Grocery Store Finds with Chef Julie Harrington, RD @ChefJulie_RD #dietitian #personalshopper #healthy #rdapproved

At the end of October, every year more than 10,000 nutrition professionals and food industry executives gathered in Philadelphia for the annual Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE®) hosted by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. It’s like the super bowl for dietitians. I spent most of my time at the expo hall, networking, and presenting for the first time.

As I wandered around the expo hall, there were a few trends that kept on popping up. Here are a few items that I was introduced to that I saw at the grocery store the next time I went grocery shopping.

Moon Cheese

Hello cheese lovers! Moon Cheese is for you. Moon Cheese is 100% natural cheese containing all the goodness of cheese and is a perfect on-the-go healthy snack with no refrigeration required! Enjoy Moon Cheese as is or add it on top of a salad for a savory crunch. My personal flavor is gouda!

Simple Mills Soft Baked Almond Flour Bars

Are there any brands that keep coming out with new product lines that just never disappoint you? Simple Mills is one of those brands for me. Now they have soft-baked almond flour bars.  These bars are made with whole food ingredients that make up the satisfying blend of textures. The pieces of nuts, seeds, and fruit blend with the soft-baked bar create a satisfying texture. All four bars varieties are naturally sweetened with honey & molasses.

Biena Chickpea Puffs

Biena, known for their crunchy chickpea snacks, now have a new product line, baked chickpea puffs. Plant-based protein snacks were a big buzz through the expo hall. While this is still a snack, it adds 7 grams of plant protein and 30% fewer carbs per serving than traditional chip-type snacks.

Rose Balsamic Vinegar

This rose balsamic vinegar was not a find from FNCE, but I couldn’t help myself when I saw it on the shelves at Whole Foods. This will take vinaigrettes up to the next level.

Siete Chickpea Flour Wraps

More plant-based proteins made an appearance but in the form of a wrap this time. Siete created a tortilla with chickpeas and olive oil, but don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like a pita! Their chickpea tortilla is ultra pliable and behaves and tastes suspiciously like a flour tortilla.
