Tips and Tricks

My Staple Fall/Winter Grocery List


 Where Do I Buy My Groceries?

For fresh produce, I go to my weekly Farmer’s market

  • Pumpkin, Squash, Yams, Zucchini
  • Bell Peppers (Red)
  • Salad greens (whatever is in season)
  • Beets, Potatoes, Carrots, Celery, Mushrooms
  • Apples, Berries

For bulk items, I like Costco.

  • Hemp & chia seeds
  • Nuts (Almonds, Cashews, etc)
  • Quinoa, Rice in bulk
  • Gluten-free crackers or snacks
  • Cans of Amy’s Organic Soup for busy, lazy nights
  • Brown rice pasta, black bean noodles
  • Frozen fruit/veggies (berries, mango, broccoli)
  • Maple syrup, brown rice syrup, coconut sugar

For every-day items, I like My Local Organic Produce/Grocery Store. 

  • tropical fruit and out-of-country produce like avocados, bananas, mangoes, lemons, fresh herbs etc. 
  • Rice vermicelli noodles
  • Garlic, onion, ginger
  • Rice milk with no additives 
  • Seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds)

For every-day staple pantry items, I like Whole Foods: Whole Foods usually has the best sale items, so I stock up on a certain item when I see it on sale. I actually save a lot of money by doing this instead of buying the same products at full price from another grocery store.

  • Organic ketchup
  • Coconut milk, canned organic beans and lentils
  • Tomato sauce, salsa
  • Peanut or almond butter
  • Vegan ice cream
  • Superfoods, spices
  • Oats, dates
