PCC Grocery Haul

Hey friends!

I have another fun grocery haul post for you! I have been working with Traina PR and ProYo Frozen Yogurt to help spread the word about an AMAZING protein packed frozen yogurt product (review coming soon!). ProYo is stocked in our local Seattle/North West PCC Natural Foods but unfortunately I don’t shop there often as it is a little far from me. So I figured while I was there I would shop around and pick up some items I needed!

PCC Market is unique to the Northwest – Seattle Area. They are similar to Whole Foods but on a smaller scale. They focus on more local products and showcase small businesses vs. large corporations. Like I mentioned above, I normally do not shop there as it is a little far from me but yesterday reminded me why I love it there! I will probably make it a habit to shop there more often now! 🙂

I forgot my re-usable bags – bummer! But I will make good use of the paper bags 😉

PCC has AMAZING produce! Mostly Organic and as local as possible. I picked up some carrots (these suckers are HUGE!), brussel sprouts, a POM, cilantro, cameo apples, green bananas, lettuce, Japanese sweet potatoes, avocado, red bell pepper, yellow onion and collard greens.

Some “healthy” snacks and dinner options: Larabars, sprouted bread, root chips, sparkling water, plain yogurt, ground turkey and chicken breasts, veggie patties and fresh pasta.

These are two fun items I picked up that I have never tried before! Chez Marie veggie patties and Rising Moon Organic four cheese tortelloni! I will let you know how they taste! 😉

I picked Jordan up some fun “healthy” food too! Natures Path Amazon Flakes, Earth’s Best Organic Waffles, strawberry honey yogurt, Annies Mac n’ Cheese, Z-Bar fruit snacks, vitamins and some cute finger puppets. 😉

Some other fun finds:

PCC makes their own granola – and while I usually make my own, this was calling name!

Goji Berries for the WIN!

I also picked up a 6 pack of Blue Sky soda. I should have read the ingredients BEFORE buying it as there is caramel color in it. I don’t drink soda normally… but everyone once in a while it just sounds good! I thought this would be OK to have on hand. And these will probably last the entire year, too! lol

I also found a premium dog food, AvoDerm, for our dog that has avocado in it! Great for her coat and skin!

And of course an new magazine to read – I just love magazines!

Did you go grocery shopping this week? If so, did you find and fun finds?

Have a beautiful and healthy day!

Grocery Haul

I love showing you what I buy at the grocery store. It is one of my most requested blog post topics! I tend to buy the same food over and over {I love my staples!} but this is a great learning tool for every one that needs clean eating inspiration and to really see what you should be buying.

Most people want to eat healthier but they simply do not know where to start. Learning how to shop again is like learning how to walk again. There will be temptation to reach for a bag of chips, a box of cookies or that tempting dessert from the bakery. With time and dedication, these temptations will no longer be an issue. It will become instinctive to buy healthy items so your kitchen is fully stocked with healthy food for you and your family to enjoy.

I buy a lot of fresh produce, especially in the summer. I eat a very high raw diet {which is the cleanest and healthiest for you!} and my son LOVES all kinds of fresh fruit. He eats a very high raw diet as well.

As you can see there is a ton of variety here. I was out of most of my produce so I had to stock up again. I do try to buy all organic if it is available. And remember to carry a list of the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen around with you – this helps you prioritize between organic and non-organic.

Produce – cauliflower, organic apples, grapefruit, red bell pepper, red onion, bananas, kale, celery, cucumber, strawberries, figs, apricots, nectarines, spinach and a huge watermelon.

grocery

Frozen fruit for smoothies, natural peanut butter, maple syrup, ground turkey, canned beans, rice crackers, semi sweet chocolate chips, salsa, kalamata olives and dark chocolate.

I do buy Jordan some fun stuff. Trader Joes has a great selection of healthy food for kids. Keep in mind that he eats a diet very high in raw foods and low processed foods. Fun foods will last him quite a while as I make sure to balance everything. Macaroni and Cheese, Joe’s O’s {like spaghetti O’s but MUCH better}, toaster waffles, applesauce packets, yogurt, corn dogs {he loves corn dogs!}

grocery (3)

I also stopped at Whole Foods for a few items: gluten free bread, bulk beans and grains {in the paper bags}, almonds, tamari {gluten free soy sauce}, bars for me and Jordan and natural graham cereal for Jordan.

grocery (5)    
This was the first time I picked up this gluten free bread and it’s very good! I don’t eat a lot of bread so this loaf will last me 3 weeks or so in the fridge. Gluten free bread can be pricey {this loaf was over 5$} but since it lasts me so long I think it’s very reasonable. 

So there you go! This shopping trip was last weekend and I am needing to head to the market again this week. I will be sure to keep posting my grocery hauls for you to see!

Healthy Eating!
