which is why we’re asking you: What’s your all-time favorite item at the Whole Foods cold salad bar? This way, the next time we brave the salad bar aisle, we can all try something new and know, prior to scooping, that it’s the bomb dot com.
I’ll go first. Whole Foods just so happens to be my happy place, so I’ve tried just about every vegetarian item their salad bar has to offer, and I’d say my favorite thus far is the seaweed salad I mentioned above: It tastes awesome piled onto a salad with tofu and spinach, or on it’s own, plus it’s cheaper than the seaweed salad sold at their sushi bar (and tastes better!). Now, your turn. Ready, set, comment!

If you’re not the cooking-Thanksgiving-dinner type–or if you just want to fool everyone into thinking you are–Philly’s food scene is down to help you out. There are plenty of places out there willing to supply you with everything you need to convince your friends and loved ones that you know how to use your oven for something more than warming your pants on winter mornings.
And if you do want to cook the turkey, then there are also places to get your fresh, heritage turkey needs filled by local farms and stores.
Check it all out below. And remember: Many of these places need a significant amount of advance notice, so pre-order now and don't get caught scrambling later.

I’ve decided to call the area around Callowhill between 18th and 22nd Whole Foods Squared, since there will be two Whole Foods within mere blocks of each other, one of which will be on Rodin Square. It’s one of those invented sub-neighborhood names that will surely take off. At least on this blog.
At any rate, the newest addition to the WFS ’hood will be a hot yoga studio at 1828 Callowhill, around the corner from WF#1, where yoga mats and refillable bottles are on sale.
And with 293 luxury apartments opening just blocks away, I'd say Priya Hot Yoga's owners have the right idea.
“There’s a lot of great energy in that neighborhood,” co-owner Katie Sandy told Be Well Philly. “I think it’s just a very positive neighborhood, and we thought it could use something like this.”
Sandy and has two business partners in the venture, whose 2,200-square-foot space will also include a sit-down cafe. Smart, smart, smart.
