Grocery Store Finds with Chef Julie Harrington, RD @ChefJulie_RD

I’m loving the interaction in my Instagram stories about my Grocery Store Finds series. A few of the items featured today are suggestions from you. Thank you, readers, for opening my eyes to new Grocery Store Finds. Let’s keep the conversation going in the comment section too!

Now, let’s get to the items that were in my grocery cart this month!

Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit

One Zespri SunGold kiwifruit provides a generous hit of the vitamin C we need to help strengthen the body’s natural defenses.  More than three times the amount found in oranges, in fact. SunGold kiwis are sweeter than conventional kiwis and even get sweeter as they ripen. Their skin is also smoother and thinner than a typical kiwifruit, so don’t waste your time peeling it, just bite right in!

Tasty Bite Brown Rice

Tasty Bite’s steamable brown rice pouches were brought to my attention from reader Kelly G. Thanks for emailing me about these! I found them in the grocery store and I checked out the ingredient list and nutrition facts and it looks like these are going to be making a common appearance in my cart. With just water, organic whole grain brown rice, and organic sunflower oil, these are a convenient item to keep stocked in your pantry whenever you need a quick whole grain.

Beyond Meet Crumbles

A couple of years back I told you about Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burgers as a plant-based alternative. For your next taco night opt for Beyond Meat’s other product like Beyond Beef Crumbles. With 13 g of plant-based protein per serving opt for a meatless option, or go half-and-half with Beyond Beef Crumbles and beef. Plus, already seasoned, you don’t have to worry about that extra step in the cooking process.

Barilla Chickpea Pasta

There is a new legume-based pasta on the block! Barilla just came out with both chickpea and red lentil pasta. Just one simple ingredient, chickpeas! (or red lentils, if choosing the red lentil variety). One 2-oz. serving of the chickpea pasta has 13 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. Casarecce is a shorter pasta noodle that appears to be rolled upon itself with a groove down the middle. This shape pairs well with a clingy kind of sauce like pesto.

Fiber One Strawberries 
& Vanilla Clusters

General Mills recently came out with a new Fiber One cereal variety. They sent me a box to try, but the cereal monster in my house ate the whole box only after I tried one handful. I’m glad this new variety hit the shelves so I was able to buy it myself to enjoy. Just one cup of cereal provides 35% daily value of fiber.

Let’s get shopping! Comment below of new products you are loving lately.
