Ways to my Heart 

Saw this quote while shopping at the new Whole Foods in DTLA. I couldn’t agree more. 😂

If you haven’t checked out this location you must go now. I know some of you will say it’s just Whole Foods BUT trust me, this one is amazing! It’s huge! They have everything including a  barbecue station, a restaurant with full bar, and even Chego! You will occasionally see Roy Choi serving a Chubby Pork Belly Bowl.

Parking is plentiful as they have 170+ dedicated spaces for shoppers.
