Sprouts Vs. Trader Joe’s

20110918-102049.jpg

I love trying new foods. I went to Sprouts Farmers Market. I like the fresh bulk foods. They had every thing from almonds to lentils.The vitamin department is great. It’s like a mini GNC. The rest of the store was nice but lacked variety. I found new products that I haven’t seen at other stores which I love. I’ll review those later when I use them. Overall I think the store was nice but not on a regular basis. As a working mom I need a store that has a variety of foods. I’m looking for convenience. I only have time to shop at one store. I do like their magazine. Trader Joe’s wins this one for me but Sprouts is nice to visit.

Grocery Shopping Is So Much Easier When Your Eating Clean!

I am trying to go to the less processed side when it comes to food.  Clean eating is my new goal. I go to the grocery store more often but I spend much less time in the store.  I go more because I need my fresh fruits and veggies. if I had more time I could live like the French and go to market daily. It is advised to shop the perimeter  of the store and I really do. I even skip whole aisles. I don’t do chips. I no longer spend time reading labels trying to guess the best chip. I don’t need them and if I do I can make them fresh.  Baked sweet potato chips are awesome. I spend little time in the canned food aisle .I buy canned organic tomatoes by the bulk. I stick to fresh or frozen veggies and beans. The frozen aisle is down to veggies and a few select organic bistro meals. Cookie ,soda, bakery  and juice aisles Not ever! I love my new habits. It makes me feel so much better. What is you favorite grocery aisle?
