I went to four grocery stores today. FOUR.
To be fair, for the past couple weeks, we’ve had a good reserve of staple foods in the house so I haven’t had to do a “big shop” for us in a while. We finally worked our way through most of our fresh produce and meat (except for the salami log from last week).
All that being said, brace yourself for a LONG post.
Extra Vigin Coconut Oil
TJ: $2.79/ 2 lbs.
WC: $.38 for 1.5 lb.
TJ: $.69/ea medium-sized
Hatch Valley Salsa. Looked yummy to add to some crispy pork or a salad!
HOT Pico de Gallo
Bacon Ends and Pieces. The best bacon EVER and the most economical choice out there.
WF: $10.99 lb. (in-house)
TJ: $1.49/3 bulbs
Organic Lemons. For my husband’s new original drink, Lemon Basil Old Fashioned
WF: $.89 ea.
Organic Mushrooms. For my salads!
TJ: $2.29/8 oz.
Organic Beets. Also for salads.
Candy Cane Green Tea (decaf). YAYYYYYY!!!! It’s BAAAAACK! Pro tip: So yummy with some homemade almond milk.
Butternut Squash. More salad ingredients!
TJ: $1.79 ea. (about 3 lbs.)
Organic Green Peppers. Always get peppers ORGANIC! They are dirty, dirty veggies.
TJ: $2.49 for 2
Pork Shoulder. Another big guy for the crock pot! Kalua Pig for my belly!
Family Pack Organic Chicken Thighs.
Baba Ghanouj. Impulse buy. I love a good Baba every now and then. Thought I could include it in a salami lettuce wrap or something…
Parsnips. Making a Tomato and Roasted Fennel Soup for my husband. It’s his favorite and he always has to tell me when stuff is his favorite because I rarely make the same recipe twice.
BioNature Canned Whole Tomatoes
Jimbos: $2.99/28 oz.
SunFood Raw Organic Cacao Butter. I had a wild idea to make Paleo Blondies using cacao butter instead of regular chocolate! Recipe later 😉
Sprouts: 2 for $4.00
Jimbos: 3 for $5.00
WF: 42.49 ea.
Organic Romaine Hearts
Sprouts: 3 pk. for $2.99
Organic Green Onions
Purple Sweet Potatoes. So delicious! Go get some now!
Jimbos: $2.39/lb. (ouch)
Theo Chocolate Bar. Necessity.
Jimbos: $2.49 (best deal I’ve seen so far)
Pasture Perfect Ground Beef. I was so excited to find it here also. More expensive than Wholesome Choice though…
Steve’s Ice Cream, Mint Cacao Chip. I’ve been wanting to try this ice cream for a LOOOOONG time. But I’ve had a hard time justifying the expense and sugar load. Fortunately for me, Sprouts had it on sale. Steve’s has some amazing looking flavors. Some are dairy based and some are dairy-free. Check out their site! This dairy-free and is made with fresh mint and chocolate-covered cacao nibs.
