I love Whole Foods.
I love Trader Joes.
No joke. I am in love with them. Unfortunately, the closest ones to me are an hour and a half away. So when I go, I stock up. These are literally the closest places I can get dairy-free cream cheese, butter, and coconut milk yogurt. I’m lucky the grocery stores in my town carry almond and soy milk. : /
Anyway, last week I got the opportunity to go to these two fabulous stores, so I thought I’d dedicate a post to some of my favorite things (not all though- that’d be a long post!) from these two stores, as well as some new things I discovered this trip!
Beverages! Coconut water (this time, chocolate flavor!) and Kombucha. Both these drinks are too expensive to drink all the time, but I only go to Whole Foods about once a month, So I like to treat myself!
Coconut yogurt. I buy this stuff by the case. (Which gives me a 30% discount at Whole Foods!) My most recent trip it was on sale, So I bought a ton! My favorite flavor is chocolate. It’s like chocolate pudding. But I can get away with eating it for breakfast!
Earth Balance, my favorite vegan buttery spread of all time. Nothing beats this stuff. And since they don’t sell it at my grocery store, I buy the tub that’s as big as my head.
Ice Cream. I have a hard time keeping this frozen in the car, but I bring a cooler full of ice with me. I’m dedicated. I love love love So Delicious coconut ice cream, and this time I bought some Rice carrot cake ice cream as well. Uh Mah Zing. Tastes just like carrot cake. Don’t know how they do it. And of course, my all time favorite ice cream, Trader Joe’s Chocolate Cherry Chip.
Trader Joe’s Salsa Chips. I cannot get enough of these. I could probably eat a whole bag in one sitting. They taste just like salsa. If that comment was even needed.
Chips! I know Trader Joe’s is technically considered a health food store, but for some reason I come out of it with a cart full of junk food. Baked onion rings, Flaxseed tortilla chips, and veggie chips are some more of my favorite chips from TJ’s.
And last but not least, a few TJ’s staples. First, Frozen Fruit. Berries, mango, pineapple, it’s all so cheap! Once again, this has to ride in the cooler in my car. Second, Veggie corn dogs. These taste just like the real deal. And lastly, yogurt cheese. It’s made with cow’s milk, but it’s lactose free!
So, there you go. Now mind you, this isn’t everything that I buy at Trader Joes and Whole Foods, but they’re some of my favorites!
What are your favorite stores to shop at? Do you go to Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods? What are some of your favorite products?
