Grocery Store Finds: September 2018

There are so many new products hitting the shelves soon. This dietitian has the inside scoop.

Grocery Store Finds with Chef Julie Harrington, RD @ChefJulie_RD #dietitian #healthy #grocerystore #groceryshopping #nutrition

This is the first-ever Grocery Store Finds post, where I haven’t actually tried the products yet myself. Last month was Expo East and was hoping to get there, but my schedule was already booked with cooking classes and other events. I vicariously was following the #expoeast on Instagram and seeing all these new products that were announced and soon to hit the shelves if they haven’t already.

Maybe it’s the dietitian in me, but when I see a new product, I am intrigued. Some of these brands you probably have heard of before, but they are expanding their product lines with new items.


Wild Friends Nut Butter with Collagen


Wild Friends with Collagen Peptides


Wild Friends partnered with Vital Proteins, makers of high-quality, grass-fed collagen products, to make these nutrient-dense nut butter. Why did they choose collagen? Collagen is a vital building block of our hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but as we age, the production decreases. Incorporating collagen into your diet can encourage natural collagen production and has been shown to promote healthy cartilage, joint and bone health, skin tone and elasticity, increased athletic performance, gut health, and deeper sleep. One serving of Wild Friends Collagen Nut Butter packs in 8 grams of protein per serving. The second I see this in my grocery store, it will for sure end up in my cart.

Chosen Foods Vegan Mayo


Chosen Foods Vegan Mayo

Vegan mayo? How is that even possible. Right on the jar, it says that it is made with avocado oil, but that is liquid. I did a little research and found out how they make a spreadable consistency. The magic is aquafaba! Aquafaba is the liquid leftover from soaking or cooking garbanzo beans. The water absorbs proteins and starches from the beans, becoming more viscous along the way. Its viscosity is similar to that of eggs and egg whites, making aquafaba the perfect egg substitute. Chosen Foods blends aquafaba with avocado oil, to create a 100% vegan mayo that can truly be described as plant-based. Use this mayo as you normally would – on sandwiches, wraps, or as a base for sauces and dressings.

Health Warrior Protein Muffin


Health Warrior Protein Muffin


A protein muffin made in 60 seconds – I’m intrigued! I was very excited to see sorghum listed at the first ingredient. Sorghum is, a cereal grain native to Asia and Africa, that is naturally gluten-free, packed with protein and fiber, and full of antioxidants like policosanols. They use pumpkin seed protein to add extra protein for a quick and filling breakfast or snack.

Cece’s Veggie Noodle Co. 


Cece's Veggie Noodle Co


Cece’s Veggie Noodle Co. has expanded its line beyond veggie noodles. They now have rice varieties and veggie-packed meals. What I like about these are that they are fresh and super convenient. I don’t know about you, but have you ever tried spiralizing a beet? It looks like a murder scene on my cutting board. Take a short cut and utilize these conveniently prepped veggies.

Soozy’s Muffins


Soozy's Muffins


Find Soozy’s Muffins in the frozen aisle. Soozy’s Muffins are made with all-natural, unprocessed ingredients, and are free from gluten, grains, soy, dairy, GMOs, fillers, stabilizers, and additives. Enjoy these muffins for breakfast, for dessert or as a snack. It’s convenient, easy, tasty, and goes well with your morning coffee, afternoon tea or a tall glass of milk at any time of the day.

I’ve gone to many groceries this month, including ShopRite, Whole Foods, Wegmans, and Trader Joe’s.  I honestly didn’t purposely go to so many this month, but every time I needed to grab something at the store I was near one of them. It’s always like a treasure hunt finding new items to feature. I’m excited to share what I have discovered this month!
Thank you to all of you who have tagged me on Instagram and Instagram stories letting me know about the products you’ve tried from these Grocery Store Finds posts! Keep ’em coming!

You guys know I love Besty’s Best gourmet nut butter. Right now, Besty’s Best is only at the Wegman’s near me. I don’t get to that store as often, but when I saw this on the shelves, I just had to buy it! The cashew butter with cardamom and chia seeds are out of this world! The pop of cardamom flavor is definitely unique in a nut butter and delicious! I’ve been adding a dollop to my hot oatmeal lately. It gets all warm and drippy.

Trader Joes: Matcha Green Tea – Single Serve Packets

I am a coffee lover through and through, but sometimes changing up my routine is refreshing. These little single-serving packets I found a Trader Joe’s are so convenient. I followed this guide to make a matcha green tea latte right at home.

Pamela’s Nut Flour Blend

Grocery Store Finds from a Registered Dietitians via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_Kitchen #rdchat #rdapproved #wellness #supermarket #grocery #healthy #dietitian Pamela's Nut Flour Blend #glutenfree #nutflour #lowcarbI was super intrigued when Pamela’s reached out to see if I wanted to try their new nut flour blend. Pamela’s Nut Flour Blend offers a unique variety of almond meal, coconut flour, pecan flour and walnut flour making it a great source of fiber and protein.I often use coconut flour and almond flour in my recipe creations. I love the idea of adding pecan flour and walnut flour. I’ve never tried either of those before. The blend is free from grains, gluten, dairy, soy, egg, and corn making it vegan and paleo-friendly and a pantry staple for specialty-diets. The Nut Flour Blend can be used in a variety of ways from simple breading to pie crusts, smoothie bowls, yogurt toppings and more! Stay tuned for a recipe that used this flour. I’ve been playing around with one, but I think I can make it better. Make sure to check back!

Trader Joe’s Corn and Chile Salsa

Trader Joe’s Corn & Chile Tomato-less Salsa has become a staple in my pantry. It’s delicious to simply eat with chips, but we like adding as a topping for our taco nights. It’s sweet with a hint of spice.

Chickpea Crumbs

Watusee Chickpea Crumbs are amazing and can be used like any other breadcrumb, but adds extra nutritional benefit with simply one ingredient – chickpeas. The texture is more of a coarse texture like panko breadcrumbs. I’ve breaded chicken cutlets with these chickpea breadcrumbs and baked in the oven.

I stopped by Betsy’s Best booth at FNCE this year on the expo floor and I was blown away by the flavor of these nut & seed butters. Each variety has chia seeds mixed right in. I usually top my peanut butter toast with chia seeds in the morning, so this takes away that extra step! Plus, the extra addition of cinnamon or cardamom added in makes it extra delicious.
