I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Amazon has bought Whole Foods. What are your thoughts on the future of grocery shopping? I’m really intrigued of what’s to come!
This month I did most of my shopping at Whole Foods and Dean’s Natural Market. Any time I stroll through both of those stores, something new always ends up in my cart.
My birthday is in June and Dean’s helped me celebrate my birthday all month with 1/2 off Health-Ade ALL MONTH. This is hands down my favorite kombucha. I am still on the hunt for the Blood Orange-Carrot-Ginger and Reishi Chocolate flavors. Follow your gut and try Health-Ade. Health-Ade is the only commercial kombucha fermented 100% in glass to prevent plastic and metal leaching and it’s hand-crafted in super-small 2.5 gallon batches for premium quality. Kombucha is fermented tea, that naturally contains probiotics, which is great for gut health.
I was lucky to win Joy, Food, Sunshine’s Barney Butter contest. I was SO excited when this package arrived at my doorstep. I am a true nut butter lover. There is pretty much not a day without nut butter being part of a meal of snack. Each almond butter blend packs in a ton of flavor without a ton of added sugar. Barney Butter is regularly available in grocery stores. I just got my hands on their single serve packs. Perfect for traveling!
I don’t buy marinara very often because my family always makes it from scratch and there is always some stored in my freezer, but I was completely out! When I was strolling the aisles at Dean’s this jar caught my eye because it was locally (to me) made in Hoboken, NJ. Made with simple ingredients, this packs in great flavor. It’s not grandma’s gravy, but I will definitely be buying again.
Have you seen Hippeas? I was craving a crunchy snack and these chickpea puffs were pretty good. They reminded me of a healthier Cheeto. I cannot even remember the last time I ate one of those. The white cheddar flavor was subtle, but it curbed my crunchy snack craving. I think it’s pretty cool companies are finding creative ways to add more pulses into foods.
Bob’s Red Mill
Bob’s Red Mill never fails me. I love these little to-go cups with no sugar added and it has flax and chia already added in. These have been lifesavers for eating on the go and also for traveling. Pair with some fruit and a PB packet, you have yourself a filling meal.
