I know, I know.. technically it’s already January 2018. I took some time off the past two weeks to enjoy time with my friends and family during the holiday season. When I sat down this morning to plan out my week ahead, I noticed I never finished writing this post. These new items for my Grocery Store Finds are coming to you fashionably late.

88 Acres Pumpkin Seed Butter:

I learned about 88 acres a couple years ago when they first launched. Working with children in cooking classes, food allergies are always a concern, with nuts being the most common food allergies among the students I have worked with. I started swapping in 88 Acres pumpkin seed and sunflower seed butters when any of my recipes called for nut butter. All of 88 Acres products are nut free. Anyone who has a food allergy knows how challenging it can be at times. 88 Acres is making that much simpler for you with their products being allergen friendly.
88 Acres is sharing the love with YOU and providing you with a 15% discount on all orders from their online store. Just use the code RDELISH (all caps) at checkout! 

Food for Life – Ezekiel 4:9 Cereal:

I’ve been on a total yogurt kick lately. I love adding a crunch to my yogurt and wanted to switch it up from my typical nuts/seeds or granola, so this Ezekiel cereal caught my eye. I tried their bread before, but never their cereal. They kind of remind me of grape nuts. I like the additional crunch they provide. Plus, the real winner is, when I topped my yogurt and berries with them for the next day, they didn’t get soggy! Did I forget to tell you, they also have <1 gram of sugar too!


Grocery Store Finds via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_Kitchen - Halos #orange #citrus #snack #vitaminC
If you follow me on Instagram, you know my love for Halos. Halos are different than clementines, as they are California mandarins. I’ve noticed they are much easier to peel, as the rind begins to break away from the sweet little segments as they ripen. Halos are in their peak season (November – April), so don’t miss out on this prime time! They have been my go-to snack mid-afternoon when I am usually craving something a little sweet! I’ve even noticed Halos are now being sold in Starbucks with two in a pack. I love that these options are readily available.

Trader Joe’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup:

I typically always make my own soup, but I bought this soup a while ago and saw it sitting in my pantry. One night I was in need of a quick dinner, so it was tomato soup and a grilled cheese (made with Dave’s Killer Bread). I was pleasantly surprised! Yes, the sodium was higher than I would have liked it to be, but overall had good taste. 6.5/10 I would buy again. I always keep items like this in the pantry for really quick dinner or in a pinch when I haven’t gone grocery shopping or meal prepped. I just prefer my own homemade soups 🙂

Peanut butter and jelly is the classic lunchbox favorite, especially for picky eaters, but what if you now are unable to bring peanut butter into school because it’s a peanut free zone?

Peanuts and tree nuts are part of the top 8 food allergens. It’s a major concern for schools to be cautionary for their students, that they often make the school a peanut-free school zone.

What do you do with your picky eater now? When I was younger, I would pack a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a piece of fruit every single day to school. It was quick and easy for my mom to prepare and I was a happy camper.

Enter: SunButter – a sunflower seed spread. SunButter is a peanut and tree nut free alternative to peanut butter. Plus, it’s free of other food allergens making it a very child friendly choice.

SunButter is made similar to a nut butter. They roast the sunflower seeds to make a more bold flavor and blend them into a spread. You can simply use SunButter for a “SunButter & Jelly” sandwich or check out this recipe section to try other creations.

SunButter also provides a little bit of a different nutrition profile compared to it’s nut butter counterparts. They contain 1/3 less saturated fat than peanut butter. SunButter also has double the fiber, the same amount of protein, more vitamin E and no trans fats.  SunButter is also high in iron, phosphorus, and zinc.
