What’s in My Grocery Basket?

Hey friends! Did you read my Resolutions post? You should! It’s a bit long, but (hopefully) inspirational as you map out your year of healthy eating, moving, and thinking.

And let’s not forget healthy shopping!

I haven’t done a grocery post in a while because my shopping has been all over the map since Thanksgiving/Christmas/Anniversary/New Years time.

Today I did a legit, home-fridge-only shop and here are some of the items I picked up!


Organic Spring Mix. I bought this strictly on principle. The price was a steal at $3.99 for a POUND of greens! Heck yes!

Wholesome Choice: $3.99/lb.
Trader Joe’s: $1.99/bag
Whole Foods: $3.99/bag

Grassfed Chuck Roast. I decided to bust out another cookbook recipe. This time, I’m trying Juli Bauer’s Ropa Vieja from her //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ss&ref=ss_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=heavandheal-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=0985956240&asins=0985956240&linkId=O26ODZN34SN3COAC&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true” target=”_blank”>OMG That’s Paleo? cookbook. It’s also on her webby so click on the link!

WC: $5.49/lb.

Caribbean Papaya. Also know as the sweet nectar of the gods. I had one last week and it was soooooo amazing. I obviously had to buy another one.

WC: $3.82 for 1 ($2.96/lb.)
TJ: $3.29 for 1

Jackson’s Honest Mango Chili Lime Potato Chips. I’m really digging this company for it’s dedication to quality ingredients. How many chip makers out there use non-industrial seed oils? How about… ONE. This one. Jackson’s Honest Chips are a great contribution to the packaged food world. One small issue… I actually don’t particularly like the coconut oil flavor on the chips This is really tragic since I like to avoid the sunflower/safflower/canola crap. Give them a try and see if you like it!

WC: $4.49

Muir Glen Organic Diced Tomatoes. For the Ropa Vieja

WC: $1.79
TJ: $1.49
WF: $2.49

Organic Cauliflower. I NEVER buy cauliflower. Not sure why, but this paleo staple is remarkably absent from my basket most months. But since I’m following a recipe tonight, I’m also following Juli’s side dish recommendation. Cuban-Style “Rice”.

WC: $3.59/each
TJ: $2.49/each (not organic)
WF: I once paid 8 dollars for a cauliflower at WF. Never again.

Spice Hunter Vanilla Extract. I ran out and that’s a problem because I use it all the time for things like cashew milk, coffee fudge, paleo granola, coconut coffee creamer, etc.

WC: $4.49/2 oz.
TJ: $4.99/2 oz.

Something Pure Coconut Oil. I used the last of my coconut oil last night. And at this price, I definitely sprang for the giant jar. Haven’t ever seen this brand before but looking forward to testing it out.

WC: $11.99/32 oz.
TJ: $5.99/16 oz.
WF: $6.99/16 oz.
