Let’s take a peek what ended up in my grocery cart this month.
A blog reader (Hi Casey!) asked if I plan out my grocery finds in advance. The answer is no. I like to see what I come across that month and share some products that I love or new to me that I like to share with all of you. I enjoy learning about different products and their brand’s stories. It just so happens that 3 of these picks are from the dairy aisle this month.
GoMacro is a family-owned company in the pursuit of health as a path of living in ourselves and nature with products that have a positive effect on the world. MacroBars are cold-pressed, nut-butter based bars. Made from simple, clean ingredients, all MacroBars are certified vegan, gluten-free, organic, R.A.W., C.L.E.A.N., kosher and non-GMO project verified. They have a combination of high-protein and plant-based ingredients that serve as the perfect way to keep you fueled throughout the day. So far, my favorites are the Balanced Goodness (granola + coconut) and Everlasting Joy (coconut + almond butter + chocolate chips).

Fairlife milk uses a patented cold-filtration process (the same process that removes impurities from water). The milk from Fairlife’s dairy farms flows through soft filters, filtering into five components (water, butterfat, protein, vitamins & minerals, lactose) and then recombine them in different proportions. The end result milk is concentrated with protein, more calcium, less sugar, and lactose-free. I’ve been using fairlife in my morning smoothies now instead of almond milk and the extra protein, I’ve noticed has kept me fuller, longer.
Chobani just came out with a new line – Chobani Smooth. Chobani was kind enough to send over some samples for me to try. It has a smoother and lighter texture than traditional Greek yogurt. The new Chobani Smooth yogurts are made with only natural ingredients, 25% less sugar, and twice the protein. I love that this new line uses no artificial flavors or sweeteners. This yogurt would be the perfect start for someone trying to transition from regular yogurt to Greek yogurt (more protein!) as the texture is light and smooth like regular yogurt. I enjoy the variety of flavors so I can go with whatever flavor I am craving that day.
Cabot Cracker Cut Slices:
Cabot has made snacking even more convenient. Now they sell their delicious cheddar pre-sliced. I don’t know about you, but I can never get the slices very even when I slice it from the large block. The cracker cut slices make preparing party patter and quick snacks super simple. The packaging is easily resealable to keep cheese fresh in between uses.
