What I buy at Whole Foods

Here it is. This post has been a long time coming and a few weeks in the making with all of the craziness of finals behind me I finally had the chance to finish it! Here are my favorite things to shop for at Whole Foods.

Fruits, Veggies, Salad Bar, Coffee Bar- This might seem like an obvious, but it had to be said. Whole Foods has great organic produce and I love stopping by Whole Foods around lunch time to grab something from their salad bar or a coffee or smoothie from the bar.

Kite Hill Almond Milk Cream Cheese- I have never been diagnosed with a dairy intolerance, but all I know is that dairy makes me breakout, bloated, and icky feeling so I try to stay clear. That is why I absolutely love this cream cheese made with just almond milk, salt, enzyme, vinegar, xanthan gum, locust bean gum, guar gum, and cultures. This stuff is so creamy and I love it on toast, or for making cream cheese icing for cakes or cinnamon rolls.

Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee/Hot Chocolate- Yes, you read that right, MUSHROOMS. This company uses organic coffee, cacao, coconut sugar, spices, and mushrooms to make drink mixes to keep you calm, give you energy, boost brain power, and support a healthy metabolism.

Healthade- Favorite booch hands down. Now I know that Whole Foods is not the only place to buy Healthade kombucha, but for the longest time it was the only place I could find it. My favorite flavors are Pink Lady Apple, Pomegranite, California Grape, and Super Greens!

Siete Foods- Tortilla chips… Grain-free tortilla chips… Lime flavored grain-free tortilla chips with avocado oil and sea salt. The more you read on the Siete Foods tortilla chips label the more perfect it gets. These are so stinking good it’s unreal. A little pricey for tortilla chips, but I don’t eat tortilla chips a ton, so they’re definitely worth the splurge to me.

Simple Mills- Again a bit of a splurge, but one of my favorite products of all time. The ingredients for their bread and cake mixes are real as heck and they’re SO STINKING GOOD. I brought over a simple mills cake to my brother’s birthday party and most of my friends wanted this cake over the cookie cake and red velvet bundt cake with cream cheese icing sitting next to it on the table. Let me clarify that these were picky boys who could eat trash food all day long… and they picked this cake. Nuff said.

365 Brand Peanut Butter- The creamiest peanut butter I’ve probably ever tasted. No added sugars, real ingredients. At the end of the day it’s just peanut butter, but, like, REALLY good peanut butter.

Primal Pit Paste- I’ve been trying to find a natural deodorant ever since I read about how awful normal deodorants can be since you can absorb 100% of the chemicals that you put on your armpits and all the scary dangers of aluminum in most deodorants. I’m going to be totally transparent with you here I get pretty sweaty when I workout. I work hard and so finding a natural deodorant that lasts and feels right hasn’t been easy and I’m still looking for the right one for me… but so far this has been my favorite. It smells great, feels nice and holds up during my normal every day activities. The downsides are: 1. it comes in a jar so you have to apply it with your fingers and 2. it doesn’t always hold up for the sweatier workouts so I’ll usually use regular deodorant as a backup. Anyways, still a pretty good product and I thought I should include it.

Cocokind Organic Facial Repair Serum- I’m about to finish out this post with a rant about how much I love Cocokind Skincare products. I’ve recently started using this serum instead of coconut oil as a moisturizer for my face and I’ve found that it absorbs more quickly than coconut oil and still leaves my skin so so soft.

Cocokind Organic All-Over Moisture Stick- The Cocokind sticks are brilliant. you can take them anywhere, apply them easily, and they’re so cute. Although I haven’t tried the beet lip and cheek tint I do love the matcha coconut oil moisture stick and the turmeric spot treatment. I use the moisture stick for my lips and under my eyes and it feels heavenly.

Cocokind Organic Turmeric Spot Treatment- Lastly, the turmeric spot treatment. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory food and has tons of antioxidants so it makes perfect sense for a spot treatment. You can use this on new blemishes or to fade acne scars. Just be careful because turmeric will stain so keep it off of your clothes!
