Take a look at what grocery store finds ended up in this dietitian’s cart this month.
How it already the end of May? This month has been quite a whirlwind. I was working on a bunch of recipe development projects which had me at the grocery store almost every other day, but I was laser-focused on the items that I needed to grab for the recipes. A few other items did end up in my grocery cart that has helped me get through this hectic month that I think you’ll enjoy!
Quaker Overnight Oats
Yes, it is very easy to make your own overnight oats, but I give an A+ for convenience. Rolling into the summer months means a lot of road trips, vacations, and weekend adventures. Having a quick and easy breakfast will save you money instead of eating out but also start your day with something hearty and with long-lasting energy. They do have flavored varieties, but I like sticking to the unsweetened with chia seeds. I like to pair with a travel pack nut/seed butter and some fruit.
Carrington Farms Flax Chia Packets
Speaking about traveling and being on the go, these Carrington Farms Flax Chia packets are a simple way to include heart-healthy omega-3s and fiber into your day. I always have a couple of these in my purse. Sprinkle or mix in with just about anything. (You can even sprinkle it into the oatmeal above!)
Wild Planet Wild Sockeye Salmon
Looking to incorporate more seafood into your diet? Eating seafood two to three times per week reduces the risk of death from any health-related cause by 17 percent. Wild Planet’s sockeye salmon is canned fresh upon catch (rather than being frozen before canning), which results in superior flavor and texture. Top on a salad for lunch, turn into salmon cakes or enjoy with crackers. This is an affordable and convenient way to incorporate more seafood.
HI! Happy Inside Cereal
Happy Inside is a cereal that supports digestive wellness with a 3-in-1 medley of prebiotics, probiotics, and fiber. In combination with new research, The WK Kellogg Institute for Food and Nutrition spent two years researching the microbiome, and realized probiotics alone aren’t enough. That’s why they created HI! Happy Inside, plant-based breakfast foods and snacks crafted with prebiotics, probiotics, and fiber. I like to enjoy this cereal with milk or on top of yogurt.
