Sprouts HaulΒ 

Today I am quickly sharing the items I picked up at Sprouts this week! I love shopping at Sprouts, because they have so many unique and healthy items that are sometimes hard to find in regular grocery stores. I also always love the produce quality they have. 

Typically I shop there for items and produce that are on sale. Most of the fruit and veggies I pick up are always the ones on sale! It is not the main store I use for the majority of my groceries, but I love going there. I always check the Sprouts ad on their app and also scan the coupons there. That is an easy way for me to make a list of things I want and SAVE money! 

This week I mostly went to Sprouts to browse and pick up snacks and quick breakfast items. Everything I got is below. What are some of your favorite Sprouts/ heath food items? If you have any questions on the items I got here just let me know in the comments below!☺️ Cliff bars and a great grab and go item for me. I especially love that they made mostly made of oats which in my opinion helps with milk production, and since I am nursing that is important to me. Love Lenny & Larry’s cookies! The fact that they are soy free, vegan and high in protein is awesome. The white chocolate macadamia flavor is my favorite. You can’t go wrong with the bulk bins for beans & rice. We don’t buy much meat, but when I do get some for Tommy I try and get the best quality I can. This was my first time trying Cedar’s hummus. Love it! The lemon flavor is great. It is bright and just a little tart. I ate the whole thing in 3 days with my multi grain/ seed tortilla chips. Alexia frozen fries…faves!!! 😍All of these items above were all on sale this week. Like I said, I tend to buy what’s on sale! Lastly the organic sweet potato and the avocados were for making Ben’s baby food!

10 Of My Favorite Plant Based Items at CostcoΒ 

These are 10 of my favorite plant based vegan items to buy at Costco. I’ve noticed Costco has a wide variety of organic items at great prices which is awesome. Also, a lot of items like some of these are not labeled vegan, but if you read the labels you can see that they are. 

So I love shopping at Costco. Let’s just ignore that fact that usually you leave Costco with a least a couple of things that you didn’t plan on getting, but then you find that you obviously need them in your life so you buy them! Another perk, Costco is one of the few stores my husband, Tommy, actually enjoys shopping at so it’s a win-win for us. 

1. Cooked Quinoa & Brown Rice Packs

 Above are these quick and easy quinoa & brown rice packs. They are a quick meal to have with a side of veggies or a salad. I also love topping them with avocado and sriracha. 

2. Onion “Everything” Bagels & Cinnamon Raisin Bagels 

These bagels are just delicious. Not all flavors are vegan, but these are. We like them toasted with some Earth Balance Vegan butter. Also, I slice them in half and freeze them in gallon freezer bags to keep fresh. When we want one I just put it in the toaster oven. 

3. Fruit 

I don’t think all of the fruit is a good deal, but I usually get bananas and avocados at Costco. I definitely go ahead an freeze my peeled bananas once they are ripe and use them in smoothies. Bonus: frozen fruit bags for smoothies are a great deal. 

4. Greens 

Organic salad greens are a great price at Costco. I love getting romaine lettuce, baby spinach or spring mix greens. Bonus: Frozen veggies like organic broccoli are a good price too.

5. Uncooked Tortilas 

These tortillas taste great and are way better than prepackaged flour tortillas. They are not as good as my moms homemade tortillas of course, but they will do sometimes! 

6. Salsa 

This salsa tastes homemade! I love the charred flavor and the chunks of tomatoes and peppers. It is really spicy so be careful if that’s not your thing. We love it. 

7. Orange Juice 

We don’t drink juice often, but sometimes a little orange juice is nice in the morning. There are usually several varieties to choose from. 

8. Dave’s Killer Bread 

I love the ingredients in this bread. It has a great flavor and has 5 grams of protein per slice, and it comes in a 2 pack. I will stick one in the freezer and pull it out a week or two later when we need it. 

9. Peanut Butter & Jelly 

Both of these have minimal ingredients which I love. They are perfect for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the Dave’s bread. I also love this peanut butter in Thai style peanut noodles. The peanut butter comes in a 2 pack, and I love finding these on sale at Costco sometimes. 

10. Chia Seeds 

Costco is a great place to get a large bag of chia seeds cheaper than most other stores. I make chia lemon water or add them to my smoothies or oatmeal. 

There you go, those are 10 of my favorite plant Based Items to buy at Costco. What are some of your favorites? I’d love to know so feel free to share below in the comments.
